Artist Nick Zav joins for the quarantine special
Everyone is bored. So were we. The Relatively Speaking Podcast, once again, is back with a random edition of the show. In this episode, musician Nick Zav joins the show to talk about everything under the sun, including his music. Other topics: What is everyone doing during this debacle? YouTube is dominating Nick and Joe's lives. Best Sports Movies Ever... with MULTIPLE Ed O'Neil references.  So much more. It's all over the place, kids. Listen to Nick's music on Spotify or Apple. His music is all that and a bag of chips. Some might even dare say it's the cat's meow. The GOAT is on Twitter here.  Support Joe and Jared by following them on the mean streets of twitter @JMintzHoops and @JosephNardone. For real, jokes aside, be safe.

Relatively Speaking Podcast - Kawhi Leonard madness, Lakers fallout, Knicks
After a long hiatus, the Relatively Speaking Podcast returns with the fury of one exploding sun. On this edition of the show, the guys discuss a variety of topics, including the entire fallout that comes with Kawhi Leonard choosing the Los Angeles Clippers over the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers. New York Knicks talk is also involved, as is Joseph shoehorning in a few college basketball references. The show ends with Absurd Questions, which somehow involves possibly eating people.

Relatively Speaking Podcast Episode 132
The sports media industry landscape is constantly changing, and FanRag sports is changing with it.  After 132 episodes, Jared Mintz and Joseph Nardone (that's right, he's back) wrap up their podcast by reflecting on the last couple of years, their careers to this point as writers, where the industry's been and where it's going. The duo, who also host the Off The Wall Podcast for The Knicks Wall, fondly reminisce on some of their previous stops as writers, the running gag that the podcast would be cancelled shortly after it kicked off, and some of their favorite episodes and conversations with their esteemed guests. They also make fun of Kevin Durant, because they're blogger boys and he's not. For amateur basketball coverage and takes on Marty Jannetty, you can follow Joseph on Twitter at @JosephNardone.

Relatively Speaking Podcast Episode 130
The NBA had a wild trade deadline last week, and with All-Star weekend literally hours away from tipping off, there's only one team that we should all be talking about. No, the Relatively Speaking Podcast is not going to discuss the Cleveland Cavaliers, rather the team that worked with them to fix their problems and potentially steal their franchise's greatest player in free agency this upcoming summer...the Los Angeles Lakers! Joining Jared to discuss one of the NBA's most prominent franchises is Jacob Rude, who is a contributor for Lakers Outsiders, and the host of the Coast 2 Coast Podcast. Jared and Jacob talk about the Lakers' youth movement, long term plans for Isaiah Thomas and Julius Randle, and whether or not they have a shot at LeBron. For great Lakers and NBA thoughts you can follow Jacob on Twitter at @JacobRude.

Relatively Speaking Podcast Episode 129
The NBA is the greatest league in professional sports. Even with Super Bowl LII on deck, all we can talk about is NBA All-Star weekend, LeBron's drama in Cleveland, DeMarcus Cousins season ending injury, and James Harden's ridiculousness. And then, unexpectedly, five-time All-Star Blake Griffin gets traded in the prime of his career! The Clippers moving Griffin to Detroit represents the death of Lob City, which was more than likely the franchise's most glorious run. Joining Jared to discuss the end of an era, Blake's legacy, the future for Los Angeles's other team, and the potential of landing LeBron is Rob Flom, column editor for SB Nation's Clippers blog Clips Nation. For great Clippers and NBA content, and other thoughtful tweets, you can follow Rob on Twitter at @RichHomieFlom.

Relatively Speaking Podcast Episode 128
Between Chris Paul's controversial return to the Staples Center, Arron Afflalo literally trying to take Nemanja Bjelica head off, and the Cavs dropping five of their last six games and looking like the worst defense the NBA has seen in years, things are heating up around the NBA. Somewhere in the background of the madness has been the Chicago Bulls, who are 15-8 since Nikola Mirotic returned to the team in early December, and have won 4 of their last 5 games.  After trading Jimmy Butler during the offseason, the Bulls are in full rebuilding mode, and things are seemingly further along than expected. Joining Jared to make sense of the Bulls hot stretch and talk about their young core is Vijay Vemu, who covers the team for SB Nation's BlogABull.com. You can follow Vijay on Twitter at @VJVemu.

