Two Hoops-Crazy Guys Merging Analytics With In-Game Analysis to Create a Better Understanding for the Game

    Defensive Player of the Year & All-Defense with Jackson Frank

    Defensive Player of the Year & All-Defense with Jackson Frank

    On today's episode of Premium Hoops, we dive into the Defensive Player of the Year award as well as our All-Defensive Teams. We were fortunate to be joined by Jackson Frank. He does some phenomenal work over at The Step Back, Dime Uproxx, and on his own Patreon channel. You can follow Jackson on Twitter here.







    We start off by talking about our DPOY honorable mentions and then jump into our top 3 picks on the ballot. We actually had quite a bit of discourse on our top picks, but all agreed that very little separated the three.







    After deciding on the DPOY award, we transitioned into our All-Defensive Teams. While our top 8-9 players were pretty clear-cut, we talked about and debated roughly 10 other players we all felt deserved consideration for our final spot. We then transition into talking about up and coming players who we think have the potential to win Defensive Player of the Year someday and make many All-Defensive Teams. Lastly, we debate whether or not we think a guard will have a chance to win DPOY in the next 15 years. Gary Payton was the last guard to win the award in 1996, and only two non-bigs have won it since 2000; Kawhi Leonard (twice) and Ron Artest.







    This podcast was a ton of fun to record. NBA defense is difficult to gauge largely, as there are many contrasting ideas about what quantifies as "good defense."

    2019-20 NBA Awards: Part 1 (MVP, All-NBA, Sixth Man, Most Improved)

    On today's episode of the Premium Hoops podcast, we debate the first half of the 2019-20 NBA Awards.







    We normally have very similar ideas, but today, we had by far our most discourse! While Giannis and LeBron were clearly above the rest, how did we fill out our MVP ballots?







    Did Dennis Schroder deserve the Sixth Man award over Lou Williams & Montrezl Harrell? Is Goran Dragic going undernoticed?







    During our All-NBA discussion is where we had the most discourse!

    The Utah Jazz Conundrum: Premium Hoops Round Table

    The Utah Jazz Conundrum: Premium Hoops Round Table

    On today's episode of the Premium Hoops podcast, we dive deep into the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are at a place of good, but not quite great. We delve into their personnel and the difficult roster decisions faced by their front office.







    We start by talking about Bojan Bogdanovic and how he elevated the Jazz offense and impacted team defense.







    In our discussion we talk about Mike Conley's slippage in tandem with Rudy Gobert's roll game. We also discuss Donovan Mitchell's effectiveness, the discourse around him, and his potential. The cap situation and surrounding talent on the Jazz roster are at the front of our conversation as well.







    Why did the defense fall so much? What's the Jazz's bubble outlook? How does this team take the next step and is it with the Gobert/Mitchell nucleus? What is the Utah Jazz's long-term viability as contenders?







    As we close out on the Jazz, we transition into some listener question's to answer from our mailbag!







    We answer questions about how we'll weigh seeding games, our thoughts on the Bucks' defense, how San Antonio might transition into a youth movement, what we miss about old basketball, and diving into one of the worst basketball games ever played! Thank you to all who sent in questions!







    On the pod: Mark Schindler, Cody Houdek, Nate Georgy, Scott Levine, and Evan Zaucha

    2004 Detroit Pistons: Rewinding & Reminiscing

    2004 Detroit Pistons: Rewinding & Reminiscing

    On today's episode of Premium Hoops, we dive into the 2004 Detroit Pistons, one of the great teams of modern basketball. The Pistons won their third title in 2004, but they way they did it is what makes this team special. We dive deep into what made this Pistons team great and one of the more compelling teams in NBA history,







    What made the Pistons defense so good? How central was Ben Wallace and is he a Hall of Famer? How tough was their competition? Could the Pistons have been a dynasty if they drafted Carmelo Anthony? Why was Rasheed Wallace the missing piece? Is Richard Hamilton's facemask a top 5 NBA look of all-time?







    We cover all of this and much much more.







    On the pod: Mark Schindler & Cody Houdek of Premium Hoops, along with James Edwards of The Athletic.
