The #SoWizards podcast is back with Kevin Broom and new co-host Ron Oakes-Cunningham.

In this episode, Kevin and Ron revisit their preseason forecasts and whether or not the first two games has them rethinking things. Spoiler: Ron boosts his wins total while Kevin stands pat and generally tries to pour water on the flames of optimism.

They theorize on the correlation between bald spots and basketball greatness (it’s stronger than you think — Kingpin was probably a baller before he got fat), dive in on the first two games, get nerdy about the Wizards defense, and spend a bunch of time talking about Kyle Kuzma’s star patina.

They also talk about career trajectories and whether load management, improved training techniques and modern medicine means players have longer careers and extended peaks. And they make some predictions about this week’s gauntlet for the Wizards:

Critical question: When the season is over, will Kevin owe Ron a six-pack of Corona or will Ron be buying Kevin a bottle of red?
