Kevin Pelton is one of the brightest minds in the NBA and he brings his insight to Locked on NBA. David Locke and Pelton start by talking about the Eric Bledsoe trade and the impact that will have on the Milwaukee Bucks.
The conversation moves to teams building around young stars and then to the early season trends including increased pace. Locke thinks that offensive rebounding has become more important than ever with the decrease in offensive rebounding around the league.
Who is the best offensive player in the NBA this year? Locke says it is LeBron James.
Pelton shares that stars aren’t getting calls like they usually do and the impact it is having on some teams most notably the Oklahoma City Thunder. Locke continues to insist that the Thunder aren’t going to get it right.
Is the play of Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis an indictment on Russell Westbrook?
Then Locke and Pelton go rapid fire on teams touching on Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Toronto Raptors, Portland Trailblazers and Memphis Grizzlies.
