On this edition of The Two Cents Show, we had the pleasure of chatting with LA-based artist and illustrator (drumroll, please) he’s heating up, he’s on fire, he’s Joe Shakalaka!!! We had a chance to ask Joe about his love for the game and how he ended up becoming a loyal Lakers fan. Joe also took us through his process and shared with us how he comes up with the incredible mash-ups he has created with video-game characters and NBA players, not to mention his super dope #90AirMax90 series and other illustrations he’s worked on. Rod wrapped up his convo with Joe with a special Lakers edition of the lightning round! Don’t forget to follow Joe and check out the amazing work he does!
On this week’s edition of The Weekly Dime we are joined by commissioner and coach of RBL Basketball, Blake Poritz! On the first half of the show we talked about the growth of youth basketball in Vancouver, the effects of COVID-19 on basketball players and what kind of activities we can all do to keep active, and practice dribbling, shooting, etc.
On the second half of the show, we talked about the 2020 class of the Hall of Fame that includes Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Tamika Catchings and a few legendary coaches. We then discussed which player (from any era) would we pick for a HORSE tournament, who we think is best ISO player ever, and which NBA players (active and retired) would we like to spend quarantine with.
If you ever wanted to hear some real hot takes from the crew this is the episode you’ve been waiting for. Rod and Evans discuss whether the Bucks are really for real or if they’ll have an early exit from the playoffs (again). Rod goes on a bit of rant and tries to make an argument for why the Clippers are playing the victim this season but also for why they should move out of LA! Last but not least, Rod and Evans predict the teams that will make the playoffs in a few weeks and where they will be placed on the standings.
Good news, Dropping Dimes Devotees! We finally found a name for our weekly banter, The Weekly Dime!!! We will bring you the beloved debate and analysis show every week as we have been doing so far but this will allow us to bring you even more exciting content.
Having said all of that, on this week’s episode, we talk about James Harden’s phantom dunk, a quick recap of the Lakers-Blazers game from last Friday, the Knicks firing coach Fizdale, Zion’s projected debut, and we try to solve the mid-season tournament question.
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.
Greetings, earthlings. We have now taken over your podcast! Now that Space Jam 2 is close to becoming a reality we decided to discuss which current NBA players would form the new Monstars! On this episode we also discuss the fight that erupted at a club between Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green.
