In Episode 28 of the Valley of the Suns Podcast, guest Kevin Zimmerman joins to talk about the race for the 1-seed, Cam Johnson’s shooting slump and “Star Wars: The Bad Batch.”

Welcome, Valley Boyz and Girlz, to another episode of the Valley of the Suns Podcast!

In Episode 28, host Gerald Bourguet is joined by Kevin Zimmerman of Arizona Sports to discuss the latest with the Phoenix Suns, including the race for the 1-seed, Cameron Johnson’s shooting slump and potential playoff concerns, as well as the latest Disney+ offering, Star Wars: The Bad Batch.

To start the show, Bourguet and Zimmerman take a look at the Suns’ chances of stealing the 1-seed back from the Utah Jazz by examining the teams’ remaining schedules, as well as what first- and second-round matchups could await Phoenix depending on where everyone lands.

Next, Cam Johnson’s ongoing shooting slump is a topic of concern, and the duo debates how the sharpshooter can get out of his recent funk. The conversation the segues into other potential causes for concern heading into the Suns’ first postseason in 11 years, including some shaky bench play of late.

Finally, for our latest G-Rated segment, the two dive into the familiar-yet-different premiere of Star Wars: The Bad Batch and what to expect from this new series moving forward.
