Kerr's Upset, Giannis MVP?, Harden Sleeper?, Trade Deadline & Best Team in the NBA

In this week’s Point of Contention, Ethan Strauss and Marcus Thompson debate. Hosted by Zach Harper. 

Take 1: Last week Steph was getting upset, this week it’s Steve Kerr! Kerr lashed out at Warriors analyst Drew Shilling for allegedly misquoting Kerr after he appeared on a Ringer podcast in which he said he enjoyed last year more than the Final year of the dynasty which obviously included Kevin Durant.

Take 2: Just one week ago we were talking about the volatile MVP odds and yet again things have changed as two time reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo moved into 4th place and is edging closer due to injuries to LeBron and Joel. 

Take 3: In yet another plot twist to the MVP race, James Harden is now showing the 5th best odds at +1000. And to boost his campaign, Charles Barkley appeared on ESPN Radio in which he said that James Harden may be the best player in the world today!

Take 4: Guys it’s Trade Deadline Day and players from across the league will be on the move to new destinations. Last week, we talked about which players we thought could be on the move and since then things have changed a bit.

Take 5: It’s late March and the Suns are 29-13, second in the Western Conference. That’s unbelievable. But even more unreal, is that the Lakers keep slipping, now down to 28-16 and 4th in the Western Conference.
