It’s been almost two months since a game of NBA basketball has been played. In fact, Sunday, May 10, will mark exactly two months since the Los Angeles Lakers played their last game — a game they lost by two points.
But while there are no basketball games currently being played, there is still a healthy amount of basketball discussion going on, and not just because of how much uncertainty there is surrounding the return of the NBA.
In this week’s episode of “The 30,” Anthony and Jas break down ESPN’s latest two episodes of “The Last Dance,” both of which aired on Sunday night.
To kick things off, the guys discuss how competitive Michael Jordan was during his NBA days and why that separated him from the crowd. Then, Anthony and Jas compare trash talking and the combativeness of NBA teams from the 90s to today. The guys discuss how it would be if LeBron James and Kevin Durant played with the same edge as the players from 20 years ago.
Following that, they talk about how they felt about seeing Kobe Bryant on the documentary and the brotherly bond MJ and Kobe shared. To wrap things up Anthony and Jas share where the documentary could be better and discuss why Jordan should have spoken up more about social justice issues.
