In honour of our 2-year anniversary, we decided to pick our two favourite players at each position. In classic Dropping Dimes fashion, the boys discuss their picks for their top two players at each of the five positions (with some honourable mentions, of course). Thank you all again for all your love and support! Let us know who are your top two at each position on the comments below!
We already miss the Last Dance and we’re sure you miss it as well so, in honour of this fantastic documentary-series, we revisit the last four episodes of the docuseries. Rod and Raf discuss Pippen’s season in charge, how Steve Kerr handled the whole getting punch in the face situation, Michael’s comeback, and whether the Bulls would have been able to go for title #7 had they stayed together.
The Last Dance has definitely filled the basketball void in all of our lives and we needed to talk about it. In this episode, Rod and Raf discuss the six episodes that have come out so far. The boys discuss Jerry Krause’s legacy, MJ’s competitiveness, Pippen’s career, Rodman’s place in the NBA, that juicy rivalry between the Bulls and the Pistons, MJ’s deal with Nike and how shoe culture changed forever and way more! Sit back and enjoy the episode in preparation for episodes 7 and 8.
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.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Clipper bros and Beantown boys, you’re in for a treat this week. On the second episode of the Dropping Dimes’ Two Cents Show, we had the chance to talk with one and only, J.E. Skeets from the No Dunks podcast on The Athletic!
On the first section of the show, we got to know Skeets a bit more from a basketball perspective, his favourite shoes, his first jersey, etc. We then talked about Canada Basketball and the chances of Team Canada making it to the Olympics and the current class of Canadians in the NBA. We also asked Skeets some questions about his Toronto Raptors and played a little game called “Why can’t we be friends”.
Close to the end of the show, we followed up with Skeets on the No Dunks Squad episode and asked him if he had the chance to have a new NBA franchise in Vancouver what would he name the team, what the uniform might look like, what concession stand item would be sold in the arena and who would be the celebrity ambassador.
Trust us, you definitely do not want to miss out on this episode!
On the very first episode of The Two Cents Show we had a chance to interview Byron Abalos from the 6th Man Collective and Monday Nights. Byron shared with us how the 6th Man Collective came together and how they took a simple concept, playing a weekly pick-up game of basketball with your friends, to the stage. Byron also shared with us a bit of behind the scenes on how Monday Nights came to be where it is now and how they keep working on making it an inclusive basketball show for all audiences where they not only get to shoot a couple of hoops but they see themselves reflected in the actors and learn how basketball is a reflection of who we really are.
Rod and Evans welcome Raf back from his international adventure. The guys discuss the surprising news of Kenny Atkinson abruptly leaving the Nets, what might be behind that decision and is this Kyrie’s doing? The boys also chat about the Bucks, Raptors, and Lakers punching their ticket into the playoffs, Joakim Noah and Dion Waiters moving to Los Angeles, and just what in the world are the Knicks doing?!?! The boys also give a big shoutout to the important women in their lives.
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.
After a couple of weeks off the boys are back and they’re dropping bars now!!! Not really but Rod and Evans did drop their thoughts and recap on this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend. Make sure you check it out!
