With Ross Martin out on assignment, the boys decide to have an NBA pre-preview show with NBA blogger Matt Moore of CBSSports.com (follow Moore on Twitter (@MattMooreCBS or @hpbasketball) and Nuggets Beat Writer Christopher "Don't Call Me Chris" Dempsey (@dempseypost) from the Denver Post.
An NBA quiz gets us ready to start talking hoops. The guys go over their early lists of NBA contenders, debate how much LaMarcus Aldridge's signing changes the Spurs' chances, how Billy Donovan and Fred Hoiberg will fare with the Thunder and Bulls, respectively, and where the Nuggets fit into the mix in the West.
And the guys finish up the show by discussing the direction of the Nuggets under Tim Connelly, what it means for the program to have the veterans back that re-signed and extended their contracts over the summer, what may come from Emmanuel Mudiay this season, and much more.
Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!
