NBA: Preseason-Portland Trail Blazers at Toronto Raptors Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Tara, Kendyl and Karol Collymore of XRAY-FM in the Morning cover a wide range of topics from how we as fans judge players, what do players really “owe” us, using sport as a platform and what role sports plays in community activism and involvement.

Join us this week as we talk about players asking for trades, why we are worried about super teams and will this be Jake Layman’s year? We share how we are coping with LeBron in a Laker jersey, preview some of the Eastern Conference teams that intrigue us and ask does Lonzo Ball deserve to be in Space Jam 2 and so much more.
