New Orleans. The Big Easy. The NBA’s biggest party is coming to America’s premiere party city (sorry Vegas) and it is going to be something special. I have a personal goal of gaining 20 pounds this weekend.
I am in New Orleans and stopped eating gumbo long enough to tape the latest NBC ProBasketballTalk Podcast with Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio.
We discuss Damian Lillard‘s busy weekend, the new Dunk Contest format, if Stephen Curry win the Three Point Contest and who is the MVP favorite for the big game? There is plenty of Anthony Davis talk, but don’t be surprised if Kevin Durant goes all Kevin Durant and takes home the hardware.
