TGR, Ep. 16: Adventures in international basketball

Podcast Update: We want to once again apologize to all those who’ve been having trouble downloading our podcast through iTunes on the iPhone. We’ve been in contact with both iTunes and Podbean in an attempt to correct the issue and really haven’t gotten anywhere. To correct the problem we’ve started a new iTunes station that shouldn’t have any trouble. So iPhone users, you should no longer have problems downloading our show. Thanks for your patience and onto the episode.

This week at TGR we talk to SLAM writer and Euroleague Adventures founder Nick Gibson who discusses: Groups A-D of the world championships, the potential impact Tibor Pleiss will have on the Thunder, looking back at picking Harden over Rubio, and so much more. All of that discussion is great, but the biggest part of this episode is our “World Championship Fantasy Basketball Draft” where we selected two teams that will go head to head in the 5 major statistical categories (points, assists, blocks, steals, rebounds). It’s TGR vs. Euroleague Adventures!

We’re still trying to come up with what the wager should be. If you have any ideas let us know and leave a comment. Also subscribe to our new iTunes account as it should work for all media players (iPhone included) and will likely be our main account going into the future.
