Over the weekend we had the absolute honour to attend Night Hoops’ Skills Competition and Social Night where we got a chance to learn more about this fantastic organization and everything the Night Hoops crew does to positively impact the youth in Metro Vancouver through basketball. Check out all the interviews we gathered during this fun event with Night Hoops Business Development Manager, Chad Cowles, Night Hoops Board Member, Jade Christie, local hoops legend, Clay Crellin, and Night Hoops Program coordinator Curtis Allembi.
On this very special episode of Dropping Dimes, we are joined by award winning, Vancouverite film-maker and the director, writer, producer and co-star of Finding Big Country, Kay Jayme! We had a great time with Kat, we asked her more details about her passion for basketball, her favourite shoe growing up, favourite Grizzlies player, her favourite WNBA player and more.
We also asked Kat about her motivation behind Finding Big Country, her introduction at the Vancouver Film Festival, and we even made a case for Kat to be part of the organization once the Grizzlies come back to Vancouver!
Definitely a classic episode that you won’t want to miss!

All-Star break is in full effect but that doesn’t mean the boys get a break, even after having a little too much fun during the All Star festivities. Join Rod and Evans for an All-Star edition of Dropping Dimes where the boys dissect every aspect of the All-Star weekend – best moments, how to fix some of the contests and a few memorable moments from the Sunday game.
On this episode, Rod and Evans talk about Ice Cube’s Big 3 potentially coming to Vancouver, the new teams in the Big 3 and why summer basketball is here to stay. The guys also give a quick update on the AD drama, a review of the Sixers and the Raptors going all in during the trade deadline, the rising stars challenge, and of course, the All-Star draft!
The NBA Trade deadline – That time when NBA fans scroll on their Twitter feed looking for Woj bombs and other updates. On this episode #triplethreat analyze the crazy and exciting trade that saw Kristapz Porzingis move from the Big Apple to the Lone Star state.
The boys also give their thoughts on the Anthony Davis saga, what do we know, what is the best scenario for the Pelicans and what should the rest of the league expect.
Finally, the boys go over the All-Star reserves and confirm their nickname for Nikola Vucevitch (although, they regret it immediately).
Just when you think there won’t be any big trades this season, AD decides to break the internet for a while and requests a trade! On this episode, the trio discuss the potential destinations for AD, Harden’s HUGE night at the Garden and, of course, the All-Stars starters as well as their predictions for how Team Lebron and Team Giannis will look like.
NEW YEAR, NEW DIMES! We’re very excited to be back in the studio AND with the new member of the DD family, Evans! On today’s episode the boys do their most extensive analysis so far and they tell each of the 30 teams what their new year’s resolutions should be. It’s not too late for that, right?
The first quarter of the season is in the books and the boys dedicate this episode to check on every team to see how they are doing. Also, do you have any suggestions for segments on the show? Hit us up on social media and let us know what you think!
Dropping Dimes reached double digits!!! The boys celebrate their 10th episode by disucussing the impressive perfomance of the Raptors, Bucks, and Nuggets (yeah, yeah the Warrios are good too).
Rod and Raf also discuss some of the reasons why some Latin American players don’t end up staying in the NBA and the boys wrap it up with some fashion talk! Really they just talk about the city edition jerseys but they give us their take on whether they would cop those threads or not. You don’t wanna miss this episode!
