Topics for this episode include:

After unrolling its new Player Participation Policy, the NBA conveniently says it now has data suggesting load management doesn’t help prevent injuries
Will this lead to tangible changes regarding player rest or simply more transparency from teams?
The most interesting and biggest swing players for the coming season:
Can Jordan Poole get back on track in the low-stakes environment of Washington?
What does Chris Paul bring to Golden State, and what sacrifices might he need to make there?
Austin Reaves has the power to keep the Lakers in the title mix during LeBron’s twilight years
Why Chet Holmgren and Victor Wembanyama look like the pot of gold at the end of the NBA’s skilled-big-man rainbow, and how Holmgren can make an impact for a fringe contender right off the bat
Where does Evan Mobley need to improve, and how will Cleveland’s roster tweaks change things for him at both ends of the floor?
What does Minnesota need from Jaden McDaniels offensively?
How improved conditioning can help turn Scottie Barnes into something akin to a point guard
