‘The JV Show – Episode 1 – Lakers-Celtics NBA Finals Special’

On the night of the first Lakers-Celtics game in the 2010 NBA Finals, Daily News staff writer Jon Gold and Daily News sports columnist Vinnie Bonsignore start their new all-sports, all-the-time podcast, “The JV Show.”

To listen to today’s podcast, click the play button above, download this MP3, and look soon for a blog, RSS feed and iTunes listing devoted exclusively to “The JV Show.”

In this premiere episode, Jon and Vin debate whether or not Lakers-Celtics is the greatest sports rivalry of all time. They also discuss the L.A.-Boston matchups, whether Andrew Bynam is still a factor, and how not preparing for the Celtics can sink a team’s playoff hopes.

Jon and Vin also look at the Los Angeles Dodgers and what needs to happen to turn the team around.

They also talk about the perfect game that got away for Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga when umpire Jim Joyce declared a runner safe at first base and later admitted botching the call.


“The JV Show” is produced and engineered by Jon Gold and Steven Rosenberg. Theme music by Matt Evans.

    I’m sorry but I thought this was “inside UCLA”

    I couldn’t care less about the Lakers or the NBA

    There haven’t been any posts on this UCLA blog today about the Softball win or the status of John Wooden

    There are about a million and one other news outlets already yapping about the NBA finals

    Jon, you are too young and ignorant to know what you are talking about with respect to great national interest championship rivalries. The Lakers -boston is the best without a doubt, nobody worth anything cares about Boston and the yankee$. And that Barbarino guy – he is an idiot to think 11 national championships does not make UCLA the best college basketball team in history. You are both idiots in different areas of sports opinion. “Perspective!”
