There is no easing into the NBA season.

One week into the grind we have Stephen Curry with a fractured hand (on a block/charge play worth discussing), which is bad news but clarifies the path forward in Golden State.

Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns are suspended (this podcast was recorded before the news came down, but we discuss the situation).

And the first week saw surprises — players such as Trae Young in Atlanta, and Pascal Siakam in Toronto made leaps. There there are teams such as Miami playing well and Sacramento... what happened to them?

Keith Smith from Yahoo Sports joins me to break down the wild first week of the season.
