The Two Cents Show – Ep. 07 with Joe Shakalaka

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!

Ep. 52 – Hot Takes!

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.

Ep. 46 – The Weekly Dime

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.

Ep. 15 – What the Knicks?! & Trade deadline banter!


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).

Ep. 11 – Melo-drama

Life would be too boring without some drama and on this episode we discuss the latest drama of the Carmelo Anthony saga and what seems to be the final chapter of the Jimmy Butler drama (for now).

Also, can Duke beat the 2018-19 Cavs? Guess who’s back in the US? We’ll give you a hint…”NEVA’ LOST!”

Pack your bags, folks, we’re heading over to China to discuss Jimmy Fredette’s 75 point game!
