Welcome to this week’s episode of Hot Takedown, our podcast where the hot sports takes of the week meet the numbers that prove them right or tear them down. On this week’s show (June 23, 2015), we discuss the knockout stages of the women’s World Cup, preview the NBA draft and discuss Alex Rodriguez’s monster season.
