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!
All of our lives have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and as we all go through these uncharted times, we will try to entertain you by providing basketball content in your lives. On the first virtual episode of the Weekly Dime, Rod, Raf, and Evans discuss the impact the virus took on the NBA and potential scenarios for when the NBA might be able to resume. The guys also discuss the movie, The Sixth Man, with Marlon Wayans and Kadeem Hardison. The boys chose their MVP of the movie, why the Serbian centre in the movie might have been ahead of his time and more! Stay healthy and look out for each other, Dropping Dimes fam!
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.
After the tragic events from last Sunday, we tried our best to honour the memory of Kobe Bryant, the Black Mamba. Kobe and his daughter Gigi are now the new constellations in the basketball heavens and we will always remember them. RIP Kobe.
Ho Ho Ho, folks! In this very festive edition of the Weekly Dime the boys get together to discuss what presents would they give to some of the NBA teams. Maybe a new uniform for the Magic or the Mavs? Maybe a much-needed veteran to a contending team? Maybe some teams just deserved a lump of coal! You don’t want to miss out on what Santa Dimes has for these teams!
A Slovenian basketball player representing a team from Dallas drops a triple-double in Mexico City. Now that’s a sentence that’s a sequence of words that no one ever dreamed of typing but this is 2019 and basketball is international folks! In this episode of The Weekly Dime, the whole gang gets together to talk about the Raptors and the Nuggets’ recent hiccups and whether we should be worried about them, the lack of recognition in the Bucks’ winning streak, the Lakers playing even better than expected. The trio also discusses the Mexico City games series and the recent news of Mexico City hosting a G-League team. You don’t want to miss out on this episode, folks!
