Ignoring Rockets Warnings, Reseeding the Playoffs, NBA Twitter Greatest Hits
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by discussing the Rockets (6:00) and whether we've all been ignoring signs that they are title contenders. Can anyone in the league stop Harden from getting to the rim? Will the supporting cast show up in the playoffs? And who's more likely to get to the Finals between the Rockets and Raptors? Plus: The case for re-seeding the playoffs begins in Houston this year (18:00) but are we sure there's really a problem? From there (34:00), a theory on Anthony Davis' injuries and a discussion of his ongoing run with the Pelicans. Then (45:00): Kawhi Leonard conspiracies, a discussion of plus/minus statistics, the Nets, and the next team to leave the losers lounge. At the end (60:00): Greatest hits from NBA Twitter, more Minnesota takes, and Golliver's goodbyes.
