Can I interest you in an extensive discussion about the NBA Finals ... along with stories about traveling during the NBA playoffs, Chet Holmgren meeting Dirk Nowitzki, Holmgren's chances of being drafted No. 1 overall by Orlando and various other newsy topics away from the Finals?
If so then you're in luck. On Tuesday, I hosted an hour-long NBA chat via Spotify Live with one of my favorite colleagues: Ben Golliver of The Washington Post. We devoted half the chat to the Finals (as well as crossing paths at the Western Conference finals) before I took questions from the audience on myriad subjects.
Among the topics discussed after breaking down the 1-1 Finals deadlock between the Celtics and Warriors entering Wednesday night's Game 3 in Boston:
🏀 The Nuggets' willingness to spend on their front office staff.
🏀 The most high-profile player likely to switch teams this offseason.
🏀 Bobby Portis' free-agent marketplace and Milwaukee's chances of retaining him.
🏀 The various interesting angles surrounding the Clippers' future.
🏀 Whether this Finals matchup really features the league's top two teams.
🏀 What the future holds for the Suns, Trail Blazers, Thunder, Mavericks, Knicks and more.
