-Stephen Curry
-Russell Westbrook
-Damian Lillard

-Kyle Lowry (And/Or James Harden, assuming he’s a PG)

“The reason why he’s not talked about that way is that the Wizards have continually disappointed people” – Shelburne

“It’s kind of a strange thing for Rudy to have to answer because he got traded from Toronto. One place showed you the door and another place showed him the love” – Shelburne

“He feels good about the organization. But he wasn’t taking a shot at Kawhi. It was a shot at everybody else” – Haynes

Player most likely to become first-time all-star?
Part of ESPN’s Summer Forecast

“Off the grid: Zach LaVine in Chicago” – Haynes

“Ben Simmons. He should have been an all-star last season, but he just came on a little bit too late” – Shelburne

“The All-Star format should be revamped to the top 24 all-stars, regardless of conference. That way, we assure that the best are represented in the all-star game” – Haynes

Rockets depth.JPG

“Over” – Haynes

“This is a sizeable decline. 10.5 games off of what they did last year?” – Shelburne


Sixers draft.JPG

“Just about right, might be even a little bit high for them” – Shelburne

“I’m going with the under, slightly” – Haynes


Thunder wins.JPG

“Just about right. But I would go over slightly. I’m still not sold on the pieces there” – Haynes

“That’s the right number to put them at because they underachieved. They should just be better” – Shelburne


Jazz defense.JPG

“Under. This is the year where we find out if the Jazz are the new Spurs because they have that kind of system and players” – Shelburne

“Under. I do think they’re still a playoff team” – Haynes


Bulls Depth.JPG

“This is an easy over” – Hubbarth

“That’s pretty low for the Bulls” – Shelburne

“The Chicago Bulls can be the next coming of the Boston Celtics. That squad from top to bottom is promising” – Haynes

ESPN Draft Expert, Jonathan Givony joined the show!

NBA Prospect Brian Bowen to play in Australia
Ineligible for 2018-19 NCAA season; Will play for the Sydney Kings
Started a new initiative called ‘The Next Stars’ program

Australia viable alternative for one-and-done prospects?

“They’re really making an aggressive play here at elite high school players and make this a pathway. A lot of people are fed up right now with college basketball” – Givony

“I think it’s good. It’s the right level. It’s not the strongest league, it’s not the Euroleague, or ACB” – Givony on the development in Australia

Ever seen a prospect like Zion Williamson?
Fact: Has a 6’10” wingspan!


“In my 15 years, I have never seen a player like him who is so strong and athletic. The closest comparison is Charles Barkley” – Givony

“The thing with Zion is that he’s that big and another guy I would put in this category would be LeBron James” – Shelburne

“He’s a very good passer and a great basketball IQ. He’s a lot more than a highlight reel” – Givony

Insight on Arenas-Crittenton showdown?
Card game: Bourré



“It is UNO. It’s a combination of UNO, poker, spades and the final rap battle from 8 Mile. It’s all about privado. It’s all about flexing on your opponent. Majority of it is luck. But you just do it to clown the people that you’re playing against” – Perez

“This is an X-Files NBA story” – Perez

“It develops into the infamous incident” – Perez
2009 locker room confrontation with Javaris Crittenton
