The Weekly Dime – Episode 69 – Trade Talk

Rod and Raf were in a comedic mood as they went through some of the trades that have happened so far in the NBA. The boys discuss whether Deandre Ayton will be the most yelled at player in the NBA now that Chris Paul is a member of the Valley Boys; did the Bucks pay too much to get Jrue Holiday (and BoBo) or will this squad will give Giannis and the Bucks their best chance at the title? As usual, Rod talks about his Lakers and their trade for Dennis Schroeder, the Lakers short pursuit of Demar DeRozan, and of course, the latest telenovela of the NBA, the House ton Rockets. All of this, plus some really bad jokes featuring Trevor ARITZIA on today’s episode of Dropping Dimes. Check it out!

The Weekly Dime – Ep. 64 – It’s getting CALIENTE in here

This episode is FIRE! The triple threat of basketball podcasts is back together and they discuss it all. From social media burns suffered by the Clippers after their historic loss against the Denver Nuggets in game 7 of the second round of the playoffs to hot takes about the Lakers – Nuggets series, why is Miami staying hot after beating Boston 2-0 and we also discuss the All-NBA Teams.

And it wouldn’t be a playoffs episode if we didn’t do our last 2 minute commentary on the game between the Celtics and the Heat, all of that while Raf tries to come up with a catchphrase.

The Weekly Dime – Ep. 63 – Second Round Commentary

Yes, not only do we give our thoughts about the second round of the playoffs but we also give you a taste of our in-game broadcasting skills (spoiler alert, they need a lot of work). While the boys discuss the best of the playoffs so far, they also gave a live rendition of what ended up being an incredibly exciting game between the Raptors and the Celtics. In case that’s not enough, you might want to stick around to hear Raf opening up about what gets to him when he’s away from home when he’s on a business trip.

The Weekly Dime – Ep. 62 – The Race to the 8th and NBA Awards

If one thing has been clear throughout this time is that Rafael is very critical of Carmelo Anthony BUT the day when our very own Raf might get a Carmelo Anthony jersey is nigh! On today’s episode, Rod and Raf discuss the exciting race to the 8th in the West, the undefeated Suns, the disappointing Grizzlies, and of course, Damian Lillard’s great performance. The boys also discuss if the Bucks, Lakers, and Clippers fans should be concerned since their teams are not dominating in the bubble and last but certainly not least, Rod and Raf share their picks for this season’s NBA Awards.

The Weekly Dime – Ep. 60 – The Happiest Place on Earth

The NBA is back, the CEBL is back and the boys are back!
