BS of the Sun Podcast 10/8/15: Preseason basketball is here

New, comments

The Suns have officially started their preseason campaign with a victory over the Sacramento Kings... which finally gives us real (sort of) basketball to talk about.

That's an open look.

Kellan Olson joins the show this time around as we cover all the current Suns news.

The scrimmage at the Madhouse on McDowell stirred up memories for many older fans in attendance. The actual basketball played was fairly vapid, but I managed to keep busy by scrutinizing the mannerisms and wardrobe of Markieff Morris. There was a large contingent of young fans at the game, too, and the Suns players didn't disappoint by staying well after the game to sign autographs. Should this be an annual ritual?

Kellan breaks down the Suns first preseason game against the Kings and how Jon Leuer doesn't appear to be conceding the the backup four minutes to Mirza Teletovic.

Rollin J. Mason's SB Nation Suns Season Preview was such a good read that Kellan and I discussed its finer points. Listen to what we think of the overall roster moves, strengths, weaknesses and team goals.

The topic of the Brandon Knight/Lakers first round pick trade will surely pop up this season, probably more prominently if the Suns struggle and the pick falls into the mid lottery. Have Suns fans already reconciled this situation, or is there still a chance of buyer's remorse settling in?

Finally, the last line I read out of Vegas has the Suns over/under at 36.5 wins. Does that sound high, low, or just about right?

Enjoy.
