In this episode, Cole Zwicker returns! We chat about what's been going on with Cole the last year. Then, we move on to Damian Lillard, and his place in the NBA right now after his series winner against Oklahoma City. Then, we chat about takeaways from the playoffs from the perspective of team-building? How has what we've seen affected the way we go about trying to most effectively create a champion?
After that, we start to preview second round playoff series. The Bucks-Celtics, then the potential Warriors-Rockets, and finally the Raptors-Sixers. Who do we think wins those series?
Finally, we chat about some draft takes, including who Cole would have at No. 2 on his board right now.
In this episode, I chat with Michael Pina from over at SB Nation about a lot of different NBA playoffs stuff. We spend the first 25 minutes on the Ben Simmons explosion, Embiid being out, and the 76ers general strategy of team building. Then we talk about the Celtics and Pacers series, and then bounce around a bunch around the rest of the NBA playoffs. This includes a fire take from Pina on who will win the title.
In this episode, I chat with Dieter Kurtenbach about every Game 1 in the NBA Playoffs series. We frame each series with a Panic Meter: a 0 to 5 rating of how panicked each team should be after Game 1 of the series, and then discuss what we saw in each game.
We start with Utah-Houston, then go to Indiana-Boston, then Orlando-Toronto, then San Antonio-Denver, then Oklahoma City-Portland, then Milwaukee-Detroit, Clippers-Golden State, and finish on Brooklyn-Philadelphia.

In this episode, I chat with Dieter Kurtenbach about the BANANAS last few days of the regular season. We start with Magic Johnson's hilarious, impromptu, WTF-level resignation.
Then, we talk about the last couple of days of the regular season. Jamal Crawford goes for a 50-piece, Dirk and Wade are done, and more, including the most absurd Trail Blazers box score in the history of box scores.
Then, we talk about playoff series, and preview the ones we're most looking forward to.
Finally, we talked about Us, the Jordan Peele movie and the last film I've seen in theatres before my absurd trips took me away from the podcast.
