David Locke hangs out with USA Today writer Sam Amick for this edition of Locked on NBA to run through the eye test of the NBA, early season rookies, the greatness of LeBron James and more.

They start the conversation talking about the good rookies but also Lonzo Ball and how concerned should we be about his early season start. Then they move to the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Other teams they looked on the eye test were the Portland Trailblazers and the Indiana Pacers which lead to a meandering conversation about the impact Russell Westbrook has on teammates.

A fun insightful NBA conversation with Sam Amick that includes discussions on Andrew Wiggins, Donovan Mitchell, Karl Anthony Towns, DeAndre Jordan, Derrick Favors, Kyrie Irving and more.
