Gary and Chris welcome in John Martin, co-host of “Jason and John” on 92.9 ESPN in Memphis, to today’s show, but, first, the boys jump all over Lavar and Lonzo Ball’s new “Big Baller Brand” ZO2 sneaker debut.

The guys then discuss Nick Saban’s new contract and how it’s led back to the narrative of paying NCAA scholarship players, with Chris bringing up new ideas to change specific rules in a way that makes sense.

After that, the guys welcome in John Martin (from 92.9 ESPN in Memphis / @JohnMartin929 on Twitter) and start off discussing Shinedown and the Beale Street Music Festival before they hit on the Tubby Smith fit at Memphis, whether or not John, as a fan, is excited about a fresh start for the basketball program next year, what the Grizzlies should do about their future and the most likely player to sign elsewhere this offseason, The Rock running for President, and, finally, some Oakland Raiders talk to close out the interview.

Gary then moves Chris on to NFL talk, discussing Verizon’s exclusive deal with the NFL for global broadcast rights of the Jags/Ravens NFL game in London this year, and Bill Belichick bringing in a trick shot kicker to try out during mini-camp.

Finally, the guys explore the possibility of the ACC Network still launching, and discuss whether or not the SEC Network is profitable for ESPN.
