Marc Spears of the ESPN's The Undefeated joined the Bald Faced Truth radio show (12-3p on 750-AM and 102.9-FM) to talk about the NBA playoffs, the coaching hires, and why he thinks Kevin Durant is going to stay in Oklahoma City... and how Dwight Howard would be an interesting fit in Portland.
Listen to the full interview here.
"I think (the playoff success) makes it really, really hard for (Durant) to leave now," Spears said. "Even if they lose... doesn't it seems weird if he jumps to the team that just beat you in the conference finals instead of saying maybe let's find a piece to get over the hump... I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up just re-signing another year, and then aligning himself with Russell Westbrook to make a decision at the same time."
On Dwight Howard to Portland:
"If he's your third option, he's a great third option... Dwight's a good guy. He gets beat up a lot, but to me, he's a really good guy. Under the circumstances, with the lack of post scoring and some added defense there, I'd certainly sign him up. Certainly, the price has to be the right price... who else are they going to get who is better? If Dwight Howard is interested, under the right price, I'd be interested back."
On the Western Conference Finals:
"I think it's going to be a great series, a long series. I think Golden State wins it. I picked them in seven (games)... the Thunder have two starts, they have size, they have depth... I'm not discounting the Thunder's chance of winning this series at all."
On Nate McMillan getting the Pacers coaching job:
I'm sure he learned a lot in (USA Basketball) and I'm sure learned a lot being the lead assistant in Indiana. You get to sit back and sit there and think about, '... Maybe my approach shouldn't be this anymore...' so I think it's a good hire."
On LaMarcus Aldridge's season in San Antonio:
"He looked great. He looked dominating."
On Memphis opening:
"One thing they're doing is interviewing a lot of coaches; a lot of great candidates."
