Then (16:00): Among NBA players who signed one-year deals, who are the biggest winners, and who are the biggest losers? From there (30:00): Devin Booker vs. LeBron James for the saddest promise of the year, generic praise for the Detroit Pistons, an intriguing what-if scenario for the 76ers, the playoff adjustment for the Bucks, and the Giannis strategy at the 2020 DNC. At the end (65:00): Luka and the tanking Mavs, revisiting the loan system, regularly scheduled relegation discussion, Dad's Marriott flex and a potential family feud, Marriott points are German Marks, LeBron is not the GOAT, and Warriors fans are free to apologize whenever they're ready.
