Today on BRING IT IN Henry Abbott and David Thorpe spoke with Tom Haberstroh, National NBA Insider, host of the Habershow podcast, co-host of Pack Your Knives and Dad Pod podcasts, and co-founder of @countthedings. They talked about Mike Conley, Jalen Suggs, why speed is so incredibly important in basketball, how to assess the Lakers’ championships, the idea of Steph and LeBron playing together, and Nikola Jokic’s iron grasp on this year’s MVP award.
I looked through April for the nuggets and they could well run the table.. and still potentially be in second (or third if the Suns keep it going) on May 1. Love what you said about Utah and Denver, David! What an odd year, as open as any I can recall. Love the Joker MVP talk even more, he is such a delight to watch.
How about a possibility of LAC-v-LAL in the first round as 4/5 seeds and Utah only has to face one of the two LA teams? Utah's path in that case is as interesting as that first round matchup. As is a second round PHX-v-DEN (assuming DEN wins the no-D first round matchup with Portland).
The West could break so interesting for matchups.
