Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 103 – Offseason Updates for Lakers Clippers Warriors

10/20/2018
More
The NBA season is here. And we need to complete our offseason updates. We had been holding out on the New York and LA teams to see if Jimmy Butler’s situation would impact a roster. In this episode we cover the LA teams. What to make of the veteran players the Lakers signed to one year deals? The plan on any Lebron team is to surround him with shooters. Is the roster constructed for that? What are we looking to see from Ingram, Lonzo, Kuzma and Hart? The Clippers look to be trying to change...

The NBA season is here. And we need to complete our offseason updates. We’ve been holding out on the New York and LA teams to see if Jimmy Butler’s situation would impact a roster. In this episode we cover the New York teams. What should the objectives be for the Knicks and Nets this season. Some are the same; some are different. And we’ve been waiting to see as much Kawhi Leonard as we could. And well that was not encouraging. But the Raptors might have the deepest roster in the league. And...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 101 – Offseason Updates for Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz

10/11/2018
More
The Hawks are leaning all the way in to their rebuild and have a new head coach that helped with the process in Philadelphia. They took some risk by traded back as to pass on Luca Doncic to acquire Trae Young. Is this going to work out for them? What are we looking to see from John Collins in his second year? What about Taurean Prince in his third year? Why are we so intrigued by the acquisition of Alex Len? The Jazz exceeded all expectations last season. But in the end they were a league...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 100 – Offseason Updates for Orlando Magic and Sacramento Kings

10/10/2018
More
We focus on two of the younger teams in the league on this episode. What is Aaron Gordon? What is holding him back from being a player that can bring a real impact on a game? We he and Bamba and Isaac be a good fit? Why is Khem Birch a mysteriously important part of the roster? In Sacramento last season we saw maybe the most clever tank jobs of all time. Why do we say that? Have a listen. We liked what we saw from Hield and Bogdonovic last season and they added Yogi Ferrell and Ben...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 99 – Offseason Updates for Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets

9/25/2018
More
This week we cover two teams that lost in respective game 7 conference finals. Boston really didn’t add anyone, but Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving will return. Kyrie’s pending unrestricted free agency at the end of this season might be the most intriguing in the league. We talk about how Isaiah Thomas reach near-MVP level production during his second full season under Brad Stephens. Will Kyrie have his best NBA season to date? How will Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum deal the return of two...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 98 – Offseason Updates for Charlotte Hornets and Dallas Mavericks.

9/21/2018
More
This week we cover two teams who will presumably be trying to improve on results from last season. The Hornets have a new General Manager and new head coach. But they are largely running back the same group apart from the switch from Dwight Howard to Bismack Biyombo. Kemba Walker will be a free agent next summer. Is there an obviously correct path for them this season? No, but we discuss. The Mavericks finally secured DeAndre Jordan and they are largely running the same group back after...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 97 – Offseason Updates for Cleveland Cavaliers and San Antonio Spurs.

9/20/2018
More
This week we cover the two teams that experienced the greatest amount of change and the top of their roster. What will the Cavaliers be in the second post-Lebron era? Kevin Love was the focal point of a pretty impressive offensive team in Minnesota in his mid-20s. How much of that Kevin Love is left? Do we know anything about have good of a head coach Tyrron Lue is? Are any of the young players on the roster capable of being a difference maker? All of a sudden in San Antonio it’s the...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 96 – Offseason updates for Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves

9/10/2018
More
We don’t think the Heat front office is very excited about running this group back despite the fact that to a player there seems to be broad buy in to the Heat culture. Should the Hassan Whiteside experience be over? Or should Whiteside become a lower priority? What should Miami do with the multitude of guards they have on the roster? What should the plan be for this season regarding Justice Winslow? The Timberwolves made the playoffs last season for the first time in an eternity, but just...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 95 – Offseason updates for Washington Wizards and Oklahoma City Thunder

9/3/2018
More
Dwight Howard has replaced Marcin Gortat as the starting center in Washington. Is that going to make them a better team? We saw more from Bradley Beal last season as John Wall missed half of the regular season. He made his first All-Star team. Will Scott Brooks stagger Wall and Beal’s time on the court this season? That has not been the plan in previous seasons. Should that be the plan? Oklahoma City was able to convince Paul George to return. They’ve been a first round out in the last two...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 94 – Offseason Updates for Indiana Pacers and New Orleans Pelicans.

8/28/2018
More
We talk about a couple of surprise teams from last season. Both teams won 48 games and made some noise in the postseason. The Pacers pushed the Cavaliers as hard in the postseason as any team in the Eastern Conference. Victor Oladipo stepped up and had an all-NBA season and was awarded as the league’s most improved player. They are bringing back largely the same roster with the important addition of Tyreke Evans. What are the areas in which they need to demonstrate improvement? The...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 93 – Offseason Updates for Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies

8/21/2018
More
Detroit made bold moves last season but it did not move the needle for them. Stan Van Gundy is out and Dwayne Casey is in. Also in is a new front office leadership. The Pistons seem to be gearing up for a serious season but it’s hard to know invested the new leadership is in this roster. They had a hard time filling up a brand new arena last season, so that seems to be at least somewhat a part of the objective this season. We tackle the big questions. The Grizzlies are going to try to chase...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 92 – Offseason Updates for Chicago Bulls and Phoenix Suns

8/14/2018
More
The Bulls have done well in the draft the last two seasons and have some exciting young talent on the team. They also invested money in Zach Lavine and Jabari Parker. But important decision loom with a number of other players on the roster. Also, who is going to play point guard? The Suns invested heavily in Devon Booker and brought in a new coach. They also had the number one overall pick in the draft. What are we watching for from the Suns this season? All of this and more. Follow Dane on...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 91 – Offseason Updates for Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets

8/6/2018
More
Philadelphia may have played this offseason conservatively while working through a search for a new GM. But they have very possibly the best young core group of players as any team in the league. They exceed expectations last season by a good measure. Is there room for them to have a better season than they did last season? The Denver Nuggets have an exciting young core as well and perhaps underperformed last season. They continue to be dysfunctional on the defensive end of the court. So...

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 90 – Offseason Updates for Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers

8/1/2018
More
The Bucks added a legitimate coach after finally ending the Jason Kidd experiment. The roster is largely the same apart from a few veterans to help man the power forward and center positions. Can they challenge the big three of Boston, Toronto and Philadelphia? How might the coaching change impact the play of Giannis? Portland largely ran it back apart from their most important front court player off of the bench and their most important back court player off of the bench. Are the young guys...

We normally focus on depth. But in this episode we challenge ourselves to hit on the all of the restricted free agents.

We don’t cover every pick but do contrast some interest players drafted in stretches. We cover the mid to late lottery guards (Collin Sexton, Kevin Knox, Shai Gilgus-Alexander and Jerome Robinson). We know we cheated a bit by including Know in there but it seemed appropriate to contrast those players. We cover post lottery wings (Troy Brown, Zaire Smith, Donte DiVicenzo, Lonnie Walker, Kevin Huerter and Josh Okogie). We briefly discuss how weirdly different the three bigs taken late in the...

6/19/2018

We are not year round draftniks so we are not going to try to provide analysis on all of the draft prospects. There are many other content providers that we value, as we are sure that you do, that are providing excellent, comprehensive analysis on the 2018 NBA draft class at large. But we did take some time to provide our evaluations on some of the players that seem to be up for some prospects that are moving up and down mocks and big boards since the NBA draft combine. On this episode we...
