With just four NBA teams remaining, many teams begin rethinking every expectation they had for this season and that they have for the future. Is it really in our best interest to contend now or is it better to take a step back and wait for LeBron James to wilt away? That’s what the Washington Wizards battle as they look at their team following a seven-game series loss to the Boston Celtics. How much room is there to grow with this group? Is Otto Porter worth a max or near-max deal? These are all questions that Austin and Dante tackle on this week’s podcast.
Other topics include:
- Is it possible to see a better version of this Houston Rockets team? Can James Harden get any better?
- NBA Lottery takeaways and winners/losers
- Considering other lottery ideas to protect against tanking
- Breaking down Boston-Cleveland and how Boston might have a chance
- Is Golden State-San Antonio over after Kawhi Leonard‘s controversial injury?
