On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by sharing his thoughts on Steph Curry and the absence of 'clutch moments' during his postseason career. Curry is a 2-time NBA MVP, a 3-time NBA champion and easily the greatest shooter in NBA history, and yet this narrative continues to haunt him. However, a thorough analysis of Curry's playoff career shows that the biggest reason why he's never hit a clutch shot in the playoffs is because his teams are usually well-ahead in the closing moments; How is Steph supposed to have a 'signature moment' if his teams are blowing everyone else out? Curry is clearly a victim of his own success. Later, Jason elaborates on his viral tweet from Monday night in which he explained how an NBA Finals series victory by the Boston Celtics would cement Jayson Tatum as having arguably the greatest postseason run of all-time. If the Celtics win the title, Tatum will have defeated Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jimmy Butler en route to the championship. Going through the annals of NBA history, and there's probably only a handful of guys (Curry, Michael Jordan, Dirk Nowitzki) who can argue that they had a tougher path. Finally, Jason closes the show with a few quick thoughts on Aaron Donald's massive contract extension with the Los Angeles Rams.
