  • They reflect on Jalen Smith’s draft pick and how he fits with the Phoenix Suns.

  • They discuss the loss of Anthony Cowan Jr., Smith, Ricky Lindo Jr., Serrel Smith Jr. and Joshua Tomaic.
  • What kind of impact will transfers Jairus Hamilton and Galin Smith have?
  • There are eight newcomers on the roster. Walt breaks down how difficult it is to build chemistry and an identity with the truncated season.
  • They discuss how competitive the Big Ten is and which teams will be at the top of the standings.
  • The trio gives out superlatives for their expectations of the most improved player, the player to make the biggest jump, as well as the starting five.
