A LOT to Unpack
Let’s get things started with Draymond Green who has been a cornerstone of the Warriors championship dynasty. He’s a player who was drafted in the second round and will end up in the Hall of Fame which is way more rare than you might think. He’s also one of the biggest assholes in the NBA and his peers are growing tired of his antics.
In case you missed recent NBA news, Green was recently suspended for putting Rudy Gobert in an MMA-style chokehold for really no reason. That is part of the reason he was suspended five games. The other reason is his shitty reputation. This isn’t even the first time he’s been suspended this calendar year. He was suspended for a game in the playoffs after stomping on Domantas Sabonis. When will enough be enough with Draymond and his crazy selfish attitude?
Now onto James Harden. Harden is always a trending topic for all the wrong reasons, usually nasty NBA rumors. Judging by his opening press conference, that isn’t about to change. The Clippers got off to a really slow start with Harden clearly not in game shape yet. How long will this new situation take to sort itself out?
The expectation for the Clippers is a championship. We’ve seen no evidence from Harden that he’s ready to help them achieve that goal. We discuss the Clippers’ immediate and long-term future.
And finally, Oakland which recently made MLB news. Losing a pro team is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a major city. How about 3 in 5 years? Now you’re talking about a catastrophe. That is what Oakland is dealing with as they’ve lost the Raiders, Warriors, and Athletics. All of these teams have championship history in their respective leagues. We explore what this means for Oakland and other major cities that have suffered the same fate.
