Sports Section Episode 32: NBA Draft Week, Baby!

NBA Draft

It’s an all-NBA episode as the boys dive deep into one of our favorite parts of the NBA season, the draft. We break down which players we’d most like to see the Timberwolves take at pick 20, and experiment with a little “would you/wouldn’t you” about certain names (not to be a spoiler but Grayson Allen). Noah floats potential trade packages for Andrew Wiggins, Sam challenges the guys on the Golden State Warriors’ title, and much more. https://media.blubrry.com/mnsportssection/mnsportssection.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/SportsSectionEpisode32.mp3 As always, thanks for listening!
