PBT Podcast: Durant trade fallout, are Suns contenders, and All-Star Saturday night

In this additional of Kurt's Korner, Helin and Corey Robinson preview NBA All-Star Weekend, including predictions for stacked challenges on Saturday.

The NBA is still reverberating from the shockwaves of the NBA trade deadline, specifically the blockbuster that sent Kevin Durant from the Brooklyn Nets to the Phoenix Suns.

Does this make the Suns contenders? The favorites to come out of the West? What do they need to do to prove they belong on that level?

Corey Robinson of NBC Sports isn’t convinced they are, and he and I dive into all of that, plus where the Nets go from here. Then, on this week’s Corey’s Jukebox segment, it’s more Suns talk, with a little Britney Spears thrown in, and a nod to the Jazz.

Then we get into All-Star Saturday night, why it’s better than the big game on Sunday, and what to look for in the Skills Competition, the 3-Point Contest, and the Dunk Contest. Finally, they end with a little Super Bowl halftime talk (and avoid the end-of-the-game discussion).
