Eye on Basketball Podcast: Free agency buzz and fallout

I'm joined today by Ethan Sherwood Strauss to discuss the fallout of the free agency madness that has happened surrounding Dwight Howard signing with the Houston Rockets. Why is this the correct move for Howard to make? Is it better than staying with the Los Angeles Lakers? Is Howard on more of a contender for next season with the Rockets than he would have been with the Lakers? And what could Kobe Bryant have done to convince Howard to stay?

There's more chaos in free agency than just Howard, though. Andre Iguodala and the Golden State Warriors agreed on a deal to bring the incredible wing defender to the Bay Area. How does he fit in with Stephen Curry? Is Andrew Bogut being healthy in the playoffs the key to them contending for a title? How quickly does David Lee need to be traded, if at all? And would the price of Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes in a sign and trade have been too much to give up for Dwight Howard?

We discuss all of this, plus tanking, point guards, and Batman movies.
