morrisonWelcome back for BASKETBALL PARTY episode 3, the premiere NBA podcast featuring two adult women talking to one another. Things got a little rough via Skype this time, so look out for the second half where we occasionally sound like robots, and for when it seems like Rahzel is our special guest. Hang in there, though, technical difficulties will eventually be resolved.

This episode we take on the opening night ring ceremony featuring Pop’s beard, Dwight Howard as the worst guy who contacts you on OKCupid, the celebrity parade in Cleveland this week featuring contributions from the Kool-Aid Man Mike, and the power of naps when it comes to decision making, among other hot takes.

If you want to watch a time-lapse video of Clippers to Lakers and add in your soundtrack to French Montana’s “Pop That” – go crazy!
