In anticipation of the start of the 2021-22 NBA season, Logan and Raja kick this momentous week off with a season preview (0:40). They name their playoff locks and fringe teams for the East and West (6:50), three teams they’re concerned about (16:25), and three teams they’re higher and lower on than consensus (27:47). Then they do some quick-hitter questions, including whether Ben Simmons and Giannis Antetokounmpo will take and make 3s this season (38:22), whether Damian Lillard, Simmons, or Bradley Beal will get traded (43:35), which new head coach will have the greatest impact on their team (46:45), and the likelihood of a Lakers-Warriors Western Conference final (49:35).
