Verno and KOC react to the thrilling game between the Bucks and Spurs that saw Victor Wembanyama go toe-to-toe with Giannis (01:08). They next discuss last week’s trade between the Knicks and Raptors that saw OG Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa, and Malachi Flynn get shipped to New York for RJ Barrett, Immanuel Quickley, and a second-round pick (19:21). With the championship window wide open in the league, the guys discuss which teams will make the necessary moves to elevate themselves into true Finals contenders (34:31). After a disappointing loss to the Jimmy Butler–less Heat, it was reported that there is growing distrust with Lakers head coach Darvin Ham as the guys debate where the team could go if they do decide to let him go and what they need to do if they keep him (46:45).
