In King James Gossip’s newest episode, we dive into who should be the Cleveland Cavaliers top priority in the upcoming NBA Draft. That and much more.

Since the Cleveland Cavaliers have been off for just over a week, instead of talking about how their season is going like usual, we take a dive into their draft prospects and what we learned from the all-star weekend.

That said, let’s get into the podcast and how it breaks down into four different segments.

  • The first segment starts with talk about the all-star weekend. LeBron James and his 29 points were the highlights of the all-star weekend. Larry Nance Jr. also did a terrific job in the dunk contest with arguably the best dunk of the night. To add to that, we get into just how the new format enhanced the way players perform and what the game means to them.
  • Following that, we get into our main topic, the 2018 NBA Draft. The Cavs are almost guaranteed to get a top 10 pick which allows them to take a look at prospects that they haven’t even thought of for the last four years. That said, two of the three agreed that Jaren Jackson Jr., a sophomore at Michigan State, should be the Cavs top option. Other options should include Trae Young and Marvin Bagley.
  • Then, we get into our game time with our fact or fiction segment. With five questions attempting to stump the audience, you’ll have to let us know if you get all five correct without help from the internet!
  • To end our 11th episode, we take a look at what’s on the slate for the Cleveland Cavaliers this upcoming week. With one set of back-to-back games this next week, we are all in resounding agreement on what the outcome should be. Do you agree?
