HTTD’s Rajan Nanavati talks to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan about the Kirk Cousins’ contract situation and how that will play out this spring and summer, and then is joined by John to discuss the Wizards failed players-only meeting.
Rajan and John rank the top 25 players for the 2017-2018 NBA season to date, with the premise of: if you were playing a basketball game tonight, with everything on the line, who is among the top of the list of players that you’d want on your team?
Rajan, John, and Neel convened to discuss John Wall’s contract extension with the Washington Wizards, and Kyrie Irving’s trade demands to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
So, can we finally put an end to all the “the disgruntled John Wall has his eyes set on leaving the Washington Wizards when his contract expires” talk?
The basketball-obsessed trio of Rajan, Neel, and John reconvene to break down the ridiculous 2017 NBA Offseason.
Boston Celtics, Carmelo Anthony, Demarcus Cousins, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, John Wall, Minnesota Timberwolves, Oklahoma City Thunder, Otto Porter, Paul George, Philadelphia 76ers, Russell Westbrook, Washington Wizards
Just ask yourself: how many times does a big-named, high-priced player acquisition arrive in Washington, D.C., and actually live up to the billing?
