Topics include: La Bomba’s hot start, Marc Gasol’s fourth foul, Durant’s three-point shooting, Chris Paul taking over the game late, Espana’s zone defense, Ibaka, Coach K’s celebration, and that LeBron dude.

We also discuss Team USA’s next coach, the tournament MVP, players we’re most excited to see in the NBA this coming season, and our favorite “peripheral” men’s basketball moment.

On today’s show, our national Dwightmare ends in a four-team trade. Does the addition of Dwight make the Lakers odds-on Larry O’Brien favorites? How did the Magic manage to get neither the 2nd nor the 3rd best player in this deal? Will 76er fans eat Andrew Bynum alive? With the addition of Iggy, is Denver the new “Lob City”?

We also breakdown the Olympic semifinals including, America’s three-point dominance, Spain’s gritty bench, the disappearance of Andre Kirilenko, and a sad Olympic goodbye to Manu Ginobili.

All that, plus the return of Ol’ Jasper, BMX bandits, and a 320-pound nose-picking Polish man.
