The Warriors Sweep, Another Giannis Revelation, NBA Finals First Takes
On today's show, Ben Golliver is joined by special guest Rob Mahoney of Sports Illustrated live in Portland after the Warriors swept the Blazers to reach their fifth straight Finals. Ben and Rob dig deep into the legacy implications of Stephen Curry's big series, Draymond Green's wrecking ball impact, The Meyers Leonard Game, and Steve Kerr's wacky 12-man rotation. From there, they bounce over to the Eastern Conference finals to discuss Ben's latest Giannis Revelation from his time in Milwaukee, Kawhi Leonard's big answer in Game 3, and whether Toronto has found a winning formula. They conclude by forecasting the possible Finals match-ups and answering reader questions. Are bigs still getting played off the court in the playoffs? Have the conference finals been a bust? Andrew Sharp will be back later this week to talk Magic Johnson’s nuclear bomb, Tim Connelly stiffing the Wizards and more.
