No Raf, no Evs, no problem! On episode 70th of the Dropping Dimes podcast Rod got a very special guest to join him on the pod, his girlfriend Ana! Ana is an environmental scientist, Raptors fan, and she shares an apartment with Rod’s jerseys errrrrr with Rod. Ana and Rod discuss the latest trades that saw Serge Ibaka going to the Clippers and Marc Gasol to the Lakers, Ana shared what it felt to see Serge leaving the Raptors and joining Kawhi and they both share their unfounded dislike for the Clippers (these two are meant for each other). Ana also tells us how Rod behaves when watching the Lakers, the challenges in decorating their apartment and what it is to live with someone that own more jerseys and sneakers than they really need. Basketball talk + relationship talk = A must listen episode!
Rod and Raf were in a comedic mood as they went through some of the trades that have happened so far in the NBA. The boys discuss whether Deandre Ayton will be the most yelled at player in the NBA now that Chris Paul is a member of the Valley Boys; did the Bucks pay too much to get Jrue Holiday (and BoBo) or will this squad will give Giannis and the Bucks their best chance at the title? As usual, Rod talks about his Lakers and their trade for Dennis Schroeder, the Lakers short pursuit of Demar DeRozan, and of course, the latest telenovela of the NBA, the House ton Rockets. All of this, plus some really bad jokes featuring Trevor ARITZIA on today’s episode of Dropping Dimes. Check it out!
On this episode, Rod and Raf discuss the dates for the 2020-2021 season and make plans for watching basketball all day on Christmas Day. The guys then take a trip back in time to discuss the life and legacy of Dr. James Naismith, creator of basketball, the 30 for 30 “There’s no place like home” and the boys go over the original 13 rules of the sport and whether they still apply today.

On this edition of The Two Cents Show, we had the pleasure of chatting with LA-based artist and illustrator (drumroll, please) he’s heating up, he’s on fire, he’s Joe Shakalaka!!!
We had a chance to ask Joe about his love for the game and how he ended up becoming a loyal Lakers fan. Joe also took us through his process and shared with us how he comes up with the incredible mash-ups he has created with video-game characters and NBA players, not to mention his super dope #90AirMax90 series and other illustrations he’s worked on. Rod wrapped up his convo with Joe with a special Lakers edition of the lightning round!
