Travis and I kick off this week’s podcast by talking about the toughest stretches in the schedule, national television games, how the Pelicans might fare in a late-season playoff push and what the Pelicans’ ceiling and floor could be.
We next discuss the signing of Jahlil Okafor and where he stands in the training camp competition to come at center. The 22-year-old, No. 3 pick of 2015 still has time to change his narrative, but will he be able to do it in New Orleans? He’s certainly off to a jaw-dropping start.
My summer of transformation: First off I want to thank @idanwan & @dzandertraining for getting after it with me the moment my season ended. Grateful to have two of the best in their respective fields work with me all summer. Although the physical changes in this photo are evident, their has been extreme growth unbenounced to the eye. I’ve learned how to identify and manage different stressors such as anxiety. Learning how to identify certain stressors has also allowed me to over come them. Often times because of my size and profession people may view me in a certain way, but in reality I deal with the same struggles as countless others. Mental health awareness is a cause I will fight for the rest of my life and if you’re struggling today don’t be afraid to speak with someone and seek help. I would like to thank @kevinlove and the @playerstribune for helping me identify my feelings and informing me what I was dealing with was in fact normal. 6 weeks left in the off season; with a lot more work to do!
Lastly, we try to solve the wing problem — giving our two cents on which camp body might make the roster and what the true answer at SF should be moving forward. Will E’Twaun Moore remain at the three? Can Solomon Hill surprise us? How about a Mirotic-Randle-AD trio?
