On Today's show, Ben Golliver and Rob Mahoney pick up their jaws after LeBron James's pointed criticism of Daryl Morey on the Hong Kong/China issue. Did LeBron have a point about Morey's bad timing? Should activism be convenient? What did this episode reveal about LeBron? Did the controversy prove that Kawhi Leonard made the right decision to join the Clippers rather than the Lakers? Then, Ben and Rob shift gears to make their picks for MVP, ROY, DPOY, COY, SMOY and MIP. The usual suspects (Giannis and Zion) make appearances, but so do some other big names (Embiid, AD, Luka). Finally, they close with why context matters in Buddy Hield's negotiation standoff with the Kings, and the different levels of winning baked into the Wizards' new contract extension for Bradley Beal.
