Every so often, The Vertical’s (soon ESPN’s) Adrian Wojnarowski looks to break NBA Twitter. For however many years now, he has provided NBA news quicker than most. Today, he continued that trend. He provided us all of the details on the Chris Paul trade. Austin and Dante start today’s podcast with a discussion on the trade as they are joined by LWOPB’s Matthew Cardenas.
After talking about how Paul and James Harden will fit together in Mike D’Antoni‘s system, they hop over to the Eastern half of the United States. The New York Knicks were once again in the news. Following Phil Jackson‘s departure, the trio delve into the future in The Big Apple and which point guards could join Kristaps Porzingis. Also included is Matthew ranting about Harden not winning the MVP and getting that off his chest. Finally, Dante recaps his trip to weekend #1 of BIG3 basketball in Brooklyn.
