With the dust seemingly settled on the Jimmy Butler trade, the boys delve into the differences in team dynamic so far, as well as analysis as to why the Celtics have stumbled out of the gates, and how all this impacts the pecking order out East.
This week the boys brought their scalpels because there's been some news to dissect. Not only has Jimmy Butler been traded to the 76ers in a blockbuster, but Kevin Durant and Draymond Green got involved in some all too rare, Warriors infighting. Also, the Kings are actually ok-ish??
After running through the happenings of our Sydney Kings vs Illawarra Hawks experience, the BDC boys discuss whether Doncic is rubbing his teammates the wrong way, Derrick Rose's complete rejuvenation, and our Mt. Inari Bet of the Week!
What's next for Cleveland now that Ty Lue is gone? How spacing has become the Bucks best friend, The Clippers are greater than the sum of their parts, what's wrong with Philly playing Markelle Fultz in the starting lineup, and the debut of our new segment, 'Mt. Inari Bet of the Week'.
After what can only be described as an eternity, the NBA is BACK and Backdoor Cut could not be more excited. On this week's show, Jake, Josh & Batey discuss all the off-season predictions they may have gotten wrong, what's surprised them early on, and of course Rajon Rondo's straight left.
This is it baby, the one we've all been waiting for. Like Baseball to our American friends, punting has always been one of Australia's favourite pastimes. The NBA can be a fickle beast in this regard, but fret no longer because Backdoor Cut has you covered with our predictions and LOCKS for win total over/unders this season.
Back to business as usual this week! The boys examine whether the firing of former Suns GM Ryan McDonough was necessary, The Jimmy Butler shit show in Minnesota, and which teams we will and won't be watching on our League Passes this year.
After a few weeks away and with Batey still to come, Josh has returned from his overseas adventure to help Jake work out the final of BDC's positional battles - Centres! Tune in as the boys work out who exactly is the cream of the crop.
The 4th in our series of positional battles for league supremacy. Jake & Josh were particularly excited for this one as they asked themselves, what even is a Power Forward in today's game? A fascinating look into how the position has evolved over time and who exactly is pushing this change.
The 3rd in our series of league wide positional rankings, and arguably the most talent laden. Small forwards aren't what they used to be, with tighter handles, superior vision and enviable shooting range, the typical 3 is more skilled than we've ever seen before. The question is though, who is currently the best?
There's no arguing that Point Guard is one of the deepest positions in the NBA. With nearly every team possessing their own talented floor general, it begs the question - who holds supremacy over the rest of the league?
This week while Jake is off gallivanting around Hawaii, Josh & Batey run through both the Capela and Kevin Love deals, as well as pick apart the activity of some teams over the off season, asking whether they've shored up their weaknesses from last year.
Part 1 of our complete wrap of the NBA Summer League. Team by team the boys run through strategies for the regular season, player scouting reports, and under the radar choices to keep your eyes out for as we move into training camp. Today, we start in the East!
With free agency beginning to settle down somewhat, the Backdoor Cutters take a look at all the deals from the past week and weigh in on the teams & players who've killed it, as well as who's copped the shit end of the stick.
Free agency is officially underway! LeBron wasted no time in finding a new team either, signing for the Los Angeles Lakers before we could even say, "passmethesauceformyfourandtwenty". This week we have a look into all the deals so far.
In the wake of the 2018 NBA Draft, Jake, Josh & Batey talk their pick and trade grades (Spoiler: Dallas did a good), as well as what's happening in the rumour mill with Kawhi, LeBron and Dwight Howard...?
After dying an agonizing, painful death at the end of the 2017/18 NBA season, the Backdoor Cut boys are REBORN for the 2018/19 draft! Will the Suns take Ayton? Will the Grizzlies trade their pick? Will Batey stop hunting Elk? All will be revealed.
