We take a look at the new-look Golden State Warriors with beat writer Anthony Slater of the Athletic (0:50). Can Draymond Green prop up a leaky defense? Who makes this team and who is going to play at the back end of the rotation? Will the D’Angelo Russell move work out? And how low is Nate actually going below the under of 48.5 wins, and why?
Then Adam Mares of DNVR Nuggets and Locked on Nuggets examines whether the Denver Nuggets can take the next step this year (1:21:07). That starts with centerpiece Nikola Jokic. Then we talk through what to expect with new additions Michael Porter, Jr. and Jerami Grant, plus whether Gary Harris and Will Barton can bounce back. Finally we discuss whether last year’s defensive performance will improve or regress and give our predictions.
Then, making his long-awaited debut, Your Friendly Bullsblogger Matt Bernhardt, @BullsBlogger (2:37:25). We hit on the Bulls’ chances of making the playoffs this year, how new additions Thaddeus Young and Tomas Satoransky fit in, whether Coby White will figure this year, and if key youngs Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen can improve significantly this year. Plus no discussion with Matt would be complete without some Jim Boylen talk.
