Three Teams to Ignore, Kyrie vs. Cleveland, Utah National Parks
On today's show Sharp and Golliver begin by listing three teams they're not interested in this season, including thoughts on the Kings, Bulls, Knicks, Raptors, Pistons, Grizzlies, and Warriors. At 18 minutes they talk through Joel Embiid's debut, Jahlil Okafor's place in Philly, the outlook for Ben Simmons, and the state of Markelle Fultz. Then, mailbag (33 minutes): Can the Nets make the playoffs? How should Boston feel about Isaiah? How should Cleveland feel about Kyrie? Are there any NBA players who couldn't execute a full court press on Sharp? If the Warriors didn't exist, could the Rockets beat the Cavs? At the end (55 minutes): podcast recommendations, plagiarism allegations, and Golliver gives a detailed scouting report of Utah's national parks.
