Today on the Triangle Podcast (affectionately know as Tripod around these parts) (and by these parts, I mean "my desk"), we focused on a crazy, fun, possibly conspiracy-riddled night in the NBA.
First, Robert Mays — who contributes to our daily NBA playoffs round-up, The Shootaround — came by to talk about Rajon Rondo and LeBron James's amazing performances in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. We also touched on some fishy refereeing calls and whether Dwyane Wade is a villain. We wrapped up the first segment talking about the beauty of the Spurs offense and the hilarity of Boris Diaw possibly getting himself a championship ring.
For the second half of the show, I was joined by Rembert Browne. We talked about the Wednesday's NBA Draft Lottery, the star-making performance of Irina Pavlova (who repped the Brooklyn Nets at the drawing) and how mad it might have made Adrienne Maloof.
(Note: you will probably enjoy this podcast more if you imagine Chandler Parsons winking at you while you listen.)
Welcome to the second episode of the Triangle Podcast. This week, with the NBA playoffs in full swing, I thought I'd catch up with some of my Shootaround partners and talk basketball. Robert Mays stopped by the studio to discuss Zach Randolph's dominance over Blake Griffin in the Clippers-Grizzlies series, the Bulls and life after Derrick Rose, plus what we expected from Game 3 of the Knicks-Heat series.
Rembert Browne called in to lament Paul Pierce Tebowing on the city of Atlanta, and the caliber of celebrity sitting courtside at Hawks games. I also talked to Katie Baker about the Stanley Cup playoffs (specifically Wednesday night's heart-stopping triple-overtime Rangers-Caps game) and Jonah Keri about Bryce Harper, the Rangers, the Rays, and an exciting few nights in Major League Baseball.
It's the inaugural episode of The Triangle Podcast. Each episode, I'll talk to a few different Triangle writers about the sports they cover. This week, I talked to Bill Barnwell about the falling NFL draft stock Vontaze Burfict, the Dolphins pinning their hopes on Ryan Tannehill, and whether a system should come before personnel when it comes to drafting players. I also checked in with Katie Baker on the crazy, bloody, and dramatic Stanley Cup playoffs, then Roger Bennett, one half of the Men in Blazers, joined me to recap two insane days of Champions League semifinals and the upcoming Manchester derby. Finally, I talked to Jonah Keri about Carl Crawford's trip to Dr. James Andrews and Oakland's five-tool star in the making, Yoenis Cespedes.
