Eli Manning Reaction (0:00 – 17:00)

The NBA Outsiders stepped outside their comfort zone to react to the benching of Eli Manning. The outrage from Giants fans, football fans, and former (and current) players has been evident. The love for Eli has been pouring in from New York, but also all over the country. Pete Kennedy and Frank Villani, two Giants fans, share their reactions and thoughts to how the benching was handled. The other NBA Outsiders, Justin Babb and John-Lucas Duffy, don’t own any New York Giants bias but share their reaction and what they saw from outside New York circles.

NBA Outsiders

Derrick Rose: D Rose might be hanging up the sneakers and calling it a career. He is reportedly not with the Cavs right now and is considering retirement. We shed light on his career, expectations moving forward, and if he should walk away from the game.

Los Angeles Clippers: Blake Griffin is hurt for two months. Patrick Beverly is out for the year. Danilo Gallinari has been hurt. Milos Teodosic has been hurt as well. Is it time to say goodbye to Doc Rivers? The Clippers might need to blow it up.

David Fizdale: The second NBA coach to get fired this season, David Fizdale is out as Grizzlies head coach. Is this look bad for Marc Gasol? Will Fizdale get another chance. The Outsiders have some ideas on where he should coach next.

Oklahoma City Thunder Struggle (47:30 – 63:00): THIS IS THE BIG DEBATE OF THE POD. Team Frank vs Team Duff. 

Is the Thunder’s problem a Russell Westbrook problem? How much blame should fall on his shoulders? What more can Russ do or how much does he need to change in order for this team to start winning. Things got heated. Are you Team Duff or Team Frank?

LeBron and The Cleveland Cavaliers Surging: LeBron is ridiculous and the Cavs are back. Is it as simple as that?

We Urge You To Calm Down Because Lonzo Ball Is Fine:  The Outsiders actually all agree and want to send a PSA to all the people calling Lonzo Ball (and other rookies) a bust. They may be inconsistent right now but have what it takes. One day he is the “youngest player to” do something impressive. The next day he is a bust. Calm down. The Outsiders (actually all agreed) confidence in Lonzo Ball has not wavered.
