Rockets Reality Check, Debating the New DeRozan, Choose Your Coach
On today's show Sharp and Golliver reunite to provide a post-holidays update to Golliver’s December discussion of Sharp’s crumbling basketball world. After a brief overview at the beginning (1:00), they focus on the Rockets (8:00) and what's become complicated since Houston opened the year looking like the NBA's newest Warriors threat. Then they discuss the excellent year of DeMar DeRozan in Toronto (22:00), his 52-point performance against Khris Middleton, and where he belongs in the hierarchy of NBA stars. From there they move to Ben Simmons and the Sixers' recent struggles (35:00), the NBA's most depressing arenas (42:00), and a few trade possibilities in New Orleans. At the end (53:00) they touch on the value of potential in the NBA Draft and the wild year of Trae Young at Oklahoma, then discuss which coaches they'd want to play for if they were NBA players.
