Dishin’ Dimes Episode 3: NBA Spelling Bee

Hosted by Ryan Murphy and Matt McEwan, Dishin’ Dimes is a weekly half-hour podcast for hardcore hoops heads that examines the biggest stories and trends from the Association. We pride ourselves on being quirkier than Jeremy Lin’s hairstyles, more informed than LeBron James’ inner circle, and more opinionated than Charles Barkley after a bottle of bourbon.

Do you call Giannis Antetokounmpo the “Greek Freak” and Kristaps Porzingis “that kid from Latvia” because you don’t know how to pronounce their names? If so, you could learn a lot from our latest episode of Dishin’ Dimes. Matt and I rounded up some of SportsBettingDime’s top writers for our first annual NBA Spelling Bee, and the results were predictably hilarious.

We also discussed the latest headlines from around the league, delivered our weekly locks, and played several rounds of Would You Rather? (Would you rather spend the night in prison or watch all 82 of the Knicks’ regular season games? Would you rather write “Giannis Antetokounmpo” 1,000 times by hand, or take a full-court charge from LeBron James?)

You can play along at home as you listen to our latest – and greatest – episode in the link below.
