The Atlantic Files #231: Quin Snyder left, will Donovan Mitchell?

This week on The Atlantic Files:

On this week’s episode of the Atlantic Files Podcast, Quin Snyder resigned from the Utah Jazz, will Donovan Mitchell force his way out as well, the NBA Finals continue as the series is tied 1-1, Tyler Herro’s case to be a starter, Kyrie Irving’s future in Brooklyn, and more!

The biggest news story other than the NBA Finals happening is the fact that Quin Snyder has stepped down from being the head coach of the Utah Jazz. This is during a time when the Jazz are in a state of flux. Rumors of Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell not being able to play together have been swirling for a while. Now, does this coaching change mean Mitchell could just force his way out?

Speaking of the NBA Finals, at the time of this recording the series was tied 1-1. We revisited some of our predictions about the Finals and checked if anything has changed since then. Also, we took a deep dive into the stats of the Finals so far and what’s happening for each team.

A little while ago, Tyler Herro said he wants to start for the Miami Heat now that he has accomplished Sixth Man of the Year. Pat Riley made a statement telling him to go into training camp and earn it. All in all, it was a fair statement from Riley, but he probably should be calling out some other players rather than only Herro.

Rumors and Kyrie Irving just seem to go hand-in-hand these days. There have been rumors now that he might sign with the Philadelphia 76ers and then also rumors that he’ll sign an extension with the Brooklyn Nets. Do the Nets really want to pay him all the money he’s going to ask for though?

Finally, the NBA talked about shortening the season and maybe even adding a mid-season tournament. This seems a little ridiculous that we’re talking about lessening the workload for professional athletes especially when the roughest sport of all, football, extended its season by another week. We understand money is the driving factor, but there has to be a lot of other options than just shortening the season.

Being from the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was hard not to become a Sixers fan during Allen Iverson's prime. Other than just the Sixers, I enjoy watching all forms and levels of basketball, especially the WNBA. Outside of basketball, I've been playing and coaching volleyball for most of my life. Also, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I became a Software Developer by day, while writing and hosting podcasts by night.
