On today’s episode Tom & I were joined by Tony East, host of Locked on Pacers, and Pacers reporter for Forbes, The Fieldhouse, and the West Indianapolis Community News. We discussed a myriad of topics associated with the imminent season restart, the problems arising, and dove into the reports on the safety and health guidelines being put in place for the Orlando bubble that were released by Shams Charania of The Athletic. Thanks to Tony for coming on! Always a pleasure.
