RUNDOWN Today’s jam-packed episode begins with finding out that Hotshot was duped by a parody OJ Simpson Twitter account. The guys set the table for what to expect on Mitch Unfiltered moving forward. Mitch and Scott react to free agency news in the NBA which features Brooklyn landing Kyrie and KD. Where will Kawhi end up? Guests include former Husky and recent first round NBA draft pick Matisse Thybulle, Vanderbilt baseball National Champion from Bellevue Ethan Paul, and sports gambling writer for ESPN David Purdum. Movie Mogul Max is back by popular demand to provide three hard-hitting box office breakdowns. Later, Mitch and Scott chat about the United States Women’s World Cup team that is on the brink of another championship, but in doing so has rubbed many people the wrong way during the tournament. Finally, the episode is dedicated not to an athlete that wore jersey #46, rather a PGA golfer who was victorious over the weekend and tragically is unable to share with his parents and girlfriend.
- Matisse Thybulle | Former Husky, current Sixers small forward
- Ethan Paul | Vanderbilt NCAA Baseball Champion, Bellevue native
