No Look Pass Podcast: (Episode 66) The Future of LA and Canadian Basketball/NBA Second Round

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Many believe that the worst position as a franchise in the NBA is to be a fringe contender. You're not good enough to realistically challenge for a championship, but never have a shot at getting lottery talent from skating into the playoffs every year just to leave your fanbase disappointed. The Toronto Raptors in the East, and the LA Clippers in the West, are both arguably in this position. However, both franchises have accomplished more in the last few years than in their entire history. So the question is... is it time for each team to blow it up?

Also, the NBA second round, despite their blowouts, still has some intriguing matchups. Who will win the battle of Texas? And is the funeral series a budding rivalry?

No Look Pass Podcast: (Episode 65) Can the Wizards win the East?

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

NLP

The story of the NBA Playoffs first round is most commonly breakout performances by the could-be future of the league, and the 2017 first round has certainly not lacked such standouts. John Wall has led the Wizards, the Greek Freak has led the Bucks, and we haven't even discussed the two-man MVP race going head-to-head out West in Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Who has been the most impressive thus far in the first round?

There has also been a very surprising development out in the East as the first seed Celtic find themselves trailing to the largely disappointing Chicago Bulls. Can the Bulls complete the upset, and what does that mean for the East as a whole?

No Look Pass Podcast: (Episode 64) Could Steph Curry win MVP?/Playoff Preview

You read the title, and think we are crazy, don't you? Well, it's a bit of click-bait (everyone else is doing it, blame peer pressure!) We discuss the three man race for MVP between Russell Westbrook, James Harden, and (maybe?) Kawhi Leonard. Then, we decide how 2015-2016 Steph Curry would fare in this year's MVP conversation.

From there, it's straight to the playoffs! Are there upsets on the agenda? Which series are we most excited for? Who will be the MVP of the first round? And of course, predictions!
