Coast 2 Coast Podcast Episode #27: Hawks Front Office Changes, NBA Playoff Pessimism, and More

Kawhi Leonard

$495. That’s a lot of money for a quality television. But we can manage that.

Lavar: No, that’s for our off-brand Kobe 3’s.


Yes, Lonzo Ball‘s new shoes have been released and are available for purchase now and Dante and Austin are here to break down the price tag and why Lavar Ball is the best marketer in the country. After that, the Hawks made some front office changes and their future seems uncertain. Where does Paul Millsap end up — assuming he opts out of his option? Another interesting name to watch come free agency is Tim Hardaway Jr.

Then, the guys turn their attention to the NBA Playoffs. Does Austin have any newfound concerns for the Warriors? They discuss the Kelly OlynykKelly Oubre conflict, how good Kawhi Leonard is, plus how the Spurs adjusted to stymie James Harden in Game 2.
