Will gives his take on the second round. He made some calls that were prescient and at least one that was stupidly wrong. To keep it real. But rather than gloat about correctly predicting both serieses out West and the Miami series (and he ultimately went 4 for 4 with first round predictions, he instead chose to gloat about correctly predicting that Crystal Dangerfield will be the ROY (he may be wrong but he is prematurely gloating). Will also gives his take on Lakers / Clippers (also possibly premature).

Kiah and Will are joined by LA Sparks PG Chelsea Gray! She talks about her zero tolerance policy for Tar Heel blue, her friendship with Kobe Bryant, appearing on The Detail, coping with injury, her love of Beyonce, and even more than just that. Chelsea is one of the best five players in the WNBA, but does she care more about how she ranks compared to her contemporaries, or how she ranks on the all time point guard list? She answers that question among others.

We actually recorded this podcast a few days before Kobe died since he said those nice things about the 3 WNBA stars. We talked about the validity of his statements, and how we were both jealous of the tutelage that his daughters received from him. We talked about how Gigi was going to inevitably play for UConn and how a lot of young women in the NCAA are mimicking James Harden's game (and to some extent Kobe's) and how Kiah feels about that. We also talk a little about the new CBA for the WNBA. It's crazy that we recorded this episode before everything happened. I recorded the first eight minutes yesterday though. I hope you like the podcast.

Will and Max break down the east. Will compares three young guards to each other. Max predicts the Eastern standings. Will hates on people that are treating Marquelle Fultz's game against the Lakers as though it means something. Will continues to doubt on the Celtics but gives props to basically everyone else in the East, especially one team. That team is the Miami Heat. Here's the thing: Jimmy Butler thinks that the best player in the NBA is Jimmy Butler. What if he's right?

Kiah and Will talk about which playoff teams can truly contend. They talk about the Jazz's winning streak and the Nuggets recent impressive showings. Out East it's a little less clear who's for real. Also Andre Drummond is on the trade block, Kiah talks about where he would fit in. Lastly but certainly not leastly (not a word) Kiah predicts how much she is going to enjoy Bad Boys 3, and the new albums from Drake and Rihanna (a lot).
