In today's episode, Michael and Chris give their thoughts on the Western Conference standings. Assuming the Warriors, Suns, and Jazz all finish in the top three, who else is going to have home-court advantage? The Mavs? The Clippers? The Timberwolves?!? And given all their injuries, how should the Nuggets treat the rest of their season? They then take a look at Tyrese Maxey's breakout sophomore season, and how ironic it is that he would be a perfect fit beside Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. From there, they debate the NBA's most and least coachable stars before Chris calls Michael out on his greatest troll job yet.
