Good convo

On this episode of the NCP, owner and operator of the basketball analysis site Ball Don’t Stop, Ekam Nagra, visits from Vancouver. Beyond his loyalty to the Grizzlies, Ekam is passionate about the game and the purity of hoop. To start things off we get into the role of the media in sports, and take Gil on the other side of microphone, to examine those who cover the game.

If you’re a follower of Ball Don’t Stop, you know about Ekam’s reverence for Kobe Bryant. For a guy that was a fan first, then an opponent, Gil speaks to the detail of what he witnessed going up close and personal against the Mamba. And of course there are stories. We also get into the technical brilliance of players, including Agent Zero, and their influence on the game as it evolves.

Bill Simmons sounds like such a jackass in regards to this athletes-feelings shtick he's been railing on the past two weeks.

No he doesn't, y'all just don't like the Sports Guy. Even Steve Nash is co-signing what he's saying.

On this episode, we wake up with a FIBA hangover. Team USA came up way short, be we should not be surprised. For Gil, the squad will need to have superstars show up for a shot at gold in 2020. However, he gives us a heads up, the well is not as deep as we might think. Also, we examine the true value of international play.

After that, we swerve into the NFL for a minute to examine the Antonio Brown circus. On this one for Gil, there’s the way AB handled his route to New England. As he sees it, whatever course for a player to get to where they want to be, they should follow through on it. As for the off the field accusations, Gil explains how AB will focus and play through it.

Whole lot of Grant Williams talk. :lol:

HBO and The Ringer's Bill Simmons is joined by SI and DAZN's Chris Mannix to discuss the start of the NBA season, including the Warriors' drop-off, Trae Young, Luka Doncic, Pascal Siakam, searching for depth in the Eastern Conference, Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn, and more (2:15) before discussing the upcoming Canelo-Kovalev match for the WBO light heavyweight championship (52:15).
