Eye on Basketball Podcast: Opening night and Jason Friedman
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the first night of the regular season before Jason Friedman comes on to break down what the Houston Rockets can be.
We have one night of the 2013-14 NBA season in the books and Matt Moore joins me to break down the action. How surprising was the Los Angeles Lakers' win over the Clippers and how much should you be on the Xavier Henry bandwagon? Do we take the Lakers more seriously or was this just one game? Did the Miami Heat remind the Chicago Bulls and Derrick Rose how far they are from challenging the Heat in the playoffs? And how good was Roy Hibbert in his season debut?
Then we switch gears and I welcome Jason Friedman from Rockets.com to discuss the state of the Houston Rockets as they begin the most optimistic season they've had in years. What combinations might work best for the Rockets in regard to their defensive combinations? How will Dwight Howard and James Harden work together? Can the Rockets play any style of basketball they want? Do the Rockets need a young player to step up? And is Jeremy Lin in the Sixth Man role a stroke of genius?
We discuss all of this, plus Daryl Morey for Executive of the Year, preview tonight's games, and talk about how bad Ted was.
