Miss this week’s episodes of The Step Back’s Day-to-Day NBA podcast? Catch up with the Weekend Review, a compilation of what we talked about during the week. It’s perfect for weekend listening.

First, we look at how Eastern Conference teams are faring compared to their preseason win projections with Nothing But Nylon host Kevin Ferrigan. We look at which Eastern Conference teams are better than projected, about where they were expected to be, or are worse than expected.

Then we discuss how wonderful Nikola Jokic is to watch, the NBA being in a period of experimentation, the unicorns of the league, and why the Denver Nuggets can’t seem to get it together with Adam Mares of Denver Stiffs.

We talk about where the Atlanta Hawks are two years since five players were named Eastern Conference Player of the Month, amid a 19-game winning streak and a 60-win season, with Brad Rowland of Peachtree Hoops and Locked on Hawks.

And we conclude with Rich Kraetsch of the Over and Back Classic NBA Podcast discussing what the NBA’s 36-and-older players are up to so far this season — which ones are contributing, which ones are holding on, and which ones are keeping the bench warm.
