Eye on Basketball Podcast: Bogut's rib and imaginary ballots

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Ethan Sherwood Strauss joins me on the podcast today to discuss the current state of the Golden State Warriors after news of Andrew Bogut's broken rib possibly keeping him out of the playoffs. How should the Warriors adjust what they do? Would you go four-out and David Lee or four-out and Jermaine O'Neal as the alternative lineup? Is Draymond Green the key to this team being successful? How likely are they to win the first round and will it cost Mark Jackson his job as their coach?

Then we get into Ethan's imaginary award ballot. How do you determine Joakim Noah's value and whether or not to put him on All-NBA First Team? Where do you put Kevin Love despite his team's lack of consistent success? Does Paul George deserve higher placement than Love? Should James Harden be considered over Stephen Curry or Chris Paul? How do you fill in the All-NBA Third Team center position? And what does Blake Griffin deserve in terms of recognition?

We discuss all of this, plus Las Vegas sadness, interviewing for a coaching job, and much more.
