Kyrie and Kevin Durant to Brooklyn, The Sixers Steal Horford, The NBA Goes Crazy for 24 Hours
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver recap the first 12 hours of NBA free agency. First: Kyrie Irving is going to Brooklyn and he's bringing Kevin Durant with him (2:00). This is obviously a massive win for the Nets, but is it a good move for Durant? Topics include: a three year-old mailbag question, the IG rollout strategy for KD, a triumph for Brooklyn management, and an uncertain future on the court. Then (33:00): Knicks dreams did not end well, because of course they didn't. Where do things stand after this week? From there (45:00): A look at the Sixers after the Jimmy Butler sign-and-trade and an Al Horford surprise, plus some thoughts on the new direction in Miami. At the end (60:00): The Warriors trade for D'Angelo Russell, the Jazz are building a Finals contender, and it's all about Kawhi Leonard after Sunday.Sports Illustrated is conducting an audience survey to better serve all of our listeners.
