Rob and I ended up not having time to talk about it like we planned last week, so we spent the whole time this week (and then some) talking about our picks for the All-Star reserve squads. I have an epic brainfart in considering Eastern Conference candidates in Part 1, but I have my revenge in Part 2, oh yes I do. Interested to hear thoughts on our 7 and 8-man selections for the respective conferences.
Also, not only do we have a name for the pod, the Make or Miss Podcast (explanation within), but some extremely appropriate bumper music as I'm sure you'll agree, after the jump.
In this edition, Rob and I spend about twice as long as we thought we would talking about one topic: guys around the league who should play more. Both of us tend to focus on the same type of player - the promising young player stuck behind a below average veteran on a team going nowhere. But Rob especially has some wild cards to discuss. There's a little audio glitch about 25 minutes in but I think we stitched it together. Pod and downloadable file after the jump.
Podcast: Trade Thoughts and Rating Local Announce Teams
Most airtime he's gotten in months.
Thankfully, Rob has recovered from what sounded like a nasty bout of appendicitis, and we were able to record a long overdue podcast. After the jump, we get sidetracked talking MORE about Blake vs. DMC before segueing into discussing the recent trades involving Courtney Lee and Jordan Crawford among others before finishing up with our thoughts on the League Pass experience of the booths on local broadcasts.
It's time for the New Year's addition of the PPPpodcast at WhereOffenseHappens Theater brought to you by bad puns and worse stutters (sorry, I was especially bad about it this week...) With a special guest appearance at the beginning! Rob and talk about the future for Andrew Bynum and Andre Miller following their "conduct detrimental" suspensions as well as ponder the Timberwolves late game foibles. Podcast below the jump for listening and/or downloading pleasure. Enjoy!
Holiday Bonus Podcast: Better Than Jam of the Month Club
We knew we'd be good, right Bled?
Today being one of the few days on the calendar between opening night and the playoffs with no game action, Rob and I decided it would be a good time to add to the overall holiday mirth with that good podcast stuff. We went a little long today, probably because Rob gave me the floor to revise and extend my remarks about the Phoenix Suns. Podcast link, download and extras after the jump.
Rob and I missed connections this weekend, so we decided to bang out a quick podcast this evening, listen or download after the break. Topics include us discussing Draymond Green (and the possible overrating of "underrated" 3&D assets), a little about Kobe's return, and a fair amount about the value of post possessions. The conversations about using the pass to "penetrate" the defense are here (PJax) and here (Brad Stevens)
I also wanted to take a quick look at a play that sort of epitomizes the lack of imagination that I characterizes the horrorshow that is the Cavs offensive scheme.
After enjoying the Fightin' Stevenses whoop up on the Quittin' Woodsons (how long til they become Firin' Woodsons?), Rob from PPP and I sat down to record a podcast, which I've embedded after the jump. Even though I'm posting the here, it's still the Points Per Possession Podcast at Where Offense Happens, sort of like Sports Authority Stadium at Mile High, but with millions less in sponsorship revenue. Hey Rob, CTC?
Last night's Portland-Indiana thriller was certainly the evening's main event, but we also had a triple OT "thriller" and a Tim Duncan game winner that threaten to get lost in the shuffle. So I wanted to quickly breakdown each end of game play. San Antonio's relatively simple pindown, and New Orleans' gorgeous running pick-and-pop backscreeny thing that is probably the single best thing Monty Williams has ever done as a coach.
