Robb Tribble kicked off the final segment of the third hour of the show talking about how the NBA is addressing mental health for its players.  Robb talked about how the league is once again leading the charge and proactively addressing issues.  He talked about how Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young, who was also acknowledged by NBA.com as the “preseason” pick for Rookie of the Year as well as for his play during Summer League, has had his own issues that have led him to not turn on TV after games and turn off social media.  Robb also spoke on and played sound from Cleveland Cavaliers Forward/Center Kevin Love and San Antonio Spurs Guard/Forward Demar DeRozan, both of whom have been vocal about mental health.  Robb then talked about and spoke with listeners about differences that the millennial generation has to deal with that other generations didn't have to deal with in terms of how this issue has come to light in recent years, as well as how different generations have handled addressing mental health.
