30 Teams, 60 Minutes
Nick Whalen and Alex Barutha take a spin around the league discussing the two biggest questions facing each NBA team this season. Atlanta What are the ceilings of Trae Young and John Collins? Will De'Andre Hunter or Cam Reddish emerge as another core piece? Boston Does Gordon Hayward represent the ceiling of this team? Can Boston get passable minutes at center, and do they enter the Beal sweepstakes? Brooklyn Will Kyrie alienate his teammates/Can this team stay healthy? Will DeAndre Jordan stunt the growth of Jarrett Allen? Charlotte Can an NBA team be relegated to the G League? Will Terry Rozier go full Antoine Walker? Chicago Can Zach LaVine be the best player on a playoff team? Is this the core going forward? Cleveland Is trying to re-create the Lillard/McCollum dynamic smart? What will become of Collin Sexton? Dallas Will Kristaps Porzingis stay healthy? Does Luka Doncic have another level, or could this be a Ben Simmons situation? Denver How will the non-Jokic pieces develop? Do the Nuggets have a big trade to make? Detroit Will resting Blake Griffin to keep him fresh for the playoffs prevent the Pistons from making the playoffs? Will waiving Michael Beasley unleash a centuries-long curse on the franchise? Golden State Do you have to guard more than two players on this team? How do they weigh "going for it" versus managing Curry's workload? Do they cash in the Russell asset at some point? Houston Will the Westbrook/Harden tandem work? Can Houston get anything meaningful out of Danuel House/Eric Gordon/Ben McLemore/Austin Rivers? Indiana Are there enough playmakers on this team/Oladipo's health? How well will the Myles Turner/Domantas Sabonis frontcourt work? Los Angeles Clippers Will they be able to contain the league's top centers? How does Kawhi handle playing alongside another star? Los Angeles Lakers Will a lack of dynamic guards matter? Does LeBron genuinely believe in his roster/will they regret holding out for Kawhi Leonard? Memphis What position should Jaren Jackson, Jr. play long-term? Is Ja Morant the player we think he is?  Miami Can Bam Adebayo be more than a really good energy guy? Will Tyler Herro get arrested at a G Eazy concert? Is Jimmy Butler as good as he thinks he is? Milwaukee How do Middleton and, particularly, Bledsoe respond to expectations? Do they have the top-end talent to get past Philly? Minnesota How long can Minnesota hang around the playoff picture, and at what point do they consider selling everything but Towns (and maybe Covington)? How much would Wiggins want in a buyout? New Orleans What does a healthy Lonzo Ball look like outside of the Lakers' bubble? Can Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram co-exist? New York What will be the priority -- winning or development? Is this...Julius Randle's team? OKC How aggressively will the Thunder shop Chris Paul? What's the asking price for Steven Adams and Danilo Gallinari? Orlando Pass. Will Aaron Gordon get traded? Philadelphia Can Joel Embiid hold up over 100ish games? How much does depth matter with this starting five? Phoenix Is Devin Booker ready to grow up as a player? Did the Suns finally find a competent supporting cast? Portland Can Hassan Whiteside stay focused? Is Zach Collins good? Sacramento Can Luke Walton find a rotation that pleases everyone and maximizes depth? Is Marvin Bagley as good as he seemed toward the end of last season? San Antonio Will the Spurs find enough three-point shooting to stay afloat? How will Dejounte Murray/Derrick White mesh? Toronto What's the end-game for this season? Is Pascal Siakam capable of another leap forward? Utah Will the bench (especially the backcourt) be good enough? Can Mitchell become a superstar? Washington Will the Wizards do the right thing with Bradley Beal? How many 20/10 games will Thomas Bryant have?   Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
