Chris and Kevin start off by reflecting on the legacy of the late, great Kobe Bryant a year after his death (3:00). Then they get into the pure fun of the Lakers-Cavaliers game Monday night, in which LeBron James went for 46 points in a dominant performance (12:15). In an episode all about the surprises of the season, a not-so-surprising surprise is that LeBron has not been coasting, and the Lakers look like clear favorites (14:30). But the Clippers are not too far behind, with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George playing out of their minds after faltering in the bubble (18:45). Other surprises of the season include the little separation between teams and how many squads are trying to make a playoff run (22:45), Tom Thibodeau’s defensive impact on the Knicks (29:30), Jaylen Brown’s explosion toward greatness (37:00), and the NBA’s plans for a potential All-Star Weekend in Atlanta in February (46:00). And finally, Chris and Kevin give their awards predictions a quarter of the way through the season (51:45).
