After a not-so-Merry Christmas for NBA fans during the Omicron variant surge, Adam Murray and Andrew Riche, Place To Be Nation’s NBA-Team, have returned from the holiday break to start fresh on the new year for the 2021-22 NBA season. On this episode, they catch up on the replacement player wave, how teams are handling the health and safety protocol, and Kyrie Irving’s road game return to the Nets. Is the worst wave of team stoppages behind us? Are the Atlanta Hawks going to miss the playoffs? Can Dirk Nowitzki score in an NBA game right now? Did Lance Stephenson really score 20 points in a quarter or was that a fever dream? Riche and Adam also discuss the Raptors’ strange home court advantage… with no fans, DeMar DeRozan’s buzzer beaters, the surging Memphis Grizzlies, and more! So suit up and take it out with the NBA-Team!
