In this episode, I chat with Danny Leroux about how the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement affects college basketball. Will the one-and-done rule eventually change? Does the new D-League structure affect college hoops? Will the extra roster spots and how they're used affect the NBA Draft? We also chatted quickly about how irrational actors in the NBA make it incredibly difficult to predict. A wide variety of topics are discussed here with Danny, who you can follow over at @DannyLeroux on Twitter.
