Jabrill Peppers Drug Test; NFL Draft; Little Caesars Arena Hosting College Basketball; Porter "What's Gravity" Maberry; The Dunk King.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" the NFL Draft is looming, and a cloud is hanging over one prominent Michigan prospect. Jabrill Peppers failed his drug test, but what exactly does that mean? Al and engineer Isaac Constans describe how bad it could be for his draft stock and why it should be taken with a grain of salt. The list of other potential first round picks with questionable off-the-field character are also read aloud. Then, Al visits the topic of the first big get for Little Caesars Arena. An inspiration on and off the court, 5-foot-5-inch TNT "The Dunk King"  champion Porter Maberry calls into the show. From his training regimen to his rapid rise to fame, Porter takes listeners through how he became a YouTube sensation and basketball's most notorious dunker. To finish the show, a surface overview of the NBA Playoffs and Detroit Tigers' upcoming series versus the Seattle Mariners winds the clock down.
