PBT Podcast: Unwatchable All-Star, buyout market, Hawks coaching search

Kurt Helin and Corey Robinson answer a series of lightening round questions surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets and more.

There are good things with the NBA All-Star Weekend: The 3-point Contest, this year the Dunk Contest and Mac McClung, and the many NBA-themed events that come up around it such as a Basketball Without Borders event, clinics and events with the youth of Salt Lake City, the Legends Breakfast and much more. But the actual All-Star Game itself is unwatchable.

Corey Robinson and Kurt Helin of NBC Sports dive into the weekend and discuss if anything can be done to fix it. From there, the topic turns to the Atlanta Hawks firing Nate McMillan and their coaching search. If McMillan was a scapegoat for bigger problems, will a new coach fix them?

Then they dive into the buyout market and the moves of Kevin Love to the Heat and Russell Westbrook to the Clippers. Mixed in with that is Corey’s Jukebox music and NBA connections, plus a quick look ahead at the final quarter of the season.
