Locked On Podcast Network announced the addition of the Hollinger & Duncan NBA Show to their roster. 

The new show features Nate Duncan, host of the popular Dunc’d On podcast, as he partners with NBA analytics pioneer and former Memphis Grizzlies VP of Basketball Operations, John Hollinger. Duncan launched his NBA salary cap and scouting focused Dunc’d On podcast in 2015, after successfully practicing Law for eight years. A 9-minute preview of Hollinger and Duncan’s new podcast is currently available, but their first full episode will be released Monday, October 21st

In the announcement, Duncan expressed excitement about hosting a show with one of his idols. “John was basically my inspiration to get into basketball journalism. He’s been the writing gold standard for me since I first stumbled across his original site Alleyoop.com in 2002. Not only a basketball analytics pioneer, John’s expertise on every aspect of the NBA from scouting to game breakdowns to the salary cap means we can analyze anything that goes on in the NBA,” Duncan said. “We plan to bring top-level analysis of the league, its teams, and its players, but most importantly we want to be the first podcast that takes listeners behind the curtain of what is really going on in front offices.” 

Duncan and Hollinger’s passion for the NBA will be highlighted, as they join the platform built by another basketball-rooted personality, Utah Jazz radio play-by-play voice and Locked On founder, David Locke.

“Locked On is the established leader in daily, local NBA podcasts along with having the #1 NBA fantasy basketball podcast in the country,” said Locke. “We are excited to now have three distinct national NBA podcasts to serve our avid basketball audience. The expert league coverage provided by our daily Locked On NBA podcast team, the powerhouse analysts of Hollinger & Duncan and the unique insights found in our twice weekly Rejecting The Screen podcast.” 

Locke has previously worked with both Hollinger and Duncan. Hollinger recalled joining Locke on a Utah Jazz radio broadcast a decade ago.

“David is the ‘podfather’ of basketball podcasting, and has been both a friend and an admired broadcaster of mine for a long time. In fact, I had the pleasure of seeing him work in real-time when I joined him on a Jazz-Hawks broadcast in 2009. His back has never recovered from carrying me that day,” Hollinger said in the press release. “I’ve been a fan of his Locked On network from afar ever since, and I’m so happy to be able to join up with him in this venture.” 

With an extensive network of sports coverage featuring NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and College team shows, the Locked On podcast network continues to see its audience increase, reaching 6-million monthly listens.

Draymond Green, JJ Redick Sell Out Live Podcast Show

The show will collaborate for the first time and it will mark an interesting time in the thrusting of new media onto the public consciousness.

Old Man Draymond

The two new and most visible faces of the new media influx have teamed up for a live show that will take place in New York City. Draymond Green and JJ Redick are bringing their respective podcasts to the stage for a live experience.

On Monday (June 27), Draymond Green’s The Draymond Green Show and JJ Redick’s The Old Man and the Three will seek to entertain an already sold out audience at The City Winery in New York City.

The show will collaborate for the first time and it will mark an interesting time in the thrusting of new media onto the public consciousness. JJ Redick has earned universal praise for how he has handled his career post-retirement from the NBA, including appear often opposite Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s First Take as well as the network’s myriad of other programming.

Draymond Green has been very public with his podcast that has very publicly recorded episodes minutes after Warriors games. He has recently invoked his mantra that he isn’t a part of the media (despite signing a contract with Turner Sports and Colin Cowherd’s The Volume). Instead he insists he is a part of the aforementioned new media.

Scott Van Pelt Not Hurt By Draymond Green’s “New Media” Comment

“He’s the one that said it. Isn’t he the one who said he’s new media? I was just trying to give him credit in saying, ‘Look, you now have control of your narrative and you can go do your podcast now.’”

Scott Van Pelt

We have heard an awful lot in the fast month about “new media” with a large section of that discussion coming in regards to athletes in or formerly in the NBA. One such interaction was between a member of that new media and Scott Van Pelt.

After Game 5 of the NBA Finals, a victorious Draymond Green was interviewed on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt. In the interview, Van Pelt asked Green about dealing with the outside “noise” around the Finals. After Green gave a to-be-expected type answer, Van Pelt followed-up with the initial comment that start a wave.

Van Pelt: You’re part of the media now and you get to control the conversation from your perspective and I know you’ll-

Green: New media.

He then corrected Van Pelt’s assertion that Green had stated Stephen A. Smith was new media by saying:

Green: And by the way go watch The Draymond Green Show. I said Stephen A. sometimes acts like the new media. Sometimes he doesn’t. That’s on you, but nonetheless, don’t just lump me in with media, baby. It’s the new media.

Scott Van Pelt appeared on the SI Media Podcast and was asked about this exchange.

“I didn’t get that,” Van Pelt said of Green’s resistance in being associated with the word “media.”

“He’s the one that said it. Isn’t he the one who said he’s new media? I was just trying to give him credit in saying, ‘Look, you now have control of your narrative and you can go do your podcast now.’”

Van Pelt went on about Green’s categorizing of Smith and other media as a separate column of media.

“I guess what Draymond actually said was sometimes he’s new media. I don’t give a shit who’s what…I think now as it relates to media, there’s no new and old because people that are in the old media are doing the new media and people that are in new media are cutting through in ways that people in old media didn’t think they ever would many years ago. I guess all I’m saying is whatever Stephen A. is, he exists in both lanes and Draymond, clearly his content cuts through on his podcast or with me.

I wasn’t hurt by it. I didn’t take it like he was mad at me. I was just correcting the semantics. It didn’t trouble me. Whatever. However Draymond frames what Stephen A. Smith is or what any of us are, it doesn’t feel important. I think it’s important he has that place where he wants to do his thing. And I think people are interested in hearing from the guy that was just out there not long after saying what he has to say.”

Big Cat Asks For Listeners’ Help Booking Kevin Durant on Pardon My Take

Barstool’s Big Cat has been trying to book NBA star Kevin Durant on Pardon My Take for five years, but the former MVP just won’t say yes.

On a recent edition of the podcast, Big Cat talked about how the Brooklyn Nets star has continued to snub requests to come on the show.

“We want Kevin Durant on this show, and he has just alpha-ed me so hard at this point,” Big Cat said. “I need people to start replying to his tweets saying just go on Pardon My Take.”

It’s not like KD has given Big Cat the cold shoulder. Big Cat said Durant has responded to his DMs on Twitter before, even wishing him Happy Thanksgiving one year. But so far all attempts to get Durant on PMT have been futile.

“Maybe if we start getting some rings, then he’ll be like, ‘Yeah they’re an elite team, and I want to join up with them. And maybe I can help them win something,'” PFT Commenter said, referencing the fact that PMT is yet to be recognized with any podcasting awards.

Durant did more or less tell the podcast on Twitter he wasn’t interested on Wednesday.

Durant’s response probably still won’t deter Big Cat from trying to get Durant on the show, but at least they know where KD stands.
