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.
We had the absolute pleasure of chatting with producer, director, writer, podcaster, analyst, storyteller, and dare we say pioneer of media basketball in Canada. The one and only Duane Watson!!! Over the course of our conversation, we had a chance to get to know Duane a lot more through basketball of course, for instance, we talked about his favourite team growing up, which player he most identifies with, his most prized basketball possession and more.
We then took Duane on a trip down memory lane to revisit his basketball journey, how he got to write for Hoop and SLAM, his first interviews with Canadian NBA players, his work with Raptors. Heck, we even talked about Duane being a road manager for a hip-hop band on a tour!
On the third section of the show we talked about Duane’s most recent projects, including Crown League and ‘Nique (which btw, you should subscribe right now). We then finished off our chat with a not-so-fast lightning round where we got Duane to pick between some touch choices.
We say this time and time again but really, trust us, this is an episode that you don’t want to miss!
Jordans, Kobes, TMacs, Ewings, Pennys, you name them. We all have a favourite pair of shoe, realistically, more than one pair and on this episode, the guys share their top 3 favourite basketball shoes plus their honourable mentions, which include some very interesting options, to say the least.
We never thought we would have to have THAT talk with you guys but i’s time we talk about the felines and the birds. Just kidding, it’s not that talk and by felines we mean Puma (the brand) and by birds we mean the Atlanta Hawks.
On this episode we discuss Vince Carter’s move to the Hawks, the WNBA’s All Star game results, the curious beef between C.J. McCollum and Kevin Durant, and we wrapt it up talking about the resurgence of Puma into the basketball world.
Also, will Rod have to wear Celtics green in the next post? There’s only one way to find out and you get to decide! Head over to Instagram to make Rod wear Celtics green and actually make on of these bets a reality.
