CL Pod 76: Bird & the NBA's new DV policy, future HoF classes & more

With training camp looming just over the horizon, most of us would like to be turning our attention to the goings-on of the Boston Celtics with renewed fervor given the lofty expectations for this year's squad.

Leave it to life to make that a fraught proposition, however, with news of Jabari Bird's arrest on domestic violence charges, putting the Celtics (and the NBA) into unchartered territory, as the latter has introduced a new, redesigned domestic violence protocol with little precedent to work with, but good science behind it. 

Three former members of the Celtics are now new members of the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame, the candidacy of at least one stirring up those debates of who belongs in what halls of fame and why, and there's been a predictable uptick in Celtics-related news as camp draws closer. This week, join Topher Lane and Justin Quinn as they try their best to tackle all the highs and lows since our last podcast.
