Austin and Pausha kick the week off by comparing Shohei Ohtani’s $700 million deal to NBA contracts (1:38). Then, they talk through why the Lakers winning the in-season tournament upped the “cool” value, and why it overall was a huge win for the Association (19:40). Jumping off the Lakers’ IST win, they discuss the duos that rank higher than LeBron and AD, and why King James may be the greatest athlete to ever play sports (43:16). Then, they wrap things up with arguments for a 70-game regular season, and why the Warriors and Jordan Poole shouldn’t have parted ways (50:55).
