It’s Episode 9 and we’re talking loads of NBA and a dash of Friday Night Lights!
The NBA All Star Weekend and trade deadline have combined to create a tsunami’s worth of Visser of Ozcast fodder! We kick off the show with a brief recap of the weekend’s All Star festivities. We stop just short of calling the dunk contest "officially back" and join Demar DeRozan in making a plea to eliminate all of the props from future dunk contests. Unless you’re name is Javal McGee and you want to dunk like 19 balls in 13 hoops simultaneously, in which case, by all means because you are an athletic freak. We also touch on the All Star game and Kobe being Kobe and LeBron being Lebron. The real winners, though? The coaches (Pop and Doc), who somehow got away with playing their conference rivals’ stars (Kobe/Pau and Heatles) ridiculous minutes while resting their own (Duncan, the Cetlics). We also join the internets in lavishing praise on The Basketball Jones, who easily won the weekend with all of their video goodies. Seriously, check some out over at www.thescore.com/tbj, but don’t fall in love too much! We’re your one-stop shop for delayed reactions to NBA news!
Whoa, this recap is already ridiculously detailed and kind of laughing in the face of the definition of "recap." So, I’ll make this quick. We transition from the All Star game to the massive Melo trade that finally went down. Everyone wins, although we’d rank the winners in order as 1) Melo 2) The Nuggets and 3) The Knicks. Like any trade, let’s reevaluate at the end of the season!
Finally, we both reveal our new obsessions with Friday Night Lights. We know, all the cool TV heads have been hip to the dusty, Austin-based football drama for years now, but please make room for us on the cattle car, will ya?
That’s it for now, folks. Thanks for listening to us talk:
