Big Topic #1: Why the Naismith Hall of Fame is a sham, especially compared to Cooperstown.
Big Topic #2: Anthony Davis trade rumors. We go meta on this one talking about the news cycle. This is right before we engage in the same rumor mill discussion :)

We spend the first 20-25 minutes of the show talking the NFL playoffs and wrestling. This happens right after I say we're a Rockets podcast.
We talk the Houston Rockets. We like them trading Melo and signing Faried. That said, this team is still playing from behind.
We talk Scottie Pippen and his talk about how he'd guard James Harden. We use this as an excuse to talk a geeky tangent about time travel and greatest of all teams.

DeAndre Jordan's free throw shooting.
Are the Warriors better than the Nuggets out west?
Houston's woes now that Clint Capela is out for two months and Eric Gordon is on his way back.
Do Kawhi Leonard and Donovan Mitchell deserve player of the week?
Should the Bulls buyout Robin Lopez?
We talk a horrible study that has inexplicably become a common "advanced analytics" staple. As Brian succinctly puts it, it's essentially a "fruit of a poison tree" scenario.
We talk issues with in-season Wins Produced and how we'll be examining things to make sure everything is running alright.
Finally, we talk Trump serving Clemson fast food.

We talk how the NBA is normalizing using SRS.
We talk a lot of Houston, including Austin Rivers, Michael Carter-Williams, and James Harden.
We also talk about Chandler Parson and Jimmy Butler and why, no matter how frustrating they are, we don't side against the players.
We have a bunch of other tangents too as this week is a tune up show after two weeks off. Tune in!
