Eye on Basketball Podcast: All-Stars and all your questions
Zach Harper takes your Twitter questions to discuss the All-Star reserves, how to make sense of the Cavaliers and Nuggets, and how to re-cast great movies.
Going with a solo podcast edition for Tuesday, which means I'm answering your Twitter questions. Before that, we didn't get a chance to discuss the All-Star reserve selections from Thursday so I go over the rosters and those left off. Are there actually any snubs in the Western Conference if there were 16 or 17 legitimate candidates for 12 spots? Does Joe Johnson really deserve all of the flack he's getting for being selected? Who will replace Kobe Bryant for the West? Does the East have enough legitimate candidates to feel like guys got screwed out of not making it? Is it better for your fringe All-Star not to make it?
Then I get into answering your questions. What is wrong with the Cleveland Cavaliers and how can you fix them? How does one begin to understand what the Denver Nuggets are? If the Philadelphia 76ers end up with the third and 10th picks in the draft, which players should they target? Can the Minnesota Timberwolves still make the playoffs and did they make the right move with Chase Budinger this offseason?
We discuss all of this, plus which NBA players would be in "Fast & Furious" franchise, how to re-cast "Starship Troopers", and much more.
