Sometimes the best way to bring in the new year is with a dope podcast and awesome music by the great urban philosopher that is B.G., formerly of Cash Money Records.
On the first TVP episode of 2015, Bonta and Ed welcome Ben Golliver, NBA writer extraordinaire for Sports Illustrated, onto the show to talk what exactly makes the Portland Trail Blazers tick. From the ascension of Damian Lillard and his candidacy as a MVP candidate, to Ed’s conversion from irrational hate to admiration for LaMarcus Aldridge, to questioning whether the Blazers have enough in the chamber to make a real run in the 2015 NBA Playoffs. Also in the conversation, we touch on Golden State’s place as the top team in basketball, and worry Bonta to death by asking if Draymond Green has a future in the Bay Area past this season.
