How far would you go in order to guarantee your favourite team a title? Don’t ask Rod because it sounds like he would trade Raf and Evs to the basketball gods just to give LeBron James more years as a Laker. Sheesh! Talk about fandom…here are some other topics the boys went over:
MVP race. With Lebron, KD, and Embiid out with player will benefit from their absences?
Where will the Lakers land on the West after dealing with LBJ and AD injuries?
LaMarcus Aldridge joins the Nets and the expectations for Brooklyn.
Trade deadline. The Orlando Magic have a garage sale and Kyle Lowry stays put.
No Raf, no Evs, no problem! On episode 70th of the Dropping Dimes podcast Rod got a very special guest to join him on the pod, his girlfriend Ana! Ana is an environmental scientist, Raptors fan, and she shares an apartment with Rod’s jerseys errrrrr with Rod. Ana and Rod discuss the latest trades that saw Serge Ibaka going to the Clippers and Marc Gasol to the Lakers, Ana shared what it felt to see Serge leaving the Raptors and joining Kawhi and they both share their unfounded dislike for the Clippers (these two are meant for each other). Ana also tells us how Rod behaves when watching the Lakers, the challenges in decorating their apartment and what it is to live with someone that own more jerseys and sneakers than they really need. Basketball talk + relationship talk = A must listen episode!
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!
If you ever thought Rod talked about the Lakers too much during previous episodes well, get ready because on this episode he makes sure that Raf and the world know that the LA Lakers are, once again, the NBA Champions. On this episode, Rod and Raf review the NBA Finals, the uphill battle the Heat had in front of them, LeBron’s amazing performance, AD’s versatility, Markieff’s blown pass, Danny Green getting death threats, and more. The duo also chat about Skip Bayless’ tweets on Lebron, will AD re-sign with the Lakers, and the boys give their waaaaaay too early predictions for next season. This was a long and strange NBA season so we want to take the chance to thank you all for your support. We’ll keep on working on more basketball content for all of you to enjoy!
