The King might become the president, Major League Baseball might be be dragging itself into the 21st century and the Dodgers can't seem to lose. That means it's time for sports! We're joined by Andy and Brian Kamenetzky; they've covered sports for the L.A. Times and ESPN.  

The Dodgers are still in first place in the National League. What's the reason for their continuing success?

The Dodgers may be for real, but it looks like an interview with former Yankees outfielder Shane Spencer wasn't. A supposed interview Spencer did with Mike Lindsey of ESPN Radio on Monday has been exposed as a hoax.

On the topic of baseball, the MLB is finally considering expanding its use of instant replay. How will this affect the game and its viewers?

Last time we saw Kobe Bryant on the court, he was limping off with a torn achilles tendon. He says it feels good now. What might next season look like for him?

Back in April, NBA player Jason Collins made history by coming out as the first openly gay athlete in America's most popular sports. He's a free agent now, but could that change soon?

Lebron James is arguably the best player in basketball right now. He's a two-time champ and four-time league MVP, but it looks like he won't be adding Players' Union President to that list.

Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel is still in the hot seat following allegations that he violated NCAA rules by selling his autograph. More people are coming forward with the same story.
