Coaches in trouble, Nets-Bucks thoughts, and the wide-open West
On this week's episode, we react to recent reports that Nate Bjorkgren, Terry Stotts, and Mike Budenholzer are on the hot seat. We try to parse what's gone wrong in Indiana, how much of Portland's stagnancy can be blamed on Stotts, and what a successful playoff run for Milwaukee would look like. Then, we take stock of the Bucks-Nets mini-series, and wonder how much it can tell us about a likely playoff matchup. And finally, with the Lakers reeling, we reassess the pecking order atop the wide-open Western Conference.
