ESPN’s Rachel Nichols, Jackie MacMullan, and David Fizdale head to “Crunch Time” and discuss big man Pau Gasol, who played for the Purple and Gold for seven seasons and won two titles, looking to return to the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers, where his brother Marc plays.

They also talk about Stephen Curry claiming the Golden State Warriors benefited from their short 2019-20 season and ponder how James Harden’s teammates on the Houston Rockets should feel.
