Daily News Sports Talk Podcast: NBA playoff talk (sorry Knicks)

The NBA playoffs start Saturday, so Sports Illustrated’s Jake Fischer (@JakeLFischer) returns to The Popcast this week to break down the matchups and offer his Finals pick. Fischer and host Daniel Popper (@danielrpopper) discuss which team in the West can challenge the Warriors and if the Cavaliers are in deep trouble because of their defensive problems this season. Also, Popper gives his take on LaVar Ball, and criticizes the outspoken basketball dad for creating unfair expectations and pressure for his three teenage sons.
