Blazers/Raptors Summit, Time Machine Title Race, Most Unimproved Player
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by talking through the Blazers and Raptors (5:00). First: What did we learn from the Blazers winning streak? How close could they play the Rockets in the playoffs? Then they move to the Raptors (16:00). Is this the best challenger LeBron has ever faced in the East? And why should anyone believe Cleveland can guard them in the playoffs? From there they move to Kyrie Irving and John Wall in the top 15 (32:00) and more bizarre Kawhi news out of San Antonio (35:00). Then: the time machine title race (42:00), the most unimproved players of the year (48:00), the Sixers and the Process and the future of Okafor (55:00), Team USA in Melbourne (1:02) and relegating teams to Euroleague. At the end: British slang and team nicknames, our first brickhead NBA star, #TeamTolkien gets the last word, and the internet in Ireland.
