All Balls Don't Bounce Attacks The Airwaves: ABDB vs The NBA Breakdown.

Today yours truly was a guest on the online radio show The NBA Breakdown, alongside my favourite hoopshead with three first names Peter Robert Casey. For the uninitiated, The NBA Breakdown is a weekly radio show on Blog Talk Radio hosted by Audley Stephenson and Dave Mendonca.

Kicking off in September of this year, it hasn't taken long for Audley and Dave to develop chemistry like Stockton and Malone and a playful and insightful rapport akin to Marv Albert and Mike Fratello. The vision for the show is a fun, high energy call-in basketball talk show which focuses on fantasy players, historical NBA moments and news from around the league through lively discussion. Today's episode didn't disappoint as it was effervescent, lively and a meeting of like minded basketball minds engaging on current issues and topics surrounding the league. There's no need for me to get into it, when you can just stream it online, but I will just let you know that a certain someone was victorious in the trivia challenge against Mendonca and Casey, *displays championship belt*.

The show has had a good panel of guests with former NBA players John Starks and Tracy Murray, SLAM Magazine Editor-In-Chief Ben Osborne, handle magazine Editor Brad Graham and former NBA guard and current Mayor of Sacramento Kevin Johnson among others on the show. Definitely check it out, not only as I was on the show, but despite their jokester nature, they're highly knowledgeable in their basketball and have quite plainly and simply developed a great show that fulfills their mantra "It's hoops talk, the way it should be"
