Chris Yeh returns and we discuss:
Behind the scenes on how podcasts are made.
How Lin-Manual Miranda did a "Blitzscale" move with his hit musical Hamilton.
How Kawhi's "Uncle Dennis" is an example of a mainstream narrative clashing with the actual story.
We use that to springboard into how the Lakers narratives are wrong. We also discuss what the heck has happened in LA the last two years and the state of the Lakers going forward.
We discuss a little bit about Kobe's legacy and if Paul Pierce was a better franchise player.

<ore about the "right" way to do analytics, and compare last week's guest Greg Steele's work with bad metrics.
We also bring up the infamous Klay Thompson and if he's over or undervalued (spoiler, somewhere in the middle)
We discuss the 538 analytics of the 2016 presidential primary and also the presidency and kind of tie it to problems in NBA analytics. Also, if you were hoping for a political history lesson, this segment is for you!
We talk the Lakers and the Spurs and piece Dre wrote about their advantages and disadvantages.
We shout out Marcus Morris and Kawhi and some of the silly drama they've had this offseason.
