Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 92 – Offseason Updates for Chicago Bulls and Phoenix Suns
5785
The Bulls have done well in the draft the last two seasons and have some exciting young talent on the team. They also invested money in Zach Lavine and Jabari Parker. But important decision loom with a number of other players on the roster. Also, who is going to play point guard? The Suns invested heavily in Devon Booker and brought in a new coach. They also had the number one overall pick in the draft. What are we watching for from the Suns this season? All of this and more.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 91 – Offseason Updates for Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets
6965
Philadelphia may have played this offseason conservatively while working through a search for a new GM. But they have very possibly the best young core group of players as any team in the league. They exceed expectations last season by a good measure. Is there room for them to have a better season than they did last season? The Denver Nuggets have an exciting young core as well and perhaps underperformed last season. They continue to be dysfunctional on the defensive end of the court. So they gave a big contract to Will Barton and signed Isaiah Thomas to a contract to be a bench scorer. Will that move the needle for this team at all? All of this and more.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 90 – Offseason Updates for Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers
6698
The Bucks added a legitimate coach after finally ending the Jason Kidd experiment. The roster is largely the same apart from a few veterans to help man the power forward and center positions. Can they challenge the big three of Boston, Toronto and Philadelphia? How might the coaching change impact the play of Giannis? Portland largely ran it back apart from their most important front court player off of the bench and their most important back court player off of the bench. Are the young guys ready to step up and help? How urgent is the Dame legacy situation? All of this and more.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 85 – NBA Draft Recap
6687
We don’t cover every pick but do contrast some interest players drafted in stretches. We cover the mid to late lottery guards (Collin Sexton, Kevin Knox, Shai Gilgus-Alexander and Jerome Robinson). We know we cheated a bit by including Know in there but it seemed appropriate to contrast those players. We cover post lottery wings (Troy Brown, Zaire Smith, Donte DiVicenzo, Lonnie Walker, Kevin Huerter and Josh Okogie). We briefly discuss how weirdly different the three bigs taken late in the first round are (Moritz Wagner, Robert Williams and Omari Spellman). We cover players were a bit surprised to see drop to the second round (De’Anthony Melton, Khyri Thomas and Shake Milton.) &nbsp; Follow Dane on Twitter: @DaneMooreNBA Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnbaidenti&nbsp;<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

There are many other content providers that we value, as we are sure that you do, that are providing excellent, comprehensive analysis on the 2018 NBA draft class at large. But we did take some time to provide our evaluations on some of the players that seem to be up for some prospects that are moving up and down mocks and big boards since the NBA draft combine. On this episode we cover Zhaire Smith, Keita Bates-Diop, Shake Milton, Jacob Evans, Khyri Thomas and Troy Brown.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 82 – Finals Update
4910
The Cavs lost a precious opportunity to make this series from the beginning when game one slipped away. Whether you blame that on the officials or JR Smith what we saw in game two was rich in observation for what we might expect to see happen the rest of the way. Will Lebron operate as a scorer or a facilitator? Can the Cavs find a way to defend the three point line and at the rim? Is there any chance this series tracks the way that the Eastern Conference finals did when the Cavs lost the first two games on the road but found a way to win four out of five games? All of this and more.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 80 – Conference Finals Updates
6021
Both conference finals seem to be at a competitive place. But watching the coaching adjustments in each series has been nothing short of fascinating. The Cavaliers are the only team of the four that is not relying on switching on defense and that really worked well for them in game 3. Will the presence of a traditional center continue to get them the match ups they want? The Warriors have been dealing with the Rockets switch heavy defensive scheme by relying on Kevin Durant’s individual offensive creation. Is that a good and sustainable idea. Also, is Steph Currt missing the presence of Zaza Pachulia to help him going offensively? All of this and more.

