On this week’s episode, host Blake Murphy and guests discuss the following:

  • SEGMENT 1: Eric Koreen
    • The Reasonablists reunite!
    • Where you can find his work now, and what, exactly, The Athletic is.
    • Camp battles, storylines, and expectations for the coming season.
  • As a reminder from last week, Blake, Will, and Harsh also broke down both conferences in a mega-podcast over at The Defeated Podcast.

    Jalob Poeltl is twenty-one (not 19). And Pascal will be twenty-three before the season’s over. So we aren’t waiting for these guys to become men.

    And I think it might be mistake to see Bebe vs Poeltl as an “either/or” thing. Bebe ought to be more comfortable right now. But I’m hoping the Raps are readying Poeltl and Siakam to contribute to the team this season. Depth in our front court (and DeMar at SG) are our biggest advantages versus the Cavs. 🙂

      Yeah, sorry, he just turned 21 last week, not 20. I had it backwards. Sorry.
