Weekly Run podcast: NBA2K ratings, the Rockets-Suns trade, Manu’s legacy, Rudy vs. Dwight

Scott Sommerdorf | The Salt Lake Tribune Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (27) defends against Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard (8) during first half play. The Jazz held a 40-30 lead over the Atlanta Hawks during first half play, Friday November 25, 2016.

On this week’s episode of the Weekly Run podcast, hosts Andy Larsen and Tony Jones have some NBA things to discuss. In particular, the Jazz’s NBA2K ratings have drawn our ire. We also discuss the Houston/Phoenix trade, and how it impacts the Western Conference, and we briefly chat about Jazz assistant general manager Justin Zanik’s candidacy for the Philadelphia GM job, before moving on to questions of legacy: how does Manu Ginobili compare to Dirk Nowitzki? And how does prime Dwight Howard compare to Rudy Gobert?
