Who is Kristaps Porzingis? Everything You Need to Know
Scroll down for original podcast. How good is Kristaps Porzinzgis? Well, they say the sky is the limit with him. Seriously though, there is no real limit with this guy. There is a reason why he is called a unicorn. At 7’3, he can block shots, defend the paint, run, score in the post, knock down jumpers, AND he has 3 point range. It’s really incredible in terms of his full body of work. His only weakness may be that he can still be pushed around a bit. Also, the presence of Carmelo Anthony may actually slightly slow down Kris’ offensive growth. Full Highlights of Kristaps Porzingis: Blocks, Dunks, and 3 Pointers: When people ask how good can this kid be, no one is quite sure what to say. Most NBA pundits are afraid to say he will be a hall of famer, as they don’t know if he can stay healthy (there aren’t too many 7 foot 3 guys who are bastions of health), and wonder if he can become a more fluid player within an offense. HOWEVER, if you were to stop his career right now, you would see a guy averaging 20 and 8 with a continuous highlight reel of blocks, dunks, 3 pointers, and impressive post moves. I do get the feeling that most NBA players are not afraid of him (there is a stereotype against thin Europeans), but that will change. This is because Porzy will undoubtedly posterize a number of these players, and eventually will become a full on All Star. Check out some of his awesome highlights below: How old is Kristaps Porzingis? When he was drafted, he was just 19 years old! And what’s crazy is that even at that age he was already putting in decent numbers, with 14 and 7 in his rookie year. His sophomore year is better, and he is putting in 16 and 7.5. He was born on August 2, 1995, making him 21 years old. In comparison, fellow rookie Karl-Anthony Towns was born November 15, 1995. How tall is Kristaps Porzingis? He is listed as 7’3, though some in the NBA have said he looks even taller, though this is likely due to his thin frame. To be fair, he has gained significant muscle in the last 6 months, and may even be a factor for his recent Achilles injury. He is 221 centimeters. Where is Kristaps Porzingis from? He was born in Liepāja,

Pod 38: Real GM NBA Headlines 12-16-2016
The Rockets have renounced their rights to Donatas Motiejunas and he'll become an unrestricted free agent and will probably go to the Brooklyn Nets. Craig Sager has died at the age of 65 after getting cancer. Mike Conley Jr. will return 3 weeks earlier, but the Grizzlies are doing just fine without him and Chandler Parsons! Thanks to Marc Gasol, of course. Stephen Curry, drafted in 2009, will be able to sign for 35 percent of the cap - 5 years for $207 million!!! Phil Jackson wants to stay with the Knicks for longer, but that's probably because he sees that Kristaps Porzingis is legit. Before Russell Westbrook's two-game slide of losses and no triple-doubles, he loved triple doubles. Now he hates them? LOL. Hear the truth.

Pod 37: Why the Minnesota Timberwolves Suck
Why do the Minnesota Timberwolves suck this year? Every pundit and their mother predicted a 50 win team and the playoffs for this young team. But we knew better, as we pointed out on our season predictions a few weeks ago. Eveyrone said that Tom Thibodeau was worth 10 wins, Andrew Wiggins would make the leap, Kris Dunn will be great, and Zach LeVine is for real. Also, Karl Anthony Towns was ready to take over. Not so fast, Minnesota. In this show, I explain why bad karma from Glen Taylor firing Sam Mitchell and driving out Kevin Garnett is affecting this team, as well as a few basic on court problems that they are struggling with for the time being. Another reason why the Minnesota Timberwolves suck so badly in 2017 is due to sheer competition in the Western Conference! Think about it for a second. Look at who else is in the West: Western Conference W L W/L% GB PS/G PA/G SRS Golden State Warriors* (1) 73 9 .890 — 114.9 104.1 10.38 San Antonio Spurs* (2) 67 15 .817 6.0 103.5 92.9 10.28 Oklahoma City Thunder* (3) 55 27 .671 18.0 110.2 102.9 7.09 Los Angeles Clippers* (4) 53 29

The Russell Westbook and Kevin Durant feud took a funny twist, with Westbrook showing up to the his recent game against Golden State wearing a ridiculous "OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER" shirt! Durant loves photography BTW. More topics covered in this episode: Celtics tried to trade up for Joel Embiid, the ridiculous contract extensions for Steven Adams and Victor Oladipo, George Hill about to get paid by the mediocre Utah Jazz, and Isiah Thomas quietly becoming a top 10 closre for the Celtics. Oh, and James Hardens' insane numbers.

