Looks like Dylan and Brendan Quinn from The Athletic have teamed up for a new basketball podcast.

They also have a campaign going for 500 new subscribers by the end of the month. I didn't see that posted here and I figure many of you would be interested.

Ouch. The saga continues.

 

John Beilein said he did not end up having a convo with Chris Webber while he was here. Their paths did not cross.

Beilein said he’s still hopeful all former players feel welcome here.

Slightly off-topic but it seems like we have a lot of Prince fans around here, and on top of that there's the whole Stauskus-Game-Blouses meme. Being from Minnesota I'm a big Prince fan and also a sports aesthetics junkie so this hits the sweet spot. 

The ESPN article provides a good look at the unis themselves. 

OT: Caris with a good statline as Brooklyn edges Pistons in OT comeback win

Caris has a solid, though upstaged night as Brooklyn edged the Pistons tonight in a close OT win. Spencer Dinwiddie (ex-Piston) stole the show with a great second half effort but Caris was solid all night and put up a very well rounded effort.

He looked good handling the ball and really distributed well. His D was also on point. 

Good to see him doing well even if it means a Pistons loss.
