Eye on Basketball Podcast: Melo's freedom, LeBron's clutch
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss Carmelo Anthony wanting to be a free agent, LeBron James being clutch, and Derrick Rose being awesome again.
We're less than two weeks away from the start of the regular season and we're starting to get some real stuff to talk about. Matt Moore joins me to talk about Carmelo Anthony wanting to be a free agent. Does this matter? Is it just a business decision or have we been fooled too many times not to pay more attention to it? And with players coming out and picking Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant over LeBron James for the final shot, what exactly is the line between being clutch and not being clutch? Should you avoid clutch moments by winning big? Is there an answer outside of these three? Can you go wrong?
Derrick Rose looks fantasitc in the preseason and says he feels more explosive than before the injury. At what point do we start overreacting to this news and his preseason play? Is a No. 1 seed in the East too far? Is projecting him to be an MVP candidate too crazy? Are the Chicago Bulls ready to pace themselves and maximize their playoff abilities? Do they have too much to prove in terms of being considered a top team once again?
We discuss all of this, plus figuring out the top of the East, the bottom of the East, and whether or not you should want the arena shaped like your likeness.
