Hang Time Podcast (Episode 102) Featuring Sean Grande and Bill Bellamy

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — The season of any NBA team can change in an absolute instant.

One false move, one wrong step and that’s it.

Dream season over.

Or not.

In the case of the Boston Celtics. Not everyone is ready to wave the white flag on their season now that Rajon Rondo‘s season is finished, courtesy of the torn right ACL the Eastern Conference All-Star starter suffered over the weekend.

Sean Grande, the voice of the Celtics and a man who we agree is quite possibly the best play-by-play announcer in the world … in his price range,” isn’t so sure Rondo’s injury is the season-altering moment it appeared to be.

Comedian/actor/hoops buff and all around renaissance man Bill Bellamy has his own ideas on Rondo, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Los Angeles Clippers, teaming up with Rick Fox on a new sitcom (“Mr. Box Office”), Brian McKnight‘s NBA aspirations, Kobe Bryant, his (Bellamy’s) cousin Shaquille O’Neal, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, the difference between working in Hollywood films and sitcoms, his failed attempt at being adopted by Will Smith and a whole lot more on Episode 102 of the Hang Time Podcast.

We also revisit the highlights from the Miami Heat’s recent trip to the White House, where they enjoyed a little quality time with President Barack Obama, and also crossed another item off of the Hang Time Podcast topic bucket list when Grande decided to drop a little CM Punk/WWE knowledge on us.

We couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried.

Dive in with Episode 102 of the Hang Time Podcast to see if you can make sense of it all!

    I really enjoy these. I wish they would touch on some lower key teams sometimes instead of Lakers every week. Talk about the Raptors, the Suns, the Kings, etc. They have great basketball commentary, I just wish they’d apply that commentary to teams I don’t follow and don’t know much about.

    Another excellent pc. Bill Bellamy was surprisingly interesting with his basketball commentary.
