An Early All-NBA Conversation, Bucks-Sixers Takeaways, Pistons Nation Strikes Back
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by taking an early look at the All-NBA candidates across the NBA. Who wins the battle between Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic on the first team? What about Paul George and Kevin Durant? Then: Kawhi vs. Blake on the second team, where to put LeBron, and what to do about that final guard spot on the third team. From there: Giannis was in kill mode, the Sixers had an A+ game, Milwaukee's supporting cast lacks athletes, and other takeaways from Sunday's showcase game. At the end (55:00): Pistons fans strike back after last week's casual dismissals from a West coast candy ass, a discussion of Eastern Conference fringes, and a word about last Friday's sign-off.
