Rey-Rey Is Fundamental #66: Ball Is Life (ft. Matt Moore)

#BlameReyRey

SPECIAL GUEST
Matt Moore (@HPbasketball), NBA writer from CBS Sports.

(The pic above really isn’t him; it’s his son. ISN’T HE ADORABLE?!)

CO-HOST
Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi)

VISITOR
E.J. Christian (@EJChristian7)

It is a new year. Welcome to 2017. And welcome to the 66th 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.

Nevertheless, Matt Moore stops by to talk basketball. How has he liked the NBA season thus far? What of Boogie Cousins? What of the Hawks? And as for the Warriors, is Stephen Curry necessary? And for a bonus round, Matt gives us a story after I asked him how his year went (let me warn you that it’s a bit horrifying). You get an hour of Matt Moore. Let him educate you about the league.

Before that, though, E.J. stops by and goes a little old-school with me. Sort of. We talk about Fuller House, which is the sequel to the ol’ 90s family sitcom, Full House.

Thanks, guysh!

Rey-Rey Is Fundamental #65: Earnestly Fundamental (ft. E.J. Christian)

This is the 65th episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

I am Rey-Rey. You guys know me as an NBA online writer for The No-Look Pass. This pod will probably be mostly known for NBA talk but I also talk about whatever I want whether it’s anime, video games, other sports, social issues, life in general, etc. After all, this podcast is fundamental.

We are doing a home-and-home podcast. E.J. Christian (@EJChristian7), who usually does the old-school segments with me, interviews ME, per se. We do a tribute to legendary NBA sideline reporter, Craig Sager, and we talked a little basketball. Craig is a fixture in the NBA scene and we always admired him for his professionalism and, of course, his wardrobe. He had been battling leukemia in the last two years. And we talked about him previously as we had his daughter, Kacy, on the show last summer.

Also, if you can take some time to check out Go Iowa Awesome as they partner once again with Iowa Touchdowns for Kids. This is a fundraising campaign that encourages Hawkeye fans to pledge whatever amount of money you want per touchdown scored by the University of Iowa during the regular season. So it would be great if you can donate. Thank you!

#BlameReyRey

So how’s it going? This is the 64th episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

I am Rey-Rey, an NBA online writer (The No-Look Pass!). This pod will probably be mostly known for NBA talk but I also talk about whatever I want whether it’s anime, video games, other sports, social issues, life in general, etc. After all, this podcast is fundamental.

#BlameReyRey

Shareef Jackson (@ShareefJackson) is back! You know him as a gamer and he spreads the word on diversity in video gaming. He does various podcasts and YouTube shows where he’s all about making Science looking good and Gaming looking good. Check out all his work at ShareefJackson.Com.

This is so predictable if you know this pod. Episode #64 means we get to talk about the Nintendo 64!

#BlameReyRey

Shareef, Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi), and I talk about what it was like when the N64 first came out. We talked about the weird controller and also its legendary software. So many quality games came out for the system despite its overall library being much smaller than the competition.

#BlameReyRey

Before that, it was Girl Talk With The Gal Pal Squad. Joanne (@JoannePistonFan) and I talked about one of our favorite shows, Girl Meets World. It’s a surprisingly excellent sequel to the 90s sitcom, Boy Meets World. We strongly recommend you to watch it if you liked that TGIF show.

Also, if you can take some time to check out Go Iowa Awesome as they partner once again with Iowa Touchdowns for Kids. This is a fundraising campaign that encourages Hawkeye fans to pledge whatever amount of money you want per touchdown scored by the University of Iowa during the regular season.

Are you all doing okay?

It’s the 63rd episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

We all know I’m an NBA online writer (The No-Look Pass!). But I talk about whatever I want whether it’s anime, video games, other sports, social issues, life in general, etc. because this podcast is fundamental.

Zach Harper (@talkhoops) of A Wolf Among Wolves stops by for an all-important talk about the election (which I had a bit of a monologue about before the interview). We also talked the NBA, of course, and talked about the outlook of a few teams. I also threw in the topic of the old Nintendo Classic and I asked Harper if he would ever run for President.

