Finding a Home for Westbrook, Revisiting All the Kawhi Moves, Don't Forget that Anthony Davis Exists
On today's show AndrewSharp and Ben Golliver begin by lamenting the state of summer league and shifting their focus to yet another offseason subplot: Where will Russell Westbrook land? Topics include: the state of Westbrook and why he should seek a trade, the contenders to land him, the Heat as favorites, a case for the Wizards, potential curveballs, and more. Then (27:00): Some thoughts on 9 minutes of Zion Williamson and the class of absentee rookies in Vegas. From there (38:00): Revisiting the Kawhi bombshell, including thoughts on whether Kawhi has been handed the "best player alive" label too quickly and whether the Clippers should be title favorites. At the end (46:00): A glass half-full take on the Lakers after this weekend's Kawhi defeat, whether the Raptors would prefer to lose Masai or Kawhi, the stakes for the Bucks this season, and a nod at the sleeping giant in the West.
