The San Antonio Spurs played basketball this week, but it was hard to pay attention to any of that in the wake of the shocking death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant.
Big Fundamental Podcast host Jackson Floyd is joined by KENS 5 Sports Anchor Evan Closky to look back at the week that's unfurled across the NBA as teams, players, and fans honor The Black Mamba.

Wednesday night marked the NBA debut of Zion Williamson, and for most of the night... well, he looked more like Zi-off. Fortunately for the Spurs, the Silver and Black were able to withstand the 17-point 4th quarter explosion from the rookie and take home a much-needed victory.
For now, the Spurs sit in the 8th spot in the Western Conference standings, but a major decision looms - do they trade DeMar or LaMarcus, or stay the course with their two superstars and risk one of them walking away and leaving the team empty-handed. The podcast goes "batty" discussing the different scenarios, as well as the overused phrase "expressed interest" that appears at trade time.
Also, is Giannis Antetokounmpo going to finish his career as the GOAT? And should James Harden stop jacking up three-pointers? It's all in the name of Big Fun in this week's episode of The Big Fundamental Podcast!

In this episode, the Big Fun Pod discusses Spurs forward DeMar DeRozan's Jordan-eqsue performance over the last 12 games and whether it will make an impact on his potential NBA All-Star status. The pod also looks at why the Spurs haven't been able to capitalize on DeRozan's hot streak and win more games.
The pod shifts to the return of top rookie Zion Williamson, who is expected to make his regular-season NBA debut against the Spurs January 22. Will his return make a difference in this game - and the Pelicans season as a whole?
Things get batty when discussing big man Jakob Poeltl's future with the Silver & Black, and what it'll cost the team to keep arguably their best rim protector and a key to their young core. But it's all in the name of Big Fun in this week's episode!

It’s a cliché to say that you need to take a step back to go forward, but the Spurs have moved into the modern-day NBA with a literal step back.
Big Fun Pod host Jackson Floyd is joined by KENS 5 Sports Anchor Evan Closky and Digital Sports Reporter David Flores to talk about this new-look Spurs, and what impact the changes made to this team could have on their playoff seeding.
Then the conversation turns to the All-Star Game and whether we'll see a representative from the Silver & Black take part in the weekend's festivities.
And then the pod goes batty over Markelle Fultz and whether teams give up on their young stars too soon.
It's all in the name of Big Fun on this episode of the Big Fundamental Podcast!
