We get back to the offseason reviews and head to the Western Conference for the first time with the Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets. Dallas didn't make big changes, but brought in some interesting low-risk/high-reward players. Denver made very few changes. But the ones they made were big, as Danilo Gallinari is out and Paul Millsap is in. If you enjoy the show and want to show some support, please leave us a 5 star rating and review!

The Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers swung a massive trade that saw Kyrie Irving dealt for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the 2018 Brooklyn Nets 1st round pick. Pete Toal and Keith Smith break down the trade from angles, both for this coming season and the future!

In this episode we review the offseasons for the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bulls have seemingly turned towards rebuilding after trading Jimmy Butler for younger talent. What will the new additions bring to the Windy City? The Cavaliers look largely the same, minus swapping out some bench veterans for other bench veterans. The Kyrie Irving drama still lingers and we touch on that as well. If you enjoy the show, please give us a 5 star rating and review. It will really help us out a lot!

We continue our 2017 offseason review series with a double dip! First up we talk the Nets, who made several big trades, as they continue a rebuild that started without much to rebuild with. Then we dive deep into the Hornets and what the Dwight Howard acquisition might mean for them, including how it might impact their starting lineup and rotation.
