Locked On NBA – Daily Podcast On The National Basketball Association

Mar 20 2023 • 37 mins

Jackson Gatlin (@JTGatlin) is joined by Keith Pompey (@Locked On Sixers) to discuss the Philadelphia 76ers eight game winning streak and Joel Embiid jumping ahead of Denver Nuggets' Nikola Jokic in the latest NBA MVP standings. How dominant has Embiid been during the win streak? What more does Embiid need to do to lock up the MVP award? What is the best role for Tyrese Maxey, starting or coming off the bench? How impactful is PJ Tucker despite not being much of a scoring threat? How will the Sixers postseason impact Doc Rivers' future? Then John Karalis (@Locked On Celtics) stops by to break down Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics recent struggles, including losses to the Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz. Why has the Celtics offense plummeted here in March? What's going on with Jayson Tatum's three-point shot? How important should seeding be to Boston? What is the biggest question for the Celtics heading into the postseason? What's the latest update on Robert Williams III? Lastly, Rafael Barlowe (@Locked On NBA Big Board) jumps in to talk about the new debate amongst NBA Draft experts about who should go No. 2 overall in this year's draft between G League Ignite's Scoot Henderson or Alabama's Brandon Miller. Why is Scoot no longer the consensus No. 2 pick? Were experts too quick to calling Scoot a "generational" talent? What makes Miller a more enticing prospect? Is Scoot sitting out the remainder of the G League season the right decision? How many teams would be willing to pass on Scoot at No. 2 in favor of Miller being a better fit? #Sixers #Celtics #NBADraft Subscribe to the Locked On NBA YouTube Channel: Locked On NBA Follow/Subscribe/Listen Anywhere: Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! | Offers: Built Bar – Built Bar is a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar.
