Eye on Basketball Podcast: Burying the hatchet
Zach Harper and Ethan Sherwood Strauss discuss LeBron James' performance against the Thunder, the Warriors-Rockets game, and the trade deadline.
Ethan Sherwood Strauss joins me on this Friday episode to talk about an eventful Thursday in the NBA. LeBron James seemed to decide to re-establish his dominance in the game against Kevin Durant last night by reminding us he can be just as legendary. He even managed to finish an incredible play over Serge Ibaka after possibly having his nose broken before he went up for the shot. Was there reason to doubt just how much pain James was in before we saw the blood? Did Russell Westbrook really hurt the Oklahoma City Thunder? Should you play Kendrick Perkins against the Miami Heat?
Then we've got the Golden State Warriors' win over the Houston Rockets, which Ethan was there to watch. Why did the Warriors rely so much on David Lee against James Harden in the post? Were they playing into the hands of Kevin McHale? How incredible was that Jermaine O'Neal block on Chandler Parsons? Are the Warriors using Draymond Green properly? Is Dwight Howard someone that demands Andrew Bogut's presence?
We discuss all of this, plus Winter Olympics, the trade deadline death, and hatchets.
