Chris Broussard: “After a couple years in the NBA, I would go over there if I were LeBron James! If I’m a star basketball player I want to play in the best league, but if I already did that than why not go over there? If you’re Giannis and you’re in his situation then I would not go over, that’s a different story.”

Rob Parker: “I would absolutely consider going to play overseas over there if they gave me the money, it’s a no brainer. I’m not a player though so I’m not sure what they’re thinking.”

Tonight on The Odd Couple, Chris Broussard and Rob Parker talk about a conversation that hasn’t really been brought up in the sports world—that is if Saudi Arabia ever created their own basketball league would that cause trouble for the NBA like LIV did to the PGA in the sport of golf? The guys go back and forth giving examples and opinions regarding this subject.
