LeBronzo Part Deux, Warriors Without Steph, Overrated/Underrated Playoff Teams
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by discussing LeBron's weekend in Los Angeles. Why was so the visit to L.A. so underwhelming? What did we learn (if anything) about this current Cavs group? What about Magic and Rich Paul? And who is Juju Smith-Shuster? Then they move to the other contenders, including the Warriors (20:00), whether their continued success despite halfhearted effort should terrify the rest of the NBA, and Sharp's disastrous trolling effort Thursday. Then they play "Overrated and Underrated?" with various contenders (31:00), including discussion of the Rockets, the Raptors, the Bucks, the Pacers, the Sixers, and the field in the Western Conference. At the end (50:00): the progress of Julius Randle, the LeBron All-NBA dilemma, choosing the best version of Shaq, fusing two rosters to beat Golden State, dreaming (or not) about the Wolves, LeBron James Jr., George Karl, and 78 reasons to love the NBA.
