Michael and I talk about the Golden State game and his desire to see the Hornets step on the throat of their enemies, grind them into the dust, and revel in the resulting tears and agony.  Then we talk about Davis's big game, the improving Aminu, and shockingly get to talk about Rivers using adjectives other than terrible, awful, and revolting.  Then we answer a listener's question about the Luxury Tax and this teams flexibility, which inevitably leads to trade talk that involves Josh Smith, Ersan Ilyasova, Wilson Chandler and Rudy.  Of course.

We wrap up by previewing Sacramento's unbalanced roster and the <em>exciting</em> (damnit!) San Antonio Spurs.

Michael and I talk about the recent winning, talk about whether the Playoffs are even a remote possibility, Address Anthony Davis' short playing time, recap the wins in Philly and Boston, address the real non-Gordony reason for the winning, and play which PG do you want: Jrue Holiday or Rajon Rondo.  Then we take some of the messages you've left for us about whether the Hornets should hire an offensive Guru, what they could offer for Kyle Lowry, and last, we answer two questions about the Draft, Draft, Draft!  Oh, I love the draft.   In particular we do our favorite college players, talk about best fits, and mention players you should look for.

Oh, and then we preview the Warriors.
