When we grade "bad trades" should we grade based on the disparity between talent or on how bad the contract the team gets back.
We talk the Warriors and if they can redeem themselves from this bad season. Thanks reboundandthrees for the question!
We also deep dive the 76ers and how royally they wasted "The Process."
We talk about how the Dunk contest is outdated and you either keep it around for tradition or scrap it. There is no "fixing it."
We didn't do show notes, but we did a podcast on Kobe Bryant right after his death. If you missed it, check out our iTunes/YouTube channels, or here's the link.
We talk about the Elam ending in the All-Star game. And no, this isn't the great Broncos Kicker's idea.
We congratulate Kawhi on winning All-Star MVP and note how much better it is that he's in LA than San Antonio. In San Antonio, he didn't make the All-Star game right after winning Finals MVP and DPOY.
We talk about Kyrie Irving's season-ending injury and Joseph Gill's point about how maybe the NBA needs to take over the development of future stars instead of trusting institutions like the AAU and NCAA.
The Rockets sign Jeff Green and we kind of wonder if the "Analytics Revolution" is a myth.
Our take on TV ratings? It's a complicated system and no one knows anything for sure.
