The Last Dance: Episodes 9 and 10

The Last Dance: Episodes 7 and 8

EWhat better way to celebrate Mother's Day than dedicating two more hours to studying the greatness of Michael Jeffrey Jordan and the Chicago Bulls of the 1990s? We've got takes on Jordan's first retirement, his sojourn into professional baseball, MJ's notorious ferocity, Scottie Pippen's infamous "1.8 seconds" moment, and more. Plus, Scott takes a break from roasting Hassan (eventually) and turns his fire on a new sworn enemy: Jerry Reinsdorf.

The Last Dance: Episodes 5 and 6

EMuch like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were fueled by their contempt for Bulls GM Jerry Krause, ShotTakes feasts on the near-daily scorn we receive from our #1 critic: the Enemy of the Podcast, Mr. Hassan Halim. To maximize the success produced by this adversarial relationship, we invited Hassan on for this week's Last Dance breakdown. Tune in!

The ShotTakes 2020 NBA Awards Show

EWith the 2019-20 NBA regular season virtually over, it's as good a time as any to hand out our awards for this strange, truncated year. The MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, and Rookie of the Year honors were predictable sweeps, but we got into some intriguing debates when it came to Sixth Man, Most Improved Player, Coach of the Year, top executive, and All-NBA teams. Tune in for a heady recap of perhaps the strangest season in NBA history—but one that we truly hope is not over, yet.

The ShotTakes Dream Teams Draft

EAs the NBA's coronavirus sabbatical continues, we've tapped our creative juices in order to fill the content void. Tonight, we drafted our post-lockout (2011-12 to present) "dream teams" in an episode that was equal parts parlor game, theoretical debate, and journey through some of the great performances in recent NBA history. Rules: Each team drafts a starting five, two bench players, a coach, and a home court The team must be comprised of players and coaches from the 2011-12 NBA season to the present (snake draft) We are drafting specific player-seasons for which we believe the drafted player was at his apex (Example: in a 1990s draft, the first pick might be 1996 Michael Jordan, followed by 1993 Charles Barkley, 1994 Hakeem Olajuwon, etc.) No need to pick individual coaching seasons, unless you are really inspired by somebody’s work in a particular year. The home court can be located in any climate-controlled facility on Earth where an NBA-sized floor can be installed and specta...

ShotTakes Docket No. 001: Oakley v. Dolan

EYou might remember the infamous night in February 2017 when former Knicks forward Charles Oakley was ejected and banned indefinitely from Madison Square Garden—it was quite the stir in the NBA world, as was the ill-advised Knicks PR campaign against Oakley that involved salacious press releases and James Dolan media appearances designed to sully the former All-Star's reputation. But you probably haven't delved into the amazing—amazing—litigation that ensued in Oakley v. Dolan, so we've provided our expert legal/basketball analysis for a very special episode of ShotTakes. We spend the bulk of the time unpacking Oakley's initial complaint against Dolan and various Knicks entities, because, well, it is a real treat! Enjoy, and stay safe out there, everybody.
