By - Kris Fletcher & Tim Swift

In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we take a look back at the opening round of the NBA playoffs, preview the conference semi-finals, discuss Josh Hamilton's red-hot start to the baseball season, and debate if it's time for the Red Sox to move Josh Beckett!

- NBA Playoffs: Now that Round 1 is in the books, we look back at the eight opening round matchups, and follow that up with a full preview of Round 2.

- Hamilton in the Groove: Josh Hamilton is pounding the ball at a record pace for the Texas Rangers this season. If he can stay healthy and avoid demons from his past, does he have a legitimate shot to win the American League Triple Crown this year?

- Beckett in Hot Water: Over the last two seasons in Boston, it seems like Josh Beckett has been connected to controversy more so than winning. Is it time for the Red Sox to ship off their former ace? Our answers may surprise you.

All this and much more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!

  1. First podcast I've listened to. I enjoyed it. Keep up the good work guys.

  2. You guys may want to rethink where you stand on how important Bosh is to the Heat. They looked awful against the Pacers in game 2 without him. Haha

    1. The way LeBron and Wade are playing, Bosh wouldn't help regardless. Lol
