Zane and Thomas caught wind of three players who won’t be in the mix for MLP Atlanta. Some of them might sit at home in bubble wrap until the ball drops on New Year’s to protect their new contracts. The guys preview the highly anticipated event and share their predictions for who will hoist the cup. 

Thomas recaps the first-ever Bounce Nashville Tournament sponsored by the Tenessee Titans and issues a correction towards USA Pickleball.
