ESPN's Kevin Pelton breaks down RPM win projections
On today's show Ben Golliver chats with NBA writer and analytics guru Kevin Pelton of ESPN Insider about his 2017-18 RPM win projections. Why are the Warriors projected to backslide after a strong summer? Are the Raptors really going to fall out of the East's elite? Can Minnesota vault all the way into home-court advantage? Is Houston, not Cleveland or San Antonio, now the biggest challenger to Golden State? How will the West's bubble shake out? Who will be the East's worst team? Plus, Golliver and Pelton reminisce about The Dontonio Wingcast, their long-lost NBA podcast, and the time Pelton jumped in front of Golliver's moving vehicle in Las Vegas. Note: Andrew Sharp is on vacation.
