We talk Daryl Morey and China. It's a complicated subject and we recommend better podcasts than us, like the Exponent Podcast.
We talk about contract extensions. Bradley Beal, Buddy Hield, Domantas Sabonis, Dejounte Murray,
Taurean Prince, Jaylen Brown, Joe Ingles are all on the table. Don't worry we don't forget Pascal Siakam, we just leave him till the end of the show.
We talk about the Zion injury. We're not happy about it. Paul DeVos noted months ago that players of Zion's size don't tend to last in the NBA.
We talk about some overarching analytics lessons. One issue we've harped about the NBA for years is the lack of transparency in a lot of metrics/analysis.
We talk Greg Steele's grades for the Warriors and discuss if the Klay Thompson extension really deserves a B grade.
