Heliocentrism, Preparing for the Deadline, Old Man Shakes Fist at Cloud with Seth Partnow

Click to subscribe via RSS feed or iTunes.

Seth Partnow of the Athletic discusses the recent trend towards “heliocentrism” in the NBA, one player controlling everything for his team offensively.  Who are the players who do it now, why did this trend develop, and who else might be able to take on such a role in the future?

Then we hit on how teams prepare for the deadline and what processes they need to have in place to evaluate their options in that hectic period.

Then two more mini-segments, where we discuss players who could thrive in a larger role and a few things that have annoyed us in this NBA season.
