Get the full interview here.

The front office of your favorite team determines their success today and the coming years. Even if they’re fired, the decisions that got them canned affect the team long after they’re gone. One of the issues GMs have to navigate to keep their job, as well as the team healthy, is the salary cap.

It uses certain variables to determine what the cap should be, and crossing this means financial consequences for the teams in violation.

Listen as Nathan and Stephen go over the cap regulations for the NBA and NFL, and they give their takes on how it affects their favorite teams. You can access the full episode here.
