The Bulls and the Almost-Mutiny, Dream Playoff Matchups, Ben Simmons for Luka Doncic
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver are live in LA and they begin the show with reminders to watch SI's Sportsperson of the Year Awards Thursday at 9 pm EST on NBC Sports Network and subscribe to Ben's Washington Post newsletter. Then they talk through Milwaukee's George Hill trade (8:00) and then move to disastrous weekend of the Chicago Bulls (12:00). From there they transition to discussing their dream playoff matchups after 25 games (30:00), including Lakers-Warriors, Lakers-Clippers, Warriors-Rockets in the life comes at you fast sequel, Sixers-Celtics ten year war, and Thunder-Jazz part two. Then: whether Kyle Lowry is player tanking after his comments on Masai Ujiri, whether Devin Booker is Tim Hardaway Jr. with better PR, and who says no to a Ben Simmons or Luka Doncic trade. At the end: putting Free Solo in an NBA context, not using Spotify, and another salute to Aaron Copeland.
