PBT Podcast: Nets drama, NBA surprise teams, and Christmas music

Kurt Helin and Corey Robinson debate when it is appropriate to begin playing Christmas music during the holiday season.

When is it time to start playing Christmas music? After Thanksgiving? Is there ever a time not to play Christmas music?

Sure, there is a lot of NBA news that Corey Robinson of NBC Sports and myself get into, including Steve Nash being out and Kyrie Irving Tweeting out another distraction in Brooklyn, but music draws some focus in this episode of the PBT Podcast.

Corey’s Juke Box is back with a song — from an opera — for Irving, plus some classic Marvin Gaye for the Pistons. Then there is the Christmas music discussion.

Also on tap is a discussion of the biggest surprises this young season, and how Zion Williamson has become a bigger threat with the addition of passing to his game.
