Duncan Smith site expert for Piston Powered and contributor for Athletic Detroit.

 

Hello everyone I am Chris Platte and welcome back to Strictly Hoop Talk! This podcast is the third of 6 division preview podcasts to be released before the NBA season tips off. In each division my guests and I will recap every team's offseason, offer a little gambling advice on the Vegas over/unders and discuss the most important topics facing each team this season. Next up is the Central Division! Duncan Smith site expert for Piston Powered and contributor for Athletic Detroit makes his debut appearance on the show to break down the division he is most plugged in to. In this podcast we break down the curious case of the Detroit Pistons. Duncan and I break down how Detroit’s rotation might look, what to expect from Drummond and Stanley, and how it could all go bad again. For the Chicago Bulls we take a look at the roster filled with prospects and pick which most interest us as well as try to predict the state of the Bulls and how Chicago will rebuild going forward. For the Indiana Pacers we discuss how this team will build around Myles Turner as well as how good we think this team will be this season.   For the Milwaukee Bucks we analyze how much we expect the core to grow from last season as well as how this team will build around Giannis. For the Cavs we discuss their exciting offseason full of drama as we look to answer the burning questions. Is this team better or worse? What Lebron will we see this year? Will Lebron leave again? All this plus much more! Enjoy!
