The NBA Draft begins tomorrow, and it's the Philadelphia 76ers, not the Boston Celtics, who will have the first pick.

The Celtics have traded their number one pick to the 76ers in exchange for the 3rd round pick this year, and a first round pick in 2018 or 2019. This has led to speculation about the Celtics' larger strategy.

We talk about the decision, as well as a Supreme Court case with potential implications for the Washington Redskins and drug policies on the PGA tour, with Bill Littlefield.
