Jackie MacMullan, ESPN, joined the show to discuss how much things have changed in the course of one week. She spoke about how the Hawks will pack the paint tonight, how Jared Sullinger shouldn't start, how Atlanta will let Marcus Smart shoot, and predicts a Celtics win.

[0:03:05] ... eat your best option there quoted the defense. You know we saw Kyle Korver light him up when he defend he when he was defending him it put him on jet. What's can be a problem and it's going to be a problem either way with him defending anyway he can't defend. Any of their guys so I think you've got to get him involved in the offense and I know big part of it you tonight we talked about this than before. There's a big difference between regular season Isiah Thomas. And postseason I think is because the game changes. It becomes a far more physical game it becomes a game we didn't game plan and you could shut him down. But if you don't get him involved and after tonight agree with the have a dramatic amateur has got to be more involved. In the offense and you take Isaiah off the ball a little bit. You've got to get Isiah Thomas in volt. In your offensive you don't your screw. When you are and I think everybody concede that it's. You know I ...

The passing of Prince brings the guys to discuss all the beautiful women that the music icon has slept with.
ESPN's firing of Curt Schilling has been a divisive topic. John, Gerry and Kirk discuss who's supporting Curt, who's detracting, and callers discuss North Carolina law that started the entire controversy.
David Price had one of the worst starts of his career, and in the middle of a winnable game, John Farrell entrusts little-known William Cuevas to keep the team in it.

This grainy, poorly transferred recording is the best tribute I can give to the late, great Prince the day after his untimely death. It is, of course, the halftime show he did at Super Bowl XLI, otherwise known as “The Super Bowl Where Peyton Manning Won an Undeserved MVP,” otherwise known as “One of the Worst Super Bowls Ever” and more often, “The Super Bowl Where the Halftime Show was Way Better Than the Game.”

I’m forever biased toward U2’s stirring and emotional 9/11 tribute in Super Bowl XXXVI, otherwise known as “The One Where a Dynasty Was Born,” but I have no problems saying Prince’s performance that night is the second-best halftime show ever. He was at the height of his powers, his song selection perfect, and the fact that it actually rained through “Purple Rain” made the whole scene surreal.

I hate to be That Guy, the wannabe hipster who tries to prove he’s cooler than you because he liked an artist way before you did, but I’m being completely truthful when I say I was in on the ground floor of Prince. I saw “Purple Rain” the movie twice in the first weekend it hit the theaters. I’m lucky to have three older brothers who, to their undying credit, were into a much more eclectic musical selection than everyone else I knew in Weymouth. So I had “For You, Prince,” “Dirty Mind” and “Controversy” at my disposal during my formative years. One of my brothers saw Prince play at Metro on Lansdowne Street for five bucks. He came out in a G-string held up with suspenders, played every single instrument on the stage and had simulated sex.

So it was a long road from there to the Super Bowl. Especially given that the NFL is run by billionaires who, while my brother was watching him pretend-hump his bass player in a club behind Fenway, were predisposed toward halftime “entertainment” like this:

But Prince’s unmistakable talent would not be held back. Tragically, he’s gone and his like will pass this way but once. RIP.
