HoopSpeak Live 57: The Summer Of YOLO (With Jack McCallum And Howard Beck)

I’m biased, but I happen to think this week’s HoopSpeak Live was a real treat. Two greats, Jack McCallum and Howard Beck, joined the show to discuss Jack’s Dream Team book, what’s going on with the Nets and Knicks, Steve Nash and the Lakers, Karl Malone’s likability and more. Also, Ethan argues that Dwyane Wade is better than Dwight Howard and Zach bids farewell to Darko Milicic on behalf of Wolves fans everywhere.

Here’s the whole show:

Here’s how it breaks down:

:00 – :05 – Intro + Zach’s Wolves update

:05 – :15 - Take The Bacon [How good is Dwight Howard?]

:15 – :18 – Bad Contract Talk

:18 – : 41 - Person of Interest – Jack McCallum

:41 – 1:03 - Person of Interest: Howard Beck

1:03 – 1:06 – Zach eulogizes the Darko Milicic era

Note: You can find the audio-only version of HoopSpeak Live on iTunes. If you subscribe and/or write us a review, I promise that Zach will call you and have a brief conversation about Darko Milicic.

HoopSpeak Live 30: The Clips

On today’s HoopSpeak Live, we discussed an NBA season that is just THREE DAYS AWAY. Get excited. Do a dance. Buy the 2011-2012 edition of Pro Basketball Prospectus because you want to be as smart as Kevin Pelton. And, obviously, watch our show, which features interviews with Pelton himself and Howard Beck of The New York Times. Ethan had to miss this one, so Tom Haberstroh of The Heat Index jumped aboard as a guest host. Here are the clips:
