Sam Amico joined Andy and Jeff to discuss game 2 of the conference finals and the draft lottery.

They debated how important the lottery landing spot would be to LeBron James' future. Amico says LeBron's decision will have more to do with winning titles immediately and it'll be difficult to flip the pick for someone who'll guarantee LeBron stays just because of the timing of everything.

They kicked around options if the Cavs do draft at 8 or 9, including Trae Young, Colin Sexton and Wendell Carter, Jr.

Last they discussed adjustments for the Cavs in game 2 of the Celtics series.
