In this episode, I chat with Michael Pina from Vice Sports about two different things. First, we talk about the Allen Crabbe trade to Brooklyn, a match over a year in the making. Then we play a game discussing which player we would rather have. As in, would you rather start a team with Giannis Antetokounmpo or Kawhi Leonard? With Damian Lillard or Kyrie Irving? Would you rather have Chris Paul or John Wall this year? Kristaps Porzingis or Nikola Jokic? All those and more.

In this episode, I chat with Adi Joseph of USA Today about the Kyrie Irving trade request that shocked the basketball world? We talk about the ramifications of this trade request, then go through what the Cavaliers should do. Finally, we run through every team and decide if we think that team makes sense for the Cavaliers to consider a deal with.

In this episode, I answer all of your questions from earlier on Thursday. But before we get into that, I chat with Reags from over at Barstool about two important topics. The first: say you are a head coach of a Division I program and have access to any three coaches in the country to be your assistants. Who would you pick and why?

Then, Reags and I share our five favorite basketball movies ever (non-documentary edition), and discuss how basketball has really gotten the short end of the stick over the years in Hollywood by breaking down our favorite movies from other sports. 

Finally, we answer your questions. Lot of talk about the Big East. Do we think Derrick Rose is a fit in Cleveland (or anywhere)? How does Markelle Fultz rank within the last decade of prospects? Who is the most underrated college basketball player at the low/mid/high-major levels? All that and more in this episode.

In this episode, I'm joined by Cole Zwicker who helps me break down all of the action at Summer League in Las Vegas. What players stood out in Vegas? What players have struggled? We break down Lonzo Ball, Markelle Fultz, Jayson Tatum, Josh Jackson, Dennis Smith, Donovan Mitchell, John Collins, and more.

Then, we delve deep into the 2016 NBA Draftees, and discuss Brandon Ingram, Kris Dunn, Marquese Chriss, and others. We also chat about some of the undrafted players who are interesting, and some of the older guys in attendance. Finally, we give out some awards, including best rookie, best second year player, and some of the more disappointing guys in attendance.

In this episode, I chat all things Gordon Hayward with both the Utah and Boston sides of the spectrum. First, I chat with Jay King from over at MassLive.com about how the Hayward decision went down from the Boston side. How does Hayward fit on the team? How will they get the cap space to sign him? 

Then, I chat with Tony Jones about reporting on the Hayward choice. What did his day look like on Tuesday? Does he believe that Hayward wavered throughout the day Tuesday? Where does this leave Utah? Can they still make a playoff run next year?

First, we chat quickly about Gordon Hayward (before my Friday mega pod on him alone), then talk Paul Millsap, Kyle Lowry/Toronto, George Hill/Sacramento, Danilo Gallinari, Dion Waiters, how Kevin Durant can't win in free agency, and some of the other low-level deals that have occurred in the previous three days.

In this episode, I chat with Dieter Kurtenbach about all of the happenings of free agency on Day One. First though, we chat about the Paul George trade (did the Celtics mess up? Is this a Pacers misevaluation?). Then, we chat about the big deals in free agency. What do we make of the Blake Griffin max? How is Jrue Holiday's deal going to play out? Is the J.J. Redick signing our favorite? What do we make of some of the lower level signings?
