In Ep. 6, Alex and Josh are still trying to recover from Thanksgiving and Black Friday. They discuss the NBA being in the weird part of the season between the two big holidays and what that means for NBA teams until the new year. Do teams rest their players more at this time of the year?
They talk about Russell Westbrook averaging a triple-double going into the month of December and what he means to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Can he sustain this kind of a run for an entire season?
Finally, they try to figure out just how many teams in the league can legitimately contend for a title this year. Which teams made the cut and who is on the outside looking in?
