Wait for the you alive.
I don't That's kind of, you know, just start without it to stay alive.
It's been 26 on the Oh, uh, the one that's for four cents.
You know, on a match for Tzeitel.
And to day finally, that time of year where the MBA is 10 days of why I am so psyched.
This often has been the craziest offseason another.
And here, see, I'm still talking about the NFL in N B A history, and I am so excited for the season.
But today I'm gonna be talking about 10 guys that, in my opinion, you should be watching this season in the end.
30 guys, I couldn't pick out of this bunch.
I mean similar guys that I missed.
I didn't even I don't even have a single clipper here.
Like I don't have co.
I I don't have blood, George.
I don't have guys like Terry Rozier who's now the head of his new team.
I don't have Christoph forcing us.
I don't have, like, those good amount of God that don't have that I could have had.
I only have, haven't I? Technically have three rookies, even though one of them was a white shirt and you asking him for who that is, but, um, yes.
These guys tend to wander into my opinion of who I think is gonna be, um, who I think is gonna be the most interesting to watch this year.
So let's get right into a number 10 coming out of Portland.
Zach Collins. Not Zach Collins.
Uh, you played really well in the playoffs last year.
He comes, showed why he was worth 1/10 of all pick.
He was playing really well.
I don't exactly have the numbers with me, unfortunately, but he was put him.
I think he was the third leading scorer behind obviously, McCollum and Lillard, and he was playing really well.
I was incredibly impressed by him.
I was super happy to see because I loved him when he played in Gonzaga.
I think they told they should have won the championship.
Uh, as a Villanova fan, I automatically hate North Carolina.
So, um, there's no wonder I would think I want to get started when but Um, yes.
So I think that Zach Cons I wanted to see more of that this year.
That's my thing.
He's gonna be probably starting at power forward if not sent her this year because a pickup of sound Whiteside.
And now that Meyers London to go on.
By the way, also, Fleet will be, well, another guy that was snubbed from this list.
Zach lahn is gonna have a lot more opportunities, and I want him to shine in those opportunities.
I feel like sea would be really good.
Also got coming in.
If you guys want for the chance to buy that on to ask me questions about some of the guys I'm thinking about, then feel free.
Um, anyway, Okay, moving on.
We got, um at number nine, man, remember who have been here, right? Shay A guild is Alexander.
So obviously one of the primus.
The starting trade that changed everything was the Paul George trade.
The Oklahoma City like Oklahoma City, like seven texts, like, at least off of, um, off of their two trades before Kawai and God.
Okay, so you just got along.
That's that's pretty much gonna um And if one of the two stars goes down in l.
Then they don't have any draft face to make up.
So, um, nevertheless, we're talking about shaking loose Alexander.
And I had a really good rookie year.
In my opinion, I like his place.
I wasn't tall. Mean point guard.
He's gonna be playing shooting go this year because Chris, Paul, But Chris Paul, I have a feeling it's gonna be out of that team by the end of the year.
Um, so I think shady eldest.
His kind of progression got interrupted by the street.
And that's why I think is so interesting this year because he says his profession got interrupted.
Now he's kind of the He's kind of one of the bigger options on that team.
And whereas in, um is, as in L.
A. He wasn't as much a scoring off.
She was born a passer, but I think I expect more scoring from him.
And that's why I think he's so interesting coming into this year.
Uh, okay, so that's two down, right? Jason? T.
This one kind of might turn some heads a little bit.
I decide to choose.
Jason came over Kemba Walker, buckaroo, or pretty much shining any and every system that he's in.
So, um, I'm Peter.
Because of this. Jason Dana was expected.
He stayed pretty much the exact same player during a sophomore, Stan, and people weren't expecting that they wanted him to progress.
More become a true star.
I even had him last year when I predicted, um when I made my annual predictions, which, by the way, that will be for you very soon.
Um, I chose him to be an All Star for the East because the East was so banged up now.
Artist The East was so much better last year than people expected, but he just did not progress.
And what I think makes him Stephanie thing makes him so interesting this year is because even though he didn't progress, this is kind of his last chance.
In my opinion, if they don't get somewhere, if they don't get deep into the playoffs, Jason Tatum might be on the show and I I mean, I would not be surprised if they don't play Walter the rookies.
I wouldn't be spot to see Jalen Brown accident via the trade deadline.
Uh, but Jason Tay? No, I think he's on kind of his last limbs here.
I don't think the Celtics are gonna give him too many more chances.
Moving on to number seven, I believe I know what this is, is it? Yes, sir.
One of my favorite rookie's coming into this year.
