As we do every now and then, the Blerd Radio podcast hoops it up. This basketball-centric episode is co-hosted by Big Money, GG and Jay from the NY Knicks Podcast. We celebrate the mid-point of the 2012-2013 NBA season and All-Star weekend by giving midseason assessments of our favorite (and least-favorite teams,) predicting who will make it to the NBA finals, and reminiscing about All-Star weekends of years past.
-A mid-season appraisal of our beloved (and suddenly REALLY GOOD) New York Knicks
-GG low-key calling out Big Money for being a fairweather fan.
-We find out what the initials "J.R." in J.R. Smith's name really stand for, and shake our heads in disapproval of the Twitter hashtag #vamplife, which Mr. Smith is apparently fond of using.
-A discussion of Roy Hibbert's dazzling mediocrity.
-The word "vociferous" makes its way into a Blerd Radio podcast for the first time.
-why Dwight Howard is the Tin Man of the NBA (no heart!)
-Jay realizes that his preseason NBA finals picks weren't so farfetched after all.
-Is the All-Star game still relevant?
-A celebration of Baby Jordan, "Sky" Walker, and the handful of folks who were better Slam Dunk contest participants than they were actually NBA players.
-The first discusson of Terence Stansbury in years by anyone not related to Terence Stansbury.
-Some revised championship predictions.
