YEP, we’re back. Not since the 3rd of June have we actually posted a podcast and you know what, it feels good to be back. So we kicked off the dust and got back to it.

I think it was always hard for him to realize that Nash and Stoudamire were what the team was really about. But he’ll either be the guy in Miami, or duck out and find a different team next year.
