Here are some highlights from the show:

The Juice Online: Tyler Ennis called himself the best point guard of the 2014 class in an interview last week. Do you agree?

Ryan BlakeThat’s a confident comment and good for him. You want a point guard that’s confident, but in this draft, there’s a lot of good point guards. And in this draft, I call it the BPA, the best player available. And it’s also the old cliche that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. You and I and many of your friends could sit in a room and talk about who is the best player and none of us would be wrong. But what Ennis brings, he offers something rare. Consistency. Efficiency and steadiness. He’s a no mistake type of guy. He can score. He can pass. He can defend. He’s a crafty point guard that can see the floor well. And depending on what team, system, culture, I don’t know if he’ll be the first point guard drafted, but he’s definitely coveted.
