The Prez Has Returned!

Yes, D-League President, Dan Reed is back on The NBA Breakdown! It's always fun having him on the program. He'll discuss many things including the new D-League season and why "The Armadillos" wouldn't be such a good name for the new Frisco, Texas expansion team which is coming out next season.

One of the other things Dan will talk about is the 1st overall pick of the 2009 D-League draft, Albuquerque Thunderbirds forward, Carlos Powell.

Carlos will also join us on the show. He used to play some professional ball in Portugal, so he'll try to speak a little Portuguese for us.

You can watch him on the court and any other D-League player or team on The NBA Futurecast! You'll get to see free "live" D-League games all season! Check it out!

A Jazz Theme

The Utah Jazz have been one of the more consistent teams in the Northwest division over the course of the last decade or so.

As I see things, it all starts up top with Jerry Sloan, their Hall of Fame head coach.

Jerry has been at the helm for over 20 years and it`s a good thing that the Jazz organization re-uped his contract.

He`s an intense, gritty hard nosed coach that demands much from his players and you know what - they respond!

Dave and I thought that it was only fitting to catch up with our pal, Spencer Hall, proprietor of Salt City Hoops and a proud member of the ESPN True Hoop Network to chat all things Jazz related.

Spencer shared his thoughts on the impact of Jerry Sloan, the recent play of Carlos Boozer and the retirement of Matt Harpring AKA Little Jerry.

Check it out!
