Good episode? Give it some love!
We're back after a bit of a hiatus! On today's show, friend of the pod Michael Pina (@MichaelVPina) of VICE Sports joins us to go through an exercise you see in the G-League: what if the top seeds could pick their first-round playoff opponent? Top seed in each conference gets first choice, second-place team goes next, and so forth. Mike, Ben, and Pina each make their choices if they ran the Raptors, Celtics, and Cavaliers in the East, and then the Rockets, Warriors, and Blazers in the West. Do we believe the Bucks have another playoff gear? Is Indiana just a nice regular-season story? Then, our picks get especially weird in the West, where two of us don't believe in Minnesota and one of us makes a bold pick on Portland's behalf.
