1716 S21 - James Harden’s Dominance!
Not a ton of news to go over this week, but James Harden is on an absolute tear, and it's time to give him the respect he deserves! There were a few note worthy things, like Carmelo being traded, Fultz returning to the 76ers, and Boogie joining the Warriors! The Utah Jazz have recently started turning things around, which is very coincidental to last year... just how far can they keep this going? Earlier in the season, we talked about how scoring in the NBA was up, and it hasn't changed at all! What's the cause of it, and how does it compare to last year, 10 years ago, and 20 years ago? We are going to let you know the answer to all these things!

What a show... First up, old friends Tom Thibadeau and Jimmy Butler had a bit of news this week! One of them got fired, and the other struggling in his new role...

Both teams had high expectations going into the year, and both of them are struggling to hit their potential. Can they get there? Fan voting for the All Star game is winding down, so we are talking about the results to this point. Are the potentially voted starters the right choice? Then we gave our opinion on who the starters should be. Lastly, now that we are halfway through the season, we chat about who the front runners for the NBA awards are!

1716 S19 - Halfway Point Check In’s!
On this week's show, we area half way through the NBA season! At the time of recording, teams were just under 41 games played. We took a look at EVERY single team in the NBA and talked about where they are at, and where they will likely be by the end of the year! We had a much bigger show planned, but when the Eastern Conference took half an hour to discuss, we decided to audible to just the check ins on each team! There’s so much to discuss!

1716 S18 - Beginning of the End for the Warriors?
This week's show really did write itself. The Warriors have started to show a chink in their armor, with two of their All Stars having an on court argument while another of their All Stars is out with an injury. We had to break down and discuss what happened and what could happen with the team going forward! The discussion went to Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and even Anthony Davis' upcoming free agency! Also this week, the Jimmy Butler saga has concluded! At least for now... After his trade to the 76ers, we discuss how we feel that is going to work out, if he stays after the year, and even how this will impact the Timberwolves. Lastly, league veteran, Carmelo Anthony's, time Houston is over. Can he fit in on any teams, and are the Rockets finally back in form, after a very slow start?

1716 S17 - Most Surprising Teams After 10 Games!
What a show... what a show. You'll definitely want to stay until the very end! To start off this show, the Lakers and Celtics had a lot of news this week. From the Lakers picking up Tyson Chandler, to Magic Johnson having a serious meeting with Luke Walton. Kyrie Irving gets fined for tossing a ball in the stands, and Terry Rozier may be unhappy with his playing time. Then we try to figure out which of the over/under achieving teams can keep it up or recover; featuring the Kings, Nuggets, Hornets, and Jazz. Speaking of under achieving teams, the Washington Wizards are terrible. Can we find a solution? Spoilers: no. Blow up the team. Lastly, some unwritten rules in the NBA were broken this week. Is that an issue at all, or do unwritten rules not exist?

1716 S16 - NBA Coaches On The Hot Seat
This week in the NBA saw a new record for 3 pointers made in a single game! To start off the show, we talk about Klay Thompson's record, Dwight Howard's debut, and the latest Jimmy Butler antics. This week also saw the first coaching change of the year with Ty Lue taking an exit from Cleveland. Seems like a great time to talk about some coaches on the hot seat! Our Lakers fan has some concerns about what he's seen so far, so we dive into those concerns in the third quarter. Lastly, there has been a lot of resting players so far this year, even though there are fewer back to backs and no four games in five nights. Is this a problem, and is there a solution? Let's discuss and find out!

1716 S15 - Rockets vs Lakers Fight! First Week Impressions!
The first week of the NBA season provided some great basketball! On this week's show, we first talk about how the scoring in the NBA is up, up, up! After giving our standout performers from the first week, we discuss which of the undefeated/winless teams will drop/bounce back as the season continues. It didn't take long for the first fight of the NBA season to break out, and it happened to be against two big time veterans. Were the suspensions enough? Were the actions justified? What the heck was Brandon Ingram doing? All important questions! We are here to give the answers. The 76ers are supposed to be one of the elite teams in the NBA, but their backcourt can not shoot. At all. What is to blame for that? It may not be the players' fault... Lastly, it's only been one week... SO LET'S OVERREACT! Are the Rockets, Celtics, and Lakers done for? Is this the year of the Nuggets, Pistons, and Pelicans? Quick answer - no. Take a lesson for more explanation!
