Ivan sadly could not make this pod, so we called up our good buddy David Naylor, from Canis Hoopus, to talk some hoops. Because Ivan was gone, things obviously went a little haywire. IVAAAAAAN! DON’T LEAVE US TO OUR OWN DEVICES!!!!!

So, I apologize for the slight distortion on my voice, I had my mic input up way too high and didn’t realize until we’d already recorded. My bad. Also, I apologize for all the bad jokes and meandering conversations.

Let’s get to it!

[Annotated list of things we discussed:]

0:05 - Welcome David!

2:00 - We talked about musical conservatories for a while and David’s forthcoming masters degree. Don’t mind us. That’s how we roll. #basketball

5:55 - Nate is the most secretive person in the world.

8:25 - Nate just wanted David on the pod so we could ramble incoherently without Ivan shutting us down.

10:10 - Timberwolves Twitter political leanings.

10:45 - Timberwolves vs. Warriors recap, wherein we all fell asleep and Nate was drunk at the game.

12:30 - Similarities between Warriors of old and Timberwolves of present. Aka, being exciting but not making playoffs and not having super high picks in the draft.

15:30 - “Who would you rather draft in a redraft? Ricky Rubio, Johnny Flynn, or Stephen Curry?” “This is where we need the Ivan bat signal.”

17:00 - Hilarious David Kahn story from David. “Did you murder him?” [...] “Oh, I could totally fight David Kahn.” It’s the Flynn pick.

21:50 - David turns into a crazed robot. Seriously.

22:30 - We may or may not have edited a bunch of stuff out due to technical difficulties. Also, lots of #giggles.

23:30 - “What kind of shape are the Warriors in heading into the playoffs?” We are professional.

29:45 - Harrison Barnes is the most Iowa player of all time. As in, boring.

30:15 - Harrison Barnes will be a better politician than a basketball player.

31:00 - Is Andrew Wiggins more like Barnes or Kawhi Leonard?

36:00 - Will the Timberwolves ever challenge the Warriors, assuming Durant and Curry both stay?

38:00 - Nate and Bram stan for the Wolves harder than even David.

40:30 - Amazing that people ever thought they would trade Ricky Rubio for Derrick Rose. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

41:00 - Ricky Rubio is hella young.

45:00 - What will happen in this year’s playoffs?

55:00 - Oh god, a heroin analogy.

1:00:00 - David throw in one last 3-1 joke.