Pod 34: NBA News Roundup April 8, 2016
Sam Hinkie quits the 76ers, which is something we all saw coming. I talk about Jerry and Bryan Colangelo, and why they have such an easy job ahead of them, as well as measuring how successful they can be. Kevin Garnett is coming back for another season, which is crucial for Karl Anthony Towns' development. Also, Garnett probably wants another crack at the Playoffs. Kurt Rambis is incredibly being considered by Phil Jackson as a legitimate head coaching candidate for the Knicks next year. And finally, I talk about the Warriors, and whether they can crack 72 wins.

Pod 33: Nick Young VS D’Angelo Russell
What a week for the Lakers! We discuss the beef between Nick Young and D'Angelo Russell, and what went down. I reveal who leaked the tape, why Russell messed up with his phone, and what this means for the Lakers franchise. I also discuss Kobe Bryant's involvement. Obviously this will result in a Nick Young trade, and we talk about his stats and poor play this season. Additionally, we bring in Gilbert Arenas to give his underrated NBA analysis on the matter.

Pod 32: Revisiting the 2009 NBA Draft
The 2009 NBA Draft is turning out to be one of the most historic and fascinating drafts, due to great and terrible players. Aside from Steph Curry, perhaps on his way to becoming the greatest shooter ever, being slipping to #7, there was more intrigue. Blake Griffin was obvious at #1, but Hasheem Thabeet at #2 to the Grizzlies? James Harden, followed by Tyreke Evans were fair picks. But what about Minnesota Timberwolves GM taking Ricky Rubio followed by Johnny Flynn, just before Curry? Another interesting aspect of the draft was Jeff Teague, Jrue Holiday, and Ty Lawson were all taken in the mid-late first round. There were some other gems later in the draft, including Taj Gibson, Demarre Carrol, and Danny Green.

Pod 31: NBA News Roundup – February 26, 2016
This week in NBA news: Joe Johnson has been bought out by the Brooklyn Nets, and he left $3 million on the table. I talk about his decision to leave money on the table (not hard), and teams he might play for. If he wants to be playing in the NBA Finals, then he has to sign with the Cavs or Warriors, but the Warriors have not reached out to him. However, the Cavs have a deep backcourt, and Johnson isn't accustomed to playing as a reserve. Kevin Martin is reportedly in talks with the Wolves to be bought out, and I discuss his ultimately dissapointing career, and where he may sign for a possible playoff run. The Knicks were apparently approached by the Celtics for a Carmelo Anthony trade, perhaps offering Brooklyn's unprotected draft pick. Melo has a no trade clause and probably doesn't want to go to Boston, and the Knicks need to decide if they are rebuilding with Kristaps Porzingis, or winning now with Melo. I talk about when the Knicks can realistically have a shot at a ring. James Harden reportedly asked Daryl Morey to trade Dwight Howard, which obviously didn't happen. I talk about the Houston Rockets performance this year, and why the marriage between Harden and Howard has not worked out well. The Timberwolves have waived professor Andre Miller. This was surprising, as the Wolves are the anti-Sixers, with many veterans on the team. This might be the end of Andre, unless a playoff team picks him up. The Wizards signed JJ Hickson - this is the type of small move which won't help them, because guys like Hickson don't have much of a place in the NBA anymore.

Pod 30: Analyzing the 2016 NBA Trade Deadline
What a dissapointing NBA trade deadline...for Doc Rivers! In this episode, we break down the 5 big trades that were made: Randy Foye to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Jeff Green to the Los Angeles Clippers, Markieff Morris to the Wizards, Channing Frye to the Cavaliers, and Tobias Harris to the Pistons. What is more interesting was the lack of big names moved. Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, and Dwight Howard were the big names that were expected to garner significant trade movement, but nothing materialized. Do any of the trades went through help the teams? Sure. But don't expect any of them to mean anything other than a playoff appearance. Because the NBA Finals currently only have three candidates: The Spurs, Warriors, and Cavs. And unfortunately for the Clippers, Doc Rivers probably didn't help them with their Jeff Green acquisition. Channing Frye was the man they needed.
