Last Minute Awards Picks, Our First Real NBA Preview
On today's show Sharp and Golliver offer their first and only serious predictions for the NBA season. They begin (3 minutes) by picking surprise teams this season, including the Pistons, Bucks, Wolves, and Heat. Then (10 minutes) they look for potential flops in 2018, including the Bucks, Blazers, and Thunder. Then (20 minutes): picks for MVP, rookie of the year, coach of the year, most improved, sixth man, and defensive player of the year. Then (40 minutes) they pick the playoff brackets in the East and West, and answer questions (45 minutes) on the Cavs-as-Knicks, DeAndre Jordan trades, the state of the Grizzlies. At the end (60 minutes): a unifying theory of Jordan Bell and Gar Forman, a note from Puerto Rico, Ben's Vegan habits, the best fantasy basketball league, and the worst baseball game ever.
