Derrick Rose's Injury
Devin already discussed the impact of losing Rose.
We're okay with the Bulls trading Deng and Boozer, we're not the only ones.
The key to the Bulls success is Jimmy Butler and Joakim Noah. As long as they keep these players, there's no need to tank.
In terms of posting, we changed up the order. We recorded the podcast before Arturo wrote his amazing Kobe piece. We then posted Arturo's piece first. Regardless, Arturo's Kobe piece sums this up perfectly. That's right, it was so nice, I said it twice!
Cap wise, the Lakers are destroyed. In fact, even the cap expert agrees!
When it comes to Kobe "cheating" via his Germany trips, Patrick says it best: "I'm a huge fan of better living through chemistry and science."
The Blazers and the Grizzlies
Arturo's power rankings show the Blazers as contenders, and the Grizzlies and Pelicans on the rise. Is this for real?
Why the heck is LaMarcus Aldridge getting any credit for this success? Batum and Matthews are the workhorses behind this team! Check it out!
Turns out the Grizzlies are doing ok, even with injuries. Mainly because they have some good backups in Kosta Koufos and Ed Davis. Arturo says they should worry about the Spurs, but then again, who shouldn't?
