After a couple of weeks off, the boys are back just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving (in Canada). In this episode of the Dropping Dimes podcast the boys share what are the things that they are most grateful for in basketball and just like your traditional turkey day dinner, there were some disagreements and arguments but in the end, we’re all family…right?

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.
