The Boxscore Geeks Show

This week's show is all about the NBA Trade Deadline. We focus on:

The Bucks trading for Nikola Mirotic

The Raptors trading for Marc Gasol

The Lakers being reasonable in their attempt for Anthony Davis (but wrong for letting Zubac go)

How the Mavericks, Clippers, and Knicks are all doing the same strategy (clearing space for a blockbuster free agent) Of course, there aren't enough to go around.

Tune in!

We talk:

The blockbuster trade between Dallas and New York that traded Kristaps Porzingis and DeAndre Jordan.

We also talk some about the classic: "overvaluing big men" trope.

A little more Anthony Davis gossip, we're kind of in limbo until things settle.

How Rudy Gobert getting snubbed from the All-Star game proves Donovan Mitchell right. Also, how weird it is how people reacted to him crying.

We talk:

Small Topics

  • Why Blake Griffin can be great at offense but a below-average big in the NBA.
  • How Faried and Cousins look good in new environments.
  • How it sucks that Victor Oladipo is injured.
  • A fun history story about the Warriors.

Big Topic #1: Why the Naismith Hall of Fame is a sham, especially compared to Cooperstown.

Big Topic #2: Anthony Davis trade rumors. We go meta on this one talking about the news cycle. This is right before we engage in the same rumor mill discussion :)

We spend the first 20-25 minutes of the show talking the NFL playoffs and wrestling. This happens right after I say we're a Rockets podcast.

We talk the Houston Rockets. We like them trading Melo and signing Faried. That said, this team is still playing from behind.

We talk Scottie Pippen and his talk about how he'd guard James Harden. We use this as an excuse to talk a geeky tangent about time travel and greatest of all teams.

We talk:

DeAndre Jordan's free throw shooting.

Are the Warriors better than the Nuggets out west?

Houston's woes now that Clint Capela is out for two months and Eric Gordon is on his way back.

Do Kawhi Leonard and Donovan Mitchell deserve player of the week?

Should the Bulls buyout Robin Lopez?

We talk a horrible study that has inexplicably become a common "advanced analytics" staple. As Brian succinctly puts it, it's essentially a "fruit of a poison tree" scenario.

We talk issues with in-season Wins Produced and how we'll be examining things to make sure everything is running alright.

Finally, we talk Trump serving Clemson fast food.

Steven Adams and Stephen A. Smith have problems with players names too!

Jabari Parker is benched! Did the Bulls have a plan? On that note:

The Phoenix Suns had a plan with Ariza. Use him as a trade asset ... so close!

We talk a fair bit about legalized sports wagering and the NBA, as well as their "integrity fee" proposal.
