Anthony Davis Possibilities, De'Aaron Fox Kings Hyperbole, Instantly Regrettable Wizards Optimism
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by discussing the state of Anthony Davis in New Orleans. Is it time for him to embrace a change? If he demands a trade this summer, where could he land? Topics include: Sharp being right since October, the recruiting war brewing between Kyrie and LeBron, the case for the Warriors, Embiid-for-AD, the Bulls or Knicks as wild card entrants, and whether Davis or his representatives would ever try to force a trade in the middle of the season. Then: More highlights from the Jim Boylen experience (32:00), buying into Emmanuel Mudiay (37:00), and not quite buying into the Kings as the best backcourt outside Golden State but loving them anyway, and trying to explain what happened with the Suns/Grizzlies/Wizards disaster on Friday night (48:00). At the end (60:00): Some Wizards optimism after Sunday's John Wall performance and the Ariza/Oubre swap (and before Tuesday night's Hawks game).
