30 Teams 30 Questions, Part I: Jimmy and the Wolves, Lakers Predictions, and a West Preview
On today's show Sharp and Golliver begin by recapping the madness at Wednesday's Wolves practice, taking stock of the Jimmy Butler situation as of Wednesday night, and talking through the Wolves outlook from here. Then, in the first part of a two-part episode (blame Jimmy Butler), they jump into their NBA Preview. Topics include: The Mavericks and Dirk's twilight (31:00), the pace of the Pelicans (38:00), Jokic defense and buy or sell on the Nuggets (43:00), the Thunder and whether Bully Ball can work (48:00), the Rockets, another damn Harden argument, and a Butler trade (54:00), the Clippers and more media tanking (1:02:00), the Lakers and various predictions regarding wins, Ingram, LeBron, and Lonzo (1:10), and a semi-winning environment in Memphis(1:21). At the end (1:25): Ayton Island, Blazers takes, Jazz optimism, Spurs realism, and a Warriors reality check. (Note: They forgot the Sacramento Kings and will address them on Monday morning.)
