Hang Time Podcast (Episode 64)

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – You want to talk Washington politics, go somewhere else.

But if you want to talk Washington basketball, everything from the Dallas Mavericks’ visit to the White House to whether or not John Wall and the Wizards can keep Flip Saunders from getting stuck on the hot seat, you have come to the right place.

Episode 64 of the Hang Time Podcast has a decidedly Washington flavor, courtesy of two of our guests:

– Our main man Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com joins us to talk about the reigning world champions and their recent visit to the home and workplace of President Barack Obama, among other things. (He comes on after our debate about what the Magic need to do with Dwight Howard and what the Chicago Bulls could have to do with it, courtesy of our guy Shaun Powell from NBA.com)

– Michael Lee of The Washington Post put the finishing touches on this episode, helping us break down what’s gone wrong with the Wizards, who still have issues to sort through after winning their first game of the season.

– Sandwiched between those two is an entertaining stint with Denver Nuggets strength and conditioning coach Steve Hess, who is a must-follow on Twitter (and who is trying to get to 10K followers — help the man out!). Hess gives us the scoop on the challenges teams are facing in regards to keeping their players healthy and energized on a nightly basis during this abbreviated season with the compressed schedule.

There is also a new item on the agenda (you need to listen to find out) that we’ll need your help with. So make sure to share your feedback with everybody in the comments section and on Twitter.

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 55)

LOS ANGELES – And you though the first round of these NBA playoffs was crazy.

As shocking as it was for some to see the Western Conference No. 1 seed San Antonio Spurs go down to No. 8 seed Hang Time Grizzlies in the first round, the conference semifinal round has brought us yet another stunner. The two-time defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers are the latest upset victim, swept by the Dallas Mavericks, ending not only their threepeat quest and the Hall of Fame career of Phil Jackson.

How in the world did this happen?

We examine the reasons why, and so much more, on Episode 55 of the Hang Time Podcast this week with special guests Greg Anthony of NBA TV and CBS Sports, Earl K. Sneed of Mavericks.com and we even caught up with Atlanta Hawks power forward Josh Smith, whose Hawks are working on a potential upset of their own in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Hawks are tied 2-2 with the playoffs’ No. 1 overall seed Chicago Bulls. Game 5 is tonight at the United Center in Chicago.

You don’t want to miss this one. Check out Episode 55 and see why.

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Is the Rookie of the Year race over already?

Are the Dallas Mavericks’ title hopes in trouble now that Caron Butler could be lost for the season?

Like always, when there are pressing questions about anything dealing with the NBA, we have your answers here on Episode 38 of the Hang Time Podcast, which includes an appearance from our special guest co-host “3D” Dennis Scott of NBA TV.

(Sorry. The entire HTP crew is recovering from strep throat or some other holiday virus that causes all of our voices to sound stopped up, stuffed up or just plain messed up. We apologize in advance for sounding like Storm Troopers.)

LISTEN HERE:

We touched base with NBA.com’s rookie guru Drew Packham, author of the T-Mobile Rookie Ladder, to talk about Griffin, John Wall and all the other players vying for All-Rookie honors.

We also caught up with our main man Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com to talk about Butler, Dirk Nowitzki, Rick Carlisle, Mark Cuban and all things Mavericks.
