KSR’s “The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast”; Featured on “Around the Horn”

What was your Tuesday like? A little trip to the office, feigning interest in your coworker’s relationship drama, “forgetting” to reply to an e-mail from your boss – turning on ESPN and seeing KSR prominently featured?

Just a typical Tuesday – at least in KSR-land, where KSR’s “Aaron Torres Sports Podcast” was prominently featured on ESPN’s “Around the Horn” Tuesday afternoon. The topic came from Aaron’s interview with Enes Kanter last week, when Enes – among many topics – discussed NBA “super teams.”

Here is what Enes had to say on the Warriors, and whether they are ruining the NBA:

“They are very good. Very, very good. They aren’t doing anything illegal. It’s like a chess game. They move the right piece and then they win it all. Everybody else can do it.

“[But] I wish it wasn’t like this. Because now you can already [know] who’s going to win. Who’s going to play for the East-West Championships [conference finals].

 “That’s it. There are five teams, Houston, Lakers, Golden State, Philly, Boston, that’s it. And there aren’t any other teams.

“People are saying they’re kind of ruining the league, I can a little bit agree with that.”

The “Around the Horn” crew then went on to debate whether what Kanter said had merit and… well, it’s all really a blur from there. The audio is above, but it cut off shortly after the topic was introduced on the show.

Still it highlights what a phenomenal interview it was with Kanter who was truly open and honest about everything – including his time at Kentucky, getting screwed by the NCAA, his early thoughts on Kevin Knox and the Knicks, and why yes, super teams are ruining the NBA.

    So….Enes admits the Knicks have no shot too? That’s not a great look…especially since they just drafted another fellow UK guy.

    Good point except that the Lakers, 76ers, Celtics, and Rockets aren’t super teams. Most of these teams aren’t even close.
