Eye on Basketball Podcast: Farewell, Chris Grant
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the firing of Chris Grant in Cleveland, the slide of the Golden State Warriors, and preview tonight's games.
Matt Moore joins me today to discuss the firing of Chris Grant as general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers. What went so wrong with Grant's term as the GM? Was he David Kahn-esque in the way he would put himself in a good position to make progress but then screw up that opportunity? Is it now time to set Kyrie Irving straight? What do you do with that roster and the organization as a whole? Will this summer change things around for Irving?
Then we start talking about the recent slide of the Golden State Warriors. They've struggled at home, which actually hasn't been much of an advantage for them this season. Is everything going to be alright for them? Is Andre Iguodala struggling because of his play or because of his previous hamstring injury? Will Klay Thompson start hitting shots again? How do they go with the Andrew Bogut and four perimeter players lineup with this roster?
We discuss all of this, plus the slam dunk contest, Damian Lillard's busy All-Star weekend, and preview tonight's games.
