Joey and Sean record an emergency podcast after a crazy day of trades and draft maneuvering. We declare winners of the Celtics-Sixers, Lakers-Nets, and Hawks-Hornets trades, find new homes for Kevin Love and DeAndre Jordan, and once more denounce the constantly-traded Plumlee family. We also warn Chauncey Billups away from a doomed GM job, mourn the imminent breakup of the Hoopers fmaily, and learn that Dwyane Wade's contract would buy 661,111 pounds of sea bass.
The three Roundball Rock guys are back, making a new audio television show! We recap the Finals, talking KD's sobriety, JaVale's legacy, and Steph Curry's unneeded redemption. We also look at the dradt, debate Lonzo Bal lafter his amazing Foot Locker ad, and preview the arena in Inglewood, which is up to no good, and will come to represent all that is terrible about LA sports. Sponsored by Joe Lacob's "Light Beers Ahead."
Dave, Joey, and Sean look ahead to Game Four of the Finals and bet big on a Warriors sweep. We answer reader questions, drag Fred Hoiberg, investigate the weed smell from the Cavs locker room, LeBron's summer plans, and learn how the DNC rigger the soundtrack to "Thunderstruck." And the Warriors face perhaps their most daunting opponent yet: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse - and Matthew Dellavedova.
Joey and Sean do a postgame recap of the Warriors' Game Three comeback, Kyrie's crazy layups, J.R. Smith's crazy tweets, and the Cavs' bench's crazy net rating. Steph Curry out-rebounds Tristan Thompson, LeBron out-Draymonds Draymond, and Tyronn Lue strokes out down the stretch. Sponsored by Wilt Chamberlain's "40,000 Lines About 20,000 Women."
It's a LIVE Roundball Rock from the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco, with special guests Zach Harper (@talkhoops), NPR darling Chris Garcia, and sideline reporter Joe Tobin. We talk about the Finals, visit Ayesha's Kitchen, have an NBA spelling bee, explore the Game One Thirst Rankings, match up the Warriors with the Monstars, and give away a signed DVD of the Billy Christal white slavery epic, My Giant.
The first few minutes were cut off, but Don Pardo and the robot seamlessly recreated the opening moments.
