The Dontonio Wingcast Episode 018

Basketball Prospectus's Kevin Pelton and I are back from the holidays with a mega edition of The Dontonio Wingcast, our basketball podcast.  In this monster 68 minute episode episode taped Friday morning...

  • We look at the takeaway moments and developments from home Blazer wins over Los Angeles and Milwaukee and the home loss to Cleveland.
  • We discuss the prospect of Nicolas Batum's return and the pros and cons of using him as a power forward.
  • Kevin presents his famous statistical similarity projections for Dante Cunningham, Jeff Pendergraph and Jerryd Bayless. Some very interesting names on all three lists that will make you laugh and think.
  • I look back at the LeBron James pre-game incident with a fan who overstepped norms, Kevin searches for the right comparison in sports history, we discuss the security issues involved and address some of the questions raised in the many responses to the original post on the subject.    

You can subscribe to our iTunes feed or stream/download the mp3 here: Download The Dontonio Wingcast 018.  The mp3 is 62 megabytes.

Note: The audio kinks in our last episode are all ironed out this time around.
