Eye on Basketball Podcast: Back in the saddle

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

After a short vacation in Dallas, I'm back for some podcasting and I've got Matt Moore to catch me up on what I missed in the NBA the previous five days. With controversy in the Pacers-Nuggets game and the Lakers' three-game winning streak, there's plenty to discuss. But we start off talking about the terrible news about Rajon Rondo and his ACL tear.

Where do the Celtics go from here, if anywhere? Should they just blow it all up and start trying to put young talent on the roster for when Rondo gets back to 100-percent strength? Will Rondo actually get back to full strength, and how long will it take? What does this mean for the Celtics' season? Can they survive?

We also talk about Kobe's new role on the new-look Los Angeles Lakers. How have they changed what they're doing? Is Kobe Bryant a new player on this team? Should he be the primary playmaker with Steve Nash being a floor-spacer? Also, what exactly happened in the controversial ending to the Nuggets-Pacers game on Monday?

We get into all of that, preview games, and I talk about how hard it is to ride a mechanical bull.
