On the very first episode of The Two Cents Show we had a chance to interview Byron Abalos from the 6th Man Collective and Monday Nights. Byron shared with us how the 6th Man Collective came together and how they took a simple concept, playing a weekly pick-up game of basketball with your friends, to the stage. Byron also shared with us a bit of behind the scenes on how Monday Nights came to be where it is now and how they keep working on making it an inclusive basketball show for all audiences where they not only get to shoot a couple of hoops but they see themselves reflected in the actors and learn how basketball is a reflection of who we really are.
Rod and Evans welcome Raf back from his international adventure. The guys discuss the surprising news of Kenny Atkinson abruptly leaving the Nets, what might be behind that decision and is this Kyrie’s doing? The boys also chat about the Bucks, Raptors, and Lakers punching their ticket into the playoffs, Joakim Noah and Dion Waiters moving to Los Angeles, and just what in the world are the Knicks doing?!?! The boys also give a big shoutout to the important women in their lives.
On this episode of the Weekly Dime, Rod and Evans are joined by recording artist, Challenga! The guys discuss the feud between Giannis and James Harden,, should the Sixers be concerned about the injuries to their all-star players, and Tatum and Beal’s hot streak. In the last part of the show, the guys try to honour the No Dunks crew by doing their own version of the No Dunks SQUAD! Rod, Evans, and Challenga come up with the following categories for their “new” NBA franchises: city, , branding, front office, concession stand item, and celebrity ambassador. You don’t want to miss what the guys came up with!
If you ever wanted to hear some real hot takes from the crew this is the episode you’ve been waiting for. Rod and Evans discuss whether the Bucks are really for real or if they’ll have an early exit from the playoffs (again). Rod goes on a bit of rant and tries to make an argument for why the Clippers are playing the victim this season but also for why they should move out of LA! Last but not least, Rod and Evans predict the teams that will make the playoffs in a few weeks and where they will be placed on the standings.
After a couple of weeks off the boys are back and they’re dropping bars now!!! Not really but Rod and Evans did drop their thoughts and recap on this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend. Make sure you check it out!
After the tragic events from last Sunday, we tried our best to honour the memory of Kobe Bryant, the Black Mamba. Kobe and his daughter Gigi are now the new constellations in the basketball heavens and we will always remember them. RIP Kobe.