The Raptors held true to the identity of their 2017-18 regular season, even without Fred Van Vleet. They were not strictly dependent upon the shooting of Lowry and DeRozan. The Wizards will need to try to defend in game 2 with suboptimal rim protection. The Sixers shortened their rotation in the second half versus the Heat and it made all the difference in the game. What will Spo do going into game 2? The Spurs were not very inspiring in their game 1 loss to the Warriors. Are their any adjustments they can make with Curry sitting out all of the first round? The Pelicans got a road win to take advantage in their series with the Blazers. Both team were gassed at the end of the game but get a couple days of rest before game 2.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 60 – Hawks, Mavericks, Bulls and Kings updates plus a few special guests
5929
Important Note: This episode was recorded before the disturbing news regarding the Dallas Mavericks organization. The conversation regarding the Mavericks on the podcast are limited to Ownership, Head of Basketball Operations, Coach and players. We don’t know if as the news unfolds if it will changed the viewed expressed on this episode. We will address that if and when appropriate. The Hawks have gotten good rookie campaigns from their drafted rookies John Collins and Tyler Dorsey. What else is developing with the team. Is Dennis Schroder the point guard of the future? The Mavericks have a significantly worse record than their point differential and net rating would suggest. What’s going on with that? Also, are they invested in Yogi beyond this season?

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 57 – Who will be the buyers and the sellers at the deadline? Updates for Celtics, Knicks, Magic and Lakers
5315
Which teams do we think will be most aggressive in the trade market this week? How seriously should we take the Celtics in terms of their postseason potential? The Knicks are struggling to win games at the pace they were last month. What is going in with them? What should they be evaluating right now? We picked a bad week to watch the Magic because Aaron Gordon did not play. What were are observations? This season in Orlando is still mostly about Aaaron Gordon, but we enjoyed watching some of their other players this week. The Lakers had an impressive win in OKC on Sunday.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 55 – Are the Thunder a contender? Updates on Raptors, Cavaliers, Pacers and Jazz
5339
The OKC Thunder have won 8 in a row and seem to have put it together on offense. Are they a threat in the Western conference? The Cavaliers are dead last in defensive rating. Are they likely to make the NBA finals? Not as constructed. What needs to happen? The Pacers are the team that if the NBA were March Madness would be called the Cinderalla team of all Cinderalla teams which seems appropriate given that Victor Oladipo is playing basketball in Indiana again. The Jazz got an impressive win in Toronto this week. Should Jazz fans be hopeful that they can get back into playoff contention? And who got our awards this week?

5779
Now that it’s widely known that the Hornets are looking for a trade partner for Kemba Walker as to dig out of some of their financial contraints we discuss which organizations should step up and make a serious effort to acquire him. Are the Miami Heat a team that is going to have to be dealt with in the Eastern Conference playoffs? What is going on with Hassan Whiteside who sat the entire 4th quarter the comeback win over the Hornets? Are the Bucks as pedestrian as their numbers indicate they are? It really comes down to 2 positions on the roster… which ones? And that analysis might be quite similar to our perspective on the Wizards. Weird! Why are the Nets still so much fun to watch? Why are they still winning games they are not supposed to be winning and how is that low wrecking what is going on in Cleveland? And who got our awards this week?

The Cavaliers had a rough week. Are the Raptors playing better than any team in the Eatern Conference right now? If the playoffs started today would we consider them to be the favorite to win the Eastern Conference finals and make the finals? The Pelicans had some nice results this week? Do they enough depth and diversity on the roster to moves toward the middle of the Western Conference playoff standings? The need to add to their roster. Where do they need to add? The Grizzlies season is more than off track. What should be their objectives for the rest of this season? Why might Tyreke Evans prefers to stay in Memphis for the rest of the season rather than being move to a playoff bound team? The Nuggets are a strange team. Could they get better via subtraction rather than addition? The Pistons are trying to survive in the post Reggie Jackson era (of this season). What should be their objectives for the rest of the season? Why might Avery Bradley prefer to finish the season elsewhere? And who got our awards this week?

5025
Is Kyrie Irving a legitimate MVP candidate? We discuss. Are the Bulls as good as their 10-5 stretch might suggest? No. But we had fun watching some of the young players on the Chicago squad this week. The Mavericks have been pretty good since Maxi Kleber was inserted into the starting lineup. Do we expect that to continue? We discuss. Guess who are the two players with the worst individual net rating in the league averaging 30 minutes or more per game? Hint: They both start for the Mavericks. What did we learn about the Warriors this week? What did we learn about the Spurs this week? We discuss. And who got our awards this week?

We continue our in-season analysis. Is there anything we enjoyed about watching the Kings? Yes, his name is Garrett Temple. What are our views on Willie Cauley-Stein, Buddy Hield and Malachi Richardson? We discuss. We had way more fun watching the Suns. Who would have thought that the first week of this season?&nbsp; Why is it critical for Tyson Chandler to be on this roster? We discuss. How have the Clippers remain in contact with the rest of the playoff contenders in the Western Conference? We discuss. Is there any reason for us to be hopeful for the Hornets this season? Probably not apart from how incredible Kemba Walker is to watch any time. Why will we continue watching them this season? We discuss. And who got our awards this week?

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 48 – Team Updates for Blazers, Nuggets, Pacers, Hawks
4904
We continue our in-season analysis. How have the Blazers made themselves into a top 5 defense? We explain that it comes down to who is playing at the power forward and center positions and what they are asking their perimeter defenders to do. Have they sacrificed too much on offense to achieve what they are doing on defense? We discuss. The Nuggets are 29th in defensive rating but held the Warriors to 81 points in their matchup this week. What should we make of that? The Pacers might have won more games that some predicted they would on the entire season. We were optimistic about them prior to the season; but how sustainable is this? We still see roster construction issues for them at this point but a second round draft pick could solve a lot of that and it’s a player no one is talking about. Well, we talk about him on this episode. The Hawks are bad. But John Collins has been good. Taurean Prince is showing flashes of growth on offense. Dennis Schroder has been terrible on defense. Can a coach hold a team accountable on defense if their best offensive player is not putting in the effort on the defensive end of the court? We discuss.<br><br>And who got our awards this week? Listen and find out. Greg cheated again but it’s not a terrible take.<br><br>All of this and more.<br><br>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast<br><br>Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba<br><br><br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

They are playing at such a high level we had to see if they are doing things that are sustainable. Are they? Yes! We had to see if they are doing things that if they keep doing them in the postseason will they present a different challenge. Are they? Yes! The Knicks look like a playoff team whether Kristaps Porzingis is playing or not. Are they one of the 6 best teams in the Eastern Conference? Not yet. But we must stay open minded because Kristaps Porzingis is a unique force and we need to see what they can make of that. With an addition of the right player could they enter a really positive chapter in their franchise history? Yes! Are any of the Nets players going to be on the next good Nets team? We discussed it. What do we think of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle after watching them this week?

We continue our in-season analysis. This week we wanted to see why the Jazz were playing so well, especially on offense. Well Utah did not get many wins this week but we came away impressed anyway. Why? Did you know they have the 4th best offensive rating in the NBA since November 15? Now you do. Listen to hear more about that. Are the Thunder as dysfunctional as the look? Yes? Is there hope? For sure. Might they need to make a coaching change? We discussed this. Are the Rockets doing sustainable things? Are they really a top 5 team on both ends of the court? We discuss this. The Bucks are 11-4 since the Bledsoe trade. Have they arrived? Most certainly not, they can get better and the rest of the league should be terrified of that possibility. Have we been too hard on Jason Kidd? We talk about why that might be the case.<br><br>All of this and more.<br><br>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast<br><br>Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba<br><br><br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 44 –&nbsp; Team Updates for 76ers Cavaliers Wizards Celtics<br><br>We continue our in-season analysis. This week we tried to assess whether the 76ers are a viable 50-win team. They had played an interesting schedule and come out largely successful. They are an incredibly productive team but one that still makes a lot of mistakes. What are those mistakes? Are they correctable this season? Might they look to add another veteran player or two to make themselves a more serious playoff team? Whether they do or don’t we think nobody is going to want to encounter them in any round of the playoffs. Why? The Cavaliers are on a double-digit game winning streak. Is everything fine in Cleveland now? The answer is NO, why? The Wizards are trying to maintain contact with the top 4-5 teams in the Eastern Conference while they await the return of John Wall. How are they doing? The criticized roster depth has not been an issue of recent and has actually been award worthy. Is that issue fixed? The answer is NO. Why? And the Celtics are so boringly good now, already? And without Gordon Heyward? They put in the work and get the results. But is this the roster they want to have when April arrives? The answer in NO.

