It may be October heading into November, but the NBA offseason is here and there are a lot of questions: Will Giannis Antetokounmpo lock in with the Bucks? Will Victor Oladipo get traded? What about Chris Paul? Will the Timberwolves or Golden State trade out of one of the top couple picks in the NBA draft? Which teams made a smart hire with their n…
 
It's moved from June to October, and rather than cross-country flights everyone will be in a bubble in Orlando, but the NBA Finals are finally here: The Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Miami Heat. The Lakers are the heavy favorites but Miami posses some matchup challenges, starting with Bam Adebayo on Anthony Davis. Add in Jimmy Butler checking LeBron J…
 
In the wake of Tyler Herro looking like the best offensive player Miami has seen since some guy decided to go back home to Cleveland, the question becomes what players have helped themselves the most in the bubble, and in the playoffs in particular? Not coincidentally, Miami and Denver have a lot of those players. Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC …
 
What happened to a Clippers team that played like it was entitled to a trip to the Finals? Does the gritty, surprising Denver team that came back on Utah and the Clippers have a chance against LeBron James and the Lakers? Seriously, what happened to the Clippers? Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports discuss all of that, plus get into the start …
 
The ping-pong balls bounced the Minnesota Timberwolves way, they now have the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Now what? Do they take Anthony Edwards or LaMelo Ball, seemingly the consensus top two picks? Do either of them fit next to D'Angelo Russell at the point, and with Karl-Anthony Towns at center? Just how bad would Minnesota's defense be wi…
 
What is life like inside the NBA's restart campus at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, is it all just basketball and Mickey-shaped ice cream bars? Mark Medina of the USA Today is one of the reporters in the bubble and he spoke with Kurt Helin in this latest PBT Podcast about life and food in the bubble. They also discussed the scrimmage game…
 
Which team is going to win it all? Which is the biggest threat Milwaukee and Giannis Antetokounmpo in the East? Which team will be the biggest surprise? Can anyone catch Memphis for the eighth seed? The NBA is back and Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman from NBC Sports make their restart predictions on all of that and more in this podcast, plus they talk a…
 
The NBA is back! Or will be in July, at least, when 22 teams report to Orlando to play in a format that will see eight "seeding" games followed by potential play-in games for the eighth seed. After that it's a regular playoffs — no 1-16 seed but still East and West — with seven-game series each round. Kurt Helin, Dan Feldman, and Keith Smith break …
 
For the third straight season, Rob Dauster of College Basketball Talk collaborated with Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk for a full mock draft. Rob knows the prospects better than anyone. Kurt knows the teams and their needs better than anyone. The result is a unique listening experience breaking down who will be picked where based on fit. The fir…
 
To get inside the Jordan-era Bulls and the documentary The Last Dance, we went to the guy who wrote the book on Jordan. Literally. Author Roland Lazenby wrote "Blood on the Horns" about these very 1997-98 Bulls, plus he wrote "Michael Jordan: The Life" and he joined Kurt Helin of NBC Sports this week. They talk about the tension on that team with G…
 
LeBron James or Giannis Antetokounmpo for MVP? Zion Williamson or Ja Morant for Rookie of the Year? Can Rudy Gobert three-peat as Defensive Player of the Year? The entire team at NBC Sports' NBA page — Kurt Helin, Dan Feldman, and Keith Smith — talk about their picks for end-of-season awards, and the controversy isn't always where fans might expect…
 
Should Anthony Edwards be the No. 1 pick? Or James Wiseman? How would Obi Toppin fit with the Warriors? More importantly, how is anyone preparing for a draft when nobody knows when it will take place? Rob Dauster of NBC Sports joins Kurt Helin to discuss what they know and don't know about the 2020 NBA Draft, starting with nobody knowing when it wi…
 
What if the NBA added two new teams this summer, an expansion rebirth of the Seattle Supersonics plus the Flint Tropics? What would that expansion draft look like? What players would teams protect, and could players like Blake Griffin, Gordon Hayward, and Kevin Love be on the move? Kurt Helin, Dan Feldman, and Keith Smith of NBC Sports perform just…
 
The NBA has hit pause on its season after Utah's Rudy Gobert — and later, teammate Donovan Mitchell — tested positive for coronavirus. Now what happens? Is the season shortened, do they just resume where they are, and what could this mean for the draft, Summer League, and the Olympics? What will the reduction in income to the league mean to the sal…
 
