Episode details

Painter opens the episode with some short-lived karaoke before discussing what extra benefits he would like if he was signed to a massive college coaching contract. Justin talks about Sea World and Toomer’s lemonade.

Fortunately for everyone listening, the next hour of the show is all about Thursday night’s NBA Draft, where Jabari Smith and Walker Kessler look to make Auburn basketball history and find out where their professional careers will start.

The guys talk Smith’s chances of going No. 1 overall, his fit with the Orlando Magic and what would happen if he were to “fall” to the Oklahoma City Thunder at No. 2. Then it’s a breakdown of the post-lottery teams who could snag Kessler, with a few major players standing out above the rest.
