(00:00-14:21) It is General Knowledge Wednesday on The Mike Missanelli Show. Jen is under the weather so Andrew Salciunas is filling in for her for the first hour. Mike starts off reacting to Dr. J’s comments about Nikola Jokic and how he believes he deserves the MVP award over Joel Embiid. These remarks didn’t go over well with Mike, Tyrone, and Andrew. Doc’s comments weren’t valid and what was said is being perceived as backstabbing. The crew gives their thoughts.
(14:31-21:03) Andrew introduces today’s Twitter poll. What was Dr. J’s motivation to hurt Joel Embiid’s MVP case nationally? Your choices are Jealousy, Generic Hate, and Game Has Passed Him. Mike introduces todays General Knowledge categories. They are NBA questions, Oscars Best Actors and baseball questions.
(21:14-35:52) Hall of Fame Baseball writer for The Athletic Jayson Stark joins the show and talks about the Phillies being a playoff team, the surprising arms during Spring Training, the ridiculous amount of bats in their lineup, and more!
