Deep Thoughts From a Shallow Mind – NBA Draft Edition

Deep Thoughts From a Shallow Mind – NBA Draft Edition

Here’s something new for our listeners: rather than write a rambling 4,000 word post, I made a 20-minute podcast discussing a few things I have on my mind. In this audio episode of Deep Thoughts From a Shallow Mind I discuss:

  • Tonight’s NBA draft and whether the Thunder will get in on the action
  • The NBA’s July Moratorium ends two weeks from today
  • My thoughts on all of the “KD-to-everywhere” noise
  • Who will draft Buddy Hield this evening?
  • How the NBA’s rising salary cap has bitten not just Oklahoma City, but Boston as well
