Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score !
This week, our panel wraps up the NBA conference semi-final round, as San Antonio’s Big Three could possibly ride off into the sunset and the Raptors & Heat take their series to a Game 7. Also, Stephen Curry wins his second straight MVP award, this time in unanimous fashion. Plus, a look in on baseball, the NHL, and the explanation of the origins of “Rampant Blackneckary”.
All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
This week’s panel features returning guest Morgan P. Campbell (@morganpcampbell), sports business writer for the Toronto Star, and regular #KTSPod co-host Don Delarente (@dondelarente). This episode is moderated by Jessy (@thatssojessy).
