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

On today’s seven-year anniversary episode, The Basketball Jones discuss the 2013 NBA All-Star Game starters before selecting their seven reserves. Which Bulls player deserves to make it? Is Ibaka more deserving than Marc Gasol? And do Rondo and Garnett being voted in hurt Pierce’s chances of making the team?

All that, plus surprising rookies, the NBA on HBO, whether the Hawks should trade Josh Smith, “Storage Wars,” shitty teams with bright futures, and a few of our favorite TBJ moments from the past seven years.

Happy birthday, guys!

All that, plus Hoop Data, Tyrus Thomas’ wife, mountain biking, The Alan Parsons Project, sexy NBA coaches, and a guy named Laird. Seriously. Laird. That’s his name. Say it out loud.

On today’s show, The Jones break down the San Antonio Spurs’ starters controversy. Did Coach Pop’s decision to rest Parker, Duncan, and Ginobli cheat fans? Did David Stern make things worse by getting involved? Does Danny Green really need the time off? The guys also evaluate the fairness of Rondo’s suspension, the wisdom of starting Derek Fisher over Darren Collison in Dallas, and the likelihood that the Lakers will trade Pau Gasol.

All that, plus a Michael Jordan fashion faux pas, Beyonce puns, Russian hats, and a helpful list of statues for Blazers’ rookie Damian Lillard to avoid.
