Jay-Z recently got a birthday cake that was a confectionary biography: 48 years of a life well-lived captured in one single cake. This, obviously, begs the question: what would Simon’s biographical bday cake include? But it’s not all dessert this week, as the two hosts delve into the recent trade that sent beloved big man Trevor Booker to Philadelphia in exchange for two of the NBA’s hottest prospects – Jahlil Okafor and Nik “Sauce Castillo” Stauskas – and a 2nd round pick. Also, a BONUS 5 minute chat with friend of the cast Lipsanity.
Topics addressed include (but are not limited to): why the Nets are like Rice Krispy Treats cereal (yes, there was a cereal version of the TREAT); which Net will play Tonya Harding in the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster; and why Quincy Acy should begin reflecting upon life after basketball. Share with all your Nets-loving friends and family, and please be so kind as to leave us a (5 star) review on iTunes (or wherever you get your podcasts). Thanks 😛
The episode kicks off with a heated argument between the two hosts regarding D’Angelo’s “character,” then moves onto more staid subjects: Rondae’s recent interview, Jarrett Allen’s Turkey Day budgeting, and Mozgov’s recent absence. Then the two celebrate tonight’s Nets victory, something that’s increasingly rare in this hostile NBA environment we’ve found ourselves in.
