This week on The Underdog:

On this week’s episode Chris Horwedel and Anshu Khanna talk about:

1:23– Los Angeles Lakers – Sitting at 1st place in the West, the Lakers are clearly the best team in the league, right?
10:17– Golden State Warriors – Is this the clearest-cut case of tanking we’ve seen since the 76ers?
13:25– Houston Rockets – James Harden is averaging 39.2 points per game, can he average 40? Is he a better natural scorer than Michael Jordan?
15:03– New Orleans Pelicans – Averaging 25.9, 7.3 and 3.9, has Brandon Ingram has ascended into star territory this season?
17:35– Denver Nuggets – Mired in 3rd place, do the Nuggets need to get aggressive and make a move for a star to win the West?
19:30– San Antonio Spurs – At 5-9 through 14 games, is this Pop’s last season and will they look to move Demar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge?
21:48– LA Clippers – Between rest and load management, will Paul George and Kawhi Leonard play more than 40 games together this season? Impact?
23:39– Portland Trail Blazers – Struggling to start the year — and now signing Carmelo — is this the year the Blazers break up their backcourt? (Trade CJ McCollum)
25:16– Dallas Mavericks – Luka Doncic continues to set seemingly unbreakable records, is Luka a top 3 player in the NBA at just 20 years old?
27:51– Oklahoma City Thunder – The Thunder find themselves in the horrible position of being bad, but not terrible, will they ensure they change that by the deadline?
28:28– Utah Jazz – In order to take the next step in the West, the Jazz need to be aggressive and upgrade from Mike Conley at PG
28:54– Memphis Grizzlies – While Ja Morant has been sensational, the Grizzlies should be worried about the lack of growth from Jaren Jackson Jr.
29:45– Phoenix Suns – Averaging 14.5 points and 5.6 boards in just 24 mins, Aron Baynes deserves to be in the MIP discussion
31:00– Sacramento Kings – Given the Buddy Hield extension and his desire to start, the Kings will need to move Bogdan Bogdanovic at the deadline
32:09– Minnesota Timberwolves – Overshadowed by Karl-Anthony Towns‘ incredible season, Andrew Wiggins has elevated his game significantly. Is this the real Wiggins or a mirage?

Very likely the only website contributor who is also an NFL owner (yes, a family member once bought into one of those valueless stock sales and gifted him a share of the Green Bay Packers), Anshu has been #belt-ing his way into your hearts and loins since joining Chris Horwedel's NFL Draft Blitz circa 2007 and contributing to ProFootballFocus starting in 2010. A lifelong Chicagoan with Wisconsin ties, this King In The North spends his winters attached to the United and Kohl Center hardwoods and ice rinks, as well as to the Frozen Tundras of Lambeau Field and Camp Randall Stadium. His summers are occupied by keeping a watchful eye on the White Sox farm system and creepily monitoring spandex-ed NFL Draftees. Expect a nerd-out and judgmental elitism. Also, made-up words.
