In this episode, Sam Vecenie chats with Cole Zwicker and talks goes in-depth on the first weekend of the NBA Playoffs, breaking down the first game of each series. Here’s the order: Utah-OKC, Milwaukee-Boston, New Orleans-Blazers, Pacers-Cavs, Philly-Miami, Wizards–Raptors, Minnesota-Houston, Golden State-San Antonio.
Then, they chat about lessons teams can learn from the playoffs in terms of the NBA Draft. Should boards be altered based on the fact that big men are being played off the court regularly in these playoffs, given that five of most people’s top-10 are true bigs? What can you learn about drafting wings from these playoffs? Is that now the premium NBA position?
Finally, Cole checks in from Nike Hoop Summit, where he got a chance to scout some of the best high school players in the country, including R.J. Barrett, Cam Reddish, Bol Bol, Quentin Grimes, and more.
