Alex is back in the country which means Alex and Mike are both back with another episode of The Atlantic Files! While away, Jimmy Butler came to Philadelphia, Caris LeVert suffered an ugly injury, and the Atlantic Division continued to look like the best division in the East.
Jimmy Butler was shipped out of Minnesota for Dario Saric and Robert Covington among some other pieces. Alex was sad to see those two go but is more than excited to see the big three of Butler, Joel Embiid, and Ben Simmons. Mike and Alex both agree that this finally gives Philly someone to perform in the clutch.
Caris LeVert suffered a very ugly injury that, unfortunately, put a halt to such a great season that he was putting together. The good news is that the damage to his ankle wasn’t as serious as everyone thought. We may see him later this season, and finally, Mike can breathe.
Finally, the guys do a quick run through of the rest of the division and touch on other news around the league such as the Kevin Durant and Draymond Green beef.
