Don’t look now, but the NBA offseason is absolute insantiy. Kawhi wants to go from Spurs to Lakers ends up north of the border with the Raptors and now Carmelo is headed to the Dirty-South ATL for a weekend before getting paid $27.3m and likely ending up in either LA or Miami…but one of the boys thinks he may end up in Golden State! We all saw it coming but did we really? Canada, LP, and Joe discuss the offseason and talk about the league at large plus some Wizards chatter too! Tune in and share!
Stevie and Joe are back from vacation and getting caught up on all things sports and all things DC! This episode of the podcast includes a recap of the past two weeks specific to the Nationals and the pitching woes (0-12min), plus All Star Weekend preperations (16-20). The boys talk briefly about LA-Bron, PG, and the NBA free agency period (21-28) before shifting into World Cup, Wayne Rooney, and a brisk soccer convo (31-36). The highlight of this weeks non-sports story for Joe is the Thai Cave Rescue (38-42) which ended earlier today while Steve wanted to focus on POTUS and his Supreme Court nomination (42-46). The final thoughts from both lads includes a discussion on the NFL and the terrible job the Commish is doing at executing punishments (46-50)… all that plus more on this extended weeks-in-review episode of the DTC podcast!
The WorldCup knockout rounds begin, and LP and Joe talk about the highlights and the lowlights of the firsst two weeks plus make a few predictions too. In local soccer news Wayne Rooney signs with United, DC United that is, and not much is really expected of him accept to score and fill the seats at the new stadium downtown… right? And to cap the show, is there is a really chance that Lebron would come play for the Wizards or is that just nonsense to fill the airwaves becuse the Nationals are playing some terrible baseball? … Quick show, get caught up, then share!
LP, FP, and Joe are back talking sports as the #ALLCAPS hangover finally comes to an end… by the way the Caps bent the cup!? But a lot has happened in the past two weeks with Trotz leaving (5:30), Johnny C staying (10:45), and DSP getting a one year extension too (12:30). But there is more happening around the DC on the Wizards side with a strange draft ending (18:25), a trade bringing in Austin Rivers (24:30), and NBA free agency is just around the corner (31:00). Welcome back to the show!
Well, that was not interesting at all. The Warriors defeated the Cavs in straight sets to win the NBA Finals and bring the NBA season to a close. In DC, we have been consumed by all things NHL and Capitals to the point that many of us didn’t actually watch Game 4 of the NBA Finals until several days after it actually happened… but did anyone really see this ending differently? Justin “JusBlaze” joins Joe to put a bow on the NBA season and talk a little but about what could have been and what may be by the time the summer ends and the new season begins. Are the Warriors a dynasty? Is there such a thing in the modern NBA? Could Durant leave the Bay Area for LA? Might Paul George, LeBron, or a few Spurs join him there? Listen and let us know your thoughts!
