The Grant Napear Show – April 1, 2013
Grant let it be known that Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson and his group of Sacramento Kings equity investors wanted to go to Wednesday’s NBA meeting in New York with 10,000 season ticket pledges on herewebuy.org, and to start the show Grant was able to happily announce that that goal has been met and exceeded. Grant talked about the efforts to keep the Kings in detail and discussed some of the refereeing mistakes during the Sacramento Kings/Los Angeles Lakers game, opening day MLB matchups and a few of the recent moves around the NFL.
Rich Gannon, former Oakland Raiders quarterback and current CBS Sports NFL analyst, joined Grant today to discuss free agent moves this offseason.
Gannon discussed Matt Flynn being acquired by the Raiders, the need to give GM Reggie McKenzie a few years to revamp the Raiders, whether or not Tony Romo was worth the large contract he just received and Alex Smith’s transition to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hall of Fame quarterback and Seattle Seahawks broadcaster Warren Moon chatted with Grant today about the NFL’s offseason changes.
Moon talked about Matt Flynn’s trade from the Seahawks to the Raiders, shared his thoughts on what he’s seen from Flynn, and compared Tony Romo’s massive new contract with the potential for Aaron Rodgers to get an even bigger contract extension based on his value.
Marc Spears, NBA writer for Yahoo Sports, was on with Grant for some hoops talk as basketball season nears an end.
Spears shared his thoughts on the missed referee calls in Saturday night’s Kings/Lakers game, the changing tone of the NBA BOG vote on where the Kings will be playing next year, the impressive rally by Mayor Kevin Johnson and the equity investors in their efforts to keep the Kings in Sacramento, the need for DeMarcus Cousins to focus on the game of basketball, teams on the bubble of making the playoffs and whether or not any team in the Eastern Conference stands a chance of beating the Miami Heat in a playoff series.
