The 4-Down Podcast, episode 27: Zach Lowe of The Point Forward
Are you tired of hearing about the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks? I thought Zach Lowe might. Zach heads up Sports Illustrated’s Point Forward NBA blog and is a former writer for ESPN TrueHoop Network site CelticsHub.
I figured Zach’s been writing enough about the Heat and Mavs the last few weeks that he’d be itching to chat about the Spurs and his Celtics. Unfortunately, I ran into a few snags getting things started and this week’s podcast is shorter than normal. We recorded before tip-off of Game 1 of the NBA Finals, so we were on a bit of a time crunch.
Luckily, 15 minutes or so from Zach is exactly the quality you would expect if you’ve been reading The Point Forward this season. Zach and I chatted about how long teams should hold on to hopes of contending for titles with older cores and if the NBA is a young player’s league or a veteran’s league. Lowe also gives us his quick thoughts on the Finals before Game 1 started.
Apologies for the shorter episode this week, but we should be back on track next week.
