With the 2017-18 NBA regular season coming to an end this week, we thought we would take a look back at the season that was, podcast style.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy this 'Best Of' episode of Road Trippin'!
Episode 76: Denver Nuggets Takeover
Trey Lyles makes his debut as Mason Plumlee, Paul Millsap (cameo) & Ally Sturm ride alongside Richard for another episode of RT!

Kentucky, Duke & Arizona all in one room makes for a fun conversation (don’t believe me - just listen). They then get into epic and/or first hand experienced “NBA scuffles” which Channing and Trey have had one of their own ... as well as spend some time simply getting to know the Kentucky Wildcat Alum, turned NBA Pro!
