whereas isiah would tolerate the laziness and slack attitude of players like james, marbury, randolph and curry, it sounds like (particularly of that group) that they've been forced to either start busting their asses or fall back into oblivion. it's actually a little scary to think of how dangerous the knicks could be a few years down the road when they've shed all those huge, worthless contracts and are left with a club full of talent and/or hard workers. especially being the team with the deepest pockets in the league.

in retrospect, teams like ourselves, the sixers and others should maybe be grateful for how long the bumbling isiah thomas regime went on.
Yeah I couldn't agree more.

It scares the bejesus out of me that Donnie and Mike have the potential to un-do all the good (or bad, depending which way you look at it) work that Isiah, Steve, and Jimmy-D did.

Luckily, I think we're still a step or two ahead of them in our re-building and if all goes according to plan, we'll stay ahead of them for a while yet.

Episode #38 has been recorded and released. In this episode - the last before the season tips off - I was joined by guest co-host Dave Ang (of Run N Gun fame) to discuss the latest in the worlds of the Nets and Knicks.

P.S. - keep in mind that this episode was recorded before it became known that JB would be healthy enough to play against the Wizards, and before the Knicks waived Patrick Ewing Jnr.

Episode #39 has been recorded and released. In this episode, I was again joined by guest co-host Dave Ang (of 'Run N Gun Podcast' fame) to discuss the first few games of the season for the Nets and the Knicks, the ongoing Starbury saga, the contract situations of a few Nets youngsters, and the Nets' luxury tax position.

Episode #40 has been recorded and released. In this episode, I was joined by Dave Ang (of "Run 'N' Gun Suns") once again to help break down the second week of the season for both the Nets and the Knicks. In doing so, we recapped the games played, some extraordinary individual performances, and a trade rumor involving the Nets and Warriors.

Note: This episode was recorded before the Nets' games against the Pistons and Pacers.

i just rediscovered another nets sportscast that i had in bookmarks. episodes are available in MP3, itunes format and other, although it looks like the guy (michael senno) is still on summer break:
http://www.njnetscast.com/

one thing that's interesting is to listen to the huge difference in styles between michael's and rusty's show. michael goes for that 'bigger than life american sports show' style with the energy, hyperbole and seat-of-the-pants feel, but to me it quickly gets annoying... partly because i'm not a fan of that style, partly because michael lacks training (and it shows).

IMO the very first thing you have to have if you're doing vocal work is to develop a smooth, disciplined delivery. you also want to make sure, from the engineering standpoint, that pitch isn't flying too high or too low, that the speaker is not too close to the mic, etc. rusty's show hits the ground running because IMO because it has those areas pretty-much mastered.

tonight i saw mythbusters tackle the question "do you run faster when you drop onto the floor with your feet pumping?", so i just had to work in that term. :]

Thanks once again for the kind words, G.

I've listened to NJNetscast for pretty much the entirety of its existence to date, and while it's obvious the knowledge base on the Nets that Michael possesses, he does try that little bit too hard and you're right - the professional touch isn't quite there. He seems to be a victim of the trap that so many sports podcasters fall into - one that makes them think they have to be the next Tony Kornheiser or Mike Wilbon. That was definitely something I was wary of - especially being in a situation where the show had two hosts at any one time.

Episode #41 of The Crossover will be recorded at some point in the next 24 hours and will be released shortly after that.

Episode #41 has now been recorded and released. In this episode, I was joined again by Dave Ang to help break down the week that was. As well as recapping game results, we got into some lively discussion about the Yahoo! fantasy 'ball Stat-tracker and NBA.comís Broadband League Pass.

rusty, re: last show's early discussion,
you might think about measuring the bandwidth usage of various activities, for example the bandwidth cost of watching a leaguepass game. i use a small program called "BM extreme" to measure how much throughput is consumed for stuff like watching TV shows on hulu or running P2P software, etc. that way i can budget myself, knowing what my monthly cap is.

btw, you could always switch your cable to satellite, right? that way you could get leaguepass over the TV instead of having to do it over the net. okay, that would probably cost a bit more though... maybe a lot more.

EDIT: looking forward to you rubbing the nets-hawks victories in the NY guy's face next show. :D

Thanks for the suggestion man. I think I just need to use by brain a bit more next time around and not be so liberal with the amount of games I watch. When I got LP at the start of the season, I watched as many games as I could - not just Nets games. I think that was my downfall.

If I could get Satellite League Pass TV, I would, but sadly it's not available in Australia.

As for the wins against the Hawks, well I definitely wasn't as quick as Dave was to write us off before we played them! I thought we had a chance.

NOTE: Anybody that has an iTunes Music Store account (free to get one); could you review the show for me? It'd be much appreciated.

Episode #43 has been recorded and released. This week, Pmac and I recapped the games that the Nets and Knicks have played since episode #42 and cover some soap opera-worthy story-lines from around the NBA. Whether they’re between King James and Sir Charles or Coach Pringles and Princess Starbury, the battle lines have been drawn!
