Rey-Rey Is Fundamental #79: Other Things (ft. Shea Serrano)

#BlameReyRey

We are on Episode #79 of this podcast. The third in five days!

The podcast is usually about NBA talk. We also dabble on other things such as other sports, video games, pop culture, social issues, dating, life in general because Rey-Rey likes to keep it fundamental. But for this ep, we are still sticking to the NBA.

Shea Serrano (@SheaSerrano) of The Ringer, and also the author of the New York Times best-selling book, Basketball… And Other Things, stops by to talk a bit about his book and a little about the NBA Playoffs. Does he have a desire to write the sequel to this? Does he think the NBA will surpass NFL soon? And what does he think about the entire Kawhi Leonard saga?

Thank you for listening, guysh!

Rey-Rey Is Fundamental #78: Explanations (ft. Oliver Maroney)

#BlameReyRey

Hey, look! It’s the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental podcast for the second time in three days.

The podcast is usually about NBA talk. We also dabble on other things such as other sports, video games, pop culture, social issues, dating, life in general because Rey-Rey likes to keep it fundamental. But for this ep, we shall stick to mostly NBA.

Oliver Maroney (@OMaroneyNBA) of Dime and host of the Big 3 Show stopped by to talk a whole mess of basketball. We quickly went over the weekend of NBA playoff games, his involvement with the Big 3, and went over the NBA season awards (I wish they would give them out now and I wish people wouldn’t get so mad over Ben Simmons vs Donovan Mitchell.

Before the talk with Oliver, I also explained why I took such a long break from podcasting. If you ever heard or read any of my work, it is very important to me you listened to this part. Thank you so much for your support.

And thank you for listening, guysh!

Rey-Rey Is Fundamental #77: Reboot (ft. Snottie Drippen and Ti Windisch)

#BlameReyRey

Well, guess what’s back?

The Rey-Rey Is Fundamental podcast is back. It was away for more than a year. And yours truly will explain that in a future episode.

The podcast is usually about NBA talk. We will stick to that format in this episode but we usually dabble on other things such as other sports, video games, pop culture, social issues, dating, life in general because Rey-Rey likes to keep it fundamental.

The excellent James Holas (@SnottieDrippen) of BBallBreakdown.Com joins me in this return podcast as we talk about the 2018 NBA Playoffs. He also brought a friend with him.

#BlameReyRey

This is Ti Windisch @TiWindisch). He hosts his own NBA podcast called Timeout With Ti and has done work for Bucks site, Behind The Buck Pass from the Fansided Network.

We go through each playoff series. Do we still believe in a Warriors/Cavs finals? James and Ti are Celtics and Bucks fans, respectively; what do THEY think of that series? Can we give the Raptors the benefit of the doubt here? What about the Rockets?

A straightforward NBA podcast for my return episode. Thanks for listening, guysh!

Also, we just want to let you know that current Jazz center Ekpe Udoh reminds us of Shawn Stockman from Boyz II Men.

#BlameReyRey

SPECIAL GUEST
Whitney Medworth (@its_whitney) of SB Nation

This is the 76th episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast.

Y’all already know what this podcast is about. A lot of NBA basketball but, really, it’s about whatever interests me. We do stick to ball in this episode.

The awesome Whitney Medworth joins me and Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi) as we talk hoops. After lamenting about the podcast we lost two weeks ago, we talked a myriad of things such as Whitney not ORIGINALLY being a Pacers fan, Adam’s former loyalty to a certain team, the tired resting players topic, and the evolution of Basketball Twitter.

Thanks for listening! And thanks to Whitney for talking to us.

SPECIAL GUEST
Russ Bengtson (@russbengtson) of Complex Magazine and former editor of SLAM

Welcome to the 75th episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

Y’all already know what this podcast is about. A lot of NBA basketball but, really, it’s about whatever I want. I’m not going to pigeonhole myself with just ball talk.

Russ Bengtson is back as we talked NBA trade deadline! Plus we talk about the beef we have with the administration, the beef between NBA players, a proposed “beef” podcast that should probably happen out there, and who else is going to make beef out of the Chicago Bulls. Now I just want beef. I’m hungry.

