Dave, Sean, and Joey preview the Eastern Conference Finals, and Joey delivers some of the scorchingest predictions in Roundball history, including a prescient "Bulls in six" take. We also debate the postseason awards, and invent our own, including Joel Embiid the Comeback and Goneaway Player of the Year. We also review our awful over/under picks, struggle with Zipsermania, and learn that Plumlees = poison, while the 2016-17 Warriors face their arch-enemy: the TNT broadcast team. Shouts to the Turner family! This episode is sponsored by Malcolm Brogdon's Frog Den.
It's E-40 of the podcast, as Joey and Sean are joined by special guest Chris Garcia! We talk a lot about Tony Romo, other celebrities we want to see with one-day contracts, white slavery in the '80s, Steph Curry's ugly shoes, basketball players in other sports, and Chris tells us about attending the very first Rock n' Jock Basketball game & getting dissed by Vlade Divac. Classic Lakers get campus jobs, and the Warriors matchup against the Dominic Toretto Gang on a quarter-mile-long basketball court. Sponsored by Tony Romo's Hobo Dojo.

Dave is in Utah, Sean is in SF, and Joey is in LA but the pod must go on! We choose who teams should send to the lottery draw, talk unwritten NBA rules, speculate about Orlando's dry-erase board foibles, and make our MVP picks. Also the Basketball Hall of Fame screws up again, Lance Stephenson comes home to Club Rio, the Warriors battle Neil Gorsuch and the Senate, and we announce the slate of shows on the Roundball Rocketeerist podcast network.
Dave, Sean, and Joey are joined by Turner family cousin C.J. Toledano of Bleacher Report. C.J. talks about making videos for the Pistons, plays "Shitty Bull or Bull Shit?" and we all visit Kobe Bryant's Musecage. We also assign draft propsects their worst possible home, endorse Sam Hinkie for the Sacramento team president, and everyone taps the brakes on the Devin Booker bandwagon. Also the Warriors battle True Romance, but really, this is all about the Musecage.

It's a special bonus Roundball as Sean talks to SF comedian - and basketball mascot expert - Ben Kolina! Ben breaks down the remaining matchups, and explains why the Miami Hurricanes ar ethe most devastating possible mascot. We also talk Info Wars, industrialization, Roger Stone, and the awkwardness of Baylor University playing a tema called the Gamecocks. Who's cutting down the nets? Not the working class!

Comedian, baller, and Tar Heel superfan Erin Lennox (@ErinDeweyLennox) joins the podcast for a March Madness special that's mostly making fun of Duke. There's listener calls, shining moments, the Phoenix Gorilla, one-on-one with Jason Kidd, the King in the North Hollywood, and J.j. Redick's poetry. Plus the Warriors face a North Carolina All-Star team and we answer the question, "Who's the worst person in America - Richard Spencer, or Grayson Allen?" Sponsored by the Jerry Sloan Conference.
The greatest shooter in San Diego State history, Zach Harper (@talkhoops), joins the boys as we discuss the Timberwolves, Sacramento landmarks, Festus Ezeli's cadaver knee, bust names, Cleveland's pyromania, and why voice texts are like dick pics.
