This week on The Atlantic Files:

So, here we are again, another post-season with the Atlantic Division ousted before they were expected to. Ben Simmons’s future with the Philadelphia 76ers is in question, the Brooklyn Nets fell apart health-wise, and now the off-season is here.

First of all, we have our co-host back!! Mike Bash is back and here to stay as the permanent co-host of the show and it’s been too long since he’s last hosted. Make sure you all reach out and welcome him back!

Of course, we had to check in on the Brooklyn Nets and what happened in their Game 7 and the Nets/Bucks series. Injuries are something we all saw and understood as part of the downfall. However, what about some of the things people overlooked about this team? Also, will the Milwaukee Bucks end up winning the championship this year?

Then, the Philadelphia 76ers also went down much earlier than expected. They dropped a Game 7 to the Atlanta Hawks and as Ben Simmons got worse throughout the series, the Philly fans grew less patient with him. So the biggest question now is do the Sixers trade Simmons, or do they work with him and try to improve him for the next year? Also, what could they even get for him?

Finally, we took a look at the rest of the teams still in the playoffs. We predicted the outcomes of the Conference Finals as well as the Finals.

Hear all of that and more on the latest episode!

Being from the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was hard not to become a Sixers fan during Allen Iverson's prime. Other than just the Sixers, I enjoy watching all forms and levels of basketball, especially the WNBA. Outside of basketball, I've been playing and coaching volleyball for most of my life. Also, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I became a Software Developer by day, while writing and hosting podcasts by night.
