Our leading (and only) basketball writer gives his, um, blunted, unconventional – and occasionally obsessively detailed – take on recent happenings in the hoops world.
Before I share the podcast summary from RapsRepub below, I want to plug TFQ’s Super Bowl Preview, which we will be releasing sometime in the next 24 hours for your reading pleasure. We dare you to find a more in-depth and unique preview of the big game, so be sure to check it out – and see my prediction for the winner.
Here’s what we riff on in this week’s ‘cast:
- Victories over Dallas, Philly and Brooklyn!
- Vince came back and why people insist we talk about him.
- TRoss goes for 51
- Jonas comes of age in Brooklyn
- Are we really still talking about trading Kyle Lowry?
- 2Pat: steal + hustle + shot = victory WOW!
- DeRozan’s injury and what that means moving forward
- NYK and BKN have woken up and there is now a race for the Atlantic Division
- Big week and road trip ahead. Den, Port, Utah, Sac, LAC.
- @PaulDawkins17 asks: Who are reasonable targets for Masai to pursue in free agency or offer sheets?
- @tweetputter asks: Steve – you’re the doctor, prescribe @JValanciunas exactly what he needs to become a top 5 C by 2016.
