The Triple J Train has left the station. Next stop: the 2018 NBA Draft. On today's episode of "Current Sports with Al Martin," Al discusses Jaren Jackson, Jr. and his decision to leave Michigan State University to try his luck in the NBA Draft. Not that he'll need it; Jackson is projected in almost every mock draft as a top-five pick. To close out the show, we then hear from Nate Burleson, a former wide receiver for the Detroit Lions. Burleson recounts some of his conversation with a Detroit cornerback, in which the unnamed CB said that Detroit is, "...where careers go to die." Al gives some thoughts on those comments, as well as on Burleson's response.
