Shannon Sharpe: Lakers are better off to win the Finals with Westbrook, but it’s not a natural fit I UNDISPUTED

After a season derailed by injuries, the Los Angeles Lakers have been busy this summer. First they traded Montrezl Harrell, KCP, and Kyle Kuzma to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Russell Westbrook, giving LeBron James and AD a big three in LA. Then they acquired veterans in Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington, and Kent Bazemore. They also added some much-needed shooting in Kendrick Nunn and Malik Monk, who both shot 42 percent on catch-and-shoot 3s last season. Hear whether Shannon Sharpe believes the Lakers are in a better or worse spot than last year to win the Finals.

Jason McIntyre: With Russell Westbrook, the Lakers are a clear No. 2 to win the Finals behind Brooklyn I UNDISPUTED

Russell Westbrook is headed home to Los Angeles, as he will reportedly join LeBron James and Anthony Davis on the Lakers. It came with a price to get the former MVP as the purple and gold had to trade away Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl Harrell, and the 22nd overall pick in this year’s draft. It remains to be seen how the Lakers will fill out the roster around their new ‘Big 3’ as free agency begins today. Jason McIntyre explains how the Lakers will ‘wreck the league in the regular season with Westbrook and why they’re a clear No. 2 to win the Finals behind Brooklyn.’

I’ll take that any day.’ While Phoenix Suns’ PG Chris Paul just last week said of his Finals opponent quote, ‘He comes down there, he dunks, he dunks some more and he shoots a layup.’ Hear whether Shannon Sharpe believes Giannis Antetokounmpo has earned his respect during these Finals.

Chris Broussard: Giannis’ block on Ayton is the 2nd best block in Finals’ history ‘ UNDISPUTED

Giannis Antetokounmpo’s biggest contribution in last night’s win came at the defensive end.

Afterwards, his teammate Pat Connaughton didn’t mince words, saying quote ‘it’s the best block of all time. Obviously, we’re a little biased and you can talk about the LeBron block as well. But as far as a block where he was covering the pick-and-roll… it’s about as impressive as you can get.’ Chris Broussard joins Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe to rate Giannis’ incredible block in Game 4.
