Championship dreams, chemistry nightmares

1h 32m | May 9, 2022

The Over and Back Classic NBA Podcast returns with an episode on teams that added a big star (or more) but severely underperformed.

Two examples this year with the Brooklyn Nets being swept in the first round after gaining (and losing) James Harden (and never getting Ben Simmons to replace him) and the Los Angeles Lakers winning only 33 games after adding Russell Westbrook.

Teams we'll focus on this episode: 

  • 1971 Atlanta Hawks
  • 1999 Houston Rockets
  • 1975 Memphis Sounds
  • 2013 Los Angeles Lakers
  • 1976 Washington Bullets
  • 2014 Brooklyn Nets
  • 1976 & 1977 New York Knicks
