Welcome to Basketball Court, a podcast where we litigate the great "what-ifs" in NBA history. Each week, we'll put a hypothetical question to our esteemed panelists, Miles Johnson and Sam Tydings. Over the course of each episode, our counselors will present their cases, offer objections, and try to convince Judge Peter Andrews (and our special guest judges) that their alternate NBA timeline is the best one.
Welcome to U.S. District Court — for the District of Basketball.
Episode 12: Andrew L. Bynum v. The Process, Inc.
In this session of Basketball Court, our counselors undo the Andrew Bynum - Dwight Howard - Andre Iguodala trade of summer 2012. The results include a spectacularly bad Magic pun, sadness for Joel Embiid, and more mediocrity for the Lakers.
Episode 11: Wardell Stephen Curry v. Minnesota Timberwolves Basketball Club LLC
After a definitely planned hiatus, Basketball Court is back in session, this time diverting Steph Curry from the Warriors to the Timberwolves in the 2009 Draft. Will Steph's shoe deal survive? How many titles will the Thunder win this time? And what does all this have to do with the Chicago Cubs? Peter, Miles, and Sam answer all these questions — and many others that you'd absolutely never think to ask.
Episode 10: Michael W. Krzyzewski v. The Los Angeles Lakers, Inc.
We may be a little late to March Madness, but in this episode Basketball Court tangles with the ramifications of Coach K taking the vacant Lakers job in 2004. Logically, the bulk of the episode is spent discussing Smush Parker's career, the 2000 Subway Series, and how law school grades are handed out.
Episode 9: Brooklyn Nets LLC v. Sacramento Basketball Holdings LLC
Following the cataclysmic Boogie trade of this weekend, Basketball Court convenes an emergency session to ask whether the Kings or Nets have a better five years ahead of them. After agreeing that both teams are very bad, Sam and Miles have a lively discussion that includes extensive discussion of John Salmons' travel habits and Rihanna's podcast preferences.
Episode 8: Patrick A. Ewing v. The Rim et al.
Basketball Court returns to the mid-90s in this episode, asking a question that has bothered Knicks fans for two decades: what if Patrick Ewing has made that finger roll? Special guest judge Yaron Weitzman joins for a rollicking discussion that encompasses Shaq's movie career, whether Ewing's sneakers are ugly, and (of course) KD resigning with the Thunder.
Episode 7: James E. Harden, Jr v. The Professional Basketball Club, LLC
Our first episode of 2017 revolves around Sam’s least favorite topic: the Harden trade. Special guest counsel Rob Mohen joins Sam and Miles to argue about a trade that changed Oklahoma City forever. Along the way, Sam discusses his Twitter fight with Curt Schilling, Miles coins a new phrase, and Rob posits a nightmare scenario where Stephen A. Smith replaces Sam on the podcast.
