In this episode, Sam is joined by Jon Krawczynski and Danny Leroux to break down NBA defensive standouts. On Wednesday, Krawczynski and Josh Robbins published their anonymous coaches poll of who should make the All-NBA defensive team. What did the coaches look for in their conversations with Jon? What were the trends? Did anything surprise


A two-part episode. First, I chat with Brian Snow of 247Sports about Emoni Bates and his decision to commit to Michigan State. How good is Bates? Is he a superstar in waiting? What does this mean for Michigan State? And what do you need to know about when he can enter the NBA? Then, Seth


Dieter Kurtenbach is back in this episode of the Game Theory Podcast, where we break down a few different topics about the Bubble, about labor strife in baseball, and most importantly: what are we most looking forward to watching when the NBA returns? 


I chatted with Tony Jones from The Athletic, and we chatted about the Kyrie meeting, the NBA Bubble and restart, and the 2020 NBA Draft. 


I’ve wanted to get Rashad Phillips on the podcast to chat for a while, so I got on the phone with him today to chat about some of the guards in the 2020 NBA Draft. We disagree a lot! We both like LaMelo Ball, but have very different evaluations on RJ Hampton. We like Grant


In this episode, I chatted with former NBA agent Matt Babcock from over at Babcock Hoops. We chatted about the top of this draft class, the point guard group, the big men, the weakness of the wing class, and some of the guys you would pound the table for in this class in the second


In this episode, I chat with Dieter Kurtenbach. First, we discuss the G League’s initiative to pay high school prospects to turn pro. Why I like the idea of it, but am a bit skeptical going forward.  Second, we chat about The Last Dance, and how great it is while also not bringing anything new


In this episode, current senior writer at The Athletic and former Memphis Grizzlies executive John Hollinger and I break down the 2020 NBA Draft. We run through what we look for in prospects, the pre-draft process’s value, and break down a lot of the highest profile prospects in the 2020 draft. 


In this episode, actual basketball content! We break down the NBA Awards we would vote for if the season ends today (and it looks like it might). MVP, All-NBA, DPOY, all the good stuff. But we open on a couple of things, including a hilarious scuttled Knicks-Hornets deal, and the sham that is the NCAA’s


In this episode, Dieter Kurtenbach joins. We went heavy on the US response to the coronavirus epidemic for the first 21 minutes. If you’re not interested in listening to complaints about the federal government’s response to COVID-19, then skip to the 21:00 mark.  Then, we chat about Josh Harris and the 76ers trying to convince


In this episode, Chris Stone from The Sporting News joins us to chat about Kansas, its national title banner, and how I want them to do it.  Then, we break down the NBA Draft and Chris and I run through a lot of the prospects. 


In this episode, Dieter joins and we talk for some time about coronavirus, the bummer that is the sports world, and what you can watch in the meantime without sports. Oh, and some coaching carousel stuff. 


In this episode, Dieter Kurtenbach joins to chat about the Houston Rockets being super fun and enjoyable; the Bulls being a total mess; and Collin Sexton! Collin Sexton is a legitimately good scorer! Oh, and I made Dieter talk with me about the Democratic Primary. 


Because it doesn’t seem like anyone is talking enough about how the Bucks are one of the literal best teams in NBA history through 58 games, I had The Athletic’s Eric Nehm on to break down how exceptional this team is. Why they’re so good, and why we should believe in them come title time. 


The 76ers remain the most fascinating team in the league to me, so I decided to make Derek Bodner come on and chat about it. He’s the most plugged-in person in the market, so if he can’t figure it out, no one can, right? We leave no stone unturned, chatting about the Al Horford fit,
