Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip traveled to New York and Columbia. First they spoke to John Jastremski, WFAN New York, about Carmelo Anthony and where he will end up. Jastremski said he thinks where Melo lands will be largely about money. He thinks it’s a pipe dream for both LeBron James and Melo to end up in Houston. He also doesn’t think LeBron James will leave the Heat. Next they traveled to Columbia to talk to Brandon Kiley, ESPN Columbia, about Dorial Green-Beckham going to OU. Kiley said he doesn’t think there’s much chance Green-Beckham actually plays for Oklahoma at all.

He talked about some of the possible moves that coach Phil Jackson is looking to make.
Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show traveled to New York & Miami in an NBA edition of the Road Trip. First they went to New York to talk to Marc Malusis, WFAN, about the possibility of Carmelo Anthony leaving the Knicks. Next they flew over to Miami to talk to Brian Rowitz, 106.3, about LeBron James and other players’ futures with the Heat. He thinks that due to team loyalty, several of the players may stick around when many would move on to other teams. Rowitz discussed the importance of having a group of three big players on a team.
