Pat Williams, senior vice president of the Orlando Magic, joins Matt this week to discuss a variety of NBA topics. He comments on Gregg Popovich’s decision to send four players home last week just before a game, offers thoughts on the impact David Stern’s retirement will have on the league and talks about the season outlook for the Suns and the Magic. Plus, hear all about his latest book: NBA List Jam!
Among his observations:
On Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich sending four players home just before a game last week: “I think the league handled it the right way. You just can’t do that.”
On the Phoenix Suns outlook: “They have some nice, young pieces, but it’s going to take time to pull it all together. So, I think Orlando and Phoenix are definitely kind of on the same path here and are two evenly matched teams.”
On David Stern retiring: “I guess we weren’t surprised. We had heard rumors about it, but that’s going to be a tough loss.”
