The NBA Playoffs begin today, and to celebrate the big event my cousin Gianni Zambito and I conducted a massive two-part NBA Playoff Preview Podcast.
Part 1: We discuss who should win the NBA MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, Coach of the Year and other end of season awards. Then, we discuss the Eastern Conference 1st Round match-ups. Which team poses the biggest threat to LeBron James’ return to the NBA Finals? Are the Atlanta Hawks being underrated? Is there any team less entertaining than the Brooklyn Nets?
Part 2: We dive in Western Conference 1st Round previews and discuss how close Anthony Davis is to being the best player in the NBA. Are the Grizzlies and Blazers both too banged up to make a legitimate postseason run? Is this the Spurs last hurrah, and are San Antonio and Golden State locks for the Western Conference Finals?
Check it out! We’ll be back every week to discuss the biggest postseason narratives.
Looking for two NBA fans talking about the upcoming NBA season for an absurd amount of time?
Hey, you’ve come to the right place! If you’ve got some time to call, be sure to check out the two-part NBA Season Preview Podcast that my cousin Gianni Zambito and I conducted last weekend. In the two parts we predict every teams record for the upcoming season and tackle all of the major storylines. Can the San Antonio Spurs repeat? What will the Cleveland Cavaliers look like? Will the Philadelphia 76ers set the NBA record for most losses in a season? How many shots will Russell Westbrook attempt per game while Kevin Durant is out? Is Anthony Davis due for another breakout season? Will the Phoenix Suns regress? How bad will the Indiana Pacers offense be?
So pour yourself a glass of wine–or just do what I’d do and grab a beer out of the fridge–and get comfortable. And definitely don’t feel obligated to listen to all of it at once. Take a listen for a while, mark your spot, come back later. Even we got a little woozy towards the end.
Part One (Eastern Conference)
Part Two (Western Conference)
The NBA Finals begin tonight and since it’s such a significant matchup I figured one podcast to preview Heat/Spurs wasn’t enough. On Tuesday night podcast veteran Paul Clark joined The Captain’s Corner to discuss who the biggest breakout star of the postseason has been, whether Kevin Durant’s performance during the playoffs changed our perceptions of him, how injuries have impacted the postseason results, and who will win the Finals.
On Wednesday night, my cousin Gianni Zambito made his Captain’s Corner debut and offered his insight on what it’s like to be a lifelong fan of Tim Duncan. We break down Tim Duncan’s career, Tony Parker’s ascension, the differences and similarities of our respective favorite players, and make our Finals picks.
