Kyrie's February vs. LeBron's February, The Clippers as a Sleeping Giant, The New Best Player Alive
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin with a discussion of the great LeBron/Kyrie leadership and accountability summit and its disastrous bi-coastal aftermath. First, in Boston (6:00), the Celtics have lost four straight games since the All-Star Break, but Sharp makes a case for believing in their ceiling regardless and not falling into the trap of Celtics hater hubris. Then (20:00): Jayson Tatum vs. Brandon Ingram after three scintillating weeks in Los Angeles, a brief call for Anthony Davis to take matters into his own hands, and the state of LeBron after two catastrophic Lakers loss. From there (48:00): The possibilities for the Clippers this summer, why Kawhi and Kemba might make sense, and why various alternatives may not. At the end (65:00): Who is the new best player alive? What co-star can save Space Jam 2? And is America ready for the Atlanta Hawks takeover that's coming in the next decade?
