This Week's Show
Patrick and Brian are back to discuss the recent position adjustment on boxscoregeeks.com, why was the change made and why do we even need position adjustments to evaluate player production in the first place?

This Week's Poll
Poker or Egaming?
Our poll last week was about if ESPN and eGaming were a match. Patrick seems to think, at least compared to poker, that DOTA 2 is more of a "sport."
Patrick recently fixed a bug on the position adjustment for the numbers on the site.
The simple reality is that there are distinctly different positions and responsibilities in the NBA. We've talked about this a lot over the years. And, we'll apparently keep talking about it for a while. Patrick has a good breakdown, though, tune in!
The Wall of Boredom
It's the part of the show where we talk the NBA offseason using ESPN's transaction page.
Some day a team in the NBA is going to try taking over fifty threes a game. And I want to see what happens.
The Mavs signed JaVale McGee, which Patrick doesn't see as a bad thing. Although it does lead to a good question about the importance of goaltending on defense.
Scott Walker and Arenas
Patrick shouts out Flip Saunders, who revealed he had Hodgkin's lymphoma last week. For as much trash as we talk, it's only basketball. Cancer sucks, and we hope Flip a successful fight and full recovery.
Brian shouts of Clinton Loomis, captain of team Fear. As an Egamer, he's having an issue with injuries and hoping to get surgery. Basically, he gets our respect as a top tier athlete.
I've got a doctor's apt tomorrow that may determine if I'm eligible for surgery or not for my arm. I hope I am...— Clinton Loomis (@FearDotA) August 14, 2015
