The Kevin Durant Game, The Rodney Hood Game, Final Colangelo Thoughts
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver discuss all things NBA Finals. First, they recount the thrills of the Rodney Hood game and a Game 3 that was way more fun than it should have been. Then they talk about the spectacular night of Kevin Durant (12:00), what that performance says about his place in the league, his future with Golden State, and the difference between these Warriors titles and the Cavs in '16. Then Sharp recounts his journey through the content machine (37:00) after a week of "reporting" gone awry. From there (45:00) they discuss the NBA media's treatment of LeBron vs. Durant, whether Warriors domination is secretly helping LeBron's legacy, and how that could shape this summer. At the end (63:00): Final thoughts on Bryan Colangelo, the proper level of sympathy, the future of NBA social media, Instagram, and Ben's minivan.
