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!
