NBA Playoff Preview (VIDEO)

In a new segment with Noah Coslov of CineSport, I break down a potential sleeping giant in the Western Conference, and discuss why the Lakers have enjoyed success with the injured Kobe Bryant out of the lineup.

We also consider the fate of the Bulls without a fully healthy Derrick Rose, and break down Miami's recent issues of late, which include consecutive losses to Boston. The main problem right now for the Heat is a severe lack of defensive pressure both on and off the ball with rotations. With the playoffs fast approaching, it's not something to be taken lightly either.
