Man-To-Man

Man-To-Man Podcast is strictly NBA talk, but with a twist. Both Andy and Liam bring a different vibe to the traditional sports talk show - Andy undoubtedly taking the wildcard role and Liam acting as a moderator. But what's the twist? Think about it - have you ever burst out laughing while listening to Adrian Wojnarowski (no disrespect to Woj) or Brian Windhorst? Man-To-Man not only brings you instrumental facts, predictions and analyzation to the table, but also cracks ridiculous jokes as well as creates a conversation between themselves and the listener. Enjoy!

The two popular options that have been proposed to the league and NBA commissioner Adam Silver is the the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, Florida and MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Episode 19 - Garrison Mathews "Professional Shooter"

This week Andy and Liam have the opportunity to interview their first professional NBA player, Garrison Mathews, shooting guard for the Washington Wizards. Given the season's indefinite suspension by Adam Silver, Mathews had some extra time to talk about his journey of making it to the NBA coming from a small, mid-major school. When asked about his accolades in college, he emphasized the importance of being a team player and how much the coaches, mentors, and teammates he's had have impacted his success. With the intention of making a full time roster spot on the Wizards, the nickname "Professional Shooter" has given birth as Mathews dropped a career-high 28 points against a young and talented Miami Heat team. Playing alongside multiple superstars on the Wizards, Mathews talks about going one-on-one against John Wall in practice and how guarding Bradley Beal has increased his defensive-play drastically.
