On today’s show, Skeets and Tas bring you the NBA weekend’s winners and losers. On the upside: Amar’e's impressive scoring streak, the Bulls’ resilient play and Bill Simmons’ broadcasting debut. On the downside: The Kings and a hobbled Tyreke Evans, the Bobcats’ and Hornets’ missing offense, and the Clippers/VDN’s disastrous final play. All that, plus fans hitting half-court shots, ‘Melo to NYC talk, a new B-Ball Picks winner, and Tas Melas reports from his UFC weekend in Montreal.

  1. I enjoyed Bill Simmons call of the game Friday night. It was fresh compared to some of the boring monotone announcers out there. I think he timed his jokes well

  2. Thanks for giving the Bulls some dap, guys. They had an awesome weekend. Props to Tas for starting the week as a fashion icon. I gotta get me one of those “get out of jail free” shirts. Or at least a Hanes tee and a stencil.

  3. Losers: definitely the Clips

    11 TOs in about 5:30 playing time – ugh

  4. Come one guys you gotta show some more love to the Raptors. They set a franchise record and Bayless ties his career high in points. Ben Wallace’s 3 pointer.

  5. UFC Jones? And how can you barely mention the record-breaking Craptors? I’m not even a fan and my dick was still hard

  6. Bill Simmons! He was great to talk to at his book signing in SF the night before the broadcast

  7. Oh yeah, I forgot about Bayless awesome game. I think he’s gonna turn out great. I really believe in that kid (I know you guys kind of don’t).

  8. You guys got me totally addicted to that “Stepping on the Beach” song. I’m working at my desk with my headphones on, and I feel like announcing the starting lineup of the Miami Heat out loud right now. Must… resist… urge…

  9. If the Knick fans REALLY want Melo, they need to cheer him louder than they do the Knicks. Melo will know who NY really wants.

  10. Sterling is an absolute joke. That guy should not be a part of the NBA.

    I really think that other interested parties should be able to throw their name in as a candidate for ownership, and then it should be put to a vote by the fans. It’s absurd that these owners can have no interest in actually winning, and can just all around take so much away from the league.

    I know a lot of Redskins fans who feel the same way about Dan Snyder right now. We need this to be a bit more democratic.
