LeBron James and Kevin Durant are now the best in the game since Kobe Bryant’s career is winding down. Who’s next on that list in our NBA 2nd Half Preview – Steph Curry, Kevin Love, Paul George? The answer on those three, is no – at this point. Of the three, Curry and George seem to have the best chance as Kevin Love doesn’t seem to be interested in playing defense to the level of a Finals MVP does. Finally we’ll round out the basketball talk with whether the NBA should look into contraction or expand to cities like Denver and Las Vegas, and then move Memphis and Minnesota to the Eastern Conference.
NBA 2nd Half Preview Predictions:
- Rick Adelman will retire and Flip Saunders will blow up the Timerbwolves
- No chance of the Atlanta Hawks surprising anyone in the playoffs
- Will the Clippers ever make an NBA Finals with Blake Griffin? No.
- Listen to the show to find out the rest.
