Chris Broussard: “I think the playoffs have been great... This Lakers-Warriors series is going to be fantastic, I got the Warriors in 6 or 7. I think the Lakers have a huge advantage with the size but the thing is, Golden State is going to shoot the lights out if you open up lanes which could happen. I do agree Steph has nothing to lose, LeBron is playing with house money. He can improve his legacy but I don’t think it’s on the line. If Steph were to beat LeBron in this series and win the Finals, I do think there would be people discussing if Steph is better than LeBron...”
Rob Parker: “I’m not as hyped as most people I get it though, whenever you have Steph & LeBron in a series you expect it to be a great series. If you look at the teams you expect the Warriors to win, I think it would be a big upset if the Lakers won. When it comes to who has to lose more between LeBron and Steph, LeBron’s legacy is on the line—Steph has nothing to lose. “
Tonight on The Odd Couple, Chris Broussard and Rob Parker go back and forth on their predictions for the second round but give their main focus to the Lakers- Warriors series. Chris has a strong feeling the Warriors are going to win the series but Rob isn’t buying it and thinks the Lakers will win in 6 or 7 because of their size. The two then debate the legacies of LeBron and Steph/talk about who has more to lose in this series coming up.
