Beckley Mason of the New York Times and HoopsSpeak.com joins the podcast today and I couldn't be more excited about it. Beckley has been around the hapless New York Knicks quite a bit so far this season and stops by to talk about how depressing that locker room has been. Do you feel bad for Carmelo Anthony even if he's not going about it the most strategic way? Is Iman Shumpert's trade value dwindling? What is Andrea Bargnani doing out there?
The Oklahoma City Thunder seem to be back on the map after ending the 11-game winning streak of the San Antonio Spurs. Where has this resurgence come from? Are their role players just playing at a high level? Is Reggie Jackson as good as Beckley wants him to be? How legit is Steven Adams and would you take him over Kendrick Perkins?
We discuss all of this, plus Pearl Jam speaking for Seattle hoops, the Phoenix Suns, and internet companies.
