PBT Podcast: Talking Knicks, Heat, Lakers and some quality time with Adrian Wojnarowski

Dec 7, 2012, 2:08 PM EST

New York Knicks' J.R. Smith hangs on the rim after dunking in the second half as teammate Tyson Chandler and Miami Heat's Chris Bosh look on in their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to discuss the Knicks, following their big win over the Heat on Thursday.

We wonder if New York is for real, while breaking down what ails the Heat, and whether or not we believe Miami’s truly in trouble at this early stage of the season.

We also talk about the troubles in LakerLand, and discuss Pau Gasol and the reality of trade talks surrounding him. We finish things off with a Hack-a-Dwight discussion, as well as take a look at the Timberwolves and their prospects once Ricky Rubio returns next week.

All of that, plus we get some quality time with Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
