Talking 2011 NBA Playoffs (AUDIO)

I broke down the NBA Playoffs (5/11) with host Christopher Hrabe of Sports 56 WHBQ in Memphis.

We talked at length about how impressive the Memphis Grizzlies have been thus far in the playoffs, and why unheralded guys like Tony Allen and Shane Battier have been so instrumental to their success.

I also broke down the Russell Westbrook-Kevin Durant scenario and how, with the second highest usage rate of any remaining player in the playoffs, Westbrook must look for KD more if the Thunder are to be a legitimate title contender.

On another note, we also discussed the Bulls' struggles and how league MVP Derrick Rose has to do a better job of facilitating the basketball for Chicago to advance out of the vaunted Eastern Conference.
