    Green picks the G-League, GarPax is no more and more

    Welcome back! In this week's episode, Andy Behrens and Dalton Del Don break down the latest happenings in the basketball world.

    The H.O.R.S.E. tournament happened, and while it wasn't quite up to the level of playoff basketball, we'll take anything when it comes to basketball content. (02:30)

    Yes, the Chicago Bulls finally let go of general manager, Gar Forman. Dalton and Andy discuss the outlook of the Bulls after these front office changes. (06:33)

    Elsewhere in the land of talented duos, it was reported that the relationship between Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert was “broken.” (21:05)

    In a bit of a stunner, potential No. 1 20201 NBA Draft pick, Jalen Green, announced he would forgo college and go straight to the G-League and perhaps pick up a $500,000 contract. (23:40)

    Finally, dear listeners, this will be our last podcast for a while, our “load management” phase while we learn more about the NBA season’s future. We appreciate all of you listening while the NBA was on hiatus!

    H-O-R-S-E is coming — and are the Bulls actually doing something right?

    H-O-R-S-E is coming — and are the Bulls actually doing something right?

    Welcome back! In this week's episode, Andy Behrens and Dalton Del Don break down the latest happenings in the NBA and fantasy world.

    The latest update on the season is no update, as Adam Silver doesn’t expect any decisions to be made about the season until at least May 1. (00:30)

    But that doesn’t mean the NBA has no plans for content. There’s a H-O-R-S-E tournament in the works! Chris Paul, Trae Young, and Zach LaVine are confirmed to be a part of it along with WNBA players Allie Quigley, Tamika Catchings and NBA alumni like Paul Pierce.

    The Hall of Fame class of 2020 was announced, and for whatever reason, this has become a popular question in the basketball world: Would you rather have had Kobe Bryant's playing career or Tim Duncan's? (13:55)

    Elsewhere in the NBA, the Chicago Bulls seem to be legitimately shaking up its basketball ops, hiring Denver GM, Arturas Karnisovas. It's unclear if Spencer Dinwiddie was taken seriously as a candidate, but his multi-tweet plan to rebuild the team is actually … not bad? (22:11)

    And if you're missing fantasy sports as much as we are, Dalton has FINALLY released his League of Legends review, an exhaustive five-part series eclipsing 10,000 words. You can check out Parts 1-4 here, with Part Five going live on Friday! (29:54)

    If you need more sports content in your lives, Andy will be joining our very new “Boxed In” podcast where he will have the pleasure of trashing Hoosiers.

    NBA updates, 'The Last Dance,' and Michael Jordan, college GOAT?

    NBA updates, 'The Last Dance,' and Michael Jordan, college GOAT?

    Welcome back! In this week's episode, Andy Behrens and Dalton Del Don break down the latest happenings in the basketball world.

    The NBA is continuing to maneuver around and through the current situation with Mark Cuban backing off a bit on his previous comments about a June return to action, and with Austin Rivers providing an idea on how it could return. (02:30)

    Elsewhere in the NBA world, Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers players are officially symptom-free, while ESPN has been sharing a lot of Michael Jordan news of late.

    First up, Jordan won ESPN’s College Basketball GOAT bracket. No shade to Jordan, but we might need to organize a Lew Alcindor highlight watch party. (10:15)

    In a move widely applauded by sports-craving fans everywhere, ESPN announced they’d be releasing “The Last Dance” later this month, ahead of its original release date. The 10-part documentary focuses on Michael Jordan’s 1997-98 title-winning season, his last with the Chicago Bulls. (16:54)

    And Andy shares his thoughts on the 1988 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago, a low-key classic headlined by Jordan, but also features an All-Star appearance by Danny Ainge who came ready to shoot! (37:45)

    If you need more fantasy sports content in your lives, Yahoo Fantasy Football is still going strong. We’re doing a series this month on the players you need to know in the NFL draft.

    Early look at 2020 fantasy drafts & Andy joins the League of Leagues

    Early look at 2020 fantasy drafts & Andy joins the League of Leagues

    Welcome back! In this week's episode, Andy Behrens and Dalton Del Don break down the latest happenings in the NBA and fantasy world.

    Andy took part in his first League of Leagues draft this past weekend. It’s a three-sport fantasy league that combines the NBA, NFL, and MLB. The draft lasted 51 ROUNDS — which equates to a bit over 10 hours! Fantasy — an endurance sport. (05:25)

    - The first 12 NBA picks in League of Leagues were: James Harden (taken by our own Andy Behrens), Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis, LeBron James, Karl-Anthony Towns, Nikola Jokic, Bradley Beal, Damian Lillard, Kevin Durant, Jayson Tatum, Stephen Curry, and Paul George. (10:45)

    - Andy and Dalton discuss whether Kevin Durant will return to MVP form. (14:45)

    - Dalton explains why he took Kawhi Leonard with his second pick, currently the number 4 fantasy NBA player per-game. (16:55)

    - Where should Kyrie Irving be drafted next year? (24:32)

    - And are we sleeping on Lonzo Ball? (30:12)

    And some ICYMI for this week: Mark Cuban says his hope is for the season to return before June. And if you need more basketball content in your lives, check out Yahoo’s Posted Up Podcast. Chris Haynes recently chatted with Quinn Cook and Collin Sexton about how they’re handling isolation.

    Let's give out some awards!

    Welcome back! In this week's episode, Andy Behrens and Dalton Del Don break down the latest happenings in the NBA and fantasy world.

    In last Monday’s episode, we discussed some updates to the NBA and fantasy basketball as a whole.

    The league is still hopeful for a mid or late-summer return. Unfortunately, four Nets players tested positive for the coronavirus, including Kevin Durant. (04:44)

    Commissioner Adam Silver spoke with ESPN about some of his ideas, including a possible charity game to start the season. He also spoke of altering the schedules of the rest of the season as well as the playoff schedule. This also includes potentially starting next year’s season this December. (06:10)

    Our experts are joined in this episode by RotoWire’s Nick Whalen, and together they hand out some fantasy basketball awards! (11:30)

    These include Fantasy MVP: your nominees are James Harden, LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic, or Anthony Davis. (17:07) And we’ll discuss Fantasy Sleeper of the Year: your choices are Spencer Dinwiddie, Brandon Ingram, Domantas Sabonis, Hassan Whiteside, or Andrew Wiggins. (28:15)

    If you disagree with our picks, you can vote on these awards as well. Go here for full details!

    We’ll hand out some fake awards too, like fantasy bust of the year. Apologies to Mitchell Robinson, De’Aaron Fox, and Draymond Green. (48:53)

    We know these are tough times — how are you keeping busy without the NBA or fantasy basketball? Let us know!
