Eye on Basketball Podcast: New York turmoil, Blazers surging
Zach Harper and Matt Moore go over the drama with the New York Knicks, the Cleveland Cavaliers tumultuous situation, and how good the Portland Trail Blazers are.
Another weekend in the NBA has passed and that means we have even more drama with the New York Knicks this season. Matt Moore joins me to take a look at what's troubling the Knicks and the team meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Where are these Knicks trade rumors coming from? Is trading Iman Shumpert going to solve it? Is more Kenyon Martin the correct call? For the Cavs, did the team meeting get physical after a blowout loss to the Wolves? What has mysteriously happened to Dion Waiters?
There are some teams with alarms going off in their front offices right now but the Portland Trail Blazers are not one of them. This team is surging right now and we shouldn't just chalk it up to the easy schedule. They're good. Their 3-point shooting is unreal but it could be sustainable because of how they're creating their looks. What do we think about them? How good have Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge been?
We discuss all of this, plus weird trade rumors, the West forwards, and preview tonight's games.
