    How far will the Lakers fall in the standings, MVP watch, Space Jam 2 trailer

    How far will the Lakers fall in the standings, MVP watch, Space Jam 2 trailer

    Chris Haynes is joined by Yahoo Sports' Seerat Sohi for a discussion that travels around the world of basketball from the college, to pro, to cartoon ranks and back again.

    Chris & Seerat kick off the show discussing the weekend full of blowouts in the NBA with four games being decided by a matter of 40+ points. Compare that to the men's and women's NCAA tournaments where the two final fours each produced iconic moments.

    Later in the podcast, they take a look at the Los Angeles Lakers' falling stature in the Western Conference standings. Could they fall to the play-in tournament? With Utah, Phoenix, Denver & the Clippers all aligned for top seeds, which one would least like to see LeBron James & the Lakers in round one? (24:20)

    Finally, Chris & Seerat close out the show looking at Jrue Holiday's extension with the Milwaukee Bucks and the much-anticipated release of the trailer for Space Jam: A New Legacy.

    Is Harden a legit MVP candidate? Is Denver the best in the West?

    Is Harden a legit MVP candidate? Is Denver the best in the West?

    Chris Haynes is joined by Yahoo's Vincent Goodwill to take stock of the league one week after the trade deadline.

    With the post-buyout additions of Andre Drummond to the Los Angeles Lakers, as well as Blake Griffin & LaMarcus Aldridge to the Brooklyn Nets, does something need to change in how these past-prime stars get acquired after the trade deadline?

    Some say all the additions made to the Brooklyn Nets roster this season turned them into the NBA's villains. Chris & Vince explore that idea as well as James Harden's MVP chances as he's quickly turned into the face of the franchise due to Kevin Durant & Kyrie Irving's inconsistent playing status night-to-night.

    Later in the show, the guys break down the new-look Denver Nuggets, who play the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night. Are they the best in the Western Conference?

    Finally, Chris & Vince close out the show discussing the recent back-and-forth between Washington Wizard guard Russell Westbrook & Stephen A. Smith over Westbrook's latest triple-double.
