Episode 2 is here! The legendary Bob Ryan and acclaimed basketball insider, Jeff Goodman are back, as promised.
The journalists sip some coffee and Sambucca at The Legacy Club of Boston while they casually review each position for the Boston Celtics, entering the 2019-20 regular season.
Mr. Ryan teases listeners with his threats of low post dominance in the way of a 70 year old hook shot, leaning 1-foot jumper and an up & under that can rival Tim Duncan or Kevin McHale.
Of course, it wouldn’t be an off-season Celtics’ topic podcast episode without mention of Kyrie Irving. Ryan gives fair (harsh) warning to the Brooklyn Nets about Kyrie Irving while Goodman settles into his expert zone by grading each Celtics’ rookie based on his coverage of their college careers.
Yes, Tacko Fall does sneak into the discussion.
