Show Notes

DeMarcus Cousins' below average season numbers. These include his recent hot streak.

Old post about DeMarcus Cousins' flaws. Worth noting I include a massive defensive bump for him.

Steph Curry and Ray Allen are only two players in NBA history to take over 600 three-pointers in a season at over 40%

Warriors and Spurs are both currently all-time great teams.

Mike wiLQ's excellent post average NBA career length.

We talk the "Brocato Prime", which is the best six seasons in a player's career. It's a number we like using for comparing great player.

Make sure you listen to last week's show with Storm head coach Jenny Boucek, it was incredible.

He now coaches the Cavs...

The TrueHoop podcast on David Blatt's firing.

My post on why it's fine to be mad about All-Star snubs.

Thanks to the BoxscoreGeeks' comment section who got into a thread about Sid Moncrief recently!

I shout out comedian Hari Kondabolu (@harikondabolu). I also talk the super fanboy tweet I made about him recently.
