    I’m just happy that the whole “Brandon Johns playing the 5” thing is (likely) over. I think he can have a big year

    Can’t imagine any good reason for Johns to be used at the 5. With Teske, Castelton and Davis/Faulds, the 5 is as well manned as at any time in the Beilein era, and Johns is certainly not a natural at that position.

    IMO there will be players that flourish under Juwan Howard… could be Johns or Nunez or whoever your guess is as good as mine…

    Will Brendan’s new podcast with Nick interfere with The Moving Screen at all since there’ll definitely be come content overlap?

  5. umhoops

    Nope, business as usual for our pod right now.

    Brendan’s pod with Nick, from what I understand, is going to be more episode based than time based. Not so much a ramble about the last week’s events (as our podcast currently is) but something you could pick up and listen to at any time. Recapping something in history, an in-depth conversation with someone, stuff like that.

    Don’t want to speak for them, but that’s what I understand about the format, etc. Don’t expect there will be much overlap.
