The NBA Draft is Thursday night. Free agency starts a week later. So there’s no time for lengthy introductions here.
Just trust me: If you want to listen to two hoop nerds dive into all the latest around-the-league goss with our own intel and strong opinions, please check out my 75-minute visit via Spotify Live with The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor. (Read all of his work here.)
Enclosed is the recording from our live audio chat that delved into the latest on Kyrie Irving, Rudy Gobert, Deandre Ayton, John Collins, Bradley Beal, Myles Turner, Donovan Mitchell, Jabari Smith Jr., Chet Holmgren, Paolo Banchero, Jaden Ivey, Keegan Murray and too many other marquee names to list. Kevin O’Cuddly’s heartfelt soliloquy right at the end, professing his love and admiration for everything Gobert brings to the Jazz, is worth your attention alone.
If you weren't able to join KOC and me (and some 2,300 listeners) as the discussion was happening ... fear not. Full-fledged paid subscribers to The Stein Line, as always, get a recording emailed to them after the fact to catch up on the full conversation at their leisure.
