Hang Time Podcast (Episode 230) Featuring J.J. Redick

Author: NBA's Hangtime Podcastsekou.smith@turner.com (NBA Digital)
Wed, Mar 09, 2016


HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS When Doc Rivers revamped his bench in the offseason he made sure the Los Angeles Clippers would be one of the most intriguing teams in the NBA this season. Even now, after shipping both Josh Smith and Lance Stephenson out, the Clippers remain a team of intrigue. They have an elite coach in Rivers, superstars in Chris Paul and Blake Griffin (yes, he'll be back), one of the league's best rim protectors and rebounders in DeAndre Jordan, a super sixth-man in Jamal Crawford and one of the league's deadliest pure shooters in J.J. Redick. So what's holding them back? Why are they stuck in the fourth spot in the Western Conference standing? It might have something to do with the reigning champions up in Oakland. The Golden State Warriors on a historic roll this season and the San Antonio Spurs aren't far off the pace. And then there is the matter of that two-headed superstar monster from Oklahoma City. So perhaps it's understandable, the Clippers' current predicament. Even as they continue to shine without Griffin in the lineup, they still have ground to make up in the standings. We dig deep on the Clippers and much more on Episode 230 of The Hang Time Podcast featuring J.J. Redick.

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 229) Featuring Draymond Green

Author: NBA's Hangtime Podcastsekou.smith@turner.com (NBA Digital)
Wed, Mar 02, 2016


HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS Stephen Curry is the leader of that record-chasing pack in Oakland. No one disputes that. The reigning KIA MVP and frontrunner for the award this season is breaking his own records on his way to one of the greatest seasons in NBA history, no matter what Oscar Robertson or anyone else says about him and his game. But the undisputed vocal and emotional leader of the Golden State Warriors remains Draymond Green. And the fact that Curry, Green and fellow All-Star Klay Thompson are all as comfortable as they are in their roles is what gives the Warriors record-breaking chemistry. It's that chemistry that allows the Warriors, from top to bottom, to perform the way they do every night, never worrying about who gets the glory and praise. They are a true team, in every sense of the words, showing off All-Star unselfishness while chasing the NBA record for wins in a season (they remain on track to catch and even exceed the 1995-96 Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls' 72-win mark). Warriors coach Steve Kerr has a better handle on how to keep the good chemistry flowing than most, having played alongside Jordan and Scottie Pippen in Chicago. That might explain why he didn't let something like Green's blow up at halftime of the Warriors' Feb. 27 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder bother him. We talk Warriors and Warriors and more Warriors on Episode 229 of The Hang Time Podcast featuring Draymond Green, which also features high praise for Curry from Hall of Famer Rick Barry, courtesy of our friends at SiriusXM NBA Radio).

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 228) Featuring Klay Thompson and Arash Markazi

Author: NBA's Hangtime Podcastsekou.smith@turner.com (NBA Digital)
Wed, Feb 24, 2016


HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS History will determine where these Golden State Warriors rank all time. They have to finish the deal, of course. None of it will matter if the Warriors don't break the NBA record for wins in the regular season (the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls still own the top spot at 72 wins) But Klay Thompson and the Warriors are not intimidated by the task. Thompson told us during All-Star Weekend that the chase for 73 wins is on. And the Warriors are currently ahead of the pace, 50-5 and counting. Where will the Golden State Warriors rank all time? Ahead of those outlandish Michael Jordan-led Bulls? Certainly alongside them and the Showtime Lakers, the Larry Bird-led Celtics, the Shaquille O'NealKobe Bryant-led Lakers and others. We debate that and so much more on Episode 228 of The Hang Time Podcast featuring Thompson and Arash Markazi of ESPN.com, a Los Angeles native who provides a local perspective and also schools us on Echo Fox (owned by our very own Rick Fox). *** LISTEN HERE: http://www.nba.com/.element/mp3/2.0/sect/podcastmp3/NBA/podcast/20160224_hangtime_podcast.mp3 As always, we welcome your feedback.

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS We're caught in that strange stretch of the NBA calendar right now, days removed from a stellar All-Star Weekend in Toronto and hours away from the wildly unpredictable trade deadline (Thursday at 3 p.m. ET) that sets the tone for the stretch run of every season. Can the Golden State Warriors finish the deal and chase and even break the Chicago Bulls' hallowed, NBA-record 72-win season? Can the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder or anyone else in the Western Conference catch up to the Warriors? And is anyone willing to gamble whatever it takes to join the elite out west? In the Eastern Conference, all eyes are on Cleveland, where Tyronn Lue and LeBron James have to bring everyone (Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and everyone else) together in their quest to make a return trip to The Finals where they can get another shot at the Warriors and finishing what they started last year That's why we're kicking off the stretch run of the season for The Hang Time Podcast with a double-dose of Cavs, talking to both Lue (during All-Star Weekend) and the team's executive producer of multi-media and play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod. We dig deep in an effort to find out exactly what to expect from the Cavaliers the rest of the way, while also wrapping up our All-Star thoughts (big ups to young skywalkers Zach LaVine and Aaron Gordon for the best Verizon Slam Dunk showcase in years) and looking ahead to what we think might go down at the trade deadline. Check it all out on Episode 227 of The Hang Time Podcast featuring Tyronn Lue and Fred McLeod of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 226) Back Together Again

