Relatively Speaking Podcast | NBA lottery mock and big Boston decision

Mark Halmas/Icon Sportswire

The Relatively Speaking Podcast is here to haunt your dreams like a bad horror movie from the 1980s. This edition of the podcast is a bit heavy with NBA, but there’s plenty of other random stuff to go around.

Ping pong balls fell in a certain way this week to make the upcoming 2017 NBA Draft as interesting as it has ever been. Couple that with one of the (projected) best classes in roughly a decade, and we have ourselves a ton of fun just ready to go.

What should the Boston Celtics do with the No. 1 overall pick? Is it better to see if the franchise can land a known superstar like a Jimmy Butler or a Paul George, or should the franchise punt for down the line by drafting in the position currently slotted?

Jared and Joseph both think the world of this draft class. With that being the case, and with the combine behind us, the dastardly duo attempt to mock draft the lottery selection portion of it. It is in a segment we call — the NBA lottery mock! Very original, we know.

After all the serious conversations are out of the way, it is off to the land of crowd-sourced content! Hip, hip hooray.

Questions were good this week.

How long is a second (really)?


If you feeling like a green animal that sometimes drinks tea and looks indifferent, jump to follow the guys on the mean streets of Twitter.

The other spawn of evil can be found @JosephNardone.
