Warriors and Cavs Attrition, Bulls Tanking, Hayward Alternate Ending
On today's episode Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin with quick thoughts after a weekend watching Michigan, Michigan St., UMBC, college refs, Syracuse's zone, and the rest of the NCAA Tournament. Then they move back to the NBA (11:34), where injuries to the Cavs, Warriors, and Celtics are quickly becoming the biggest story of the NBA's stretch run. Can the Cavs survive without Ty Lue? Should the Celtics be worried? Is Steph a system player? And then: is Draymond Green really a top 10 player (20:00), and how does the rest of the top 10 look right now? From there (30:00) they talk Raptors/Thunder, Doc Rivers fines, and lessons for the league after the Bulls failed tanking expedition. At the end (55:00): Adding NBA players to college teams to beat the Wizards, adding Gordon Hayward and Lamarcus Aldridge to the Jazz and Blazers, Steven Adams and Dwight Howard on an island, and more Harry vs. Frodo analysis.
