As the NBA closes in on positioning for the 2019 playoffs,  Andy Bunker and Arthur Triche talked about how emotional things seem to be getting around the league in their latest edition of "The Basketball Show" podcast.

The guys cover the recent incident in Salt Lake City as Thunder star Russell Westbrook got into a verbal altercation with a fan (who was later banned from all future Jazz games), and the overreaction of Knicks owner James Dolan with his comments to a ticket patron.

With 14 games remaining for the Hawks, Andy and AT discuss the team's progress at this point, how bright the future looks for Lloyd Pierce's team, and if Trae Young has a chance at winning the Rookie of the Year award.

In their final two segments, the guys touch on the legacy of LeBron James and if this season has been a disaster with the Lakers, and if the Warriors are creating doubt in their minds on their quest for three straight NBA championships.
