Buzz Beat Ep. 24: Playing Pickup with Oliver Maroney

The Buzz Beat crew are joined by DIME Magazine contributor, Oliver Maroney, to examine two of his articles. The discussion begins with Oliver’s “unofficial” guide to pickup basketball. The three consider which rules are the most important to uphold, which ones are unfamiliar, and if any rules can be added to the list. Oliver shares his thoughts on Briante Weber as he wrote a fascinating piece on Weber and his path to the NBA. The question of whether or not Briante has a future with the Hornets inevitably comes up.  The dialogue also touches upon the Hornets’ 16-17 season and their prospects moving into the 17-18 season. The episode wraps up with Richie answering your Twitter questions.
