The early part of the NBA season has been defined by a torrent of incredible Steph Curry highlights and an alternate, uglier torrent of Kobe Bryant lowlights, wherein the Lakers superstar is hopelessly air-balling shot after shot as his teammates—still regarded by Kobe as mere assistants—look on helplessly. Kobe looks beyond finished, and yet there’s still an entire season to go. Will he make it that far? Will they have to shoot him and drag him off the court to get him to leave? That’s the subject of this week’s Deadcast.

Oh, but always, there is more. We also stare into the abyss of Grantland obituaries and discuss the sordid logistics of trophy fucking. If you have anything you’d like to hear discussed on the podcast, just send it in to tips@deadspin.com with the subject line DEADCAST. You can listen to the show here or download it over at the iTunes store.