Thank you for the listen! And thanks to Russ for stopping by.

This is the 74th episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

Y’all already know what this podcast is about. A lot of NBA basketball but, really, it’s about whatever I want. I’m not going to pigeonhole myself with just ball talk.

I brought back another old friend (and fellow nerd). Jeff Garcia is everything you want for a San Antonio Spurs reporter. He’s been on the beat for a long time and he was actually one of the two who got me into podcasting! So thanks, Jeff. We relived old times like the Blogs With Ball convention and staying at the Hooters Hotel for Las Vegas Summer League. Oh, yeah. Of course, we talked San Antonio Spurs. They’re always on or near the top and it’s amazing how they’ve maintained their spot for so long.

Thanks for the listen, guysh!

Welcome to the 73rd episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

Y’all already know what this podcast is about. A lot of NBA basketball but, really, it’s about whatever I want. I’m not going to pigeonhole myself with just ball talk.

It’s been a while but I talk to my old friend, John Karalis! We talked about how the Celtics have done an unbelievable job getting back to contention so quickly. It pained me a little to say it but we gushed over Isaiah Thomas for what seemed like forever. After that, we talked about our longtime friendship as we reminisced about our stories with Dan Majerle and Mark Cuban.

Thanks so much for the listen, guysh!

Rey-Rey Is Fundamental #72: Blessed Trinity (ft. Rosalyn Ross)

#BlameReyRey

SPECIAL GUEST
Rosalyn Ross (@R_Trinity); writer for The Sports Fan Journal, actress, model

VISITOR
E.J. Christian (@EJChristian7)

Yo, yo, yo. This is the 72nd episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

Y’all already know what this podcast is about. A lot of NBA basketball but, really, it’s about whatever I want. I’m not going to pigeonhole myself with just ball talk.

This is my first extended chat with actress/writer/model Rosalyn Ross. I had talked to her on Twitter for years but we never really had a conversation like this. We talked everything from her career to the Memphis Grizzlies to the Super Bowl to culture shock to the issues of this country. It’s a very sobering talk for me personally and I’m glad we had this conversation. And, yes, I mentioned she’s an actress so you can check her IMDB page.

Before I had the chat with Ros, E.J. Christian stops by to talk a little old-school. The topic was MTV’s iconic show, Total Request Live. I just loved people yelling after they requested their favorite pop song.

Thanks so much for the listen. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.

SPECIAL GUEST

VISITOR
Joanne Ross (@JoannePistonFan)

Yo, yo! We are at the 71st episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

Y’all already know what this podcast is about. A lot of NBA basketball but, really, it’s about whatever I want. I’m not going to pigeonhole myself with just ball talk.

Old friend Loren Chen comes on the podcast to talk about Super Mario World, one of the greatest video games of all-time. We talked about the depth of the game, our favorite secrets, and the most challenging stages. Also, we deviated a bit as we talked about other Mario games, the rival Sonic games, and awful Sega Genesis tricks to get secret codes in certain games.

Afterwards, I talked to gal pal Joanne about getting caught looking. When we see someone attractive, sometimes, we look and gaze at the beautiful person. We all look. It’s another thing, though, if you get caught (not by the attractive person). I talk about my experiences there.

Thanks for listening, guysh!

CO-HOST
Peter Kim (@YungBolo)

What is up, party people? This is the 70th episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

Y’all already know what this podcast is about. A lot of NBA basketball but, really, it’s about whatever I want. I’m not going to pigeonhole myself with just ball talk.

We did stick to basketball for this episode. First, I reunite with one of my old friends and old podcast co-host, Peter Kim (you may remember him from the old Chronicles of Crotty podcast). Then we welcome Mick Minas, author of probably the most comprehensive history of the Los Angeles Clippers, The Curse. We talked about the process Mick went through into writing the book, went over a few of his stories, and just had a fantastic chat about what is probably the most cursed franchise in sports history.

You can get the book at ClipperCurse.Com or Amazon.

Thanks for listening, guysh!
