The Anthony Davis Reminder, West Playoff Race, Tanking Tournaments
On today's show Sharp and Golliver talk through the first weekend of games since the All-Star Game. At the top, Anthony Davis after an outrageous set of performances against the Heat and Bucks (2:00), including his MVP case, how he stacks up next to the best players in the league, and whether the Pelicans can make a run. Then (13:00): handicapping the chaos in the West, Jimmy Butler's injury and the concerns for the Wolves, Warriors/Thunder Saturday night, Zaza's latest controversy, and Pop's latest recruiting pitch. From there (32:00) they move to the NBA's proposal for a play-in tournament and some tanking solutions that would make more sense. At the end (44:00): Damian Lillard's MVP case, the complicated Nuggets future, the delayed rise of Moreyball, the atmosphere in DC, and the step mom in Golden State.
