We’re back with a new Brew. Jay Wright is retiring from coaching. The 76ers lead their series against the Raptors. Are they serious contenders to win the NBA Championship? Will Ben Simmons be back on the court soon? There’s some big new albums about to drop. The Summer of Cena may return. We have a lot to get to, so let’s do this! It’s Brew time.
Jay Wright bombshell

nobody has ever been closer to the “cool guy walking away from an explosion” thing that happens in movies than Jay Wright saying “bang” and quietly walking away while his team won the national championship on a buzzer-beater pic.twitter.com/hVvaEEvdSR
