Joey Zocco calls Ricky Funaro to talk about the Association as the trade deadline approaches. They touch on a potential Nets trade, the Grizzlies actual trade, the Hawks and Warriors great start, and much more. They also make some NFL Championship weekend game picks.
Joey Zocco talks with Ricky Funaro about what’s going on in the Association as we approach Christmas. They discuss the current state of the Nets and Knicks, why Mike Malone got fired, and where they think Lance Stephenson and Rajon Rondo will end up. (Of course Rondo gets traded literally hours after recording this podcast. Thanks Rajon)
So I realize I haven’t actually written anything in nearly a month, and I wanted to apologize to all of you who have been looking for new Zocco’s Modern Life content. I got busy with a new job and also a little lazy. While neither of those things are an excuse there is a lot of NBA, NFL and MLB offseason stuff to talk about.
I will use this notebook format to quickly touch on various topics from the past month in the NBA. I plan on doing an MLB podcast in the very near future to discuss some of the offseason moves that have occurred, and as you hopefully figured out by now NBA podcasts are always on the horizon.
Now that I got all of that out, lets get to my NBA notebook: Continue reading
Yes, the headline is intended to mimic the “MJ Being MJ” headline from last week when Michael Jordan took to Twitter to show his competitive nature is still alive and well. Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson was at his antics again last night when he video bombing new New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher after a 96-93 Knickerbocker win. Continue reading
LeBron James dominated (and continues to dominate) the headlines of the 2014 NBA Offseason just as he did four short years ago, but this time around his dominance is being perceived in a very different way. The one-hour televised special is a thing of the past; this year a letter announced where James would play along with Instagram posts asking and deciding what number The King should wear in his second stint with the Cavaliers.
James, along with the other big names who were free agents this offseason, made decisions on where to play in 2014-15 that would not be considered the norm in 2010. The “Big 3” craze started in the summer of 2010 when James decided to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Beach, and has tried to be duplicated on other teams ever since.
The 2014 ESPYs took place last night in Los Angeles and this year’s host definitely had his own style when hosting the sports awards show. Rapper and songwriter Aubrey “Drake” Graham not only hosted the show, but added numerous pre-taped segments that I think helped his performance out a lot.
In case you missed anything from the 2014 ESPYs all of Drake’s clips will be included below. I grade each segment Drake did throughout the show, and Drake’s Overall Grade can be found at the bottom of this page.
Drake got progressively getting funnier as the show went on. I thought his opening monologue was decent considering Drake never once called himself anything close to a stand up comedian.
Drake’s Opening Monologue Grade: C+
