All that, plus our first ever mock draft, Box-Out Kid's posse, our favorite lefties of all time, signature scents, and Anna Kournikova's ageless beauty.
On today's show, The Basketball Jones discuss Andrew Bogut's impact, Steph Curry's third quarter, the David Lee card, the Nuggets' 3-point shooting, Andray Clutche, the shorthanded (vomiting) Bulls, jump balls, KAAAAAAAAAAAAAHN!, players who've impressed this postseason, our favorite off-the-court moments, and the games we're most looking forward to this weekend.

On this week's edition of the Triangle Podcast, Mays and I talked with Zach Lowe about the Cavs (woof), the Nuggets (yes), and the Grizzlies (yes!). Kirk Goldsberry stopped by in-studio to talk about Carmelo Anthony's incredible season (you can read more about that here) and spatial analytics. Mays and I chatted a bit about the Final Four, and which tournament players we thought could be decent in the NBA. Finally, Jonah Keri called in to talk about the young MLB season, focusing on the Marlins, the Angels, the Nats-Reds series, and the sad fall of Roy Halladay.
Getting all hot and bothered over a 0-0 draw in which the United States was outshot 17-1 by an uninspired Mexico side will have to wait another week. With Roger away in Liverpool stocking up on Boddingtons and pies, the Men in Blazers offer GFOPs an extended interview with Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn in place of the regularly scheduled suboptimal sounds. The legendary sports promoter, raconteur, and East End hard man offers a unique perspective on what it means to own a European football club in the modern game. He is, without a doubt, the Most Interesting Man in Britain.
The cherry atop the proverbial sundae comes at the end of this week's pod, though. While we don't want to reveal too much here, those that applied to play on the Men in Blazers national team might just want to start polishing their boots.
On today's show, The Basketball Jones discuss the Heat's impressive 24-game winning streak, their odds at tying or surpassing the 1971-72 Lakers' record, our favorite playoff race story lines, Andray Blatche screwin' the Wizards, players and teams who have disappointed us this season, and Dirk Nowitzki's future.
All that, plus "Bowling for Contracts," organic bananas, Mrs. Woobly O'Balls, Manu Ginobili's upcoming Reddit AMA, The Bachelor, and Leigh Ellis returns for Tweet of the Weak and to recite a scene from Four Weddings and a Funeral.
The FA Cup, a.k.a. the Budweiser Cup featuring the Football Association, made headlines again over the weekend; there hasn't been such a resounding return to relevancy since Betty White bit into a Snickers. In this week's pod, the Men in Blazers review Chelsea's game of two halves against Manchester United, touch on Everton's alarming slide, and discuss what Tim Howard's injury means for the U.S. men's national team's World Cup qualification chances. Plus, Michael and Roger answer telegrams on home/away tactics, MLS's intrusion into the South, and "Car Talk." And after announcing the winner of the Great Becker, Man Hair Swap, they double down with a new competition to find "America's Next Top Soccer Fan."
On today's show, The Basketball Jones discuss the Lakers' chances at jumping the Jazz for a playoff spot, what some lottery teams have to look forward to, Dwight Howard's comments about his former Magic teammates, the NBA's most powerful, the idea of NBA expansion, the flavor profile of Kobe's vino, and which contracts are the most "problematic."
All that, plus chicken fajitas, Shaquille O'Neal quotes, a tight round of Pun-Gun, and why in the world it's taking so long to get a preseason game or two in Australia. Honestly. Leigh Ellis is freakin' out over here, man!
On today's show, The Basketball Jones discuss the Western Conference playoff race, whether Doug Collins is done with Philly, memorable Madison Square Garden moments, Derek Fisher's return to OKC's bench, LeBron James's pregame dunking, and Tyreke Evans's "Wanker of the Week" moment.
