Jokic and the MVP Conversation, Midseason Celtics Check, Your Best Boylen Suggestions
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by discussing the outstanding performance of Nikola Jokic in December this season and whether he belongs in the MVP conversation. Then (11:00): Paul George has an MVP case of its own, and they discuss the ceiling in OKC and Denver, along with an early look at the MVP top five as of Christmas, and some polite bickering about KD. Then (24:00): Checking in with the Celtics, dying on a Kyrie hill, and worrying about Al Horford. From there (32:00): Rounding out the Lakers/AD conversation with some realism, addressing the Pacers and Clippers, and Knicks ownership. At the end (51:00): A sample of listener coaching memories that could help the Chicago Bulls, haunting high school football memories, and a shoutout to sonographers all over the world.
