Ja Morant Is the Most Fun Player to Watch in the NBA. Plus, Rule Changes and the Bulls’ Possibly Unsustainable Success.

KOC and Verno also run down some of the early season’s best dunks, including throwdowns by Jaylen Brown and Lauri Markkanen

Verno and KOC are back talking about the best games from this past week of basketball, starting with Bulls-Raptors and the question of whether the Bulls can sustain their current success (0:45) and Celtics-Hornets and how fantastic Ish Smith has been for Charlotte (7:45). Then they discuss the rule changes that have resulted in far less free throws for one James Harden (14:15), the incredible dunks from Jaylen Brown, Lauri Markkanen, and more (24:51), and Danny Ainge’s comments to Kendrick Perkins solidifying his commitment to Jaylen Brown (32:30). Finally, they take a look at some of the young guys who are popping off the screen early, including Jalen Green (35:24), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (39:15), and Ja Morant (44:00).
