Matt Moore joins me for some podcasting fun today because we have the fun of the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery Tuesday night. The Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, and Orlando Magic have the best odds of remaining in the top 3 pick with this star-studded draft class, but there are so many great possibilities for teams to win the lottery. What would Stan Van Gundy do with the top pick if the Detroit Pistons win? What if they move back one and lose their pick to the Charlotte Hornets? Do we want to see the Los Angeles Lakers or Boston Celtics move up to the top pick at all?
The Oklahoma City Thunder badly missed Serge Ibaka in their Game 1 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs did whatever they wanted inside as Scott Brooks started throwing all kinds of options at the wall. What about Kevin Durant at the 5? How much better do he and Russell Westbrook need to play together? How can the Thunder contain Manu Ginobili? And is the Spurs' bench sustainable?
