Dave brings on friend of the pod John Schuhmann (twitter: @JohnSchuhmann) of to discuss his latest NBA Power Rankings, where he ranks the Suns #1 overall in the West despite a continued question mark in the areas of interior scoring and free throw attempts.

Topics on this episode include:

  • West playoff outlook — who’s a shoe-in and who’s on the Bubble
  • Which West lotto-projected teams could crash the party like the Suns did last year
  • How the Suns have stayed on top despite a quiet offseason
  • Whether a player like Thaddeus Young could improve the Suns significantly
