In this episode, Sam Vecenie chats with good friend of the program Cole Zwicker in a super-sized episode featuring a variety of topics. First, the two of them discuss Markelle Fultz’s return to action with the 76ers, and what he looked like on Monday night against Denver in dropping a solid 10-point, eight-assist, four-rebound night versus only one turnover.

Then, they chat about the NBA injuries that could end up shaping the course of the regular season. What do they make of the Warriors being down a few key guys right now, including Stephen Curry for the start of the playoffs? What about the Celtics, who could be missing Kyrie Irving (and Marcus Smart) for that first round series, too? What would the Spurs look like with Kawhi if he was to return?

Finally, they go over some of the more interesting NBA Draft decisions that have been made, and some of the more interesting NBA Draft performances of the NCAA Tournament. Those include Zhaire Smith, Daniel Gafford, Kevin Knox, Jevon Carter, Robert Williams, Moe Wagner, Devonte Graham, Malik Newman, and many more in a rapid-fire session.
