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.