Keep in mind for my are stupid for my annual and be a vicious.
He's actually one of my nominees for working a year.
Um, actually, I think all three of my nominees for Rookie of the Air and this radio um Tyler Herro.
Now when I say that he's a candid forgive the year for May, people probably be like, what off? Flip like Seriously, like this guy like Tyler hero.
Now tell Hera was the 14th overall pick last 14th overall pick.
Think is he? Next is the Is the next 14 aerobic next now.
But the next forces at work.
Last year's a couple years ago.
43rd world. Biggest coming very soon.
Um, anyway, Tyler hair.
Oh, I loved him in college.
He was really good.
I liked his place out.
He's a very good shooter.
Is a very a playmaker, especially for a guy who doesn't look like he could be that much for a playmaker.
And he's playing frickin amazing this species.
And he played awesome.
And suddenly he's kicking ass in preseason.
And I like, I think this guy could definitely get some chances.
Dion waiters is currently currently listed over him as a starting shooting guard, but I think that's gonna change by the season.
I think tell her hair is gonna prove himself.
And I think Jimmy Butler is very impressed by him.
Jimmy Butler's kind of their star right out.
So, uh, I would not be surprised to see him start of not surprised to see him kind of play.
Well, I have a feeling if he wins working, you were to be, like, very unlikely.
But if he wins rookie of the year, it's gonna be similar.
Like Malcolm Brogdon vibe, Um, which I don't know what I feel like.
I'm naming like everybody in this list before I'm supposed to be naming them anyway.
Stay tuned for rocking body, but, uh, anyway so, yeah, I think I just think Tyler here is gonna be really good.
Oh, I think He's gonna be a great flier.
Moving on number six.
We have Julius Randle, Julius Randle of the ex.
I chose to Israel beasts are they bear? We still have not seen them tend to play in the N B A.
Like on a legit level.
Um, Julius Randle we have.
He hasn't drastically improved.
He played probably his best season Last year he played great in New Orleans and now he's on the next, where he I believe I'm gonna look at the left.
Are really really Yeah, he's pretty much the star.
I mean, dance with Junior.
And I guess, Sergeant, very good May.
So you make arguments for But you could see like Julius Randle.
Joyce Reynolds basically put in a leadership position this year, and I don't know if he's ready for that yet, Which is gonna be the interesting thing, because Julius Randle is like, I mean, don't everyone do? Mr Rand was really good, but I don't think he's ready to be a leader, and that's what makes him so interesting this year because he's going to have to be a leader.
Dennis Smith Jr has not been able to do that here.
Kevin Knox has not been able to do that.
You held Mitchell Robinson has not been able to do that here.
So I'm excited to see how Julius Randle takes that leadership role on the court.
Now, we either getting into our top five.
And this kind of this one was kind of Homer for May, I must say, uh, I probably shouldn't have put him this high on the list.
I bought my number five is a man by the name of Benjamin Simmons.
Do we? Ben Simmons made of three.
On a night where Steven Adams and move our mom, Boban Marjanovic both made threes.
Ben? Ah, part of my friend share.
Ben fucking Simmons made a three pointer when I heard about it.
His fans were shocked when they heard about it.
76 spheres were shocked.
The question is this gonna be confident That's a chute.
Doesn't get in a very good game.
Remember that they're playing a Chinese.
They were playing up the long lions of the C B A.
So I'm a little worried that he's not gonna have the confidence to do that against actual MBA teams, even though he did it against leaders.
However, I'm also so worried he's the only team he's gonna shoot against is gonna be the Lakers.
I want to see him shoot more, which is why he's so interesting.
He's also He also now has pretty much an all star level talent on on the court right now, Joffrey for says, I kind of chose him over just so interesting because I think Josh is actually has a chance to be incredible is here.
Um, he's looking really good so far, and I love and I love him in the right and blow, but, um but yes, a handsome it's just keep shooting threes them.
That's one reason you should be watching him.
The second reason is because he's a floor general on the fact that he's got so many guys around him is going to be very interesting.
I want to see how he kind of commands the floor with MTV level player like Joel Embiid.
All star level players like Josh sentence Vice Harris and All star players and All star player like Al Horford, so I'm excited to see him pass the ball through all those guys.
And yeah, and moving on the number four.
Now, this one is interesting because I'm not necessarily interested about the player.
I'm interested about his effect.
And I mentioned him earlier.
It's Malcolm Bog. Malcolm.
Robin is a very interesting player.
Um, obviously on the books for a long time, looking the year, uh, somehow wanted over John B.
I seriously don't know how, but, um, obviously an incredible player.
