Welcome everybody to Down and Distance, where two dads talk sports, music, life and parenting. Jarrett Payton and Shaun Davis discuss the biggest issues and interview the best and brightest.

After missing the playoffs last season, the Chicago Bulls looked to be cleaning house after trading Derrick Rose and letting Joakim Noah walk in free agency.  Then there was draft night, when several trade attempts involving Jimmy Butler fell through.  The organization responded by signing the much maligned Rajon Rondo and a hometown hero beyond his prime in Dwyane Wade.  A mixed bag of question marks as media day approaches next week.

Jarrett Payton and Shaun Davis were joined by NBA writer, Bryan Crawford, to answer some myths about this roster and the power struggle that could ensue.  How will the new face of the franchise and head coach handle the new additions on the court and in the locker room?  Amidst the uproar of protests among athletes across several sports,  the NBA seems to be the perfect platform for it’s continuance. How will Adam Silver and the league respond?
