This was an alright pod. Sad it died.

They don’t know the Jazz

By Vanilla Thunder Man - Sep 23 2019

I listened to get a national perspective on the Jazz. Wow. They literally don’t know this team. They’ve probably never watched a game. This was as vanilla as it could be in some sections and pretty terrible (wrong facts, false assumptions, lack of understanding) in others. I appreciate the effort to hit all the teams, but it’s probably a waste of everyone’s time — not to mention a detractor from your brand — if you don’t actually try to find out something that’s actually going on with a team.

Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 47 –  Team Updates for Raptors, Knicks, Nets, LakersWe continue our in-season analysis. This week we had to watch the Raptors. They are playing at such a high level we had to see if they are doing things that are sustainable. Are they? Yes! We had to see if they are doing things that if they keep doing them in the postseason will they present a different challenge. Are they? Yes! The Knicks look like a playoff team whether Kristaps Porzingis is playing or not. Are they one of the 6 best teams in the Eastern Conference? Not yet. But we must stay open minded because Kristaps Porzingis is a unique force and we need to see what they can make of that. With an addition of the right player could they enter a really positive chapter in their franchise history? Yes! Are any of the Nets players going to be on the next good Nets team? We discussed it. What do we think of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle after watching them this week?

Podcast cover

Which teams do we think will be most aggressive in the trade market this week? How seriously should we take the Celtics in terms of their postseason potential? The Knicks are struggling to win games at the pace they were last month. What is going in with them? What should they be evaluating right now? We picked a bad week to watch the Magic because Aaron Gordon did not play. What were are observations? This season in Orlando is still mostly about Aaaron Gordon, but we enjoyed watching some of their other players this week. The Lakers had an impressive win in OKC on Sunday. They seem to be heading towards a crossroads offseason this summer. How did what we saw this week inform us about what they might evaluating heading towards the summer?

Podcast cover
Read more
We continue our in-season analysis. This week we wanted to see why the Jazz were playing so well, especially on offense. Well Utah did not get many wins this week but we came away impressed anyway. Why? Did you know they have the 4th best offensive rating in the NBA since November 15? Now you do. Listen to hear more about that. Are the Thunder as dysfunctional as the look? Yes? Is there hope? For sure. Might they need to make a coaching change? We discussed this. Are the Rockets doing sustainable things? Are they really a top 5 team on both ends of the court? We discuss this. The Bucks are 11-4 since the Bledsoe trade. Have they arrived? Most certainly not, they can get better and the rest of the league should be terrified of that possibility. Have we been too hard on Jason Kidd? We talk about why that might be the case.All of this and more.Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcastFollow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnbaLearn more about your ad choices.

Rank #5: FCO 037 - Chicago Bulls Minnesota Timberwolves Brooklyn Nets Offseason Updates.

Podcast cover
Read more
We are almost done with our offseason updates. On this week’s episode we cover the Chicago Bulls (Jimmy Butler’s old team) the Minnesota Timberwolves (Jimmy Butler’s new team) and the Brooklyn Nets. What are we looking to see from the group of young guys on the Bulls roster? What do we think the Bulls should do with Lauri Markkanen? Why the presence of Robin Lopez and Cristiano Felicio makes us feel a little encouraged about how Markkanen’s development might go. The Timberwolves add a lot of talent and veteran presence. They gave Andrew Wiggins a big contract and will certainly do the same with Karl-Anthony Towns next year. The West is stacked; what might the Timberwolves be able to accomplish this season. The Brooklyn Nets have been operating with basically no draft picks the last several years but have been creative situationally to add young guys here and there. Will Kenny Atkinson and company help D’Angelo Russell get his head on straight? What could Caris LaVert, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and some of the other young players do to take a step forward this season? All of this and more in episode 37 of the Full Court Press NBA podcasr.  Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast  Follow our guest on Twitter: @jgsiegel  Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba  Learn more about your ad choices.

Podcast cover

We continue our in-season analysis. We share thoughts on the Eric Bledsoe trade and what might happen with Greg Monroe. We hand out our weekly awards and then get into team by team analysis. Why are the Bucks just a .500 team even though they have the most efficient offensive player in the league so far this season? What are the Pistons doing that is so fundamentally different from what they were doing last season? Are the Knicks doing sustainable things? Are the Hawks this bad? Are the Bulls doing right by Lauri Markannen? Is Brad Stephens into voodoo? What are the Wizards trying to be? Where did the Heat hunger go? Does it still exist? Then in our guest segment with Nat Kitaw we talk about positional gravity. Do big men that can shoot from three point range have more gravity than gaurds? The what to make of the Sixers roster decision as the date on which a Robert Covington renegotiation and extension can happen nears? All of this and more. Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast Follow our guest on Twitter: @Natsbballstats Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba Read more at http://fullcourtpress.libsyn.com/podcast/fcp-041-eastern-conference-updates-and-guest-nat-kitaw-bucks-pistons-knicks-hawks-bulls-celtics-wizards-heat#EjWXRlZaCvoi82dU.99Learn more about your ad choices.

Rank #7: FCP 034 – Knicks and Mavericks Updates

Podcast cover
Read more
The New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks each added a young point guard in consecutive picks in the NBA draft. Expectations are higher out of the gate for Dennis Smith Jr than for Frank Ntilikina although he was drafted after for him. Also the organizations could not be in different place. The Mavericks have a ton of stability while Knicks are just looking to emerge in the post Phil Jackson era. What do we expect from each of these teams. How much of his contract value can Tim Hardaway Jr return? What are looking to see from Kristaps Porzingis this season? Are we impressed with the season Harrison Barnes had last season? And which of the young Mavericks players are potential impact players for the franchise down the road?

Rank #8: FCP 033 - Sixers Lakers Offseason Updates and guest segment with Nat Kitaw

Podcast cover
Read more
The Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers are two of the most exciting young teams entering this season. The Sixers are clearly ahead in their process (the word has been ruined) as they’ve been accumulating talent at the top if the draft for a number of years now. The Laker just drafted the player the want to build around but have other interesting young players such as Brandon Ingram and Julius Randle. This episode specifically focuses on what the expectations should be from these teams and their players. The number of wins they can realize this season is far less important than other development objectives. We dive into all of this and more. Also Nat Kitaw joins us to share thought on a recent article he wrote about Kyrie Irving and if he sees the result of his analysis any differently now that Kyrie Irving is with Brad Stephens and the Boston Celtics.  Follow us on Twitter: @willis_glen / @LawtonWillis / @presspodcast  Follow Nat on Twitter: @Natsbballstats  Follow us on FaceBook: @fullcourtpressnba  Learn more about your ad choices.

The Celtics seem to have found their footing. The have gotten right on offense against a mostly easy stretch in their schedule. There are reasons to feel encouraged about their play. What are they? The Cavaliers picked up a few wins prior to watching them this week. They are still a mess on defense. What observations did we have about their improvement on offense? The Timberwolves are officially in the post-Butler era. What does the new rotation look like? Will they play with confidence in close games? The Thunder are as good as any team in the NBA on defense but they are dead last in three-point shooting. Is that going to be good enough?All of this and more.Follow us on twitter: @presspodcast @willis_glen @LawtonWillis Follow Dane: @DaneMooreNBALearn more about your ad choices.

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 all-stars to the lineup? The Rockets undid much of what helped them play elite defense last season while also being a historically great offense.

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.

Rank #20: Full Court Press NBA Podcast Episode 91 – Offseason Updates for Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets

Podcast cover
Read 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 they gave a big contract to Will Barton and signed Isaiah Thomas to a contract to be a bench scorer. Will that move the needle for this team at all? All of this and more.
