Eye on Basketball Podcast: Keep your sutures tight

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Royce Young joins me today for the podcast to discuss the impact of Russell Westbrook's knee injury that will keep him out for quite some time during the regular season. The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard will miss 4-6 weeks of the regular season after a loose stitch in his knee caused swelling. How big of an impact does this have on the Thunder? How long will it take for Westbrook to be Westbrook? Do they have enough guard depth? Will they possibly lose out on home court advantage in the first round because of it?

After the Thunder talk, we move on to our Elite 100 rankings and the 50-26 top players in the league that we released on Tuesday. Why is Serge Ibaka above guys like DeMarcus Cousins, David Lee, Al Jefferson, and David West? Will Kawhi Leonard pass Josh Smith this season? Is it sad that Kevin Garnett has dropped so low? Is it foolish to put John Wall over Ty Lawson? What about having Pau Gasol over Brook Lopez? How good is Rudy Gay?

We discuss all of this, plus the move of The Starters (TBJ) to NBA TV, Andre Iguodala, and much more.