We are adjusting to providing updates on four teams per episode as opposed to eight teams as to get back to providing as much depth as we did in the season previews. We saw the Timberwolves play live four times this week so we go in depth on where they are as a team. Why do we feel they are not currently playing as well as their record would suggest? What is going on with them in the fourth quarter? How is Jimmy Butler making an impact? Per point differential and net rating the Pistons should not be as good as their record suggests either? Why do we feel more encouraged about them? The Magic are off track. Why? And is there anything they can do as to try to get back on track? The Heat are trending in a good direction. Why do we feel like they are heading toward a 5th seed or better in the Eastern Conference?<br><br>All of this and more.<br><br>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast<br><br>Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba&nbsp;<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

We continue our in-season analysis. The Pelicans bigs are dominating the competitions. But the lack of wing players on the roster are holding them back. Can they find a way to get and stay better than .500? The Spurs have gone back to Patty Mills to start at point guard, how does that affect the rotation? How does that help Kyle Anderson and Rudy Gay? The Jazz believe in themselves while most of the rest of us are writing them off after the Gobert injury. Are the Thunder what their record says they are? Or is it the net rating? The Blazers are the second best defensive rating in the league? Is the defense for real? The Rockets are playing really well but are key rotation players playing too much? The Kings are depressing, but as always we hope it gets better. The Mavericks are lining up for a good amount of ping pong balls.

Why are the Bucks just a .500 team even though they have the most efficient offensive player in the league so far this season? What are the Pistons doing that is so fundamentally different from what they were doing last season? Are the Knicks doing sustainable things? Are the Hawks this bad? Are the Bulls doing right by Lauri Markannen? Is Brad Stephens into voodoo? What are the Wizards trying to be? Where did the Heat hunger go? Does it still exist?&nbsp;<br><br>Then in our guest segment with Nat Kitaw we talk about positional gravity. Do big men that can shoot from three point range have more gravity than gaurds?

FCP #040 Western Conference Updates Grizzlies/Thunder/Timberwolves/Clippers/Nuggets/Warriors/Lakers/Suns
6459
We continue our in-season analysis. The Grizzlies look like a serious playoff team so far with impressive wins. Is their play sustainable? The Thunder are 4-4 entering play at Portland but look very good at times. Will they find a way to play together but let their star players still be themselves? The Timberwolves still have serious issues on defense it would seem. Are they going to be OK? The Clippers roster is losing a player to injury week by week. Can Blake handle the workload to keep them afloat without risking injury to himself? The Nuggets had a slow start but looked better in week 2. Will they make the progress they are hoping to make? The Warriors are the Warriors. But there are still interesting things upon which to focus. The Lakers and Suns are exceeding expectations in the win-loss column.

The Pacers now have some impressive wins to feel good about? How good are they? The Nets have already surprised. Are they fundamentally a different team than they were last season? The Cavaliers are definitely not track. How back are things in Cleveland? The Raptors are the Raptors, or are they? The Wizards are attacking their early season schedule, literally.

Can Aaron Gordon take a step forward? Will Elfrid Payton cement his spot as their current and future starting point guard? The Phoenix Suns are now, unfortunately the new model of franchise dysfunction. Is there any hope for Dragan Bender and/or Marquis Chriss? In Sacramento will the new veterans help?

FCO 037 - Chicago Bulls Minnesota Timberwolves Brooklyn Nets Offseason Updates.
5471
<p>We are almost done with our offseason updates. On this week’s episode we cover the Chicago Bulls (Jimmy Butler’s old team) the Minnesota Timberwolves (Jimmy Butler’s new team) and the Brooklyn Nets. What are we looking to see from the group of young guys on the Bulls roster? What do we think the Bulls should do with Lauri Markkanen? Why the presence of Robin Lopez and Cristiano Felicio makes us feel a little encouraged about how Markkanen’s development might go. The Timberwolves add a lot of talent and veteran presence. They gave Andrew Wiggins a big contract and will certainly do the same with Karl-Anthony Towns next year. The West is stacked; what might the Timberwolves be able to accomplish this season. The Brooklyn Nets have been operating with basically no draft picks the last several years but have been creative situationally to add young guys here and there. Will Kenny Atkinson and company help D’Angelo Russell get his head on straight? What could Caris LaVert, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and some of the other young players do to take a step forward this season?

