Hang Time Podcast (Episode 82) With Fran Blinebury And Zach Lowe

HANG TIME PLAYOFF HEADQUARTERS — It seems like we were in this same space last week, with seasons on the brink, legacies on the line and eras on the verge of ending and beginning.

The teams might have changed but the circumstances stay the same during the NBA’s playoff season. It’s win-or-go-fishing time for both the San Antonio Spurs (tonight in the Western Conference finals) and the Miami Heat (Thursday night in the Eastern Conference finals).

We’re going to find out in the next 48 hours if Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and the rest of the Oklahoma City Thunder are ready to replace the Spurs’ Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili (not to mention the Lakers and Mavericks) as the new power of the Western Conference. And we’re also going to find out if Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and the rest of the Boston Celtics are ready to make one last stand in The Finals by taking down Miami’s LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

We’re diving in on all that and whole lot more in Episode 82 of the Hang Time Podcast with a couple of special guests, NBA.com’s Fran Blinebury and SI.com’s Zach Lowe.

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 superproducer Micah Hart of NBA.com’s All Ball Blog and the best engineer in the business, Jarrell “I Heart Peyton Manning” Wall.

    The talking heads , to include all of us bloggers had better face up or better yet. Sit back and let the players play the game. The NBA game has made and ever so slight turn from anything any of us can claim to have witness for the past twenty odd years or so. Someone needs to admit that descriptors of what roles players are slotted into has changed tremendously. LBJ, Durant , Westbook, Rondo, Cousins, Wall, Rose, J-Smooth, Howard, Ellis, Paul, Griffin , Love and countless others have changed the game. The announcers are courtside and can’t describe it. You darn well can’t sit in a studio looking at the latest technology and put a finger on it.To make a long wrap shorter!!! The fact is _____ these kids are BALLIN’………..like never before.
