Basketball Podcast: Dirk Nowitzki's knee, Southeast Division preview and bad egg salad

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

On today's podcast, I'm joined by Senior Blogger Matt Moore and we go over Dirk Nowitzki's surgery. How much does it affect the Mavericks? Which teams in the West will benefit from him missing the first month or so? How quickly can he come back?

We also look at the Southeast Division in the NBA and try to figure out if the Charlotte Bobcats or the Orlando Magic are the worst, old egg salad. Can the Washington Wizards find guys who will step up and will it matter with John Wall's injury?

How good can the Atlanta Hawks be? We look at how they've transitioned their franchise away from the Iso Joe era and where they might be headed. Is Jeff Teague enough to power them through and can Josh Smith fix his offensive game?

We also might discuss the Miami Heat, even though nobody really likes to talk about the reigning champs.
