Jeff Van Gundy Discusses Cavs-Warriors, Russell Westbrook, and Why Patrick Ewing Hasn't Gotten Head

Jeff Van Gundy — along with Mike Breen, Mark Jackson, and Lisa Salters — will be on the broadcast team for Cavs vs. Warriors on Christmas Day at 2:30 pm ET on ABC. He joins the podcast to discuss:

  • Could any team not named the Warriors or the Cavs win a title in the next three seasons?
  • Resting players, and what a solution could be
  • Whether Russell Westbrook’s play this season would inspire free agents to play with him, or repel them
  • Widening the court so 3-pointers are all the same distance
  • His coaching tree of Steve Clifford, Tom Thibodeau, and Mike Malone; why hasn’t Patrick Ewing gotten a shot to be a head coach yet?
  • What are the odds he’d ever coach again?

Hope you enjoy!
