This week on The Doctor Is In with PhdSteve, I’ve assembled the worldwide round table! Joined by my brother Mike (who knows college basketball) and Greg Mason (the brain from the south) we preview the Western Conference and ask if San Antonio is the team to beat? Outside of the Spurs, we discuss why Mike likes OKC, Greg favours Golden State and why I can’t help myself from loving Minnesota.
We also unpack questions surrounding whether either of LA’s 2 teams are capable of winning the West? Turning our attention to #tankforwiggins we turn a critical eye to the Wiggins debut and compare it to big time starts by fellow Freshmen Jabari Parker and Julius Randle.
Turning our attention to the Raptors, I ask how much longer we will have to watch this offense before Dwane Casey sees what the rest of the world sees: it’s Jonas Valanciunas who need to be the focal point on offense. Lastly, we talk about who we’d all like to see as the Raptors starting 5.
