All-Star Game Reactions, Dunk Contest Angst, Alien Abductions
On today's show Sharp and Golliver check in from Los Angeles to recap NBA All-Star Weekend. First, they talk through a surprisingly not-terrible All-Star game and the ongoing dominance of LeBron James. Plus: the tragic demise of Team Steph, the clutch performance of James Harden, and the arrival of Joel Embiid. From there they move to the rest of the weekend, beginning with Adam Silver's comments on the playoff format (18:00) and LeBron's response to Laura Ingraham. Then (29:00) they talk through the three-point contest, L.A. logistics, Donovan Mitchell and the overdose of dunk nostalgia, the scandalous results on Saturday night, and the dramatic tale of Ben's Rising Stars MVP vote. At the end (44:00): Sneaker brand winners and losers, best All-Star moments, the implications of an alien abduction, and the possibility of LeBron and KD on the same team.
