Eye on Basketball Podcast: Offseason is almost over

Matt Moore joins me for today's podcast episode to wrap up the dwindling offseason. We're about to get into the month of September and that's when teams start gearing up for training camp. After all of the moves, what does the Eastern Conference look like? Are the Cleveland Cavaliers the absolute favorites to represent the East in the NBA Finals? How do we trust Derrick Rose's health and the Chicago Bulls? Are the Miami Heat being overlooked? Are the Toronto Raptors, Atlanta Hawks, and Washington Wizards ready to pounce?

And what about the Western Conference? Are the same playoff teams from last season going to be the same playoff teams for the 2014-15 season? Are the Dallas Mavericks one of the most improved teams? Are the Houston Rockets being undervalued because of backlash to Dwight Howard and James Harden? Are the Memphis Grizzlies one of the top teams? Can the Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Pelicans, or the Denver Nuggets take one of those spots?

We discuss all of that, plus the restricted free agency of Greg Monroe and Eric Bledsoe, which teams had the worst offseason, and much more.
