Straight Fire w/ Jason McIntyre - LIVE from Vacation: Game 7 Reaction, NBA Finals Preview & a Hypothetical Damian Lillard Trade
Manage episode 330154599 series 2862024
On today's episode, Jason recaps a thrilling Eastern Conference Finals Game 7 between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat. Our fearless leader is so committed to his craft that he interrupted his family vacation to record a podcast from his bathroom using a pair of AirPods. Seriously. As for the game itself, Jayson Tatum and the Celtics finally broke through and will now face Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. While both Jason and Producer Rob G are expecting a long and entertaining series, neither guy is willing to to admit that these are easily the two best teams in the NBA as both the Celtics and the Warriors have benefited from opposing injuries on their way through the postseason. That's not a knock on either team; it's just the truth. As far as the Heat are concerned, while some in the basketball community are questioning Jimmy Butler's decision to shoot a potential game-winning three pointer in the final seconds rather than go for the tie, the truth of the matter is that Miami is so limited offensively that Butler's transition three was still probably the best option they had. The Heat definitely need to upgrade beyond Butler and Bad Adebayo this offseason. Finally, the guys close the show by sharing their thoughts on a controversial Damian Lillard-to-the-Los Angeles Lakers trade that Jason floated on Friday's edition The Herd. Is the idea as crazy as it sounds? You be the judge!
