Chris Palmer has had his ups and downs as an NBA reporter, so we’re going to label this an egregious hot-take moment.
Palmer, hoping to stir things up, came up with some early NBA predictions like NBA, how much Russell Westbrook would average and the league’s top back courts.
Palmer was going strong until he predicted or stated that the Lakers duo of D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson was the NBA’s second best.
Best Backcourts: 1. Step & Klay 2. Russell & Clarkson 3. Wall & Beal.