<p>A couple of quick thoughts on news items: the awful news of the Nic Batum and how it could impact the season for the Charlotte Hornets. The we talk above the Cleveland Cavaliers decision to start Kevin Love at center and play Tristan Thompson off of the bench. The we dig into offseason updates for the Atlanta Hawks and the Memphis Grizzlies. Has the Hawks playoff run come to an end? Where does Dennis Schroder need to improve as to position him to become the player the Hawk need him to be? In Memphis they have adjusted the roster to reflect the modern game. We sing the praises of Mike Conley. Do they have enough 3-point shooting? Can the additions of Ben McLemore and Tyreke Evans help?

FCP - 035 Lottery Reform, Russ Contract, Clippers and Rockets Offseason
4140
<p>A couple of quick thoughts on news items: lottery reform, Russell Westbrooks commitment to the OKC Thunder in the form of a massive contract. Then we cover the Los Angeles Clippers and the Houston Rockets offseason updates. These two teams had a summer largely shaped around the transition of Chris Paul from the Clippers to the Rockets. Will Blake Griffin, if healthy, get enough help in the form of the Clippers backcourt players to help him move back to being one of the most elite players in the league? Will Danillo Gallinari help him? Will DeAndre Jordan being able to contribute offensively without an elite PG on the court with him? Will Chris Paul and James Harden be able to help one another reach a level of play in the postseason neither of them have been able to reach thus far in their respective careers? The Rockets lost on the Carmelo sweepstakes. Are they done working on this roster? All of this and more.<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

FCP 034 – Knicks and Mavericks Updates
4260
<p>The New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks each added a young point guard in consecutive picks in the NBA draft. Expectations are higher out of the gate for Dennis Smith Jr than for Frank Ntilikina although he was drafted after for him. Also the organizations could not be in different place. The Mavericks have a ton of stability while Knicks are just looking to emerge in the post Phil Jackson era. What do we expect from each of these teams. How much of his contract value can Tim Hardaway Jr return? What are looking to see from Kristaps Porzingis this season? Are we impressed with the season Harrison Barnes had last season? And which of the young Mavericks players are potential impact players for the franchise down the road? All of this and more.<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

FCP 033 - Sixers Lakers Offseason Updates and guest segment with Nat Kitaw
5300
<p>The Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers are two of the most exciting young teams entering this season. The Sixers are clearly ahead in their process (the word has been ruined) as they’ve been accumulating talent at the top if the draft for a number of years now. The Laker just drafted the player the want to build around but have other interesting young players such as Brandon Ingram and Julius Randle. This episode specifically focuses on what the expectations should be from these teams and their players. The number of wins they can realize this season is far less important than other development objectives. We dive into all of this and more. Also Nat Kitaw joins us to share thought on a recent article he wrote about Kyrie Irving and if he sees the result of his analysis any differently now that Kyrie Irving is with Brad Stephens and the Boston Celtics.<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow Nat on Twitter: @Natsbballstats<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

FCP 032 – Heat Blazers Offseason Updates
4867
<p>The Miami Heat had a tale of two seasons, which one was real? What happened to allow them to turn a 10-31 team into a 31-10 team? They chased Gordon Heyward and came up empty. Then they brought the same team back with the additions of Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo. Is this roster good enough to commit to the next three seasons with this group? The Blazers sneaked into the playoffs with a .500 record. They traded Allen Crabbe and brought make the same team also apart from their additions in the draft Zach Collins and Caleb Swanigan. Is there any hope they can be a better team than they were last season?</p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast</p> <p>Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba</p><br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

