PBT Podcast: Trade rumors, and is Stephen Curry the modern MJ?

With Mac McClung set to compete in the 2023 Slam Dunk Contest, Kurt Helin and Corey Robinson debate whether the G League should have a place in the competition.

Are the Raptors going to trade Fred VanVleet? What about the Spurs with Jakob Poeltl? The best player likely to be moved is John Collins from the Hawks, or Bojan Bogdanovic from the Pistons, but will they actually be traded?

It’s three weeks from the trade deadline in the NBA and rumors are popping up everywhere, which is part of what Corey Robinson of NBC Sports and I break down in the latest PBT Extra Podcast.

First, we get into Steve Kerr’s comments that Stephen Curry is the modern MJ — is Curry really in the Jordan conversation? What about the impact off the court?

From there it’s Corey’s Jukebox and some VanVleet musical talk, followed by a discussion about whether it’s a good thing the G-League’s Mac McClung is in the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest. Then it’s trade talk time... followed by what world record do you think you could break?
