Grind City Media’s Kelcey Wright Johnson and Jon Roser make their boldest predictions yet for the NBA’s Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, and Sacramento Kings to have breakout seasons and why months in advance to Opening Night.
Grind City Media’s 3-Point Stance segment is a Skype-styled conversation between 2 friends, with 2 perspectives, on 3 topics from the weekend centered on sports, entertainment and pop-culture presented by MTN Dew. On Episode 74, Jon Roser and Meghan Triplett discuss:
0:17 Memphis Grizzlies
The Grizzlies lost a close one to the red hot Golden State Warriors over the weekend after dropping the lead after coming back from down 17, solidifying themselves in the #9 seed. What does this say about Dillon Brooks contribution to the team and what is the Grizzlies ceiling heading into the play-in?
4:53 New York Knicks
With the 2020-21 NBA regular season officially over, what team or teams surprised you the most?
7:24 HOT TAKES
Finally, Meghan and Roser close out the segment giving their hot takes (and wildly unpopular opinions) on how the playoffs will playoff and into next NBA season like Kawhi Leonard’s next move and the Boston Celtics missing the playoffs.
The shortened 2020 NBA Free Agency period has produced a lot of movement amongst players going to new teams as well as some emotional re-signings for those wishing to stay. Grind City Media’s Kelcey Wright Johnson and Jon Roser discuss which teams they believe made the biggest pickups this offseason to include Seth Curry to the Philadelphia 76ers, Tristan Thompson to the Boston Celtics, Chris Paul to the Phoenix Suns, and others.
On today’s edition of Talkin’ Grizz, Kelcey Wright Johnson is joined by Tom Westerholm, the Boston Celtics beat writer for MassLive. The pair discuss what Boston’s options are with their three picks in the 2020 draft; #14 (via Memphis Grizzlies), #26, and #30 (via Milwaukee Bucks). Tom gives his take on whether trading up or keeping the picks is the better bet for this Celtics roster.
