74: How To Catch A Whale with Ethan Skolnick (The Miami Herald)

June 7, 2016

Welcome to The Heat Beat Podcast, a weekly NBA podcast hosted by Giancarlo Navas and Brian Goins bringing you the latest dose of Miami Heat news, insight, and commentary.

In this edition of The Heat Beat Podcast, Gianni returns from his voyages in Europe with a surprise. We landed the greatest whale of all, Ethan Skolnick of The Miami Herald, as our special guest alongside Leif, Harrison Cytryn, and Brian Goins.

• Ethan starts off the show with his greatest Birdman story, which might have...or might have not...trumped Israel Gutierrez's story he shared on our show 👀 • We learn about HEAT culture and what the final weeks were like for Mario "Motherbleeper" Chalmers 😂 • We discuss why Joe Johnson and/or Luol Deng might not return, which makes Harrison glee with joy and Gianni praying for a miracle 😑 • Ethan answers if there's longing between LeBron and the Miami HEAT, and if Pau Gasol was really on board with Miami in the 2014 free agency 😎 • We end the rest of the show reacting about the first half of the show and stumbles through the end with his six-hour jet lag 😔 … and so much more
