In this terrifyingly good edition of Dropping Dimes, Rod and Evans take a look at what has been a scary good beginning of the 2019-20 NBA season. The boys also look back at the NBA Gallery that came to Vancouver (shoutout to NBA Canada, Victory, Vancouver Basketball, Vancouver Basketball Foundation) Also, on this episode we play a little trick or treat and the boys give us their scariest starting 5!
En este episodio especial de Dropping Dimes – oh hold on, we got a bit carried away with the whole Spain being World Champs. On the 40th episode of Dropping Dimes Rod and Evans go over the FIBA Basketball World Cup. What made these teams great? Did Rickyy Rubio deserve to be named MVP, where does Team USA go from here and more!
The crew is live from the Ball for All event where, along with the Vancouver Basketball Foundation, Vancouver Basketball, Jr. NBA, NightHoops, the BC Wheelchair Basketball Society and PNE, we celebrate inclusivity in basketball. On this episode, the guys talk about some of the great programs available for youth – Jr. NBA and NightHoops – the crew also talked about wheelchair basketball and how much fun and physical it can be. Last but not least, the boys go through each group of the FIBA World Cup of Basketball and pick their teams to advance from each group.
After a 1 week break, the boys are back and with more complaints than ever! Well, not really. On this episode, Rod, Raf, and Evans do talk about why the FIBA Basketball World Cup might be as electric as its closest cousin, the FIFA World Cup, and what can be done to make the tournament more interesting.
Jordans, Kobes, TMacs, Ewings, Pennys, you name them. We all have a favourite pair of shoe, realistically, more than one pair and on this episode, the guys share their top 3 favourite basketball shoes plus their honourable mentions, which include some very interesting options, to say the least.
On this very Canadian episode, the boys catch up on the WNBA and the Big3 and of course tackle the early hours of free agency. Are the Nets automatic contenders now that KD and Kyrie have committed to the team? Where do the Knicks go from here? Where will Kawhi land? These and many more questions are answered in this episode!

Check in for what will be an instant classic for all things Raptors, Toronto, and to to learn more on our affection for Cactus Club.
What does one do when the regular co-hosts are away? Well, same thing any other NBA does, you use your draft picks and trade for a star. On this episode, Rod is joined by local hoops legend and friend of the show, Clay Crellin from HD Training, and by Dropping Dimes’ pick from the 2019 draft, Dylan!

Later on the show, then guys take a look at the Conference Finals, is it all over for the Blazers and the Raptors? Are the Warriors better without KD? Why is Giannis so damn likeable, and more!
