In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and the Gist’s Mike Pesca discuss a whole bunch of sports conundrums. Among the questions they ponder: How many seventh-grade basketball players would it take to beat LeBron James? How would you change an NBA court or an NFL field if irregularities were allowed? What’s a more worthwhile career—a few years of brilliance or a decade-plus of mediocrity?

On this week’s Slate Plus bonus segment, Stefan and Josh are joined by the Political Gabfest’s David Plotz to puzzle through yet more sports conundrums. Visit Slate.com/hangupplus and try it free for two weeks.
