A great can’t miss interview with one of the exciting college players in the game.
  • We also weigh in on the love-hate relationship with LeBron James and Kevin Love. Will this cause a problem moving forward during the playoffs? Does it even matter when the overall goal is to get to a NBA Finals?
  • Is resting players a great strategy for head coaches planning for the playoffs or in the long term will it hurt the overall product of what the NBA endorses to the fans? As teams clinch their playoff spots these last few weeks might be see many stars rested as the fan’s expense.