Relatively Speaking Podcast Episode 127
Considering we haven't talked about the New York Knicks since the Carmelo trade, Jared had a special guest on the podcast to discuss his hometown team. Joining the show this week is Bryan Gibberman, who used to host the Podium Game Podcast, and has made several appearances on the LockedOn Knicks podcast. Bryan doesn't hold any punches when it comes to discussing the Knicerbockers, and with strong ties to the Michigan basketball program, he was the perfect person to talk to about a potential Tim Hardaway Jr./Trey Burke reunion. Bryan also had a special guest column for The Knicks Wall this week, where he discussed the below average job that Knicks' coach Jeff Hornacek has done this season. For mostly rational Knicks, Phoenix Suns and other NBA takes, and the occasional New York Jets bashing, make sure you follow Bryan on Twitter at @Gibberman10.

Relatively Speaking Podcast Episode 126
The Toronto Raptors have the second best record in the East, but lead the conference in ret rating, and have been one of the most exciting teams to watch in all of the NBA over the last couple of months.  Joining Jared to discuss their hot start, and whether it's sustainable, is Sean Woodley, who writes and hosts a podcast for LockedOn Raptors, and contributes to SB Nation's Raptors HQ. Sean opens the show explaining how Masai Ujiri and Dwane Casey have implemented a culture change, before getting into what makes DeMar DeRozan so good. The two also discuss preserving Kyle Lowry, the team's depth being driven by a youth movement and more. Keep up with great Raptors content and other fire sports tweets by following Sean on Twitter at @WoodleySean.

As we prepare our good-byes for 2017, Jared dedicates this episode of the Relatively Speaking Podcast to his five most important NBA storylines from the past year, as well as the five things he's most excited for in 2018. The Golden State Warriors won their second championship in three seasons, but was it a big deal? Why don't people like Kevin Durant anymore? Who are the league's new must-watch stars?  Jared covers these topics, heart-wrenching break-ups, and also, happily, leaves the Phil Jackson/Carmelo Anthony Knicks in 2017. For the future, we look at reasons we won't see the Cavs and Warriors meet up again in the NBA Finals, both in 2018 and beyond. Will there by a blockbuster trade? If so, this episode looks at the candidates for relocation. And don't worry, Lavar Ball gets a shout-out as well.

After talking about the Cleveland Cavaliers surprisingly yet unsurprisingly taking over the Eastern Conference last week, the Relatively Speaking Podcast went back to the top of the West this week, to discuss a couple of teams in Texas who are giving the Golden State Warriors a run for their money. Helping Jared make sense out of the surging Houston Rockets, and the early success of a Kawhi-less San Antonio Spurs team is Kelly Scaletta, whose writing can be found at Fanrag Sports, Bleacher Report, Dime Uproxx and BBall Breakdown

Relatively Speaking | Cleveland Cavaliers getting back on track
If you've been keeping up with the NBA, and the Relatively Speaking Podcast for that matter, you know there are few topics, teams and players more worthy of discussion at the moment than the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James.   After a 5-7 start, the Cavs have reeled off 13 wins in their last 14 games, and are back near the top of the Eastern Conference.   Joining Jared to discuss the Cavs righting the ship, LeBron having a career-year in his 15th season in the league, unsung heroes, and more is Carter Rodriguez. Carter writes for SB Nation Cav's blog Fear the Sword, and he's the co-host of The Chase Down podcast with Justin Rowan For Jeff Green stanning, great Cavs/NBA takes and the occasional Twitter beef with less than favorable former sports reporters turned political voices, make sure you're following Carter at @Carter_Shade.
