Here is the thing, if you are going to listen to Lavar and Dukes because you like sports and want entertaining and knowledgeable sports talk, you probably shouldn't listen to that show. If you know sports it takes about 2-3 days of listening to realize that Chad & Lavar really have limited perspective in sports.If you think Lavar was a great player(hence u dont know football) love hearing about theoretical what ifs and dont like college sports outside of the conversation of whether or not they should be paid and dont like baseball than its the show for you. If you follow Chad on twitter you can tell he is not really interested in sports,during important caps games he is watching a movie or tweeting about wrestling. But to his credit he is good at his job and gets enough info from his producer to make himself look good enough on the air that for the most part he doesnt look foolish. There are times where its shows, mainly when taking phone calls but he is quick to hang up on those calls or just dismiss them and quickly move on. Lavar is extremly unprepared,I wont even bring up his verbal issues but he relies on his past experiences to explain nearly every issue and it gets old. Lavar doesnt pay attention either which is a whole seperate issue because he probably doesn't really care or like Chad(after the incident) you can tell when he isn't paying attention he will sigh heavily and say "its possible" or when the other week he got bryce harper and branden holtby confused when chad asked him a question. There are plenty of threads on here about it but Chad is trapped, he so desperatly wants to be on the air and be somebody he is willing to do what he knows is a horrible radio show and probably gets even more upset that people listen to it and think he is a sports guy, it really has to be a personal nightmare. Lavar is the same guy he was on the field, just does enough to get by. He had all the talent in the world but he didnt study, thought he knew more than the coachs and was eventually benched. He is the same on radio, woefully underprepaired, doesn't work at his craft(u think he listens to air checks to improve lol) and questions nearly everyone when they dont agree with him.
