Introducing the New Clippers, The State of the Jordan Empire, How to Fix Team USA
On today’s show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver are talking through the Kawhi Leonard and Paul George introductions in L.A. and the reasons to buy or sell what’s next for the Clippers. Topics include: living life like Steve Ballmer, whether Kawhi will ever top his final two months with the Raptors, Paul George’s twist on the OKC story, load management strategies in the West, and a looming war for Andre Iguodala. From there: Zion Williamson signed with Jordan Brand, is 56 year-old Michael Jordan currently more effective as a basketball player than he is as an owner, and would Tim Duncan ever want to be the head coach of the Spurs? At the end: Team USA continues to hemorrhage talent, apologies to our Australian listeners, the way to fix the USA basketball model going forward, updated thoughts on a Bradley Beal trade, solutions to the retired number crisis of the future, and an update on Sharp’s Raptors tribute.
