In this episode, I chat with Dieter Kurtenbach about the NBA and life and technology apparently.
1:30-11:00: Could Skip Bayless beat Tom Brady or LeBron in an eight-mile race?
11:00-24:10: LOL Trevor Ariza, what happened? Breakdown of the madness of Friday’s non-trade, in addition to the trade that eventually happened sending him to the Wizards for Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers’ contract.
24:10-30:15: Spencer Dinwiddie Extension makes sense for everyone
30:15: 32:10: Intro to the Nuggets section
32:10-33:10: POLICY GENIUS AD
33:10-42:20: Nuggets section in full. Just how good are they? Are they legit the No. 2 team in the West? Do we buy the defense now?
42:20-44:15: ROBINHOOD AD
44:15-57:35: The 76ers have depth issues. What can they do to fix the depth issues? Also, why the Markelle Fultz situation just continues to be a bummer all around.
57:35-59:05: HIMS AD
59:05-1:11:20: Dieter goes on a rant about technology in today’s day and age, spawned by Malika Andrews’ piece on the Bucks and Bulls teaching their players spacing and the gamification of practice. I think that’s about the best way to describe it.
1:11:20-1:16:50: I like Emmanuel Mudiay! He’s good, and why the developmental system in the NBA is kind of a little fucked right now.
1:16:50 to end: we chat about Little Drummer Girl and Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse
