Ep. 893: Ricky!

On Monday’s live episode of “The Fix,” The Jones list their NBA weekend winners and losers. Thumbs up for Ricky Rubio’s return, both L.A. teams, the streaking Raptors, Kyrie Irving’s first MSG moment, and Damian Lillard’s game-winner. Thumbs down for Monty Williams, the tired Boston Celtics, Deron Williams, and Joel Przybilla getting suspended one game without pay for this!

All that, plus Jose Calderon’s professionalism, Seinfeld, and ball-punching.

  1. Please bring the old player back. I’m a day behind on all episodes now!

  2. Re: the 0.3 second play, why not do more of a volleyball set-type shot? Basically run an “alley-oop” play except out at the 3-point line.

    Also, Batum definitely had 6 blocks (one was an inexcusably bad foul call against Anthony Davis).

    • that was my thought too. if you find a leaping-lane from the 3pt line, you wouldn’t even have to set the ball very far, and you’d be elevated making it harder to block.

    • I thought that too a couple years back: I don’t know if we talk about the same kind of move but I even practiced a kind of set-type shot where your feet don’t really leave the ground and you just, well, “set” the ball towards the basket – the ball touches your hand for just a split second. technically it works but it’s pretty hard, kind of hurts and looks super stupid. I can’t remember actually hitting a three though, I think I lost interest at some point.

    • I was gonna post the same thing, i feel like you can practice the volley enough to have some sort of control over it. Kevin Love might break a knuckle though.

  3. Is this pumping Dwight gave to the Spurs what you were thinking about, Tas?


  4. Yea the new player stops at random spot and the page has to be refreshed in order to restart. Can we get the quick video postings back please? Many thanks

  5. Another loser of the weekend. Toko Shengelia going for the shoulder bump with Joe Johnson post game winner https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=mTIsWoQS8cs#t=53s

  6. seriously guys, this new audio player sucks.

  7. Not being allowed to punch the ball was one of James Naismith’s original rules. He was worried that guys would miss and punch each other in the face.

  8. You can’t punch the ball. It’s a technical. You can hit it with an open hand but not a closed fist. Tony Allen did a punch pass in the finals and got T’ed up.

    • This is true, otherwise an AFL pass would be super effective in the game from time to time. Ask Lee he will know this being a fellow Aussie

  9. Thought I would mention that the trumpets that helped with the celebration of Batum’s whoa boy/first Dolly Parton of the year actually sounded like they were ‘saying’: Nic Batum! Thought it was on purpose but nobody referenced it. Real slick, guys!

  10. oh and btw: yay! ricky! he’s finally back! way to go, league pass.

  11. I’d love to have the last 3 seconds of the show as JE and Trey hear Tas’ last thought as a GIF

  12. This Tas dude is a Calderon-hater!

  13. The first 1:30 – girls indeed! Right down to the bladder control.

  14. Its pretty dorky that I recognize yalls weirdo drops but isnt the one where you’re about to give batum the who boy a sound from crush the castle..l.

  15. Not to get all Bill Simmons on you here guys,
    But Boston…Bill Russell, blah blah blah.
    Oden, any reason it shouldn’t happen?
    Talking about old in the face.

    If not, surely they’ve got to trade away Jeff Green/Bass/Fab Melo/Barbosa for whoever they can get right?
    Realistically all you get back is a poo poo platter, but yeah…
    Ideally the guy they’d want right now would be Sideshow Andy, but that is not going to happen. Although Jeff Green’s contact almost matches up almost exactly?

  16. I really like what you guys are up too. Such clever work
    and exposure! Keep up the wonderful works guys I’ve added you guys to our blogroll.

    area . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this website.
