Rick Barry is a former NBA player considered by most to be the greatest pure small forward of all-time.
Rick joined Ed and Steve to talk about the NBA playoffs, and give some predictions on what may happen.
Rick began by talking about how much Serge Ibaka means to the Thunder and how the Spurs are able to “brutalize” Oklahoma City in the paint and dominate the games. Rick believes that without Ibaka the Spurs will beat the Thunder with relative ease and advance on to the NBA finals.
Rick also talked about Tim Duncan and the possibility of him being the best Power Forward we’ve ever seen. Rick said Duncan is such a great team guy who spreads the ball around and also scores when his team needs him to.
Rick also talked about his dream lineup including himself at small forward. Rick has Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Michael Jordan, and Magic and says you can’t pick a 5 that could beat them.
