About #thisleague UNCUT
#thisleague UNCUT dishes on hot NBA topics beyond what Chris Haynes and Marc Stein report on social media with even more candor and opinion. Stein and Haynes go deep and dive into the all the NBA topics, rumblings, and intel!
On the latest episode of #thisleague UNCUT, Marc Stein tells Chris Haynes that he thinks we already know the 10 teams that will occupy the top 10 spots in the final West standings ... because Stein contends that the Mavericks will not be able to rally from their two consecutive losses to Charlotte to even make the play-in round. From there the guys go deep on the Mavericks' nightmarish weekend, Luka Doncic discussing his frustrations, Dallas' struggles since trading for Kyrie Irving and how badly the Mavs miss the guy Chris just interviewed for Bleacher Report: Jalen Brunson. There's also much more on the West playoff race, LeBron James' earlier-than-expected comeback, Patrick Berkeley's impact on the Bulls and, thanks to Haynes' storytelling, more about Stein's motoring preferences than you ever expected to hear.
