Sports Illustrated’s Jake Fischer joins host Daniel Popper this week on the Daily News Sports Talk Podcast — A.K.A The Popcast — to recap and analyze the NBA Trade Deadline. Fischer and Popper discuss the Knicks and Celtics standing pat, the Kings dealing Boogie Cousins, the Sixers sending Nerlens Noel to Dallas for a below-value return, and much more. Also, in his opening monologue, Popper shares the story of Mack Beggs, a 17-year-old transgender boy who won a girls’ high school state wrestling title in Texas. In the face of discrimination and unfair treatment, Beggs continues to pursue his passion on the mat, and Popper explains why he’s an inspiration for everyone in these trying times.
