Ryen opens up the pod with the discussion around Joel Embiid and the 65-game threshold that players must meet to receive awards. Did Joel feel forced to play against the Warriors on Tuesday night, when he suffered another injury, after missing the Saturday prime-time game against Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets (00:37)? Former NBA player Chandler Parsons joined Ryen to discuss being in the media now as a former player, where the Clippers stand in the West, and how good Jalen Brunson has been for the Knicks (16:39). Plus, Life Advice! One guy went too hard at a company ice skating outing (45:56).
