Shams Charania on Victor Wembanyama's Impact - Run It Back
On today’s episode, the crew discusses the Denver Nuggets winning Game 1 of the Western Conference Final against the Los Angeles Lakers, whether Nikola Jokic is the best player on the planet, and if the Lakers should feel optimistic after the Game 1 loss. Then, they react to the San Antonio Spurs winning the NBA lottery and the right to draft presumptive first-overall pick Victor Wembanyama and their biggest takeaways from how the rest of the picks shook out. Next, they talk about the Philadelphia 76ers firing Doc Rivers, potential replacements to watch, and whether Doc would’ve survived if the Sixers had beaten the Celtics. After that, they preview Game 1 of the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics series and if they believe the Heat can upset the Celtics. Finally, NBA Champion Stephen Jackson joins the show to chat about what Victor Wembanyama can expect playing for the Spurs, his advice for Ja Morant as he continues to find himself in the news for the wrong reasons, and his podcast “All The Smoke” with Matt Barnes.
