Day-to-Day Weekend Review: Long games, hot Heat, trade talk and more
Miss this week’s episodes of The Step Back’s Day-to-Day NBA podcast? Catch up with the Weekend Review, a compilation of what we talked about during the week. It’s ideal for weekend listening.
This week we looked at the longest NBA games ever, made sense of the latest NBA trade rumors, dove into the suddenly hot Miami Heat, daydreamed about the best NBA Finals stories, and considered Carmelo Anthony leaving the Knicks.
First, Jason Mann and his Over and Back Classic NBA podcast co-host Rich Kraetsch talk about last weekend’s four-overtime classic between Atlanta and New York and discuss the other 13 games in NBA/ABA history that have gone four overtimes or more.
Next Bryan Toporek joins us to figure out which NBA teams might be buyers and sellers and look at the trade talk surrounding Carmelo Anthony, Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade, DeMarcus Cousins, Serge Ibaka, Nerlens Noel, Paul Millsap and Ricky Rubio before the Feb. 23 trade deadline.
Then David Ramil, co-host of the Locked on Heat podcast, joins the program to look at how Miami, in the Eastern Conference cellar just weeks ago, has won nine in a row and is in the postseason hunt. We also examine the recent trade sending Miles Plumlee to the Hornets and Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes to the Bucks.
Then Matt Rutkowski of The Step Back looks at what potential matchups we think would be most interesting in the NBA Finals, from likeliest to literally impossible, and the various storylines we might expect in Cavaliers vs. Warriors Part 3.
Finally, Jared Dubin, host of the Locked on Knicks podcast, comes on to talk about the seemingly realistic possibility of Carmelo Anthony being traded by the New York Knicks and the top three Eastern Conference teams being subpar on defense.
