The wait is over! Grab your favourite team’s jersey and get ready because NBA basketball is back!
Join Rod and Raf as they share their 1-word preview of each team for the upcoming season. The boys also comment on what quickly became one of their favourite documentaries, Finding Big Country, and the NBA pre-season game in Vancouver.
Here’s the thing about doing a podcast. It is awesome! But it’s not as easy as it migh look (sound?) Regardless, Raf and I are having a blast with this project and we hope you guys are having as much as we are!
On this week’s episode we talk about some of the exciting basketball events that are coming to Vancouver next week in preparation for the NBA’s pre-season. One of them, the premiere of “Finding Big Country“! An amazing story from the perspective of a superfan of the Vancouver Grizzlies and her quest to find her childhood hero, Bryant “Big Country” Reeves.
We also end up talking about And 1, Nike’s latest campaign, and Rod goes on a rant on how Foot Locker Canada is not living up to expectation. Enjoy!
Do you remember Lou Bega’s Mambo No. 5? Well, this episode is the Mambo No. 5 of the show. A little bit of WNBA in your life, a littlbe bit of Big 3 by your side…you get the idea. Join us on this episode as we catch up on the latest news of summer basketball as we look forward to most of the other leagues to come back to action.
Greetings, earthlings. We have now taken over your podcast! Now that Space Jam 2 is close to becoming a reality we decided to discuss which current NBA players would form the new Monstars! On this episode we also discuss the fight that erupted at a club between Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green. Last but certainly not least, we gave our two cents on the tweet from Donald Trump attacking Lebron James.
We never thought we would have to have THAT talk with you guys but i’s time we talk about the felines and the birds. Just kidding, it’s not that talk and by felines we mean Puma (the brand) and by birds we mean the Atlanta Hawks.
On this episode we discuss Vince Carter’s move to the Hawks, the WNBA’s All Star game results, the curious beef between C.J. McCollum and Kevin Durant, and we wrapt it up talking about the resurgence of Puma into the basketball world.
Also, will Rod have to wear Celtics green in the next post? There’s only one way to find out and you get to decide! Head over to Instagram to make Rod wear Celtics green and actually make on of these bets a reality.
After a long saga surrounded by mystery but mostly silence from Kawhi Leonard, we finally got some resolution in the form of the trade of the off-season. What does this mean for the Raptors, was it the right move to send Demar to the Spurs?
We also talk about the WNBA All-Star Game, Carmelo Anthony going to the Rockets, and we make case to bring Red Bull on board as our sponsor (spoiler alert: our pitch doesn’t end well).
Ah, the summer time. That time of the year when professional basketball stops for a few months…wait…no, it doesn’t. Summer basketball is a thing and we’re here to talk about it!
Check out the new episode of the Dropping Dimes podcast where we talk about some of the summer’s biggest events in the basketball world including: The WNBA and the place the players and the league deserve, Isaiah Thomas’ journey, Kawhi and the Raptors , the NBA’s Summer League, the Big 3 league (the guys pay a very quick homage to Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf) and more!
