4/24/2018

A sweep! Michael and I get to break down quite possibly the most exciting results we've had since starting the Pod! We break down what went right, marvel at having three legitimate MVP players for the series (Mike and I stake out our position on them) and I trash Portland. Cuz screw those guys. We wonder at whether the Pelicans can carry this momentum into Golden State, and talk about GSW both with and without Curry as an opponent. And we make our predictions! Enjoy!

Enjoy!
