Eye on Basketball Podcast: Amnesty THAT
Zach Harper and Matt Moore talk about the Kobe-Cuban amnesty tweets, review the weekend, and preview Monday night's games.
It's a new week, and Matt Moore joins me to talk about the intricacies of the amnesty provision in the collective bargaining agreement. Well, we don't talk about the intricacies so much as we do talk about Mark Cuban's comments on the Los Angeles Lakers hypothetically amnestying Kobe Bryant -- and Bryant responding with a monster game against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. This was followed by Kobe tweeting "Amnesty THAT" out to the world. Was this the best social media moment in NBA history?
We also review a lot of the weekend's games. How do the Houston Rockets look since trading away their power forwards? How do Ricky Rubio and Derrick Williams look as of late for the Minnesota Timberwolves? How much did the Oklahoma City Thunder dominate the Chicago Bulls on Sunday? And are the Memphis Grizzlies still good after trading away Rudy Gay?
We discuss all of that, plus we preview Monday night's games.
