Hang Time Podcast (Episode 173) Road Trip

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — That fatigue you hear in our voices is real. Chew up nearly 4,000 miles of American highway on a luxury bus in search of some basketball’s biggest names and you’d feel it, too. We did six cities in seven days and did not let up.

The Hang Time Road Trip was real. We lived every wild and crazy minute of it and you will get a chance to see all of the things we did Wednesday night on the Hang Time Road Trip wrapup special (10 p.m. ET, NBA TV). 

We witnessed the return of LeBron James in his first game back in Cleveland. We saw Pau Gasol‘s first steps as a Chicago Bull. We picked Larry Bird‘s brain about where the Indiana Pacers go from here. We got an in-depth explanation of the rebuilding plan in Philadelphia from Sixers CEO Scott O’Neal. We dove into the mind of Lance Stephenson, now of the Charlotte Bobcats. And we fired questions at Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher about the Knicks. And we even dipped into the college ranks with a guided tour of North Carolina’s pristine facilities with Roy Williams.

And that’s just the basketball portion of the trip.

We had just as much fun away from the game, touring the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I got my hair cut at President Obama‘s spot in Chicago, we watched Lang work the kitchen at Tony Luke’s and we all dined in fine fashion at Red Rooster, the world-famous Harlem eatery owned by celebrity chef and Knicks fanatic Marcus Samuelsson.

You’ll see all of that and more during Wednesday’s Hang Time Road Trip wrapup special on NBA TV Wednesday (10 p.m.) But in the meantime you can get a sense of the magnitude of the trip on Episode 173 of the Hang Time Podcast: The Road Trip

    I’ll sum up what (Larry Bird) was said in the interview: “Andrew Bynum has been excused from all team activities to deal with personal issues, yada yada we will still make playoffs even without Paul George and Lance Stephenson because Hibbert is key”. Enough said.

    I never experience problems with any other podcast, but this issue is COMMON when downloading the Hangtime podcast.

  3. Yinka Dare says:

    Something wrong with the file. Isn’t the first time this has happened either that there’s something wrong with it.

    Gotta step your game up, this is the official website of the NBA. #cmonson

    I love this podcast but it frequently will not download onto iTunes. I’ve downloaded it 3 times, the file processes but won’t add to my library as iTunes says the file is corrupted.

    Could this issue be looked into and resolved before the season starts? There is no point in having a great podcast people cannot hear.

    Many thanks
