Check out Tuesday’s Salt City Hoops Podcast from the 1320 studios. The new hosts of 1320′s afternoon show, Tony Parks and Ben Bagley joined me and Chris Kamrani, the sports editor of Park City’s Park Record.
Chris and Ben talk Jazz from 0:00 – 14:00.
Tony talks about covering the visitors’ locker room for Jazz games from 14:00 – 31:00. For some reason I talk about the Team USA players celebrating their Olympic win in 2008 with “the trophy.” Last time I checked, Olympic champions get medals, not trophies.
Skip to about the 31:00 minute mark and listen to the end for spectacular appearances by Fake Kevin O’Connor, Fake Hot Rod Hundley, and especially Fake Marv Albert.
Thanks to everybody for jumping on, as well as to 1320′s Austin Horton for production.
To better illustrate what Chris is talking about, @chaseames pointed out this clip of Hayward’s legendary game against the Lakers last season:
Chase agrees with Chris that Hayward should be the primary ball handler. As John Hollinger has pointed out, Hayward sometimes get caught running the “pick and nothing.” With the ball in his control he seems to thrive and have much more confidence.
In today’s episode, we may or may not discuss a certain tiff between a certain Utah Jazz owner and a certain former Utah Jazz power forward (and no, I’m not referring to Sam Battisone and Truck Robinson).
We also discuss basketball (!) with tonight’s big upcoming game vs. Los Angeles, and we offer up more trivia for a chance to win free tickets to an upcoming Jazz game.
Alright, well I’m like 30 minutes late to an autograph signing… Enjoy the show.
We kick off the 2011-12 season with some discussion about the Chris Paul / Lakers fiasco, Jazz media day, and the upcoming season. Forgive the poor audio quality — we bypassed the studio and went straight to the homebrew/Skype solution.
Enjoy, and let us know your thoughts.
After letting the story marinate for a week, we finally weigh in on the demise of the Utah Flash. I give some spectacular tips on making the D-League viable in Utah, forget Jordan Farmar’s name, talk too much, and accidentally (and incorrectly) make it sound like I thought Jerry Sloan was a candidate for the Lakers’ coaching spot.
We also get in to some draft talk and discuss Jimmer, because we know you love that kind of thing.

The illustrious Kurt Kragthorpe of the Salt Lake Tribune was nice enough to join us on the Salt City Hoops podcast last night. Kurt is a man who needs no introduction among Jazz fans and has been covering Utah sports since the days of Frank Layden. He shares his thoughts on today’s Jazz and gives us a few anecdotes from back in the day.
As usual, I was joined in the studio by Justin Davies (@jhjustin) from Jazz Hype. We cover a lot of ground, so let us know what you think in the comments.
A special thanks to the UVU Digital Media Department for providing the excellent studio space and to our producer Jonathan Knudtson.
The Salt City Hoops podcast is back after several weeks of recording and then gathering cobwebs on a jump drive in my bag. But we’re back, and I hope you don’t mind listening to Justin Davies and me talking about Al Jefferson, Ronnie Price, the draft lottery, Larry Krystkowiak, and Premiere League-style relegation for NBA teams instead of contraction.
Special thanks to the Department of Digital Media at Utah Valley University for inviting us to use their new recording studio and providing first-rate production from Jonathan Knudson.
Episode one of the Official Salt City Hoops Podcast in which our heros discuss the DWill trade, the secret plan to sell the Jazz and Kevin O’Connor’s surprisingly keen draft picks (with some obvious exceptions). Featuring Spencer Hall and Chris Kirkham of Salt City Hoops and Justin Davies of Jazz Hype and music from Fictionist.
This podcast will soon be available for download from iTunes with weekly installments for the foreseeable future featuring interviews with players and coaches, exclusive audio with past players and front office heads and shenanigans aplenty.
