Last Sunday, golf legends Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were joined by football legends Tom Brady and Peyton Manning for a competitive round of golf for charity. While golf is on the mind, today's Boxed In tries to tackle the golf g.o.a.t. debate once and for all. Zach Schwartz is joined by Scott Pianowski and Jay Busbee to pit the Tiger vs. the Golden Bear. Who is the greatest golfer of all time? Is it the game-changing Woods and his 15 major championships or is it the legend Jack Nicklaus and his potentially-insurmountable 18 majors?

Could the Chicago Bulls have won a 7th NBA title?

5/25/2020
The greatest basketball player of all time coming off his second three-peat up against a shortened NBA season, a severed finger tendon, and the greatest power forward of all time. On today's episode of Boxed In, we're having an after party for The Last Dance and enter an alternate basketball timeline to take Michael Jordan up on his declaration that the Bulls would have come back for another year after their 6th championship. If the Chicago Bulls ran it back after 1998, could they pulled off a four-peat and have won a 7th NBA championship? While old foes like the Utah Jazz no longer stand in their way, new rivals have emerged, like a budding dynasty in San Antonio and the revamped New York Knicks with Allan Houston and Latrell Spreewell. Dunk Bait's LaJethro Jenkins presides over arguments from Yahoo's NBA reporters Seerat Sohi and Vincent Goodwill on whether a lockout year, organization-wide infighting, salary cap concerns, and an aging roster meant 1998 was truly The Last Dance for the Bulls.

Which NFL coach would win an imaginary fight: Mike Tomlin vs. Pete Carroll (w/ guest Roy Wood, Jr.)

5/20/2020
NFL coaches are a tightly-wound bunch. When you picture one in your head, you don't usually imagine a jovial or stoic leader, but usually a frenzied maniac screaming into their headset or going insane at a referee, which got us thinking – which NFL coach would you pick in a fight? No NFL coaches were harmed in the making of this podcast, but Yahoo Sports' Liz Loza & Charles Robinson were joined by a very special guest to play out this thought experiment. Roy Wood, Jr. of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, steps into the arena to explain why you don't want to mess with Pittsburgh's Mike Tomlin while Charles argues that Seattle's wily Pete Carroll should not be overlooked. Check out Roy in the current season of The Last O.G. on TBS, Netflix's upcoming Space Force and his Comedy Central webseries Stand-Up Playback with Roy Wood Jr.. Roy's charity tipyourwaitstaff.com is providing relief to the staff of comedy clubs shut-down by the COVID-19 pandemic.

One film's as American as apple pie. The other's as American as a six-pack of Budweiser and Marlboro Lights.

Yahoo's national baseball writer Hannah Keyser adjudicates on a battle over toiling in the minor leagues, playing catch one last time with your dad, and really, the soul of baseball itself.

More Iconic Stadium: Wrigley vs. Fenway

5/13/2020
One has the Green Monster and "Sweet Caroline." The other has an ivy wall and the curse of the pet goat who was kicked out of a World Series game. Major League Baseball's two most iconic stadiums are Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field in Chicago. On today's Boxed In, resident Chicagoan Andy Behrens faces off with knower of all things baseball Mike Oz as they debate which is the more iconic ballpark. The honorable and fair Dan Wetzel, who admittedly grew up in Boston and worked at Fenway as a plucky youth, renders the final verdict on baseball's two most hallowed landmarks.

Best sports uniform to wear casually: Basketball vs. Hockey

5/11/2020
Michael Jordan’s pinstriped 23 on the Chicago Bulls. A throwback Anaheim Mighty Ducks hockey sweater. The sports world is littered with iconic uniforms, but if you only had one sport to choose from to wear to work, a grocery store, or even brunch, what would it be? On today's Boxed In, Yahoo's sartorial scholars Liz Loza, LaJethro Jenkins and Hannah Keyser debate the merits of the best sports uniform to wear in public. While Hannah defends the impeccable hockey sweater, LaJethro argues the basketball jersey is the best choice to wear in public.

Better Basketball Career: 2 Chainz vs. Master P

In the battle between Shaquille O'Neal and Damian Lillard, no clear winner was determined, so Chris Haynes, Zach Schwartz and LaJethro Jenkins are settling the debate with an epic part two that flips the script: which rapper was the best athlete?

More important to the Chicago Bulls: Phil Jackson vs. Scottie Pippen

4/27/2020
Every Batman needs a Robin. Every John Lennon needs a Paul McCartney. Even peanut butter doesn't reach its delectable heights without jelly picking up the slack from time to time. We all know Michael Jordan is the GOAT that led the Chicago Bulls to six championship titles in the '90s. But who was the second banana during the Bulls Dynasty? On today's Boxed In, life-long Chicago Bulls fan Andy Behrens — yes, even during the Eddy Curry years — presides over the arguments of Yahoo's Seerat Sohi and Zach Schwartz to settle the debate over who was more important to the Bulls: Scottie Pippen or head coach Phil Jackson. It's the 7-time NBA All-Star and 8-time member of the NBA All-Defensive First Team vs. the 13-time NBA Champion. It's tenacious D vs. the Zen Master.

Best NFL Draft Class: 1983 vs. 1989

4/22/2020
The 2020 NFL Draft is on Thursday night and while the likes of Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa and Chase Young hope to have Hall of Fame careers, it'll be decades before we can say for sure where in the pantheon the class of 2020 will stand. Could the 2020 rookies reach the heights of the class of 2004 (Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, Philip Rivers) or are we looking at a class of 2002 situation (David Carr, Joey Harrington)? On today's Boxed In, the argument focuses on two of the greatest draft classes of all time. Pete Thamel will be the final arbiter for a potentially unfair debate between Terez Paylor who argues in favor of John Elway, Dan Marino and the class of 1983 and Charles Robinson, who makes the case for Troy Aikman, Barry Sanders and the class of 1989.

One was a Heisman-winning quarterback and a semi-successful NFL pro. The other was the greatest basketball player to ever grace the hardwood. Both were pretty bad at minor league baseball. Yes, it's Michael Jordan and Tim Tebow. One hung up the high-tops for questionable reasons to try his luck at double-A ball and, after the NFL didn't pan out for him, the other has been toiling away in the Mets farm system while moonlighting as a commentator on the SEC network.
