For many of us the passing of Kobe Bryant and his daughter still seems surreal. She was going to be better than her dad in his own words and sadly the world will never get to see that happen... and as for Kobe... we grew up with Kobe and even though we never met him he felt like family. We saw him enter the league as a teenager, dominate as a man, and retire as an icon. What we didn't know was just how profound of an impact he was making outside of the public eye... and as the stories start to be shared now that he has passed one thing is absolutely certain... the legend of Kobe Bryant will never die.
Joe is solo on this episode of DTC catching up on the past few weeks across all sports and headlines. The womens world cup ends, Kawhi is an odd guy but improved the Clippers while hurting the Lakers, Westbrook is headed to Houston ... and just like that the NBA is full of dynamic duos! The Nats are surging in the standings, Trump is surging in his approval ratings, and DC is literally melting under the 100+ degree heat! Tune in and get caught up with Joe!
The Wizards have been busy acquiring young talent and draft picks while the Nets made a huge splash landing KD, Kyrie, and DJ... however, Joe believes the 76ers and Jazz are having better off-seasons while LP is on Boston and 20 thinks the Lakers are unbeatable if Kawhi joins them. The trio debate the crazy start to NBA free agency including DLo to the Warriors and IT to the Wiz. The boys also discuss the USWNT win over England and look ahead towards the World Cup finale too! Happy fourth of July to all from the crew at DTC!
Stevie and Joe are discussing the Nationals, the Phillies (& Bryce), and he Braves on this episode of DTC. Where does Max's performance last week rank amongst his other highlights, and can releasing a player HELP a team? Plus the duo touch on US Men's and Women's soccer, the Wizards number one draft pick, and pick winners of this weeks primary debate. Stay tuned for draft coverage and a lot more insight into the Wizards this week plus our Redskins coverage kicks-off in just 10 days from now!
LP, FP, 20, Canada, and Joe discuss what was the NBA Finals and MVP Kawhi's next move. The guys also discuss the confusion surrounding the Wizards, the chaos caused around the league by the injuries in the bay area, and expectations for the upcoming draft in a few days time. Harrison Barnes has opted out of his current deal, Al Horford too, and Brad Beal may be on the way to NOLA for the 4th pick too... crazy, this league is crazy! Joe also shares his thoughts on why the NBA has a big problem on its hands because people seem to care more about the post-season than the actual season. Does Mo Salah have a nice body? We will debate!
LP has the Warriors in 3, Canada has the Raptors in 6, Money has the Warriors in 7, FP is on the Warriors in 4, Stevie doesn't care, and Joe hasn't decided yet! The NBA Finals tip on Thursday night and Canada, Money, and Joe are on the podcast talking about matchups, betting lines, over/under, MVP candidates, and of course making predictions. Canada is convinced the Raptors will be fresh and the Warriors will be rusty after a week off, Money doesn't care and is adamant that with or without KD the Warriors will win, and Joe just wants everyone to bet the under on game 1 which is set way to high! The entire country is on the Raptors + all of North Mexico (aka Canada)... its the Finals and it starts Thursday!
Pete, Canada, and Joe discuss the greatest shot in Canadian basketball history, after listening to it in several languages, then put a bow on the 76ers season, then turn their attention to the Eastern and Western Conference Finals. First, in the east, can anyone stop the Bucks and their balanced rotation, and similarly in the west, are the Blazers deep enough to knock off the Warriors. The trio also discuss the Durant to Knicks rumor and speculate on the which team getting Zion would be the best for the NBA.... also CP3 is over-rated, Harden isn't as good as his stats, and the Nets may be the sleeper team to land some big-name free agents this summer.
Stevie and Joe are reunited for a two man lunchtime podcast discussing the upcoming Nationals season (1-8), the emerging Browns (9-15), the terrible Redskins (16-20), March Madness (21-26), and the presidential field of candidates (27-32) and cap everything off with a discussion about college and aunt Becky (33-36). This is literally a lunchable of sports and politics that will resonate with anyone who lives in DC and leave you laughing on your way home this afternoon. Welcome to spring 2019... and what the heck does Goose have on Dan?
The wait is over, the DTC podcast is back! Joe is riding solo today re-visiting the biggest sports topics of the past month from the Super Bowl to LeBron James, Jason Witten to Bryce Harper, and from Gov Ralph Northam to POTUS to Kim Jung Un, and literally everything in between… there is something for everyone! Joe discusses Tom Brady and his ridiculous career and Russel Westbrook and his ridiculous stat lines going back several seasons. He also gets into Kaep and his settlement with the NFL followed by his ridiculous request for $20m to play in the AAF or XFL. Will Kyler Murray be a Redskins? Probably not but Joe is confident that Antonio Brown will land in Jacksonville with St Nick while Lamar Jackson will fail in Baltimore. ESPN prayers answered as Witten returns to Cowboys and Bryce Harper will make approx $4,000 per plate appearance for the next 13 seasons in Philadelphia. DTC is back! Spotify, iTunes, GooglePlay, Podbean and TuneIn all carry our content, listen and share!
FP, 20, and Joe are talking about how the Saints and Rams should be forced to replay the end of the NFC championship game (1:30), how the Chiefs should have had an opportunity to touch the ball in OT (4:30), and why the NFL should immediately change the Overtime Rules and make all plays available for challenge (11:25). Also, Joe lays out a solid reason as to why all NFL challenges should be handled from New York and NOT on the field in real-time. Brady gets a chance to book-end his career with another win against the Rams in the Superbowl (21:30) and might he walk off and retire? The boys also discuss the #FireBruceAllen interview which was comical and painful and void of value all at the same time drawing similarities to the #FyreFestival and Billy McFarland +why the Wizards and @RealDealBeal are playing better right now!