#BlameReyRey

What is up, ladies, gentlemen, and animals? We are at the 62nd episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

This pod is usually all about the NBA talk because I’m an NBA online writer (The No-Look Pass!). But this show is really about whatever the heck we want whether it’s other sports, video games, anime, pop culture, social issues, life in general because this podcast is… fundamental.

James Holas AKA Snottie Drippen (@SnottieDrippen) of BBallBreakdown.com (among other NBA sites) stops by for a little NBA talk with me and Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi). First off, Adam talks about the Chicago Cubs WINNING THE WORLD SERIES. Then we talked about the important NBA topics like the Durant/Westbrook drama, Kawhi Leonard, Cleveland Cavaliers, and assigning WWE superstar characters/gimmicks to NBA players.

Before that NBA talk, though, E.J. Christian (@EJChristian7) of the Earnestly Speaking Podcast and Hot Hot Hoops stops by for the return of the old-school segment! We talked about the ways we used to listen and acquire music back in the day. You kids have it so easy, we swear.

Yo, yo, yo. We’re back after a brief hiatus. This is the 61st episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

This pod usually has lots of NBA talk because I’m an NBA online writer (The No-Look Pass!). But we get into whatever we like whether it’s other sports, video games, anime, pop culture, social issues, life in general because this podcast is… fundamental.

Oliver Maroney (@OMaroneyNBA) of Basketball Insiders stops by to talk to me and Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi) about the opening of the NBA regular season. By the time this recorded, the season was four days old. Those statlines to begin the season were MONSTROUS.

Also, Adam’s Chicago Cubs made the World Series so we made some conversation about that.

Chris Barnewall (@ChrisBarnewall) of Hardwood Paroxysm, Friendly Bounce, and At The Hive stops by to talk to me and Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi) about GUILTY PLEASURES in video games. What bad games do we like to play? What mundane tasks do we like to do in our games? It’s perfect because we did this pod on #NationalVideoGamesDay.

Here are a few examples.

Yo! This is the 59th episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

This pod usually has lots of NBA talk because I’m an NBA online writer (The No-Look Pass!). But really, we get into whatever we like whether it’s other sports, video games, anime, pop culture, social issues, life in general because this podcast is… fundamental.

Robert Littal (@BSO), the creator of Black Sports Online returns to the show. We talked about the Colin Kaepernick… controversy, if you will. Also, since we’re both wrestling fans, we talked about where the WWE was going, especially after the Kevin Owens WWE Universal title win.

After that, Adam Reisinger (@AdamReisinger) and I talked about (I guess, you can call it a guilty pleasure) the show, Pretty Little Liars. We talked about how a show which is pretty much DISGUISED as a teen drama, got us watching for so long. We recorded this segment a few months before and the show will end next spring. But, hey, the show kept us entranced for years.

Rey-Rey Is Fundamental #57: Stronger (ft. Kacy Sager)

#BlameReyRey

It’s been a while, guysh!

This is the 57th episode of the Rey-Rey Is Fundamental (@ReyReyIsFun) podcast, part of the Happy Hour Network.

In this podcast, there is lots of NBA talk because I’m an NBA online writer. But I also throw in whatever I like. We could also talk about video games, other sports, anime, or just life in general. What I’m really saying is that this podcast… is fundamental.

Kacy Sager (@THESagerBomb) writes for BBallBreakdown.Com. She is also part of the stat team for Turner Sports. And, yes, she is the daughter of super sideline reporter Craig Sager from NBA on TNT.

We talk about Kacy’s dad, who has been battling leukemia for the most part of the last two years. We exchange stories about him for the first 20 minutes.

Then we talked a little basketball as Kacy defends the Hawks signing Dwight Howard. We also talked about which NBA players we want to hang out with , Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi) passionately defends Gabby Douglas, and Adam also tells a very special story to Kacy. Actually, I told a story, too!

Thanks for the listen, guysh! #SagerStrong
