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!
The NBA finals are here! Rod and Raf take a look at the journey that has brought the Lakers and the Heat to face each other for the very first time in the finals. Can King James and AD get the Lakers their much-anticipated banner #17 or will the Heat prove to be the ultimate giant slayers of the bubble?
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.
The NBA Trade deadline – That time when NBA fans scroll on their Twitter feed looking for Woj bombs and other updates. On this episode #triplethreat analyze the crazy and exciting trade that saw Kristapz Porzingis move from the Big Apple to the Lone Star state.
The boys also give their thoughts on the Anthony Davis saga, what do we know, what is the best scenario for the Pelicans and what should the rest of the league expect.
Finally, the boys go over the All-Star reserves and confirm their nickname for Nikola Vucevitch (although, they regret it immediately).
