Two-part episode this time. In the first section, I chat with Reags over at Barstool about the committee releasing its top-16 teams for the NCAA Tournament so far (2:00-29:30), Gonzaga and Saint Mary's (29:30-40:30), and then finally the New York Knicks dumpster fire (46:45).
Then, for the rest of the episode, I chat with Adam Mares from over at Denver Stiffs, Locked On Nuggets, and Vice Sports about the Jusuf Nurkic-Mason Plumlee trade that was agreed to on Sunday. First, we chat about why he believes this deal makes sense for the Nuggets despite my skepticism. Then, we chat about how the Portland side, and try to understand why they would trade away the third-best player on a playoff contender for future value. Overall, a fun conversation about trying to build a team, and what matters within these discussions.
