In this episode, Sam Vecenie has his weekly podcast with Cole Zwicker, where the two of them chat about some of the news that’s happened in the NBA in recent days. First, they break down the sadness that is the Kristaps Porzingis left ACL tear. Why does he keep getting left-side injuries? How good has he become? And what do the Knicks do now that he’s hurt? Also, they chat about the Willy Hernangomez trade and why that happened.
Next, they chat about the Lou Williams extension. Why did Lou undersell his marketplace value? Should have have gone to the market instead of extending? Also, why can’t Williams now be traded?
Then, they do a quick run-through each of the seven best teams in the NBA as Deadline Day approaches. What should the Warriors, Rockets, Celtics, Raptors, Spurs, Timberwolves, and Cavaliers do? They also come up with an interesting Brooklyn/Boston deal that might solve some of their issues.
Finally, they break down Jaren Jackson Jr. as an NBA Draft prospect. Why is a player averaging 11 points and six rebounds considered a potential top-five pick. Well, it has to do with versatility and skill set.
