HoopSpeak Live 30: The Clips

On today’s HoopSpeak Live, we discussed an NBA season that is just THREE DAYS AWAY. Get excited. Do a dance. Buy the 2011-2012 edition of Pro Basketball Prospectus because you want to be as smart as Kevin Pelton. And, obviously, watch our show, which features interviews with Pelton himself and Howard Beck of The New York Times. Ethan had to miss this one, so Tom Haberstroh of The Heat Index jumped aboard as a guest host. Here are the clips:
