Episode 77 - 10/6/2013

New season, new intro, same old awesome dudes talking about basketball.
00:00 - Intro / Media Day
August 19, 2013 05:59 PM PDT
Intro - Final Judgement on Plan Powder
July 02, 2013 09:01 PM PDT
Judgement day is near. But first, a lot of talking and no signatures during the free-agency waiting period. CIrcumstances dictate that this is a make or break summer for the Mavs as it relates to "breaking up" the 2011 squad. We kick it off right with two of our favorite Mavs experts, Mark Followill and Jeff "Skin" Wade joining us.
Intro - Catching Up & Skynet
April 24, 2013 08:01 PM PDT
Big gulps, eh? Alright! Welp… see ya later! The end of the regular season passes without a Mavericks playoff game for the first time since 2000. Like the owner, we're glad to move on from this season and date other people. But first, we want to cover Rick Carlisle's entertaining post-game OJ Mayo commentary, and the thoughts shared by Mark Cuban following the team's mathematical elimination from the playoff picture. Then, we look forward by pulling out the oldest segment we have - Buy, Sell, Hold - to run through Mavs FAs and possible FA acquisitions. More holes to fill than money to spend. A quick run through the playoffs in NBA Nuggets, and we close with some talk about Lam Lam and VIP floor tickets. Catch us again shortly after the draft in June.
Intro - Banter / Rick on OJ
March 25, 2013 10:55 PM PDT
John Hollinger says there's a better than 15% chance the Mavs sneak into the playoffs; we're not so sure, but there's still hope to cling to. TV Voice of the Mavs and favorite guest Mark Followill joins us in the first hour-plus to cover the emergence of Mike James as a starter and Brandan Wright back into the rotation, in addition to some bigger picture topics. We cover some NBA Nuggets and take a detour for some Story Time with Rhylan - stepping through ceilings and witnessing bathroom brawls at the AAC. Enjoy.
Intro - Mike James & Brandan Wright Break Through (w/ Mark Followill)
February 19, 2013 07:58 PM PST
Back from too long a break just in time for the trade deadline. As usual, we stack the trade deadline show with goodness from a guest - this year, Mavs' TV play-by-play voice Mark Followill jumps on, as we hammer out the world's longest single podcast segment covering all manner of trade deadline discussions and State of the Mavs angles therein.
Intro - MJ Gives Dirk Love
January 22, 2013 09:03 PM PST
Watching Mavericks basketball has become a little more fun lately, and so has talking about them. There's a sliver of hope out there - if you're so inclined to reach for it. The usual suspects here in this episode, including the umpteenth point guard segment.
Intro - Catching Up / End-Game PG Situation
January 03, 2013 09:38 PM PST
You'd think there would be less to talk about when your team is 13-20 and looking at the draft lottery for the first time in 13 years, but this podcast says otherwise. Lots of games to look back at, some bad ones, consideration of moral victories, color from the coach, blowouts and overtimes, Boogie Cousins and a big ol' box of Nuggets. Yep.
Intro - What Arrived from Amazon.com?
December 27, 2012 10:04 AM PST
Dirk comes back, Derek Fisher bails, Cash Sirois of the Mavs and The Ticket joins us to talk Dirk Documentary, Rhylan rants about the Spurs (again), the White Boy Bracket comes to a close, and Keith Sweat makes a cameo appearance.
Intro - It's Cold, It's Christmas
December 17, 2012 09:39 PM PST
Back after skipping a week, the Mavs are in the middle of a very tough stretch of games. We cover the last four games, look at whether or not the Mavs will be close to .500 when Dirk gets back, and tweak our future expectations for Collison and Mayo for the umpteenth time.
Intro - Shenanigans and Game Recaps (SAC, @BOS, @TOR, @MIN)
December 04, 2012 08:52 PM PST
The schedule is about to turn tough, and the Mavs have turned to 38-year-old Derek Fisher to help shore up the PG spot. We talk about why, what to expect, and what this means for the future prospects of Darren Collison. Elsewhere in player development, we get into the disappearance of Brandan Wright, and the evolution of Vince Carter as presented in an article by Zach Lowe of Grantland.com. Another week of NBA Nuggets and another two rounds of the White Boy Bracket and previews for the upcoming week of games wrap things up int he second hour.
Intro - Derek Fisher Signing and Impact
November 26, 2012 09:07 PM PST
The .500 Rule holds with the Mavs at 7-7 following a light schedule on Thanksgiving week. We can all agree that there aren't any takeaways from that game against the Lakers, but there's plenty to talk about regarding Elton Brand's role and general offensive woes in the first hour. We cover both with Jeff "Skin" Wade of ESPN 103.3 in the second hour as well. In-depth discussion of the "flow" offense is a can't miss. The first round of the White Boy Bracket, pretty much a formality, and a quick look ahead at the Mavs' upcoming road-heavy schedule wrap things up.
Intro - Game Recaps (NYK, LAL) and Various Asides
November 20, 2012 08:29 PM PST
The Mavs are treading water at 6-6, with everyone holding their breath for news on Dirk. We got some news today, with Dirk's first media Q&A in some time. We have the audio straight from the source, plus our always stellar (?) analysis. In addition to the usual game breakdowns and NBA Nuggets, we cover the state of the PG position on the team, and open up our White Guy Bracket series with seeding discussion.
Intro - Dirk on Dirk
November 13, 2012 08:15 PM PST
The Dirk-less Mavs are 4-4. We have a busy week-plus to recap, with the Mavs going to 4-1 and then dropping three straight. TV Voice of the Mavs Mark Followill jumps on for the opening segment to catch us up on his eventful life, thoughts on Dirk, and Shawn Marion's status for this week. In addition to the usual staples, Bryan has reasons to be optimistic and reasons to be pessimistic, because he's balanced like that.
Intro - Interview w/ Mark Followill
November 03, 2012 08:56 AM PDT
Real games that actually count are being played. The NBA is back, and it's not a weird season. It's not a compressed schedule. It's just basketball. We break down the Mavs opening western road trip, and SI.com's Rob Mahoney joins us in the first hour to do the same.
We have as-it-happened reaction to Troy Murphy news, discussion on how concerned we are with Dirk's knee, and a generous helping of NBA Nuggets to get the season started on the right foot.
Intro - Game Recaps (@LAL, @UTA)
October 13, 2012 08:10 PM PDT
Summer is over and so is the MOR hiatus. Back in time to cover the Mavs coming back home for media day, and their trip to Europe for exhibition preseason games in Germany and Spain. TV Voice of the Mavericks, Mark Followill joins us in the second hour as we get back into the swing of talking Mavs & NBA ball.
Intro - Bryan's Day with Dirk and the Introductory Press Conference
August 09, 2012 12:25 PM PDT
The Mavericks Outsider Report is happy to announce that there will, in fact, be a 2012-2013 Dallas Mavericks season, despite what occurred in the first week of July. We're taking a look at how the Mavs Brain Trust made the pieces fit, and how they'll start to look on the court together. Rob Mahoney checks in to give us a report on the Vegas Summer League, where the Mavericks had several more guys likely to make their NBA roster than in many years. Being smack in the middle of summer, we also take the opportunity to talk Olympics and Bryan's foray into MLB watching.
Intro - Plan B vs. Presumptive Plan A
July 05, 2012 08:05 PM PDT
Free Agency, Summer 2012. Here it is. Big show, big topics, big thoughts. We're not really sure what to title the segments for this episode, because there's really only one topic at hand. Mark Followill joins us in the second hour for a full hour of uninterrupted Mavs talk. Listen in as we try to see a path forward for the Mavs.
Intro - Working Backwards from Kidd to D-Will
May 09, 2012 08:32 PM PDT
Time to look back, and start looking forward. As brief as the title defense was, it warrants some analysis before we go full-on into what promises to be an active summer for the Mavs. TV Voice of the Mavericks Mark Followill jumps on to talk about where the Mavs fell short this year and how they might start to approach the offseason. The playoffs keep trucking along without the Mavs, which means lots of entertaining nuggets from around the league presented themselves this week, and we wrap up the 2011-2012 season by grading the roster.
Intro - Recapping the Sweep
May 02, 2012 09:48 PM PDT
We find ourselves looking up from an 0-2 hole alongside our beloved Mavericks this week, and discuss what happened, why it happened, what we think we learned, and whether or not it can be fixed in short order. Bryan shares some stories from the road trip to OKC, and we dine on some playoff flavored Nuggets as you might expect.
Intro - Feeling Better, or Feeling Worse? And Cowherd.
