Mickstape is the preeminent Basketball Podcast ever of all time. Trill Withers and Coley Mick bring you the most correct takes about all things basketball and culture, from the parquet to the playground and beyond. If you're looking for advanced stats, facts, or things of that nature, you've come to the wrong place entirely. This is the Rasheed Wallace of podcasts. The Allen Iverson of podcasts. The JR Smith of podcasts. Go ahead and smash that subscribe button or be mocked ruthlessly by your friends and family for years to come.
What were you doing on New Years Eve, 2009? We don't remember either, seeing as that was three lifetimes ago. We go over the best songs, movies, shows, and tweets of 2019 because no one else can apparently do this correctly. You're welcome.
Since Mush is now a permanent member of the Tape, I figured it would be best to look back at how it all got started with his very first appearance. That's all that happened. Nothing else. Nope. I didn't "royally fuck up the recording" or "completely screw the pooch" like some pundits have speculated. Never that.
Myles Garrett bonked Mason Rudolph over the head with his own helmet, Scoob. It was outrageous and luckily we were recording when it all went down live. But before all that madness went down... MELO IS BACK!!!
Drake got the shit booed out of him. Somehow we didn't touch on that til late in the second hour. Before that? We talked about a lot. A whole lot. Mostly about Andrew Wiggins becoming the best player in the League and the Heat trying to get Dion Waiters the fuck outta here.
I mean what a title for this podcast. If you don't click on that you're a bad person who hates fun. Also we fixed the NFL once and for all in a wild turn of events no one could have possibly seen coming. You're welcome.
Former ref and most notorious NBA figure of our lifetime Tim Donaghy joins the program to talk about the Malice At The Palace. Honestly, we talk about the Malice At The Palace. Bet you didn't know he was involved in that, too, did you. Because boy oh boy did I not know that. But before we get into that, TOWNS AND EMBIID FOUGHT, STEPH CURRY BROKE HIS HAND, WE'RE A WEEK INTO THE SEASON WTF IS HAPPENING.
Former rival turned good pal Matt Barnes returns to the program to talk about the debut of his new podcast with Stephen Jackson, the NBA figuring out what to do with China, Antonio Brown, the Clippers vs. the Lakers and the late, great Nipsey Hussle. Then, we talk about LeBron's terrible, no good quotes about China before getting to what really matters in this world: the BALLERS season finale.
Dave Chappelle, BALLERS, people being bad at Twitter, running backs, NBA preseason, a whole gang of other topics. It's 2 AM how on Earth do you expect me to remember what we discussed for three hours an hour ago?
Bulls "big" man Wendell Carter Jr. joins us ahead of his sophomore campaign to talk Atlanta vs. Chicago music, his tremendous chain, college players getting the bag, and the largest animal he could fight. Then, Whiskers and Mick talk about fighting cereal mascots and Grimace's dark, seedy past. Yeah, it's one of those episodes.
We went over ESPN's top 100 list. Surprisingly we disagreed.
Also, Wendell Carter Jr. was supposed to be on this episode. The wrong files was sent. We talked about him being on this episode. He will be on Tuesday's episode. I know no one is reading this and I'm wasting my time explaining but...
The legend Brandon Fucking Walker joins the program to preview the highly anticipated Kentucky-Mississippi State game this Saturday. And by "highly anticipated" I mean you have to be high to anticipate such a piece of shit sporting event. After that... I mean this thing went off the rails QUICK fast.
NYT Best Selling Author and LAST CHANCE U star Coach Jason Brown joins us to talk some good ol' fashion pigskin and life in general. Then, Senior NFL Analyst and SURF AND TURF co-host Steven Cheah previews the NFL's 100th season.
