Ep. 907: Blowout Central

On Tuesday’s live episode of “The Fix,” The Jones discuss Spoelstra benching Wade and Bosh, Hayward’s big shots, the courtside Jazz fan who got ejected, whether Eric Bledsoe is the best backup point guard in the league, Matt Barnes’ basketball IQ, Wall’s impact, Ish Smith’s hops, and the Hawks’ hilarious first half.

All that, plus a round of Crossfire, which includes the worst players to ever start an All-Star Game, new excuses for the Lakers, and beavers.

  3. Guys, is it really that surprising that Lebron can guard a center like Jefferson?

    Lebron is a BIG power forward. I’ve seen him as a PF for a while now. We could have an argument over what his true/best position is but I don’t think it’s debatable that Lebron has the body of a big power forward. He’s only a little smaller than Karl Malone the player who defined the prototype of the big bruising power forward.

    Lebron is amazing, but -given his body- it really isn’t that amazing that he can guard Al Jefferson or any other big for that matter.

    • Think you’re missing the point a bit. The amazing part, to me at least, is that LeBron can guard a giant center like Al Jefferson AS WELL AS a super quick point guard, like, say Chris Paul.

      Pretty sure Karl Malone wasn’t doin’ that.

      • Point taken. And I agree. The remarkable thing is that he has the body of a big power forward but can still guard super quick (or in Paul’s case super-slippery) point guards.

      • Chris Paul might not be the best example, though, as I’m pretty sure he would take Lebron (or anyone else for that matter) apart if they went 1 on 1.

      • young Karl Malone started at SF, then bulked up and became a fixture at PF. Not the same thing as LeBron who was a PG, then grew into a PF. Going from 3 to 4 is a lot less than going from 1 to 1,2,3,4.

        LeBron is a beast.

  4. Anyone else having problems with the embedded audio player? It will play for a few minutes and then randomly stop and I have to reload the page and find the spot again.
    Bit of a pain…

  5. Just wanted to add:

    Skeets as Vega
    Tas as Zangief
    Leigh as Chun Li
    MattyO as Blanka (spinning and rolling comes naturally)
    JD as M. Bison
    and of course Trey as E. Honda

  6. Skeets be hating hard on them dudes in the booth.

  7. Book-off Pay-off: The loser (or maybe winner?) takes Trey beaver spotting in a canoe.

    Skeets, why don’t you say, “Step into the crossfire!” any more? I still do when I’m listening.

  8. There was fan that got tossed during the Heat game in Sacremento too. He was so loud that you could hear him in the background of the cast on Leaguepass. He was getting stuck into Tyreke Evans at one point, shortly before he got removed and it sounded like he was using some pretty abusive language. Maybe they were both audible on broadcasts and therefore had to be removed?

  9. Holy shit. If you don’t have a gif of Caron Butler’s reaction to Jamal Crawford just destroying the Rockets single handedly to start the fourth, you (I mean Trey) have failed me.

  10. Apparently people were complaining about the length of the podcasts- and this week you guys have been keeping it to about the 35 minute mark…But, I actually rather enjoyed the longer winded versions of these things as they got me through brutal LA traffic quite swimmingly. So can we make some sort of a compromise and settle for 40 minutes? Hmmm? :)

  11. Also, has anyone ever commented on Skeets’ potty mouth? You guys should have a swear jar !
