Off the top of the show, the trio discuss how Valanciunas would match up with other big men in the playoffs (6:15).

Later the guys discuss if owell’s contract extension was a bad gamble by Masai Ujiri (23:30).

At the end of the podcast, they discuss who the most valuable part of the “bench mob” is (36:15).
