Excellent podcast. Mike is a great interviewer and always shows up having done his homework and gets great stories out of his guests. Great to get to hear stories from the past. I became a mavs fan in the early 2000s and have really enjoyed getting to learn of the players in the 80s/90s. Marquis Daniels and Josh Howard are must listen.

If you would like to hear Rolando discuss more about that game on other podcasts, I would suggest checking out The Athletic's "77 Minutes in Heaven" episode with Rolando, or my friend Adam Ryan's "In All Airness" podcast episode with Rolando as well. Both are fantastic episodes!) Ro also discusses the Mavericks' experience playing the 1980s "Showtime" Lakers, and some memorable games at Reunion Arena against Larry Bird and Dr. J. Of course, this conversation also includes Ro's recollection of this clutch free throws in the 1987 All Star Game, a legendary moment in NBA History!
