    How Joel Embiid’ injury impacts SGA’s MVP chances

    How Joel Embiid’ injury impacts SGA’s MVP chances

    Sixers star Joel Embiid’s injury means he won’t be for postseason honors, including MVP. That offers a huge boost to OKC’s own MVP candidate: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. On this week’s Big Friendly Sports, I talk to Brett Dawson about the new 65-game minimum rule, why it exists, and why much of the hand-wringing is overblown.

    What happened to the Blazers after Dame broke up the Thunder? | Big Friendly Sports with Jon Hamm

    With the Portland Trailblazers back in town for the third of four matchups this season, Big Friendly Sports welcomes Sean Highkin from the Rose Garden Report. Four years after Damian Lillard waved goodbye to the Russell Westbrook and Paul George era of Thunder basketball, what caused Lillard to wave goodbye to the Blazers? Where does Portland go next, and what can they learn from OKC’s rebuild?

    What the Thunder realistically should look for in a trade | Big Friendly Sports with Jon Hamm

    What the Thunder realistically should look for in a trade | Big Friendly Sports with Jon Hamm

    Trades are fun to talk about and think about. But in reality, teams don’t make trades just for fun. What issues do the Thunder have that can only be addressed via a trade? And who could some of the trade targets be? We discuss that and more with Andrew Schlecht from Down to Dunk and The Athletic.
    Show highlights:
    (9:44) Why Brooklyn Nets small forward Cameron Johnson  is “the pie in the sky player.” 
    (18:24) Why the Jazz may have played Kelly Olynk out of trade consideration.
    (19:04) Why Gordon Hayward, even with his age and health, is a good low-risk target for OKC. Plus what it would cost the Thunder. “What about paying $6 million for the chance to have Gordon Hayward on our team for the rest of the year?”

    Breaking down the Western Conference contenders

    The Oklahoma City Thunder are very good and are catching a lot of national attention. But other teams in the Western Conference loom as threats, and all offer different challenges to the Thunder. Sellout Crowd’s Michael Martin joins me to analyze the Western Conference contenders and how the Thunder match up — or fail to match up — against each of them.

    Gotta hear both sides: Talking through a few hypothetical Thunder trades

    Gotta hear both sides: Talking through a few hypothetical Thunder trades

    The Thunder’s hot start to the season has some people thinking about trade upgrades. For today’s show, Michael Martin brings a few proposed trades to the table for discussion. But if a trade seems to make sense for OKC, would it also make sense for the other team? And do any of these trades really move the Thunder forward? We discuss that and more on the latest episode of Big Friendly Sports with Jon Hamm.

    Final thoughts before voters decide whether to approve a new arena in Oklahoma City

    Final thoughts before voters decide whether to approve a new arena in Oklahoma City

    Before the Sooners kicked off the 2023 season, I was ready to fast forward to the Jackson Arnold era. Here’s why I thought that, and why I’m glad it didn’t happen in hindsight. Also, there are some misconceptions surrounding the proposed new arena that deserve clarification prior to Tuesday’s vote.
