After a podcast hiatus during the holidays, and pretty much the entire month of January, we return with a fresh new episode of the 4-Down Podcast. Our pal Beckley Mason of joins us to talk about some Spurs-related subject matter. We recorded shortly after the Spurs’ return-from-the-dead loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night, so we talked some about that game. We discussed how as boring as the Spurs are, the team’s games rarely go according to plan.

We also asked Beckley about DeJuan Blair. With the ascension of Tiago Splitter, Blair’s starting role and minutes are becoming a polarizing topic for some Spurs fans. Beckley gave us his opinion on Blair as an NBA player and where he stands.

Then, we talked a lot about pickup basketball. Most NBA bloggers are avid pickup aficionados, and we are no exception. We break down some pickup ball etiquette and share some stories. It’s not necessarily Spurs-related, but whatever, it’s where the conversation went.
