After three straight team interviews, all of which you can find at On the NBA Beat’s Team Interview Central, your hosts are back with some banter as they delve more deeply into specific topics surrounding each of those teams. For the Pistons, they check in on the early returns from the Tobias Harris acquisition and also try to make sense of the situation surrounding the voided Donatas Motiejunas trade. On the Knicks, the discussion focuses on Carmelo Anthony and his increasing frustration with the Knicks’ losing tendencies. Finally, the Blazers talk focuses on how the team might be able to find success in the playoffs and also Damian Lillard’s emergent superstardom.
