Fresh off the completion of NBA (D-League) All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, RidiculousUpside.com hosted our tenth podcast of the season.
Packed with intriguing talent and prospective NBA players, the D-League All-Star Game did not disappoint. Like the NBA exhibition, the minor league's midseason classic was a matchup with high powered offenses and plenty of running and gunning as players raced up and down the court hoping to pour in the points.
What's more, the related competitions were arguably even more exciting. Fort Wayne Mad Ants' swingman Tony Mitchell and his high-flying counterparts made the Slam Dunk Contest one to remember. One could even say it was better than the NBA's contest from later that evening.
Thus, there was plenty to discuss from an eventful weekend, and even more to ponder as we look ahead towards the rest of the minor league season. With that in mind, RidiculousUpside.com welcomed a writer who's just as passionate as we are about D-League basketball, to our latest podcast: Adam Johnson of SeaDubsCentral.com.
The writer's new site centers around Santa Cruz Warriors basketball, and even features some related D-League and NBA tidbits as well. Johnson spoke with us at length about his All-Star impressions; what was fun to watch, what could have better, etc.
With the Warriors having three All-Stars in New Orleans (Seth Curry, Hilton Armstrong, and Cameron Jones), Johnson was certainly someone who had his fingers on the pulse of the action this past weekend.
What's more, the writer raised some interesting questions. Will Pierre Jackson earn an NBA call-up this season? Did Rockets' assignee Robert Covington deserve to win M.V.P. at the NBADL All-Star Game?
Take a listen to our latest show for all of that and more, as myself (Keith Schlosser) and RU contributor Dakota Schmidt shared our thoughts post All-Star as always, too.
