listening to the Kyrie episode of JJ Redick's podcast and kyrie is a weirdo. anyway in a snippet of it JJ said the rim on one side of the court (at the England arena) was crooked. 76ers shot well in the first half and Boston in the 2nd half. idk thought that was interesting

Spottie, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:02 (four years ago) link

the minn broadcast team is good like everyone says. i actually learn stuff from those guys.

call all destroyer, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:04 (four years ago) link

yeah i like them. i like the pdx team as well.

Spottie, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:19 (four years ago) link

So my top pods are:

listen to every one p much
Lowe Post
Woj Pod
House of Strauss – New pod with Ethan Strauss and his wife Allie (some hoops but kind of all over the place)
JJ Redick
bill simmons when he has hoops talk
warriors plus/minus with tim kawakami and marcus thompson

listen to some but not all
The Ringer NBA show — with Network and those peeps
Talk Hoops with Zach Harper
Basketball Friends — Haberstroh and other people
Open Floor: SI's NBA Show — Ben Golliver & Andrew Sharp
The Hoop Collective — all kind of espn writers
RealGM Radio — Danny Leroux pod

i love the basketball jones/the starters weekly pod, but I could understand if it is way too silly for some. Road trippin is occasionally entertaining. The Ringer's NBA pods should be much better than they are. Give Shea Serrano a podcast, simmons!

Spottie, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 19:08 (four years ago) link

it was p good. but they are mostly talking midseason awards or w/e. think lowe is going on simmons' pod tomorrow.

my fav hoops pod rn is brian windhorst's espn pod w/ the other espn basketball ppl. it's basically the old truehoop podcast but w/ all good/smart writers and no "personalities" like amin or the more talk radio-ish guys that used to be on the truehoop pods. windhorst is kind of a garbage writer but as a moderator of conversation he's good bcuz he is very very knowledgeable about the league.

J0rdan S., Sunday, 17 March 2019 20:18 (three years ago) link

i listen to it cause brian is good but i actually hate the combinations of guests who rarely seem to have any chemistry. other than bontemps whose grumpiness i enjoy they can be a drag.

call all destroyer, Sunday, 17 March 2019 21:06 (three years ago) link

it's a little worse now bcuz jackie macmullan is out... sometimes it's a weird crew. kirk goldsberry in partic is not very good.

clown shit

sure did.

my logic is clear: i'm not complaining if i get a *really* good player, even if someone drafted later turns out better.

i grew up in houston. no one ever said "should've taken jordan." ayton ain't olajuwon, but luka ain't mike, so i think the analogy holds. https://t.co/z2JHzdq87G

correct

k3vin k., Tuesday, 17 May 2022 21:38 (three months ago) link

I generally don't follow the drafts, was Ayton considered a bad pick at the time?

frogbs, Tuesday, 17 May 2022 21:40 (three months ago) link

he was the consensus top pick m/l but with a ton of the more informed people saying hey you might want to check out this kid who won the euroleague mvp at 19

lag∞n, Tuesday, 17 May 2022 21:46 (three months ago) link

the really crazy pick was bagley at 2

lag∞n, Tuesday, 17 May 2022 21:47 (three months ago) link

tho when you consider the ancient balkan blood feud aspect it starts to make sense

lag∞n, Tuesday, 17 May 2022 21:50 (three months ago) link

there was lots of talking head types being like "well you can't pass up a 7 footer this skilled!" ayton also put up legit good stats at arizona, and there was the local angle, he seemed like a pretty safe pick (which has turned out to be true) and because luka was not in our faces the way american prospects are where lots of ppl feel like they have informed opinions i think the feeling was mostly "hey can't blame them for picking ayton." i don't remember there being tons of prominent voices being like "this will be a disastrous decision that the suns will regret for decades." people *did* say that about the kings and the hawks, but i think ayton seemed like "modern" enough of a center that the suns generally were given a pass pretty much up until two days ago

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 17 May 2022 21:52 (three months ago) link

it was a classic example of picking fit over best player available. the suns had book so they needed to pair him w a center. it is interesting to think about booker and luka on the court together. seems like a match made in heaven, booker is better off ball.

Spottie, Tuesday, 17 May 2022 21:55 (three months ago) link

― lag∞n, Tuesday, May 17, 2022 5:47 PM (five minutes ago)

if i'm not mistaken it seemed like they were insulted by whatever interactions they were having w/ luka and perhaps some of the other top guys and really gravitated towards bagley because he told the kings he would be excited to be picked by them. which turned out to be a career killing decision for him, but the kings never seemed to stop and think like "maybe this guy is happy to get picked by us because nobody else in their right minds would draft him number 2."

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 17 May 2022 21:56 (three months ago) link

reportedly divac also doesnt like lukas dad

lag∞n, Tuesday, 17 May 2022 22:02 (three months ago) link

i wanna say there was a number of guys in that draft who refused to work out for the kings, shit like that. bagley was the guy who was like "i would LOVE to be drafted number 2 overall even if it's by the kings!"

a guy like nikola mirotic was putting up numbers half as good at age 24 that luka was at 18

in places all over the world, real stuff be happening (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 17 May 2022 22:35 (three months ago) link

yeah it actually makes for a more stable projection than college. teams just invented reasons not to draft him, didn’t think he was athletic enough, stuff like that. really should’ve been one of the easiest picks in draft history. again i give the mavs front office a lot of credit for betting on luka to the tune of 2 first round picks when everyone else around them didn’t even wanna draft him period. and of course 2 first round picks for luka now looks like one of the heists of the century, i don’t think you could legally trade enough first round picks to even acquire luka at this point, i think he’s quite literally untradeable. i have no idea what you could even come up with to give the mavs to even make them consider trading him.

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 17 May 2022 22:57 (three months ago) link

that’s the thing. with a lot of euro prospects, you’re projecting future production from young guys who barely see the floor but doncic was just as young as many of those highly-drafted projects and he was the literal mvp
