2022 Holiday Special: Heat vs. Mavericks (December 25, 2011)

2h 4m | Dec 22, 2022

Another year in the books, and yet again, our annual Christmas/holiday tradition! Jason and Rich welcome Dr. Curtis Harris ( to the show for a live watch of Miami Heat vs. Dallas Mavericks from Christmas Day 2011.

(Unfortunately, Reinis Lācis couldn't join us this year but we're working on a replacement watch along with him very soon!)

This year, we watched a very important game in NBA history as the Dallas Mavericks received their rings on opening night which was also Christmas Day? Wait what? Yes, due to the NBA lockout, the 2011-12 season was condensed to just 66 games which meant the season began on Christmas Day.

In this episode, we discuss the reasons for the lockout, how the Big 3 Miami Heat re-tooled in the offseason, how the Dallas Mavericks cheaped out and immediately saw disastrous results along with several other discussions about the NBA past and present.

Join us for our holiday special, a night of laughs, nostalgia and so much more.
