Join The Jones on the sonic journey that is The Overdose!

On today’s Overdose — which was recorded Thursday afternoon — The Jones discuss the Lakers’ chances at jumping the Jazz for that final Western Conference playoff spot, what some lottery teams have to look forward to, Dwight Howard’s comments about his ex-Magic teammates, the NBA’s most powerful, the idea of expansion, a quick flavor profile of Kobe’s new vino, and which contracts are the most “problematic.”

All that, plus chicken fajitas, Shaquille O’Neal quotes, a tight round of Pun-Gun, and why in the world it’s taking so long to get a preseason game or two in Australia. Honestly. Leigh Ellis is freakin’ out over here, man!

On today’s Overdose, The Basketball Jones discuss Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. What type of impact will J.J. Redick have in Milwaukee? Could the Kings stop screwing their fans for just one second? Why’d the Hawks hold on to Josh Smith? And which other teams that didn’t make a move really should have?

All that, plus a few of the league’s B.V.P’s (Best Value Contracts), NBA doppelgangers, gifts from Brad Miller’s wife, J.R. Smith’s “pipe,” and Trinidad James’ poppin’ jumpers in Lang Whitaker’s sweat. WOO!!

On today’s All-Star edition of The Overdose, The Jones — live from a hotel room in Houston — look back at the first half of the NBA season. What’s surprised us after 50 or so games? Who’s the leading MVP, Coach of the Year, Most Improved, etc.? And what are a few Texas-sized bold predictions for the second half?

All that, plus Instagrams, whether we’re being “catfished,” Leigh’s delicious “Tweet of the Weak,” a really rough round of Pun-Gun, hippies’ rehabilitation, Will Ferrell, Mike Bibby, and much, much more.
