Reviewing the 2019 GM Survey, Calculated Reputation Tanking, Early Durant Murmurs
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin with two important announcements regarding upcoming events, and then they talk through the results from NBA.com's annual GM survey (7:00). Topics include: Four GMs picking against the Warriors, whether GMs actually answer these surveys, whether players are sabotaging their own reputations as part of a long-term strategy (22:00), Markelle Fultz's jumper, Dejounte Murray's jumper, starting a franchise with Anthony Davis, whether Giannis needs a weightlifting intervention, trusting Dennis Schroeder, believing in Deandre Ayton, and finally some respect for Brad Stevens. At the end (60:00): Durant Knicks buzz and all that entails, sycophant vs. subsequent, Open Floor in the classroom, and more Triangle basketball love.
