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.”
VERY COOL…..the Aaron Torres Podcast from the KSR Podcast Network gets a shout out from Around the Horn

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.
