The Impending LeBron Vacuum, The Suns in the Sarver Wilderness, Other Hot Early March Topics
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by thinking ahead to the playoffs and confronting the reality that LeBron probably won't be there. Who will we focus on instead? Which stars will assume the spotlight? Will casual fans be less interested? And how much of the story could change by this time next season? Then: Reaction to Kevin Arnovitz's excellent story on Robert Sarver and the Phoenix Suns, whether Sarver is the worst owner in the NBA, and whether Suns fans enjoyed reading that article. From there: There are signs of life in Chicago, Lauri Markkanen has been outstanding, and the Gar/Pax tandem is living the first rule of the worst GMs. At the end: Eric Bledsoe and the Bucks-as-Warriors take, how much better the Celtics would be with Steph Curry instead of Kyrie Irving, what's wrong in Boston (again), where have you gone John Stockton, and why isn't Steph in the best player alive conversation?
