Mike and Jesse are joined by J. Kyle Mann to discuss this year’s deceptively deep NBA draft and what it could mean for the card prices of the incoming rookie class (0:27). They discuss whether high picks like Cade Cunningham and Jalen Green have superstar potential, some of Kyle’s favorite late-round sleepers, and also touch on some of the recent moves made in free agency by the Los Angeles Lakers. Next, Mike and Jesse discuss Lionel Messi leaving FC Barcelona—and reportedly agreeing to sign with Paris Saint-Germain—and what it could mean for his card price (28:42). They then discuss a few cards Mike bought recently on this week’s Collector’s Corner before closing the show with mailbag questions.
