BASKETBALL PARTY THIRTEEN!

Posted on by

BASKETBALL PARTY!

BASKETBALL PARTY episode thirteen enters its rebellious age as the premier NBA podcast featuring two adult women talking to one another. This episode we can’t agree on anything, really, from Kevin Durant’s sassy comments to the press to the function of Twitter on #NBATradeDeadline day. We go long on what was one of the most insane ten minutes of trading in recent NBA memory, focusing on KG’s “homecoming” and the narrative arc of someone’s career, not to mention what wine baths are like in Dallas. BASKETBALL PARTY’s alright for fighting!

BASKETBALL PARTY!

BASKETBALL PARTY episode twelve finishes off our tweendom as the premier NBA podcast featuring two adult women talking to one another. This episode we discuss Kim’s major distaste for the act of subtweeting, how to repurpose the All Star Game so it fits our particular interests and needs, and the confrontational commentary style of Charles Barkley, among many other tangents including our future arena plans.

BASKETBALL PARTY episode ELEVEN returns from worldwide traveling as the premier NBA podcast featuring two adult women talking to one another. In this back-to-an-hour-ish episode, we discuss Adam Silver’s proclivity toward chiaroscuro-based portraiture, ESPN making calls on whether or not you watch the Knicks or celebrity bowling, and how we will all deal with the possibility of Pop retiring.

BASKETBALL PARTY!BASKETBALL PARTY episode TEN (double digits awww yeah) cements our status as the premier NBA podcast featuring two adult women talking to one another. This episode, we discuss the slippery slope of NBA crossover promotions, from the Timberwolves’ HBO’s GIRLS-themed night to the Hawks’ Tinder Night. Our special guest and correspondent from the front lines of “Swipe Right Night” is writer Beca Grimm. We all take a deep dive into dating dudes while loving sports (or not, in Beca’s case) and whether or not Kim and I anticipate ever having to fly a controversial HOUSE DIVIDED FLAG in our futures. (Side note: housedividedflags.com does NOT rep Ohio State or Cincinnati. We remain confused.)
