In this inaugural episode of TBW’s Basketball by Association podcast, Joel C. Cordes and Arky Shea look for ways to further improve the NBA All-Star Game’s revamped format.
They also discuss why the Houston Rockets’ “super small-ball” experiment could only be happening right now, as well as how the L.A. Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers are inevitable matchups in the Western Conference Finals.
Can the Denver Nuggets be the spoiler among the aforementioned group? Do long-suffering fanbases like the New York Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves suddenly have some real hope?
Can Mike Budenholzer show enough flexibility during an NBA Playoffs series for the Milwaukee Bucks? Why do the people keep saying the Miami Heat need a second star for Jimmy Butler when they already have Bam Adebayo?
Hear Joel and Arky discuss all that as well as advice for sticking in sports media, one of the hardest and most frustrating industries around. Click the Play icon below to hear the full episode:
