PBT Podcast: Cavaliers trades, Hawks surge, West playoff picture and race for MVP

6 Comments

In this edition of the podcast Kurt Helin and I discuss the trades the Cavaliers made this week, and whether or not they address the issues in Cleveland, both now and for the remainder of the season.

We then take a look at the Atlanta Hawks, who have won six straight and just happen to be sitting at the top of the Eastern Conference standings.

From there we move out West, and break down the playoff picture in an incredibly stacked Conference. Could the Spurs actually miss the playoffs? They’re essentially tied for eighth right now with the Suns, with Oklahoma City lurking just four games back.

Finally, we take a look at the race for MVP. It’s tough to argue with Stephen Curry, but I have someone ahead of him in my rankings to this point of the season.
