We're back. After a 1 & 1/2 year subatical, Pat & Awall are back at it - talking NBA Hoops.
And it's funny... quite a bit has happened in the last year and a half.
Little things like:
Lebron James leaving Miami for home (perhaps you heard)
Lebron James gettnig a new big 3
Lebron's side-kicks going down to injury in the playoffs, but Lebron still dragging them to the finals
The Splash Brothers led by Steve Kerr and the Warriors have one of the best seasons ever and win the championship
But that's all in the past.
On this episode we discuss:
the demise of Kobe Bryant
The rise of Love, Drummond, and Whiteside.
The Warriors insane winning streak

Kobe Bryant to retire after this season
There once was a Laker Gurl who lived in a tree high over the place they played, just so she could see. And just because the height was high, a top the building up, She could never see the game cause she was just a pup. She followed them to school one day, and it was really hotter, she thought she had the Lakers, but it was the Globe Trotters. She called out loud HEY KOBE, cause she thought he was a dream, and someone screamed back her "Child you got the wrong team!)

Once upon a time, Jason Kidd's son, T.J., dressed up as Brian Scalabrine for Halloween. This was back when T.J. was smallish, the Jason-Joumana marriage was rock solid, and the Nets played in the dreary confines of the Meadowlands, where T.J. had his own locker.
I only got to make a brief reference to that small piece of Scalabrine history this morning in an interview on Sirius-XM NBA radio, partly because Scalabrine was busy predicting that Kobe Bryant will shoot 37 percent this season for a Lakers team that will not make the playoffs.
As for whether this will be Kobe's last season, Scals and I had a little disagreement.
He believes Kobe will take a subjugated role on a 2016-17 Lakers team that could add a pair of max free agents.
I believe Kobe is too much of a diva to come off the bench as an 18-minute per night player ... but that does not mean I believe this season will be Kobe's final one. (That will be determined by the level he is playing at.)

As I reported last week from Las Vegas, there is a possibility that Kobe makes his swan song as a member of the U.S. Olympic team, ending his career atop the gold medal podium in Rio.
Speaking of the Olympics, that also came up for discussion in our interview. There are going to be four teams from the FIBA-Americas region, which will account for one-third of the field. Why won't the IOC expand from 12 teams with so many worthy candidates out there who could boost the caliber of the competition?
That answer, plus much more, in this podcast with Scalabrine & Jonathan Hood.
We headline today with a double dose of ROH discussion, as we do a ROH All-Star Extravaganza VII Review, discuss the return of NJPW stars to ROH TV and we also do a NJPW Destruction in Kobe Preview, which is the show happening on Sunday morning.
We start with Quick Hits (9:00-54:30) as per usual, where we get to happily talk about Lucha Underground returning for a Season 2 in 2016, but will it be with Alberto El Patron in toe? We also discuss if WWE finally does something with SmackDown when it comes to the USA Network, Eva Marie possibly being hit with a dose of reality, an update on Sting, possible Wrestlemania 32 opponents for Undertaker and more.
Then we let Paul have time to talk about WWE Night of Champions 2015 since he wasn’t on the Review Special on Sunday Night. Next, we get into our review of RAW (54:45-88:00) by storyline and discuss this week’s NXT (88:15-107:45) episode as well.
After that, Paul hits on ROH’s All-Star Extravaganza VII PPV (108:00-121:45) and we also touch on this week’s ROH TV (121:45-127:00) that featured the return of some NJPW stars to the program.
Speaking of NJPW, this is where we do the NJPW Destruction in Kobe Preview (127:00-142:25).
Finally, we finish things off with TNA Impact (142:30-158:00) post GFW Invasion and do our W2M Power Rankings (158:00-End) as well.
We will be back on Sunday Night with another W2M Special reviewing both NJPW Destruction in Okayama and Destruction in Kobe with a special guest.
Did you know there is a W2M Network Facebook Page? If you "like" the page, you will get any announcements about the podcast, anything the guys write, or other various things as well.
