A (Not Terribly Upbeat) Conversation About the State of the Mavericks

If you’ve followed me for a bit, you probably know that I continue to co-host The Athletic’s Mavericks podcast, 77 Minutes in Heaven, with The Athletic’s Tim Cato and Dave DuFour. If not, well, now you know. I promise it’s good listening and well worth your download.

The reason I bring that up today is this week’s episode is something of a StrongSide takeover, as our Jake Kemp joined me and Tim to discuss [gestures broadly at the last two weeks of rather concerning basketball developments]. We talk about everything from the shooting and defense to the implications of Jason Kidd’s eyebrow-raising remark about his team “not being built to play defense” — spoiler alert: he’s right — to a re-examination of the Josh Green pick in light of TCU alum Desmond Bane torching Dallas last week (this one especially pained me) and more.

So if you want to consume some StrongSide in a different format (and a different venue), pull up a chair and join us.
