Bucks Get Bledsoe, Kyrie as MVP, Ben Simmons Takeover
On today's show Sharp and Golliver take more questions from listeners and begin by breaking down the Eric Bledsoe trade. Was Greg Monroe really the best Phoenix could do? Where were the Nuggets? And (7:00) where does this leave Giannis and the Bucks? What will they do with Kidd? What about Jabari? And did Sharp will the Bledsoe experiment into existence? From there (26:00): they discuss Kyrie Irving's MVP candidacy, the Celtics' Finals chances, and how to explain the firstmonth in Boston. Then (42:00): rethinking the Sixers over/under, the shocking start for Ben Simmons, and how he compares to Giannis. At the end (52:00): an update on OKC and Billy Donovan, Dirk's twilight, NBA dopplegangers, bicycle cautionary tales, and the birth of the Golli Lama.
