Podcast: FSU to play in an NBA like bubble?

Plus Scottie Barnes, Sardaar Calhoun, and a whole lot of NBA Draft talk

NCAA Basketball: North Florida at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a while since the last hoops podcast (APPLE // SPOTIFY), but real sports being on television has inspired the crew to talk some hoops. The void of sports has actually lured Michael into paying attention to the NBA, so we lead with some bubble talk - not the NCAA Tournament bubble where FSU used to find itself annually, but the NBA bubble which is providing a model for executing a full college basketball season. Obviously you can’t pack 353 Division I teams into a Disney bubble for four months, but you can take away bits and pieces to make the season work.

Next we delve into the draft now that the lottery order has been decided. The ‘Noles have never had two lottery picks in the same year, and have to go back to 1993 to have two first rounders. Now the Seminoles have a shot to be the only team in the nation with two lotto picks in the October draft.

From there we move on to the current team. Are there lotto picks on this team? 1st rounders? 2nd rounders?

To wrap it up we can’t resist looking ahead to the 2021 class. Everyone wants 2020 to be over (1* year for sure) so for fun we talk about some of those players, including the intriguing skill-sets of Bryce McGowens and John Butler.

As always please rate us 5*s on Apple to help spread the word and go ‘Noles.
