You knew we had to ask. And you knew we were going to discuss it on Episode 76 of the Hang Time Podcast, even if we didn’t know what the suspension was for the Lakers’ Metta World Peace while we were yapping about it.
(The league handed down a seven-game penalty for World Peace’s nasty elbow to the side of the head of Thunder swingman James Harden shortly after we finished taping.)
In addition to that conversation, we spent some quality time talking with Houston Rockets point guard Goran Dragic. He joined us to talk about the Rockets’ wild late-season ride that didn’t result in a playoff bid, his hoops heroes as a child, why he’s a NBA player and not a soccer star and plenty more.
We kicked off the chatter, though, talking World Peace. And who better to discuss that with than SBNation.com contributor and noted commentator, satirist and writer Bomani Jones, one of our original guests back in the Hang Time Podcast‘s early days.
We also talked about our season-ending awards ballots and who goes where for MVP, Rookie of the Year, Most Improved and a whole lot more.
Check it all out on Episode 76 of the Hang Time Podcast with Goran Dragic of the Houston Rockets and Bomani Jones.
