Eye on Basketball Podcast: Elite 100 rankings, Media Days
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss Larry Sanders on Brandon Jennings, Wolves/Nuggets media days, and the first 50 of our Elite 100 rankings.
Training camps have officially started for all 30 teams and we're getting early chatter out of media days. Matt Moore joins me to discuss what he saw for the Denver Nuggets ' Media Day and what I observed with the Minnesota Timberwolves ' Media Day. Is Kenneth Faried going to get moved into trade rumors? Is Ty Lawson the leader Brian Shaw needs? Is Kevin Love being a little ornery with the media about last season? Is Derrick Williams looking to move to the 3 with his weight loss?
After that, we get into our Elite 100 rankings that are being posted this week. We've got 100-51 up during the time of this recording and discuss the backend of our rankings. Why is DeMar DeRozan so high on here? Is there a reason not to include Jeff Green ? Is Manu Ginobili done and undeserving of being on the list? Is Gerald Wallace really still a Top 100 player? And why would you still believe in Andrew Bynum and Amar'e Stoudemire after their recent injury history?
We discuss all of that, plus Nikola Pekovic 's tattoo, Larry Sanders ' shot at Brandon Jennings , and much more.
