Logan is joined by Michael Pope to discuss the Warriors getting back on track without Durant, the dichotomy between the Mark Jackson and Steve Kerr philosophies, Devin Bookers 70 point game in the Twitter era, and finally, how to define the MVP award.
Logan is joined by Kurt Tademy to discuss the Warriors getting hot of late without Durant to lean on, what their formula for success has been, how you define ‘point guard’ in today’s era, and the older generations not respecting Curry’s game. The duo tackles other hot NBA topics including star players resting while healthy, the biggest threat to the Warriors in the West, LeBron’s pettiness, and brawls in todays game. The pod closes with Kurts thoughts on the Ball family and whether LaVar is delusional, or just a great hype man.
