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!