Um, and yeah, uh, except if acted, like he was a key part of that box team that went to the, um, championship.
Um, are the Eastern Conference finals? Excuse me.
Now the question is, he changed teams and the bus didn't really replacing their relation.
Was Wesley little with Wesley. Matthew, too.
Don't get me wrong.
He's a good veteran, but he's not been the same player over the last couple years.
He kind of revived his career last year with Guess who? The Pacers.
Um, so this Lafite feels a little unfair.
The fact I just think that Malcolm Brogdon is gonna be point guard on the Pacers with Victor L.
A Depot Myles Turner and one of and Lily Falters with Myles Turner from this year and demand this phone is he's finally gonna get that starting Mobius of Fatty is young.
This is gonna be really good and matter bottom Jimmy.
Part of that, the bucks are not gonna be as good.
Which is why I think the Pacers, when the Pacers by the bus, is getting like a split cities because they will pull II guaranteed four times because their division rivals and I can see them easily splitting the serious.
But Malcolm Brogden is good.
I've haven't been Ahmadabad's just gonna torch them now I'm around the number three.
Um, okay, I talked about the 14th envelope it last year.
It's my gold Fucking Porter Jr and Michael Porter Jr Look good.
Oh, my gosh, Michael Porter Jr Really good.
Um, in preseason, I definitely see.
I definitely could see him being a rookie of the year candidate.
Um, he's I think, that he could be a key part, and I think that the Nuggets currently it's listed That frickin Tory Craig is they're starting to, uh, small forward.
But I think Michael four genie will probably be starting the head.
I think he might actually be the best player to come out of that draft.
So yeah, I'm just excited to see what happens.
Um, yeah, Number two.
Now we're talking about some big boys.
Uh, these two guys are two of the most talked about players I mentioned. I didn't talk to him.
I don't have Anthony Davis almost less than Kawai Leonard on this list. I don't have George.
I don't have any of those guys moving.
But I do have this guy Russell Westbrook, uh, my number two.
And that is because I have the rocketeer into the files.
Could I think that that Kevin she looks really good between muscles harden That chemistry looks really good.
Obviously they played with each other before, and I think that the fact that Westbrook will have less pressure on him to facilitate the floor because of hardened right there, uh, with him is going to be better for it, because I think he he's a little passes for slave.
I mean, the man is still woo.
There's still 30.
So it's not like he's like a past his prime past his prime.
He's still tenderly in his prime, Sir, he said, if he still in its fine.
But, um, I can see him being much better because I think he will have less pressure.
And that's why I see the mark of the order.
Finally, I just think that he's the pressure that's gonna be lifted from him is gonna be so much better for him, and I think it'll let him shell and harden.
Harden might be in a VP candidate again this year.
Uh, how impressive I think that what is that? Four years And although he would be an enemy, began it James Harden's lily.
But, um, yeah, I think that he's gonna be I think that Westbrook's hear me really of this year and the number want.
And I mean, you could you could make an argument that was for containable.
Um, and I think that if Westbrook if West was number one, that I don't feel like it would be unfair.
But this player, because we've been talking about this guy for two years Physical specimen.
Motherfucking God, he's been killing of this preseason Well, and hopefully he won't fuck up.
Did you already speak? I have of course talking about science, Zion looks good.
I mean, I barely Oh, I just said bye.
I just said bye.
That's pretty funny.
I find my best not to buy in, um, to the Zayat height because I don't feel like this is a very, um is a very Greg wouldn't type.
Why? This seems like a very wagon type situation, but still it Zion Williamson.
We've never seen a guy like that.
If he's like this, then it's over.
Like design is gonna be really good.
I don't think he's gonna be a little block gate.
What? I could see him being a in a in T minus five years.
I could see him being one of the best.
I feel like he's gonna have, like a, um, I feel like he's going to have a Karl Anthony Towns type progression where he's really good.
His rookie year, he was rookie of the Year and he's still really good.
Now don't get me wrong.
He's still really good and that, but he's on a trash team and, by the way, I think are on the house should get traded sometimes, but he's just needs to get there So do I think Simon will ever win a championship? This is a very long time progression, you know.
But I do think that he will be a great plan.
And that's it for this episode.
My pick a party week is already weak. Six.
It's already re six.
As you know, it's, uh it's already Week six of the NFL and my eagles are playing the Vikings, and it's gonna be a game.
Um, think you guys were watching.
My name is my force.
And in typical I gotta do a diligent gonna do it.
Anyway, the doorway doses my Oh, that was really that uses.
Are you sure you want to end this podcast? Yes.
I am sure I want to end this podcast.
