Toros Nation Podcast #5: Catching up

I was joined by Jeff Garcia for episode 5 of the Toros Nation Podcast.

We talked about the last five Austin Toros games before we moved onto some news, including Marcus Cousin making it to the D-League All-Star game, former Toro Eddie Basden being a quarter-inch over the height limit for imports of the Philippines Basketball League and the recent three-team trade that netted the Toros big man Eric Boateng.

We also discussed covering the Toros-Thunderbirds game a few weeks back before moving on to our topic of the week, which was if the Spurs should’ve left rookie James Anderson in Austin longer to continue rehab and conditioning work, especially since he’s playing very few minutes since rejoining the Spurs.

Before we closed out this episode, we also wish Toros guard Carldell “Squeaky” Johnson a Happy Belated Birthday.

Intro: Shoot to Thrill by AC/DC.

Toros Nation Podcast #4: Interview with Eddie Basden

Eddie BasdenIt’s been a while, but the Toros Nation Podcast is back with an interview with former Toros guard Eddie Basden.

Jeff Garcia guest hosted along with Mikkayla Guillett and had a chance to speak with Basden before he heads out to play professionally in the Philippines.

Basden played for the Toros last season, averaging 12.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game.

Jeff and Mikkayla asked Eddie about his experience with the Toros, how it helped in his career, playing overseas and what it would take to get him back to the NBA among other questions.

Check back in a few weeks as we keep tabs on Basden’s progress in the Philippines and follow Eddie on twitter @showtyme103.
