Jeff Pearlman on Winning Time and the modern NBA

Jeff Pearlman, bestselling author of the book on which HBO’s Winning Time television show is based, joins our Ben DuBose to discuss how storylines related to the 1980s Los Angeles Lakers shaped the modern NBA. Topics include Houston’s role as a foil to the Lakers; highlights and key moments from the show; and why it still has relevance to fans outside of Los Angeles.

Friday’s show also offers insight on the latest reports surrounding Kevin Porter Jr.’s assault arrest and his uncertain future with the Rockets and the NBA, including why a trade could be more realistic than some think.
