Once or twice a week We do a podcast on this blog called the Chronicles of Crotty (called The Chronic for short thanks to Clipper Darrell... or the C.O.C.). It was named after back-up point guard, John Crotty, who played for several teams but was best known for his stint with the Utah Jazz playing behind John Stockton. Crotty is actually the current radio analyst for the Miami Heat.
But why Crotty? It went something like this.
RANDOM *in a very serious manner*: "So who... is... the greatest point guard of all-time?"
DAVE (immediately): "JOHN CROTTY!"
We laughed for about 15 minutes after Dave said that.
RANDOM: "Man, you can't even get serious about this."
DAVE: "We are! It's John Crotty!"
Anyway, after Dave and I made an appearance at the SpursCast, I slightly thought of making a podcast. But Peter was the one to step forward about doing one. He even came up with the name. So the Chronicles of Crotty was born.
It was originally going to be just me, Peter, and Dave. But our other friend, Nick, happened to be with me, when we were about to record our first podcast. So we added him to the mix. Jimmy was added at Episode 3. So our crew is basically filled with two Laker fans, two Clipper fans, and I'm a fan of both. Nick and I are based in the L.A. suburbs, Peter is at Burbank, Dave is in the O.C., and who knows where Jimmy is every time we do the podcast?
(From L to R: David Diep, Jimmy Castro, Nick Perkins, Rey Moralde, and Peter Kim)
Us five normally form the show. When one of us can't make it, our "sixth man" Brandon Tomyoy fills in the gap. We normally don't take ourselves too seriously. We're just a bunch of guys pretending to be NBA experts.
Our podcast runs normally from 45 minutes to about an hour (roughly). We divide our shows into three segments: General NBA, an L.A. segment, and a free-for-all (it could be a guest, a Q&A, etc.). And we'll make a bunch of dumb references from obscure NBA players to anything 90's-related, or whatever pop culture that comes up.
Nowadays, it's been hard for all of us to get together so we don't know when we're going to do a podcast next. But we're not putting this podcast on the shelf yet. We will do more episodes! It's just a matter of getting everyone together. It has been incredibly busy for all of us.
