Dwyane Wade, Detroit Tigers, Chicago Bulls, Deyonta Davis, Denzel Valentine, Darrius Gregory, Philando Castile, and Alton Sterling.

Beginning the show, Al hits on the Detroit Tigers finally breaking the loss streak to the Cleveland Indians. What changed? And from Chicago, the Bulls have attracted all sorts of different guards. Engineer Isaac Constans reveals his hatred for Dwyane Wade but explains why his move to Chicago is so good for Denzel Valentine. The rest of the show takes a turn to the social justice side, away from sports. Darrius Gregory, president of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the Zeta Delta chapter, takes his seat on the show to discuss with Al the recent shootings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling. The two engage in a long, heartfelt conversation about the current conflict between African-Americans and police in America. The talk is carried over for the rest of the show, as different voices also weigh in.
