Daryl Morey has stepped down, Tyronn Lue has been hired, and the Los Angeles Lakers have been crowned as the 2020 NBA Champions. So, in other words, the last week has been quite eventful.

I guess congratulations are in order for LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the rest of the Lakers. They seemed to have cruised their way to the Finals in a one-of-a-kind post-season and then took care of business against a much weaker Miami Heat team. One could say that this is downplaying the achievement, but others could say that’s the truth to the matter.

Okay fine, congrats Lakers.

Tyronn Lue has been hired as the head coach of the other team in Los Angeles. Now that Doc Rivers is in Philly, it’ll be interesting to see if Lue can do what Rivers could not. Can he keep everyone from fighting Kawhi Leonard because of his special treatment?

Micro ball in Houston is officially coming to an end and so is the Daryl Morey era. Since he took over in Houston, the Rockets have had the second-best record in the league and the only team to have not missed the playoffs. Even though they didn’t win a ring, that’s one hell of a resume. Teams better be lining up at his door for his services!

Finally, the NBA Draft will be coming sooner than we think. So, it’s time to take a look at who the potential top picks could be. Will Lamelo Ball fall further than originally thought? Who will the Warriors take to go along with the return of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green next year?

All of that and more in the latest episode below!
