Star of Cal State Fullerton, Estonia, China, and basketball courts everywhere, Josh Akognon joins me to talk about chasing his NBA dreams, his values, and how the road to the pros moves along for a top scoring point guard. I thank Josh for taking a few minutes to catch up for a little 1-on-1 this morning. Josh led the Kings in scoring during summer camp and hopes to acquire a roster spot on an NBA team for the upcoming 2012-2013 NBA season. Enjoy. Really glad to have had the chance to catch up  with him as we both chase our dreams and continue our careers. Josh is one of the most lights-out shooters I have ever seen, and I hope to see him in the NBA very soon. Read more about our chat here. Thanks for listening!

Six time Tour De France Champion Lance Armstrong cheated death, but is he a cheater?  500 plus tests have shown no guilt on Lance Armstrong.  Can we still have heroes? Must they only be those who have left this earth? We get into the debate and conversation about the allegations against Lance Armstrong, who apparently has 10 ex-team mates ready to testify against him.  Do we need to know? Roger thinks so. What do you think? Here's our conversation from July 9th, 2012. Let me know at @DannyHauger on Twitter.

Congrats to the Angels All-Stars!

Mike Trout is the marquee announcement this week in his rookie year. Trout wasn't even on the fan ballot when the year began as he played in the minors. Now, Mike Trout is the youngest player in Angels history and the seventh-youngest position player in American League history to be named an All-Star.

The five-tool Trout outfielder was one of four Angels players selected for next week's Midsummer Classic in Kansas City when rosters were unveiled via the MLB All-Star Selection Show Sunday. Joining him as a reserve on the American League roster, managed by Rangers skipper Ron Washington, will be outfielder Mark Trumbo, along with pitchers Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson.

"It's awesome getting picked," the 20-year-old Trout said. "I'm getting chills thinking about it right now. Getting to represent the Angels, having Trumbo make it and C.J. and Weave, it's great", Trout told Alden Gonzalez this week.

We watch with high expectations for Mike Trout from Angels Radio AM 830 to see what unfolds as the young star continues to gain attention for his hard work and tremendous skill set. Congrats Mike!
