The Dagger Report – Washington Wizards Podcast – Episode 1
Mike Prada of Bullets Forever and I decided to kick this season off with a Washington Wizards-related podcast … The Dagger Report.
Ideally this would have been posted first thing this morning (or even yesterday), ideally these podcasts will be more accessible in the future (such as on iTunes or in an embedded player instead of just a link below), and ideally you will see podcast episodes from Mike and I once a week featuring a variety of guests … as you can tell, we got a lot of ideas. It’s a work in progress, just like Flip Saunders’ coaching footprint on this team.
Below is a rundown of what we will talk about in this first episode (stolen from Prada’s post on Bullets Forever):
In our first episode, we talk with Rashad Mobley from Hoops Addict about the Wizards’ preseason. Who should start while Antawn Jamison is injured? Who should start at shooting guard? Have the Wizards experimented too much in the preseason at the expense of developing a set rotation? Rashad, Kyle and I discuss these issues and more.
We also talk with Mark Riggs, aka Rook6980, about Flip Saunders’ Hawk offensive system and his defensive philosophies. How are the Wizards picking this stuff up? Which players should fit well, and which players don’t?
Finally, with the Wizards set to play the Dallas Mavericks tonight at 8:30, we talk with Rob Mahoney from the Mavericks blog The Two Man Game. How will Shawn Marion fit in with the Mavericks this season? What’s the next shoe to drop for the Mavericks? Who do we think has the edge in tonight’s matchup? We discuss these questions and more, including a part where I question how we can consider Jason Kidd a defensive liability.
Enjoy. Comments welcome.
