Bill Simmons connects with his dad to talk about the Celtics’ second playoff win over the 76ers, how Philly can get back on track, the Red Sox, and (maybe) for the last time revisit the Patriots’ 2018 draft picks (3:10). Then, Nathan Hubbard calls in to talk about his vision for next-gen ticket sales and his new company, Rival, as well as LAFC’s new stadium and being a sports parent (39:45).
