Hang Time Podcast (Episode 63)

HANG TIME STUDIOS — Eight days of NBA action is all we needed to fire up the engines here at the hideout. Eight days of highlights, heroics and high drama.

And you know whenever there is NBA drama (good and/or bad) to be discussed, we do it on the Hang Time Podcast.

We rounded up a crew of experts to chop it up with us this week.

— Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman joined us to break down the Thunder and the latest drama surrounding Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

— Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated dove in during the Ricky Rubio festival, which included us trying to finally settle the debate as to who is really driving the Rubio bandwagon, while also dropping a little Floyd Mayweather Jr.Manny Pacquiao knowledge on us.

— Tom Ziller of SBNation and Sactown Royalty  helped us close out the show with the latest on Demarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings and all the craziness that comes with that mess.

Eight days and we get all this and more. If you have any suggestions or topics you’d like to see us cover as the season rolls along, let us know in the comments or on Twitter.


As always, we welcome your feedback. You can follow the entire crew, including the Hang Time Podcast, co-hosts Lang Whitaker of SLAM Magazine and Sekou Smith of NBA.com, as well as our super producer Micah Hart of NBA.com’s All Ball Blog.

    “The Wolves began the new season with 8 million new fans that would be following JJ Barea (Puerto Ricans)”

      60% wins or 0.600, excuse me

    • Pedro says:

      Jake, we Puerto Ricans are fans of differente teams, but we have a special feeling for the guys that play in the Puerto Rican Olympic team: like Arroyo, Balkman and Barea.
      I like to see the games of Miami, Lakers, Boston, Chicago, Orlando etc. to be able to see the best playesr of the world in action. But also I like to see playing the few local boys that have reach that level of competition.

      Regardsl .

  2. bob says:

    I would. If I understood.
    0.600 = 60% wins, not 600%. Qualify, perhaps?

    This guy Love is unbelievable.
    Rubio looks like a future star
    I think the Wolves would be able to reach at least 600 percent in the winning column and clasiffy
