For those who enjoyed a nice, quiet Father’s Day weekend, welcome to the chaos. The Boston Celtics no longer have the number one overall pick, Paul George’s time in Indiana might have just gone the way of the Dodo and Markelle Fultz and Magic Johnson are star-crossed lovers.

Wait, what?

We start with the Paul George rumors, which have gotten completely out of control. He reportedly told the Pacers he would not be coming back next year, which prompted them to do whatever they could to better their leverage in trades and brought the Cleveland Cavaliers into this firestorm.

Harrison and I analyze trade scenarios and finally try to predict what might happen. Let’s just say we disagree.

As the conversation swung to Fultz, the Sixers and Celtics, things got a little weird. Once again, we disagreed, making this the most tenuous our friendship has ever been. Thank goodness for Zip Recruiter.
