Heatcheck podcast – Can Anthony Davis carry the Los Angeles Lakers without LeBron James?

Host Jaydee Dyer is joined by three-time NBA champion BJ Armstrong and Sky Sports analyst Mo Mooncey to chop up the latest news and storylines from around the league.

Jaydee begins the show by rounding up all the latest news in the NBA and beyond: Russell Westbrook’s triple-double record, Michael Jordan’s enshrining of Kobe Bryant into the Basketball Hall of Fame this Saturday and rapper J.Cole signing for the Rwanda Patriots in the new Basketball Africa League.

182 Triple-Doubles and counting, the most in NBA history. Russell Westbrook is different πŸ™Œ

Former point-guard @bjarmstrong shared his admiration for Russ πŸ‘

Rapper J. Cole looks set to fulfil a dream of playing pro-basketball after signing a deal with the Rwanda Patriots ☁@TheHoopGenius discusses the potential impact on the Basketball Africa League ahead of its inaugural season 🌍

In Hot or Not: BJ and Mo have different views on the troubling situation in Boston, who have now been relegated to a spot in the Play-In Tournament after losing Jaylen Brown for the season.

  • Heat clinch playoff spot with victory in Boston
  • Celtics’ Brown out for remainder of season

Jaydee proposes the resurgent Anthony Davis has what it takes to carry the Los Angeles Lakers on his own if LeBron James does not return to full health. Well, Mo is not having any of that either and delivers a quick reality check to Lakers supporters with Steph Curry and Golden State lurking in the Play-In.

After that, it’s the turn of a Heatcheck viewer to submit their hot take: that the Wizards will come through the Play-In AND beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the playoffs. Rebuttals on a postcard please.


This week’s Off the Court is a special feature on Zion Williamson’s first signature shoe with the famous Jordan brand.

To wrap up, Jaydee looks ahead to the final games of the regular season this weekend, including predictions from Mo and BJ.

Beyond that, we also have some WNBA action, with Candace Parker and the Chicago Sky taking on the Washington Mystics on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Arena and Mix at 6pm.
