To the annals of great double discs like All Eyez on Me and Life After Death, Basketball Prospectus's Kevin Pelton and I proudly submit this super duper double dip season preview edition of The Dontonio Wingcast.  

Excited that the NBA season is finally underway? We are too.  So we are dropping double the talk and double the nerdiness this week. That's right: two episodes of the Wingcast for the same free price of one.  You gotta love it.