FCP 031 – Wizards Nuggets Offseason Updates
4439
<p>The Washington Wizards rose in the Eastern Conference in the 2016-17 season but the two teams that finished in the top two seeds, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics, and faced off in the Eastern Conference Finals made a trade, that we discussed on last week’s episode, that shifts the near term and longer-term power structure in the conference. Where does that leave the Wizards? They are bringing back the same core with another modest attempt to add bench depth, will it move the needle in one direction or the other? Also, how does the backcourt of John Wall and Bradley Beal rank with the other great backcourts in the league. The Denver Nuggets finally landed their marquee free agent Paul Millsap, the roster around him and the emerging Nikola Jokic is deep. But does the roster construction as it stands today make sense from a fit perspective? There is a gap at the wing, is there a way for the Nuggets to use the resources they currently have to address it? Glen Willis and Greg Willis cover all of this and more<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba</p> <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

FCP 030 - Celtics Cavaliers Trade and Offseason Updates
3715
<p>The Cavaliers and Celtics made a trade that even three months ago would have been unthinkable. Who won the trade? OK we really don’t care. What’s important is this: how is this trade going to work out for each of the teams? The Celtics finally traded a draft asset, will Kyrie buy into what Brad Stevens will ask him to do on offense? Thomas received 94 voters for All-NBA team, Kyrie received just 14. Is Thomas really that much better than Kyrie? The Cavs have nicely set up for flexibility next summer when Lebron will have all the power. But have they improved themselves at all for a potential Finals match up with the Warriors? Are the Celtics better or worse than they were one year ago? How might Gordon Heyward and Al Horford feel about these changes?

FCP 029 - Tampering Accusations plus Warriors Pistons Offseason
5480
<p>In this episode host Glen Willis is joined by Greg Willis. They discuss the news of the tampering accusation against the Lakers and why this charge might be different from any other tampering charge in the history of the NBA. They provide a review of the offseason transactions and look ahead to the 2017-2018 season for the Golden State Warriors and Detroit Pistons. The Warriors somehow got better this offseason even though they had to pay Steph Curry and Kevin Durant. They are best and most popular sports team in the world, probably. So instead of digging Glen and Greg draft an 8-man rotation from across the league that they think would best challenge the Warriors; there are some rules that prevent just stacking a team. Is there any hope for the Pistons this season in an entirely underwhelming Eastern Conference? How good is Avery Bradley? How is going to help? Who is the best basketball player on the Pistons roster?  <span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis</p> <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

5437
<p>In this episode host Glen Willis is joined by Greg Willis. They provide a review of the offseason transactions and look ahead to the 2017-2018 season for the Toronto Raptors and San Antonio Spurs. The Raptors lost four key veteran players. Are the young players ready to step in and handle consistent rotation minutes and the responsibilities that come with them? Will Kyle Lowry and Demar DeRozan get enough help? They have less depth but are playing in a weakened Eastern Conference. Will they be able to prioritize a 7-8 player rotation that will set them up for more success in the postseason? The Spurs are the Spurs. How will Pop handle the absence of Tony Parker at the point guard position? The LaMarcus Aldridge experience has been bumpy. Will it be better this season? How close is Kawhi Leonard to be the single best player in the league? All of this and more on the outlook for the 2017-18 season for the Raptors and Spurs.<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis</p> <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

How bad are the Pacers going to be in their first season in the post Paul George era? Is Victor Oladipo as bad as everyone else is saying? Hint: we don’t think so. Is the Myles Turner hype train out of control? In Oklahoma City is Russell Westbrook going to dial it back a notch with Paul George on his team? Can he dial it back? The science is obvious, we he accept it? Also, would you rather have Myles Turner or Steven Adams over the next 5 seasons?<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis</p> <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

What does Giannis Antentokounmpo need to do to become a real MVP candidate. How much of a role should Than Maker have during his second professional season? Also Greg is pretty excited about this Pelicans team? How can they be over the course of a full season with Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins in the front court? Is Rajon Rando going to help them? And why it makes so much sense for them to add Jason Terry.<span data-ccp-props= "{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p> <p>Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis</p> <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.
