LP has the Warriors in 3, Canada has the Raptors in 6, Money has the Warriors in 7, FP is on the Warriors in 4, Stevie doesn’t care, and Joe hasn’t decided yet! The NBA Finals tip on Thursday night and Canada, Money, and Joe are on the podcast talking about matchups, betting lines, over/under, MVP candidates, and of course making predictions. Canada is convinced the Raptors will be fresh and the Warriors will be rusty after a week off, Money doesn’t care and is adamant that with or without KD the Warriors will win, and Joe just wants everyone to bet the under on game 1 which is set way to high! The entire country is on the Raptors + all of North Mexico (aka Canada)… its the Finals and it starts Thursday!
Pete, Canada, and Joe discuss the greatest shot in Canadian basketball history, after listening to it in several languages, then put a bow on the 76ers season, then turn their attention to the Eastern and Western Conference Finals. First, in the east, can anyone stop the Bucks and their balanced rotation, and similarly in the west, are the Blazers deep enough to knock off the Warriors. The trio also discuss the Durant to Knicks rumor and speculate on the which team getting Zion would be the best for the NBA…. also CP3 is over-rated, Harden isn’t as good as his stats, and the Nets may be the sleeper team to land some big-name free agents this summer.
Finally, we get the episode we deserve the fifth time out in season eight and Joe and Stevie are ready to discuss. We get the full heel-turn of Dani, the full wake-up call for Jon, and the grand finale of Hound v Mountain! The star of this episode was Tyrion. He was doing what he does best, planning, executing, and calculating what needs to be done next. Yes there was still some sloppy writing, and plot-holes that don’t make any sense, but with the armor finally off, we said goodbye to more than a few characters that we have gotten to know very well over the years.
LP and Joe are back to breakdown the Redskins 2019 draft class in detail and shed some light on what caused the stars to align for Bruce Allen to have the best day of his tenure as a member of the ‘Skins front office! The boys also discuss what went wrong in NY and why Rosen going to the Dolphins was a sneaky good move by the ‘fins and a terrible move by the forever-rebuilding Cardinals. LP has the Redskins at 10-6 after breaking down the schedule while Joe has them at 9-7 but making the playoffs because of scheduling which affords them six straight NFC contests to end the season! Elsewhere… LP can’t talk GoT but wanted to chat about the NBA while Joe shared some thoughts on the EPL season.
