Jeff and I are back together after Paul Garcia stepped in over the Thanksgiving weekend to talk about the end of the lockout.
To start the show, Jeff got my reaction to the news, what I'm looking forward to the most and who won and lost in the negotiations.
After a short break, Jeff and I turned our focus to San Antonio Spurs rookie point guard Cory Joseph. The rookie point guard will have a lot of pressure trying to fill George Hill's shoes as a primary backup at point guard. While I think he could use a little more seasoning and mentoring, Jeff says he thinks Joseph will be able to fill in fine and reminds us of another young rookie point guard who faced doubt early on.
Listen in on our discussion and weigh in with your opinions in the comments.

nice job, guys. as for the Cory Joseph debate, i would agree with Jeff. i have faith in Joseph to play back-up. we might not know him too well right now even after we drafted him months ago, but we really didn't know what we were getting out of George Hill when we drafted him because we didn't know him either. he might have to work on his offense, but he's not too bad as a defender, which that should earn him some brownie points from Pop.
I believe that RC Bruford wouldn't have even thought about Joseph if he didn't believe it was going to happen. I didn't agree with it at first, I've seen Joseph play, and he doesn't wow me away, but with Coach Pop anything is possible.
