J.R. Smith hasn't been the only J.R. enjoying some time off this summer, as we haven't had a Fear the Sword podcast since the Cleveland Cavaliers clinched their first ever World Championship. It only seemed right that the podcast returns with a special episode to reward those that have been waiting for some new content.
We were lucky enough to have former Olympian and member of Team Canada's Men's National Team Dwight Walton on the podcast to discuss playing in the Olympics, playing with Steve Nash, the state of basketball in Canada, Tristan Thompson's progression and playing overseas.
Dwight also is an insider for TSN, the Canadian ESPN affiliate and provided his take on the upcoming season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Golden State Warriors and provided his pick to win it all this season.
