In this episode, I finish breaking down the Northwest Division with Fred Katz of the Norman Transcript. We chat about the Nuggets, Jazz and Blazers, breaking down all of their offseason moves and why I'm relatively bullish on all of them.

In this episode, I chat with Pete Philo. Pete is a former NBA Scouting Director for the Timberwolves and Pacers, as well as a scout for the Mavericks. Currently, he runs TPG Sports Group, which runs Virtual Scout School, Pro Scout School, and Sports Tank.

We chat about how he got into the scouting industry, then get into some scouting stories. What is the most important part of scouting? How does one go about gathering scouting information overseas? What does he remember about the time he spent with Michael Beasley? What was it like to work for David Kahn? What does he consider to be his biggest hits and misses? How did the Mavericks end up taking Pavel Podkolzine? Then, we delve into what Pete's doing now, and what he does with Scout School.

In this episode, Fred Katz and I sought out to preview the Northwest Division. We went a bit long. Well, we spoke for about two hours. So instead of that being one episode, we broke it out into two episodes, with the first part being a breakdown of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Minnesota Timberwolves. Next episode, which will be released on Friday, we'll break down Denver, Utah, and Portland.

In this episode, I answer you -- the readers! -- questions. Topics include five breakout candidates in the NBA, my biggest draft hits/misses over the last five years, what I think of Indiana hoops, whether or not I would trade the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 pick for certain NBA stars, whether or not Sacramento has the goods to get that pick, and whether or not I would deal it for Boogie Cousins.

In the second half, I chat about if the seniors with first round NBA Draft potential, what my thoughts on Cam Reddish heading to Duke, what Zion Williamson is, St. John's hoops, Virginia hoops, how Lauri Markkanen has played in Eurobasket, most overrated/underrated CBB players, and finally on whether or not a college hoops team can become a blue blood?
