In the NO Podcast Episode 11: Team Crazy

Published: January 13, 2011

In episode eleven Michael and Ryan talk about the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors and the state of the Western Conference.  We also drool over Blake Griffin, wonder if Memphis or Houston can make a push, and Michael asks for your help in the comments with suggestions for turning the Sacramento Kings into Team Crazy.  Runtime just breaks 30 minutes.

    ok here is the uber crazy kings (some of the players are retired, but what the hell). first of all i don’t think tyreke is crazy enough so unfortunately you have to ship him out for someone crazier and that person is delonte west! than you trade for stephen jackson and ron artest, keep cousins at PF, and i don’t know how crazy whiteside is but i say you upgrade the unstableness at C with derrick coleman (i know he’s technically a 4, but he and cousins can switch). as far as the bench goes i sign marbury, spreewell, rodman, j.r. rider, than you go way back and get darryl dawkins as your backup C. i challenge anyone to come up with a more crazy, dysfunctional team, oh yea and for the coach you get bobby knight to coach some nba ball or find don nelson at whatever dive bar he’s currently at and coax him to come back by telling him he can drink openly during games.

    The guy who beat up his team mate because he won’t move his legs (to allow him to get out of the stands) is Renardo Sidney, what a psychopath

      Would love to know who people agree with more on those teams:

      Wilborn vs. Kornheiser
      The PTI guys
      Cowherd or Michaele Beadle
      Mike and Mike

      Please share- do you tend to agree with anyone over the other?

      For me:

      Golic, Kornheiser, and of all the PTI guys I would go with Platschke I think.

      Of course, regarding all of the sports analysts, writers, etc out there Bill Simmons is the most entertaining IMO (never miss a podcast or article) and I love Jason Whitlock’s way of examining issues- regardless of whether or not I agree with his conclussions.

        I listen to Mike and Mike, and Cowherd. The PTI guys are kind of annoying to me. But I don’t pay enough attention to them to really give you an honest answer. But of all those, I like Cowherd the best. Max Kellerman is the new LA guy out here. He’s actually a HUGE Chris Paul fan. He talks about him every day. First time I’ve seen anyone talk about the Hornets with interest out here. Although Jim Rome really respects CP too.

        I like Bill Simmons too. Broussard doesn’t bring much to the table other than breaking news.

        When it comes to sports, I don’t think anyone knows more than Wilbon and Kornheisher, but I give the edge to Wilbon b/c Korn is somewhat of a rabble rouser.
        Is Cowherd that guy who wears the oversized suit jackets with skinny jeans? He host SportsNation with that blonde right? Sorry Mac, but I can’t say I’m a fan. Nor do I like Simmons. However, I’ve only seen them on TV, never listened to their podcasts or read their articles.

        For me, Mike Wilbon, David Aldridge, Chris Broussard, and Ric Bucher are the guys to listen to. Dr. Jack Ramsey gets a notable mention.

        COWHERD SUCKS!!! i used to listen to him a lot and actually enjoyed him until i realized he’s just an elitist and that his favorite show is two and a half men (the worst show in history). also he only thinks you can be a successful leader in sports if you were raised by your dad. i think cowherd thinks he’s the bees knees but he never provides any insight into sports besides quoting different socio-economic demographics and talking down to people. also the only reason sportsnation is still on the air is because of michele beadle.

        I dislike most basketball writers.


        Zimmerman is a great NFL guy.

    unless their airplanes crash ? yikes .

    Minnesota is one of the most interesting teams in the league , but I think Rambis has to be the coach and when you said they should begin to move away from the triangle I hope you meant the opposite.

    Minnesota does have personnel problems namely their Detroit Piston’s style SF lock-jam, but they don’t need to abandon the triangle they have to truly accept it, they have to stop running their half ass triangle and commit.

    Ridnour could return to relevance in spot up 3 pt shooting role (ie. DFish/Paxton/Kerr)

    Love would absolutely thrive , the father of the triangle offense is the high post UCLA which he was simply born to play and frankly he deserves it.

    the spacing and passing required of the Bigs in the triangle would not only suit Kevin Loves game but also create a place for Darko and even Anthony Tolliever ( who may be the best passer on the team ) .

    Corey Brewer would have to accept a defensive stopper role , maybe like a penny less man’s Scottie Pippen mixed with a shannon brown / bj armstrong hype player )

    Webster has the IQ and range to play

    And then theirs Beasley who through the triangle will finally be elevated to his full potential , an almost official announcement that he is in fact the man in Minnesota ( well he and KLove , the triangle is a two mans game – MJ Scottie , Kobe Shaq , Kobe Pau ). this will empower the poor boy.
