Eye on Basketball Podcast: NBA star protocol

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Matt Moore joins me to talk about the big night of action that we had Wednesday. With 13 games on the schedule, there was a lot to keep track of, which can be pretty tricky. However, we're more concerned with how the NBA is when there is just a singular event, like All-Star Weekend or the NBA Finals. Matt has an idea for revamping the NBA Finals to make it more like the Super Bowl, and I hit him with my idea to make All-Star Weekend more of an event than it is, in particular with the halftime show on Sunday.

We also get into a big conversation about NBA superstar protocol and whether someone like Carmelo Anthony acted in a proper way getting away from the Denver Nuggets. Did he do right by the team by saying that he wanted out or should he have played out his contract like he signed there to do? When is it acceptable to want out? How do you go about doing this?

We talk about all of that, plus review the Lakers' injury situation and preview Thursday night's games.
