The Boxscore Geeks Show

We talk:

  • Kenneth Faried starting for the Rockets and why it's amazing.
  • We talk Zion Williamson and the public attitude about paying college athletes. Brian notes this relates to concept of the Overton Window, which has nothing to do with former great Doug Overton.
  • The MIT Sloan Analytics Conference is coming up and one of our favorites Art Rondeau will be attending. We review some of his work and express our anger that only the Knicks have benefited from his knowledge.

The NBA All-Star festivities, namely how the dunk contest is the best and most irrelevant it's ever been.

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.
