LeBron and Lonzo, Vegas Standouts, and End-of-Summer Mailbag
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver check in one more time from Vegas summer league. First: What is going on with LeBron James? Why was Lonzo wearing Nikes against the Sixers? Where do Magic and Pelinka fit in? How is it connected? Then: Who are the standouts among the rookies in Vegas? Is Donovan Mitchell about to take over the league? What about Dennis Smith? How good would OKC have to be for Paul George to stay? Why hasn't John Wall signed his extension? Who are on the "if he could shoot" All-Stars? At the end: Recommendations for basketball books and a good drone price point, a deeply insulting NBA comparison, and some notes from an impromptu Open Floor field trip.