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS It took a while, nearly two months, but the crew is back together again. And just in time for the latest Game of the Century on Super Bowl eve (Thunder visiting the Warriors), a vintage effort from Kobe Bean Bryant and next week's All-Star extravaganza in Toronto. That's right, The Hang Time Podcast crew is reunited this week to discuss, debate and drill down on the hottest topics around the league and yes, that means the elusive Rick Fox has finally been located. He's been busy the past couple of months doing prep work for the All-Star Game's visit to his native Toronto (where he swears we're going to be on the VIP list at Drakes restaurant and every other hot spot throughout All-Star Weekend). We needed the entire crew to sort out the mess in Phoenix (Earl Watson taking over for Jeff Hornacek), to address the rumors that Kevin Durant could be headed to join Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in free agency, the state of the Lakers (and their precocious rookie D'Angelo Russell, who is caught in the middle of a tug of war between his coach Byron Scott and the man who trained him in the lead up to the Draft, Clippers' analyst Don MacLean), the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers under Tyronn Lue (and the new super friends LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love) and so much more. some wicked resistance from the champs, who shouldn't have to do anything else to convince the remaining non-believers that luck had nothing to do with their championship run last season. Crazy season (the NBA trade deadline) is near, so you'll have to forgive us for diving in on so many different topics. But it's been so rare this season that we've been at full strength that we simply could not resist. Check it all out on Episode 226 of The Hang Time Podcast where the crew gets back together again.

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 225) Featuring Marc J. Spears

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS Is there anyone else? Anyone else? Because the Golden State Warriors are ready and willing to do horrible things to you on the basketball court. Just ask the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls and the San Antonio Spurs, yes the Spurs, who have all felt the wrath of Stephen Curry and the Warriors recently. If you think you are coming for the Warriors' crown, you better brace yourself for some wicked resistance from the champs, who shouldn't have to do anything else to convince the remaining non-believers that luck had nothing to do with their championship run last season. This is a juggernaut, and potentially one of the NBA's all-time great teams, provided they finish what they have started this season. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports helps us put it all in context on Episode 225 of The Hang Time Podcast, where we examine the Warriors and their monstrous run as well as the fallout in Cleveland from David Blatts firing and Tyronn Lues hiring the latest drama in the seemingly never-ending saga that is LeBron James and his return to The Land. We give you all that and much more on Episode 225 of The Hang Time Podcast featuring Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 224) Green or Griffin?

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS Draymond Green or Blake Griffin? Who would you take between these two elite power forwards, each with their own unique set of skills, to start your team? Do you ride with the perennial All-Star, the four-time All-NBA pick and sure thing that is Griffin? Or do you rock with the NBA champion, the walking triple-double/human jack-knife that is Green? It's a great debate and one that we delve into on Episode 224 of The Hang Time Podcast. There really is no wrong answer, when you think about it. Both Griffin and Green are on the short list of players at their position who are universally considered game changers. They do it in different ways, of course. But their value to their respective teams cannot be disputed. Would the Golden Warriors have risen to a championship level without the contributions of Green? Even with All-Stars like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson doing their thing, the easy answer is no, absolutely not. Would the Los Angeles Clippers have scratched and clawed their way out of the abyss the past few years without the rise and shine of Griffin? Nope. Chris Paul is the man that stirs the drink, but even he admits that the Clippers go as Griffin goes. We talk Green and Griffin, recap the Warriors' smashing of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers during the NBA's Martin Luther King Jr. Day showcase, discuss our picks for the Eastern and Western Conference All-Star rosters and much more on Episode 224 of The Hang Time Podcast.

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 223) Featuring Dominique Wilkins

Author: NBA's Hangtime Podcastsekou.smith@turner.com (NBA Digital)
Wed, Jan 13, 2016


HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS Comparing NBA eras, be it individuals or teams, is often a painstaking process that relies more on your intuition and sharp eye than it does any real science. That's one reason why Hall of Famers like Dominique Wilkins, do their best to stay away from the ghost chasing many of us do when we try to rate the basketball legends of the past and present. So when Larry Bird is asked to assess his vaunted 1986 Boston Celtics and the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors, there's really not a right or wrong answer. There is only his perception of what those teams accomplish in their respective eras and the fantasy of what it would be like to see Bird, Kevin McHale and Dennis Johnson match up against Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. Same goes for any glorified rankings of the top players in league history at any position (#ESPNrank is stirring up fantastic debates these days) or any other attempt to reflect the current crop of superstars and teams against their historical counterparts. Too many of the dynamics have changed from say 30 or 40 years ago to now. There are fare too many variables to get a handle on anything other than a theory about who would come out on top in any hypothetical equation. None of that stopped us from quizzing Wilkins about these very topics, and so much more, Episode 223 of The Hang Time Podcast. Just because there are very few easy answers doesn't mean you don't ask the question. So see if you can make sense of it all on this week's episode.

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 222) Featuring Greg Anthony

Wed, Jan 06, 2016


HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS The Commissioner has spoken. He believes Kobe Bryant belongs on center stage at NBA All-Star Weekend next month in Toronto. And judging by the returns from the All-Star balloting, the fans not only agree with Adam Silver, they plan on making sure it happens. They'll get no argument from us. We also believe that 20 years of stellar service, on and off the court, as one of the league's global ambassadors deserves the royal treatment at Kobe's final All-Star Game appearance. NBA TV analyst Greg Anthony is on board with that plan as well. He agrees that the All-Time greats deserve to go out the right way, especially during All-Star Weekend, the same way Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan did before Kobe. Anthony joins us on Episode 222 of The Hang Time Podcast, our first show for 2016, where we also discuss the plight of Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver and his millennial problems, the state of affairs around the league, the playoff picture in the Eastern and Western Conferences. We try to make sense of it all on the first installment of The Hang Time Podcast for this calendar year.
