John and Mike are back with Dave to recap a thrilling 2019 U.S. Open Championship at Pebble Beach.  Gary Woodland outlasts Brooks Koepka to win his first major championship with some great scores and fantastic shots along the way.  The guys look at his somewhat surprising run to the title, then look at a pretty competitive field on the leaderboard.  Later, a look at how the gorgeous Pebble Beach Golf Links played out, then some quick hitters on FOX's lackluster broadcast quality, a preview of the upcoming PGA Tour Schedule, then a preview of the next Golf Major, the Open Championship at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland.

Chris and Dave are joined by guest Tom in NJ for this week's DITCOW "NBA Report" Podcast.  The Toronto Raptors pull the upset and beat the Warriors for the NBA Championship in Game 6.  Then, only about 36 hours later, the Lakers and Pelicans complete a massive trade that sent superstar Anthony Davis to the Lakers for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and three years worth of first round draft picks.  We get into all the details, first from what was a fantastic NBA Finals and a great performance for the winning Raps, then a look at this blockbuster deal that could get the Lakers back on track, and lastly we look ahead to Thursday's NBA Draft with the well known top three prospects: Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, and R.J. Barrett.   What value can be had with the rest of the first round during this top-heavy draft?  Will De'Andre Hunter, Jarett Culver, and Cam Reddish be big playmakers in the pros as well?  A fully packed episode covering the transition from a terrific playoff season into a chaotic offseason for the Association.

Podcast: NBA Report - Warriors Survive Elimination, KD Achilles Setback, More NBA Finals Talk (06-11-19)

June 11th, 2019 · Comments

2019-06-11-nbareport.jpg

Chris and Dave return for our latest NBA Finals update podcast.   We recap a thrilling, fantastic, dramatic Game 5 in Toronto where the Warriors survive elimination and go from down 3-1 to down 3-2 with the series retruning to Oracle Arena for one last home game.  The Warriors cleared Kevin Durant to play Game 5 with his continuing injury and he played very well... until he tore his achilles tendon and left the game, severly threatening his long term prospects in Free Agency.   Was playing KD for game 5 a mistake?  Later we look at the Raptors side of the game, coming back from a double digit deficit to lead by six with 2:30 remaining in the fourth quarter, only to call a timeout, stop their momentum and blow the six point lead.   Did they also blow the strategy for the final possession of the game?

Not only do we look at all the nuances of Game 5, but we look ahead to the rest of the series and offer our predictions of who takes the title between a short-handed Warriors team and a hungry but inexperienced Raptors team.  Do the guys predict a Toronto title in Game 6 or a winner-take all Game 7 on Sunday?   All this and more on the latest "NBA Report" DITCOW show.

Podcast: NBA Report - 2019 NBA Finals, Warriors Injuries (06-04-19)

June 4th, 2019 · Comments

2019-05-29-nbareport.jpg

This week on the DITCOW "NBA Report," Chris and Dave look at the NBA Finals so far with the series tied 1-1 going back to Oakland.  Dave covers why the Raptors may have let the series get away in game 2 following an 18-0 run by Golden State in the 3rd quarter.   Chris runs down the Warriors injuries: Durant, ruled out for Game 3, Looney, ruled out for the rest of the series, Iguodala, possibly nursing some pain, and Thompson, ruled with a significant hamstring strain and could be less effective for Game 3.  Do these injuries open the door for the Raptors or will their balanced attack so far see another setback similar to the second half of Game 2 back in Toronto?  We'll offer predictions for the remainder of the series and other NBA news and notes.
