This episode is FIRE! The triple threat of basketball podcasts is back together and they discuss it all. From social media burns suffered by the Clippers after their historic loss against the Denver Nuggets in game 7 of the second round of the playoffs to hot takes about the Lakers – Nuggets series, why is Miami staying hot after beating Boston 2-0 and we also discuss the All-NBA Teams.
And it wouldn’t be a playoffs episode if we didn’t do our last 2 minute commentary on the game between the Celtics and the Heat, all of that while Raf tries to come up with a catchphrase.
Yes, not only do we give our thoughts about the second round of the playoffs but we also give you a taste of our in-game broadcasting skills (spoiler alert, they need a lot of work). While the boys discuss the best of the playoffs so far, they also gave a live rendition of what ended up being an incredibly exciting game between the Raptors and the Celtics. In case that’s not enough, you might want to stick around to hear Raf opening up about what gets to him when he’s away from home when he’s on a business trip.
We spoke to Craig about the best and worst NBA jerseys, logos (never create and NBA logo on Canva, kids!), his favourite sneakers, his work as a designer, his process, and where he draws inspiration from.
Of course, we also talked about That Nique Life (which you should be following already AND you should be subscribed to their newsletter), how the crew at That Nique Life curates all that amazing content and where they hunt for the latest basketball content we had a sneaker edition of the lightning round.
This episode is, in the words of Craig, for the culture! So, trust us, you don’t want to miss it!
When we last spoke to our guest, the Fraser Valley Bandits of the CEBL had just finished their inaugural season, we were enjoying the last few days of the summer, and we were not in the midst of a pandemic that turned the world upside down. Fast forward to today and after an exciting, gruelling, and incredibly successful Summer Series, we are joined once again by the Vice President of the Fraser Valley Bandits, Dylan Kular!
If one thing has been clear throughout this time is that Rafael is very critical of Carmelo Anthony BUT the day when our very own Raf might get a Carmelo Anthony jersey is nigh! On today’s episode, Rod and Raf discuss the exciting race to the 8th in the West, the undefeated Suns, the disappointing Grizzlies, and of course, Damian Lillard’s great performance. The boys also discuss if the Bucks, Lakers, and Clippers fans should be concerned since their teams are not dominating in the bubble and last but certainly not least, Rod and Raf share their picks for this season’s NBA Awards.
Prepare for bubble and make it double!
To protect the sports world from boredom!
To unite all Lebron fans and haters!
To denounce the evils of the Kings and Wiz!
To extend our reach to #NBATwitter!
Team Dropping Dimes dropping an episode at the speed of light!
Check it out now, or prepare to fight!
The NBA Bubble has started and with that, we’re back to discuss the top teams on each conference as well as the race for the 8th spot on the West. As expected, Rod loses it a little when discussing the Lakers and Raf also kind of loses it when discussing the Blazers, check out what the boys have to say about the return of the NBA!
The NBA is back, the CEBL is back and the boys are back! Rod and Raf discuss the NBA’s bubble, what the rest of the season will look like, the play-in tournament for the 8th seed, and how the hiatus in play might have affected the players. The guys also take some time to review Vince Carter’s career and legacy, do you think Vince’s #15 should be the first jersey the Raptors retire? Finally, the boys take a look at the CEBL’s Summer Series and talk about their support to the Fraser Valley Bandits.
*Correction: the CEBL Summer Series will tip off July 25th. Training camp is scheduled for July 15th
In honour of our 2-year anniversary, we decided to pick our two favourite players at each position. In classic Dropping Dimes fashion, the boys discuss their picks for their top two players at each of the five positions (with some honourable mentions, of course). Thank you all again for all your love and support! Let us know who are your top two at each position on the comments below!
We already miss the Last Dance and we’re sure you miss it as well so, in honour of this fantastic documentary-series, we revisit the last four episodes of the docuseries. Rod and Raf discuss Pippen’s season in charge, how Steve Kerr handled the whole getting punch in the face situation, Michael’s comeback, and whether the Bulls would have been able to go for title #7 had they stayed together.
The Last Dance has definitely filled the basketball void in all of our lives and we needed to talk about it. In this episode, Rod and Raf discuss the six episodes that have come out so far. The boys discuss Jerry Krause’s legacy, MJ’s competitiveness, Pippen’s career, Rodman’s place in the NBA, that juicy rivalry between the Bulls and the Pistons, MJ’s deal with Nike and how shoe culture changed forever and way more! Sit back and enjoy the episode in preparation for episodes 7 and 8.
