Eye on Basketball Podcast: Welcome back, NBA

We have NBA basketball tonight that matters! It's opening night in the NBA and we're so excited that we want to make sure we talk about every team in the league. Matt Moore joins me to discuss his Power Rankings and we give our final offseason/preseason thoughts for all 30 teams before the opening tip-off tonight. How do we feel about the teams at the bottom of the league? Who is tanking the right way? Are the Phoenix Suns and Orlando Magic tanking teams you can enjoy? Should the Boston Celtics be so low?

There is an ideal savior and undoing for each team. Is DeMarcus Cousins both of those roles for the Sacramento Kings? What about Josh Smith for the Detroit Pistons? Are we certain LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love will buy in all year for their respective teams? Why would we compare Andrew Bynum as the ice cream to the Cleveland Cavaliers' apple pie? Is the only possible undoing of the Miami Heat a post-apocalyptic world that they can still probably survive in?

We discuss all of this, plus already missing out on sleep for the season, swaddling babies, and much more.
