Chris Haynes is joined by SiriusXM's Amin Elhassan to discuss the impending verdict in the Derek Chauvin murder trial. Recently, the NBA released a memo as the league prepares to potentially postpone multiple nights of games if Chauvin is acquitted. The NBA is primed to hit another flash-point as the lessons and protests from 2020 still seem meaningless in the face of continued police violence. (4:00)

Later in the podcast, Amin & Chris react to a number of stories from around the league:

• LaMarcus Aldridge's surprise retirement due to a heart condition (13:30)

• Zion Williamson's first professional game in Madison Square Garden and subsequent post-game comments that sent Knicks fans into a tizzy (19:05)

• Victor Oladipo's latest injury in Miami and his ceiling as a player (25:00)

• De'Aaron Fox vs. Ja Morant (30:20)

• Stephen Curry's streak of 30-point games. (39:45)
