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 (six 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 (six years ago) link

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

Spottie, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:19 (six 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

Spottie, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:36 (six years ago) link

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!

I fully admit to watching the starters daily nba tv show most days please do not ban me

Clay, Saturday, 13 January 2018 05:13 (six years ago) link

lol those guys are living the life props to them for turning hoops fandom into a career. havent really listened to them since the TBJ days, I follow them all on twitter tho.

Spottie, Saturday, 13 January 2018 05:39 (six years ago) link

i can only (sporadically) get into the tv show around all-star game and playoffs, but yeah they are inspirations

while my dirk gently weeps (symsymsym), Saturday, 13 January 2018 05:56 (six years ago) link

I mostly like the constant dunking on leigh ellis and his constant Dad ways

Clay, Saturday, 13 January 2018 06:04 (six years ago) link

bill simmons on Lowe's pod just released, im sure to discuss the Rox/Clips dramz

Spottie, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 19:08 (six 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.

anyone watch the rachel nichols show the jump?

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 (five 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 (five 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.

J0rdan S., Sunday, 17 March 2019 22:49 (five years ago) link

windy is cool enough. he knows a lot for sure, seems really plugged in. i havent listened to his pod recently ill get back into it. dude lacks any sense of humor tho.

well…I think it was also a bit of a case of not understanding basic probability. even if the nuggets were the best team this year, which is arguable, they still had to make their way through a loaded west to even have the chance to play the celtics in the finals. you can hypothetically be a 3-1 favorite three series in a row and you’d still be well under 50% to make it through all three.

I do think the celtics were the best and most complete team, but their road to the finals was probably historically easy…something that’s been more or less the case for east champs for 25 years now. at some point someone should do something about this imo…

brony james (k3vin k.), Thursday, 13 June 2024 21:09 (one month ago) link

and it turned out it wasnt just the celtics path to the finals that was easy, the finals was easy too

lag∞n, Thursday, 13 June 2024 21:12 (one month ago) link

yeah I don’t want to get too much in the business of discounting individual championship runs, the celtics have def earned it this year. but there’s a pattern that seems like it’s bad for the league esp now that lebron is out of the east/irrelevant

brony james (k3vin k.), Thursday, 13 June 2024 21:14 (one month ago) link

on the other hand in the aforementioned 25 years, the east has gone 8-17 against the west

intheblanks, Thursday, 13 June 2024 21:15 (one month ago) link

it would be more fair and also more entertaining to de conference the league imho

lag∞n, Thursday, 13 June 2024 21:18 (one month ago) link

I Chet the Holmgren (Spottie), Thursday, 13 June 2024 23:54 (one month ago) link

Now that the broadcast is over, I’ve gotta say, I don’t feel like the NBA and ABC did a good job at all making this feel like a big event. Finals logos and legends should just be everywhere. The Stephen A halftime show was a joke. Top to bottom, they’ve gotta reevaluate it all.

what do you even do about this though besides dropping the conferences, is the league gonna force new ownership in NY and chicago? theres not any fundamental reason the east should be worse, its mostly from that
