LeBron's Trade Demand, All-Star Takes, Team World vs. Team USA
On today's show Sharp and Golliver begin by discussing Ben's completely reasonable proposal for LeBron to demand a trade from the Cavs. Where would he go? Why would it make sense? Why won't it happen? And is LeBron becoming the Brett Favre of basketball? Then: they follow-up on Jason Kidd's oral history of his phone call with Giannis (21:00), and discuss the All-Star selections (28:00), All-Star fixes, Team Steph vs. Team LeBron, and All-Star uniforms. At the end (45:00), they answer some follow-up questions regarding Sharp's international basketball feature from last week, including the legend of Kukoc, Jokic in Denver, American players abroad, story time with Nellie, and Team World vs. Team USA.