Is Anthony Edwards out of Georgia a No. 1 pick? What about LaMelo Ball? James Wiseman? NBA teams are not convinced, they see this as a down draft year, but someone will have to go No. 1. Rob Dauster from NBC Sports joins Kurt Helin to talk about the draft overall and why you may not want a top three pick this year, which guys lineup to be good pros…
 
The NBA Trade Deadline saw the Clippers land Marcus Morris, the Timberwolves land D'Angelo Russell while getting out from under the contract of Andrew Wiggins, and Miami added Andre Iguodala to the mix while Memphis took on a lot of salary. Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports break the biggest NBA trade deadline deals down, and talk about the …
 
The NBA Trade Deadline is fast approaching and the rumors are flying. The Lakers want a playmaker, the Clippers want size up front, so do the Celtics, the Rockets want to trade Clint Capela to someone, and Andre Iguodala is still sitting out there. What is going to happen with all of this? Mark Medina of the USA Today joins Kurt Helin of NBC Sports…
 
Zion Williamson's debut lived up to the hype — at least 3.5 minutes of it did — and that sparked a discussion between Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports about what should be the takeaways from the night. Was Alvin Gentry wrong to pull him out in the fourth quarter? What can we expect going forward? And can the Pelicans make a playoff push? Ku…
 
Is it James Harden or Giannis Antetokounmpo for MVP? Kawhi Leonard or Rudy Gobert for Defensive Player of the Year? Can anyone catch Ja Morant for Rookie of the Year? We've reached the midpoint of the NBA season, meaning it's time for Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports to break down where the NBA's awards races stand. They also get into Coach…
 
Buy or Sell: Carmelo Anthony will make the Portland Trail Blazers better. Buy or Sell: The Boston Celtics are contenders in the East. Buy or Sell: Luka Doncic is an MVP candidate. Buy or Sell: LeBron James will lead the league in assists. Early this NBA season there are a lot of surprises, so Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports either buy or s…
 
The big question with the Knicks: WTF? On an entire podcast based around questions — mostly questions from you the listeners on a range of NBA topics — we had to start with that one about the Knicks. Tommy Beer from Forbes Magazine and NBC Sports Rotoworld joins Kurt Helin of NBC Sports to talks what has gone wrong with the Knicks this season, wher…
 
There is no easing into the NBA season. One week into the grind we have Stephen Curry with a fractured hand (on a block/charge play worth discussing), which is bad news but clarifies the path forward in Golden State. Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns are suspended (this was recorded before the news came down, but we discuss situation). And the fir…
 
Who will take home the NBA MVP hardware this season: Giannis Antetokounmpo? James Harden? Stephen Curry? What about Rookie of the Year? Can anyone top Zion Williamson? What would it take for Ja Morant or anyone else to get into the conversation. Finally, what team will hoist the Larry O'Brien Trophy at the end of the season? Will it be a team from …
 
What are the odds that one of the teams from Los Angeles is in the NBA Finals? Could the Utah Jazz surprise the Lakers and Clippers, returning to the Finals for the first time since Stockton and Malone? Is it Denver's turn to step up? James Harden and Russell Westbrook in Houston's turn? Maybe Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum? The NBA's Western Confe…
 
Last season the Utah Jazz won 50 games and looked like a team on the rise with Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert leading the way. This summer Utah may not have landed the biggest names, but it had one of the best summers of any team trading for Mike Conley and getting Bojan Bogdanovic in free agency. The Jazz are now a well rounded team with an elit…
 
It's easy to select James Harden or Stephen Curry with a high pick in your NBA Fantasy basketball draft, but who are the sleepers to grab in the later rounds? When do you spend a pick on Russell Westbrook in Houston or D'Angelo Russell in Golden State? After Karl-Anthony Towns, who are the centers you can trust to get you points? Tommy Beer of NBC …
 
There's a new sheriff in town in Washington, Tommy Sheppard has taken over as GM, but the big question remains: What's the plan? Trade Bradley Beal and go all-in on a rebuild? Or, re-tool on the fly and try to build around Beal? The latter seems to be the goal, Beal is not available in a trade and he wants to stay to try and get a supermax contract…
 
Kevin Durant is gone, switching coasts. Also gone are some of the veterans — Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston — that provided depth and continuity. Even gone is Oakland, with the Warriors moving into the brand new Chase Center in San Francisco this season. Everything feels different with the Golden State Warriors, but write them off at your own per…
 
Despite the fact that some of the best NBA players chose to sit out this World Cup — Anthony Davis, James Harden, Damian Lillard — as did the next tier of guys (Bradley Beal, Kevin Love), this was still a talented USA Basketball roster that was the tournament favorite. Then they got bounced by the French in the quarterfinals — Team USA will not eve…

