This was just a delight to listen to. Even when Jerry talked about guys like McLemore and Thomas Robinson, I was able to smile, which normally isn’t my reaction when thinking about those guys.
I love the new format too, with the Q&A with Jerry and the little Reynolds speech at the end.
Love hearing Jerry talk. Such a pleasure to listen to.
Jerry takes naturally to Podcasts, it seems.
“Don’t put much stock into what the coach says about a prospect.” Reminds me of coach K pimping up Bagley.
Allow me to nitpick. Players picked behind PapaG;
Hernangomez, Malik Beasly, Caris LeVert, Siakam, Dejounte Murray, Zubac and Brogdon.
Name suggestions for the Q&A segment:
I’ve heard before that the Maloofs never interfered with the draft. I had said something about the Maloofs directing a pick one time in a post years ago and got a voicemail from Jerry that I never deleted defending them. But Petrie’s reasoning, or at least what’s been reported in the past, was that Petrie was concerned the Maloofs wouldn’t pay what it would take to keep JT or sign any other significant FAs, so he took Robinson to ensure he’d have a power forward.
I thought I recalled people saying that the Kings took Jimmer because the Maloofs wanted to sell tickets or something since he was a star at BYU?
I’m sure people have said such things, but I don’t think that was ever sourced info. That might have been the thing I said that prompted Jerry to call me lol
I believe it was speculated even before the draft. They had just sold the beer distribution and it was known that their financial situation was shaky. It seemed like a reasonable assumption at the time.
That was really enjoyable. Great job, guys!
He said he learned more from you than anybody.
Except I don’t think he followed your fashion sense.
Caveated anybody at the site that shall not be named. There was a time that it was just Ziller and me, and Ziller is a robotic cat. Low bar and all that.
This episode is so fun to listen to. Great job guys. Can’t wait for the next one.
Great work! Nice job landing Mr. Reynolds!
(Can I admit publicly without judgment that this was the first old site/TKH podcast I have ever listened to?)
I’m just glad you were able to get a podcast to play on your phonograph
Good opening discussion. Quite the birthday present, in fact. Woot!
Happy belated, Nate.
Happy Birthday! 🙂
I’ve been lurking in the weeds for years (followed over when you guys launched). I usually just read the articles/comments and pass on podcasts (all sites in general). This was an entertaining listen though, it was interesting to hear some of the draft process and some old stories about blowing drafts.
