Eye on Basketball Podcast: NBA Draft with Gary Parrish

Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com joins me on the show today to discuss the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft. As the college season gets closer to tournament time and the NBA teams start preparing their records for the upcoming lottery, it's time to start looking at the top of the draft and figuring out what teams may be getting. Should Andrew Wiggins still be considered the top prospect in this draft? How much of a threat is Joel Embiid for taking the number one spot? Is Jabari Parker's ceiling as high as the Kansas duo?

We also get into the Kentucky Wildcats prospects with a possible five players going in the top 20. What is keeping Julius Randle from being included with Wiggins and Parker? If his ceiling is Zach Randolph, is that necessarily a bad thing? Would you rather take Willie McCauley-Stein or James Young as the next big Kentucky prospect? Can you decipher which twin is better for the NBA when analyzing Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison?

We discuss all of this, plus Marcus Smart vs. Dante Exum, Syracuse fans being upset at you not believing their players will translate to the NBA, and traveling without a baby.