LeBron James & Anthony Davis. Kawhi Leonard & Paul George. James Harden & Russell Westbrook. The wildest, most roller coaster summer ended up leaving the NBA looking like a real-life version of NBA Jam with elite duos all over the league. Not just the guys who changed teams, but returning combos such as Stephen Curry & Draymond Green or Nikola Joki…
 
Kawhi Leonard will tip the balance of power in the NBA with his decision. Torn Achilles or not, Kevin Durant has suitors lined up around the block to give him max money — and he may not meet with any of them. Will Jimmy Butler take the fifth year with the Sixers? Will Philly put that on the table for Butler, and what about Tobias Harris? Is Kemba W…
 
Zion Williamson went No. 1, as he should. The Pelicans got the guy who could turn that franchise around (and maybe save the NBA in New Orleans). Ja Morant to the Grizzlies and R.J. Barrett to the Knicks at No.2 and 3 were expected and solid picks. But after that, in a flat 2019 NBA Draft, things got weird. Gonzaga's Rui Hachimura to the Wizards at …

The Golden State Warriors are looking to add to their legacy as one of the most dominant teams of an era in NBA history. The Toronto Raptors are in their first Finals ever but led by a guy who already has one Finals MVP trophy. The NBA Finals are here and it's a fascinating matchup. When does Kevin Durant return and how much does he change this ser…
 
Will Kyrie Irving stay in Boston? If not, what is Plan B? Is Jimmy Butler back in Philadelphia next season? If he is will Tobias Harris be back? What are the next steps to turn Denver into a contender. Kurt Helin of NBC Sports and Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports break down those three teams recently turned out of the playoffs. They also start off talki…
 
Toronto controlled the tempo when it mattered and — thanks to Kawhi Leonard — ground out a 7-game win against Philadelphia, but can they do the same thing against Milwaukee? Does Portland even stand a chance against Golden State? Does Durant missing the start of this series open the door even a little? Probably not on that last question, but Kurt H…
 
Watch the Game 7 coming up between Portland and Denver and you will see a few players — Seth Curry for the Blazers, Torrey Craig for Denver — contributing for their teams, guys who were not highly sought after lottery picks, they weren't drafted at all. How does a guy like that get noticed? How does a player not drafted in the first 45 (if at all) …
 
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks adjusted, Kyrie Irving and the Celtics can't score, and suddenly the Bucks are in charge up 3-1 and seem headed to the next round — this is the most clear cut, and still maybe the most interesting series of the second round. Then there is the back-and-forth series between Philadelphia and Toronto — where Kawhi Le…
 
Boston vs. Milwaukee. Philadelphia vs. Toronto. Houston vs. Golden State. The first round of the NBA playoffs had plenty of emotion — just ask Damian Lillard and Russell Westbrook — but it was short, with very possibly only one series going at least six games. The second round? That's not going to be so quick, and it is filled with even matchups th…
 
Can Indiana upset Boston? What about the Thunder as they take on the shorthanded Trail Blazers? And who comes out on top when Houston and Utah face off?

They also talk about the Basketball …

For the first time in more than a decade, is LeBron James not going to make All-NBA First Team? This year's NBA end of season awards have some challenging choices and debates, and Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports get into all of them.…
 
It's being treated as a foregone conclusion: The Golden State Warriors will be the NBA champions. Again. A three-peat and four-in-five years. It probably should be, but is there any team in the Western Conference that puts some fear in the hearts of the Warriors? What about Milwaukee or Boston out of the East? Mark Medina, Warriors beat writer for …
 
CJ McCollum was already out (maybe for the rest of the regular season) when Portland center and third-best player Jusuf Nurkic went down with a horrific leg injury. Where does that leave Damian Lillard and Portland heading into these playoffs? Have they become the team everyone else wants to face in the first round now? Beyond that, what happens th…

Zion Williamson, R.J. Barrett, and Cam Reddish of Duke are the big names, the top five pick stars we've watched all season. But what can they show us in the ACC and NCAA Tournament that will translate to the NBA? Just how good is Ja Morant? When watching Virginia, should I be focused on De'Andre Hunter? What can Jarrett Culver of Texas Tech bring t…
 
James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, or Paul George for MVP? What team is going to come out of the East? When Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, and the rest of the league's free agents are making their decisions next summer, will the Clippers dark past hurt their chances? Listeners asked those questions and more, and Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sp…
