1 Comment

Here is the the latest edition of the NBC’s ProBasketballTalk Podcast with myself  and Eyton Shander of NBC Sports Radio talking about the latest big issues in the NBA.

Which means a lot of Kobe Bryant — first, when he’s going to get back on the court (think early December) plus the new contract and what that means for the Lakers, besides just the Kobe farewell tour.

Then we talk the Derrick Rose injury and what it all means for the Bulls going forward — is it time to trade Luol Deng?

We also talk Marc Gasol and Andre Iguodala injuries, plus how OKC fans can knock down half courters with the best of them.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
