Breaking Down the 2011 NBA Conference Finals (AUDIO)

I recently appeared on two sports radio stations, discussing the NBA's conference finals, and taking a glance ahead at the upcoming NBA Draft in June.

The first interview was with ESPN Radio 680 in Louisville, with Andy Sweeney. Andy and I discussed the issues surrounding Russell Westbrook, specifically his shoot-first mentality and how head coach Scott Brooks is handling it.

We also discussed the substantial impact Udonis Haslem has had for the Heat with both his scoring ability and rebounding prowess.

In the second interview with Mark Carman of 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City, I broke down the terrific adjustments Erik Speolstra made after Game 1 and how they've helped Miami win the past two. Specifically, we talked about why Spoelstra was smart because he 'listened to my advice.'

In addition, I broke down some of the marquee prospects in the draft, including the potential of Duke's Kyrie Irving as well as the Morris twins from Kansas.