April 22, 2012 08:52 PM PDT
We're finally at the end of the regular season, with only one game remaining against the Atlanta Hawks. Minutes are being managed, and games are still played to win, but only to a degree. The Mavs helped to end the Houston Rockets' playoff hopes earlier this week, before playing Golden State and Chicago in more limited engagements. We get into the key takeaways from all three games, and spend the rest of the first hour covering all manner of intellectual pursuits with TV Voice of the Mavericks and friend of the show Mark Followill. Potential playoff match-ups for the Mavs, wrinkles in the rotation, and several other illuminating topics are on the agenda.
Bryan puts together a list of regular season highlights and lowlights for a brief retrospective, NBA Nuggets provide ample material as always. With only one game remaining in the regular season, we take extra time to discuss potential seeding outcomes for the Mavs.
Intro - Game Recaps: HOU, GS, @CHI
April 17, 2012 08:44 PM PDT
Only four games remain in the regular season. The Mavs just returned home from a western road trip, where four overtimes were played in two days. We try to figure out what, if anything, we learned about the post-Odom Mavs on this swing.
Jason Kidd recently talked about his desire to play one more year, so we look into what that means in terms of fit on the court, and fit within the cap, based on the highly anticipated summer 2012 free agent season for Dallas. This week's show marks the return of Buy, Sell, or Hold from the early days of MOR, along with the usual NBA nugget and game preview topics.
Don't miss a quick hit at the end of the show, with details on when & where to find Bryan's book about the 2010-2011 World Champion Mavs.
Intro - Lead Story: The West Willie
April 12, 2012 07:21 PM PDT
There's no doubting that the Lamar Odom story has provided countless hours of analysis and speculation from everyone who covers the Mavs on every media outlet, across all formats, and in front of water coolers and on message boards throughout DFW. Now, we are finally addressing what will hopefully be the final chapter in that saga.
It comes at a critical time for the Mavs as they start a stretch of 8 games in 12 nights where playoff positioning, and maybe even a spot in the playoffs, will pivot on every game. Rob Mahoney of TrueHoop and several other storied outlets joins us to talk about both of these big topics, alongside our usual helping of recaps, analysis, and NBA Nuggets from around the league.
Intro - Lead Story: Lamar Odom is Out
April 04, 2012 05:28 PM PDT
Deep into the stretch run, and fresh off of an intolerably bad game against the Clippers, MOR looks back on an up-and-down week where the Mavs went 2-2 and got run out of the gym twice in the process. Delonte West is back, and we'll discuss what that means on the court and in the locker room. Jason Terry continues to talk, so we continue talking about his talking.
Intro - The Importance of Delonte West and MOR's Willis Reed
June 22, 2011 09:12 PM PDT
We're on location from Twisted Root Burger on SMU Blvd in Dallas, celebrating the Mavs' first NBA Championship as only MOR can do - live and loose. Mavs' TV Voice Mark Followill gains plus-one status, jumping on for the first hour and half of the second hour. There's plenty of basking and gloating, but also reflection on how the Mavs managed to run through Portland, LA, OKC and Miami en route to the first title for the franchise. If you're not ready to stop celebrating, put the first four segments on repeat. If you insist on looking forward, we'll oblige you with some discussion on the draft, labor talks, and outlook for the Mavs' free agents.
Intro - Basking in Championship Glory (w/ Mark Followill)
June 08, 2011 09:10 PM PDT
Smack in the middle of the 2011 NBA Finals, we find the Mavs tied up 2-2 with the hated Miami Heat, coming off of a gutsy Game 4 victory at the AAC. Our first podcast since the beginning of the Finals, we'll break down the most recent Game 4 and look back at key elements of the series thus far. Mavs' TV Voice Mark Followill jumps on for a typically man-sized segment, looking at the historical context of Game 5 and what this series means for Mavs fans. As always, some tasty NBA Nuggets found their way onto the agenda, and we'll close the show looking forward at the few, very important games remaining in the 2010-2011 season.
Intro - Recapping Game 4
February 24, 2011 11:12 PM PST
Our Trade Deadline extravaganza is chock full of NBA shenanigans with Mavs implications from top to bottom. TV voice of the Mavs Mark Followill joins us early, and Jeff "Skin" Wade of ESPN 103.3 jumps on late, helping us cover it all. Ball, burgers, opinionated canines, and more ball. An oversized show for an oversized day in hoops.
