On this week’s episode Chris Horwedel and Anshu Khanna talk about:
1:23– Los Angeles Lakers – Sitting at 1st place in the West, the Lakers are clearly the best team in the league, right? 10:17– Golden State Warriors – Is this the clearest-cut case of tanking we’ve seen since the 76ers? 13:25– Houston Rockets – James Harden is averaging 39.2 points per game, can he average 40? Is he a better natural scorer than Michael Jordan? 15:03– New Orleans Pelicans – Averaging 25.9, 7.3 and 3.9, has Brandon Ingram has ascended into star territory this season? 17:35– Denver Nuggets – Mired in 3rd place, do the Nuggets need to get aggressive and make a move for a star to win the West? 19:30– San Antonio Spurs – At 5-9 through 14 games, is this Pop’s last season and will they look to move Demar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge? 21:48– LA Clippers – Between rest and load management, will Paul George and Kawhi Leonard play more than 40 games together this season? Impact? 23:39– Portland Trail Blazers – Struggling to start the year — and now signing Carmelo — is this the year the Blazers break up their backcourt? (Trade CJ McCollum) 25:16– Dallas Mavericks – Luka Doncic continues to set seemingly unbreakable records, is Luka a top 3 player in the NBA at just 20 years old? 27:51– Oklahoma City Thunder – The Thunder find themselves in the horrible position of being bad, but not terrible, will they ensure they change that by the deadline? 28:28– Utah Jazz – In order to take the next step in the West, the Jazz need to be aggressive and upgrade from Mike Conley at PG 28:54– Memphis Grizzlies – While Ja Morant has been sensational, the Grizzlies should be worried about the lack of growth from Jaren Jackson Jr. 29:45– Phoenix Suns – Averaging 14.5 points and 5.6 boards in just 24 mins, Aron Baynes deserves to be in the MIP discussion 31:00– Sacramento Kings – Given the Buddy Hield extension and his desire to start, the Kings will need to move Bogdan Bogdanovic at the deadline 32:09– Minnesota Timberwolves – Overshadowed by Karl-Anthony Towns‘ incredible season, Andrew Wiggins has elevated his game significantly. Is this the real Wiggins or a mirage?
