Can Cavs Acquire Missing Pieces in Offseason to Challenge Golden State Warriors’ Dominance?Basketball expert & blogger, Brennan Schlabig, join Witz and Roz for this episode of The Sporting Edge on LibertyTalk.fm. Brennan outlines his thoughts on NBA free agency and how things are going to go down in the league next season. We’re about 10 hours into the period, so things should get exciting. The topic then turns towards the Cleveland Cavaliers with Brennan stating Paul George might be the only player to possess the skill to help the Cavs overtake the Warriors in league dominance.
Next up, the guys discuss several trades such as whether Blake Griffin could be headed to Phoenix Suns; Gordon Hayward to the Celtics? However, the question remains if the trade rumors are true or merely offseason chatter. Brennan details how Gordon Hayward would be massive in helping the Boston Celtics take their game to the next level. Hayward is a very fluid player who can stretch the floor and can also knock down key shots. Whereas Blake Griffin is kind of on the other side of the spectrum, as we saw with his time in Lob City.
As the topic turns to baseball in the third segment, The Rockies have completed what looks to be a major fall from grace and now find themselves almost six (6) games back in the National League West. In addition, the Dodgers might have just risen to overtake the top spot in the MLB power rankings, and the Diamondbacks are on a tear having won 17 of their last 20 outings. The guys then detail the likes of Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger who both continue their torrid paces this season. Could we see dual Rookie of the Year/ MVP candidates? That would be a first in MLB history.
In the final segment of this week’s Sporting Edge, Xander & Roz speak to the offseason doldrums surrounding the NFL as training camp yet remains a few weeks off in the latter days of summer. Wrapping it all up, Roz and Witz spar over the Top 100 Players of 2017 and whether it was Brady/Rodgers or Jones/Brown, as there was a lot of tension in the room. However, both agree the seventh position was way too high of a ranking for Ezekiel Elliot, especially with this having been his first year. See you next week!
