The End of Westbrook's Prime, Celtics Sweeping Toward Milwaukee, Donovan Mitchell and D'Angelo Russell
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by talking Russell Westbrook in the middle of a difficult first round series. Topics include: Whether this postseason marks the end of Westbrook's prime, ongoing battles with Damian Lillard, last year's Jazz series, not making the Carmelo mistake, playing with *a* purpose, the origins of Westbrook backlash, and what all of this might mean for the future in Oklahoma City. From there (34:00): Why does everyone continue believing in Celtics hype? What will a Boston-Milwaukee series look like? And what about Kawhi and the Raptors on the other side of the bracket? Then (50:00): Jamal Murray for Ben Simmons and why neither team would do it, the Nuggets fighting back against the Spurs, and various highlights from the playoff podium. At the end (60:00): the Rockets in game 3, the futures of Donovan Mitchell and D'Angelo Russell, and shoutout to Caris LeVert. A special thanks to our sponsors at Robinhood.
