Daly Dose 07-22-20 Our questions for the restart of the NBA season

This week on the Daly Dose, it is National Hot Dog Day, and we discuss that staple of American sports concession stands! 

A major sports story took place last week, but most of the media tended to ignore it. Major League Baseball is returning this week, but most of us will ignore that too.

Two NFL players are hanging up their cleats, but they are each in very different situations, and the former Washington Redskins franchise still has a number of problems to sort out.

Then, we are taking a close look at the restart of the NBA season next week. We have a number of questions for how this will all work. What is the playoff format? How will the play-in tournament work? Who will the neutral court in Orlando favor the most? What is going to happen if someone tests positive? We do our best to answer these questions and many more. 

Finally, we know that the finish to this season is going to be a little weird. Today our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down the Top 5 weirdest moments in NBA history!

The New England Patriots sign QB Cam Newton. What can we expect to see from that move? The NFL made an announcement that isn’t the bad news people think it is, and they also announced they will be making some changes to stadiums this fall, which could present some unique challenges.

Then, with Independence Day coming, we are building some American monuments of our own by assembling Mount Rushmores of some of the greatest sports figures in history. We make memorials for boxing, MLB, college hoops, the NBA, college football, and the NFL! Who are the best of the best?
