Brought to you by www.thesportsstuff.com, "The Crossover" is a combination of Knicks and Nets talk rolled into one disjointed package. Co-hosts Rusty & PMAC, two mad Aussie hoops junkies and fans of Nets and Knicks basketball respectively, give you game recaps, news and previews mixed in with smack-talk, random player abuse and sometimes even the odd bit of manlove. "The Crossover" is truly a no holds barred take on NY/NJ basketball.

The Timberwolves had a couple of very entertaining games vs Boston and Chicago, but with no Karl Anthony Towns in the next two games, things down spiraled into some of the worst basketball we've seen all year. Vig It App Referral: Paladinolive facebook.com/timberwolvesexplosion @TwolvesEx paladinolive@yahoo.com…
 
Yes, Kahkonen got shelled by St. Louis, but under using him isn't going to build anything positive, including OVER-using Talbot, history proves this. Minnesota continues it's dominance over a tail-spinning Arizona club, can they once again?

It's finally time to focus on the 2021 Draft, and what direction the Vikings could and should go. Will they finally shore up the offensive line, take a quarterback, and/or just focus on defense yet again? facebook.com/purplemafiashow @purplemafiashow paladinolive@yahoo.com
 
There are moments when it looks like this team is figuring it out defensively, and then you see it get even worse. Sure it's nice to comeback and make games interesting, but falling behind by over 20 points to depleted teams is not going to cut it. Vig It Referral: Paladinolive facebook.com/timberwolvesexplosion @TwolvesEx paladinolive@yahoo.com…
 
The Minnesota Wild's power play has taken a grand turn for the better, and it showed this past wee, despite some strange line ups. The Minnesota Wild continue to be a step ahead of Vegas, as that rivalry is growing. Kevin Fiala has been outstanding on the power play, as he got a hat trick in a dominant 8-3 victory over the red hot Colorado Avalanch…
 
A lot to say here, as we saw two horrendous games vs Houston, that left us again questioning the seriousness and professionalism of the leadership of this team. The Wolves followed up with two competitive games, where they fell short in Brooklyn, and ultimately a clutch performance vs Thibs' Knicks in Target Center, by the future stars of this fran…
 
This week, Joey is joined by Derek Felska of @creasandassist! We talk many topics regarding the Wild, including the elephant in the room, Puck Possession and Face offs.

It was the old two steps forward, three steps back for the Wolves this past week. After such a great game against Phoenix, things just didn't go so well for Minnesota. Vig It App Referral: Paladinolive facebook.com/timberwolves @TwolvesEx paladinolive@yahoo.com
 
The Minnesota Wild were demolished in Colorado, losing a combined 11-1 in two games, where it felt like the Wild never had the puck. Thankfully, Minnesota was able to squeeze out two wins back home vs Anaheim, despite them not being pretty games.

The Minnesota Vikings have been active in free agency, but it certainly has come at a cost, saying goodbye to the likes of Kyle Rudolph and especially troubling in losing Riley Reiff with no replacement as of yet. The Good news however is the Vikings are set at Defensive Tackle, signing Dalvin Tomlinson, along with the surprise signing of 10 time p…
 
Anthony Edwards is showing signs of what he really can be in this league. Your host is seeing what he saw before the draft, and the reason why "Ant" was taken number one overall. Chemistry is showing with the stars on this team, along with the connection between Rubio and Edwards. The Timberwolves appear to be a more organized and more confident bu…
 
The Minnesota Wild swept the three game series vs the Arizona Coyotes, and did so in impressive fashion. Despite not looking so great in the early minutes of the first game, Kirill Kaprizov just took over, and set the tone for the rest of the series. Cam Talbot and Kaapo Kahkonen were downright fantastic, each getting a shutout, and giving up one t…
 
Kaapo Kahkonen continues to show that he's not only an NHL goalie, but someone who deserves strong consideration to be a number one net minder. The Wild played fantastic hockey, beating the Vegas Golden Knights twice, in what looked like two epic playoff games. If only this club had even a decent middle of the road power play, they might be cup con…
 
The annual Granddaddy of them all is here, as we put a bow on the 2020 Vikings season, and look ahead to 2021 with free agency and draft conversation. We then get to the fan interaction segment, hearing from Gerald Syring, then we pass out the Stars of the year, and finally we name our 2021 Purple Mafia Hall Of Fame Class! facebook.com/purplemafias…
 
The Timberwolves head into the break with another bad week, losing all three games. The home loss to Charlotte by 33 points took the cake, it left us all wondering like Ricky Rubio, what is the direction of this franchise? facebook.com/timberwolvesexplosion @TwolvesEx paladinolive@yahoo.com
 
Kirill Kaprizov continues to shine and dazzle, Marcus Foligno also had a great week. Unfortunately, some of the old country club nonsense reared it's ugly head late in Vegas on Monday night, leading to Zach Parise getting scratched for Wednesday's game. facebook.com/bravethewild facebook.com/mnwplayers @bravethewild: #BTWMN @mnwprospects gonepuckwi…
 
With Ryan Saunders out and Chris Finch in, we will see how this new offense improves this team in the next few weeks and months ahead. Anthony Edwards couldn't hit the broad side of a barn most of the week, and we'll be losing Malik Beasley for 12 games, with the suspension being levied out. facebook.com/timberwolvesexplosion @TwolvesEx paladinoliv…
 
When you put the right lines together, amazing things can happen. Dean Evason putting Kaprizov, Rask and Zuccarello together, along with Ryan Hartman centering the third line, has made for some very effective and entertaining hockey! facebook.com/bravethewild.minnesota facebook.com/mwnprospects @bravethewild @mnwprospects paladinolive@yahoo.com…
 
The Minnesota Wild are back, but are a shell of themselves at the moment, not that they weren't already thin at a certain spot to begin with... Luckily there are a number of prospects shining in the College world and overseas. facebook.com/bravethewild.minnesota facebook.com/mnwprospects @bravethewild @mnwprospects paladinolive@yahoo.com…
 
The Timberwolves played somewhat competitive basketball this past week, making things interesting in multiple games where they were trailing by over 20 points. D'Angelo Russell hit a three to beat OKC, and Naz Reid had a huge week. Karl Anthony Towns finally returns after a tough battle with Covid-19, in a pretty entertaining match-up vs the Clippe…
 
The Minnesota Wild games are still postponed with Covid-19 protocols, so we have more time to talk about the prospects in the system, especially the Iowa Wild now. Mikki Koivu announced his retirement this week, we talk about that, and get to your other questions at #BTWMN on twitter! facebook.com/bravethewild.minnesota facebook.com/mnwprospects @b…
 
Tom Brady with the excellent Buccaneers offense and defense pretty much dominated Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. Brady was outstanding, particularly in the first half, to help the Bucs build a big lead, while the powerful Tampa defense took care of business after that, versus a depleted Chiefs offensive line. The Vikin…
 
To be fair, one positive this week was Anthony Edwards officially becoming a starter and very much has looked the part, when we analyze some very important indicators with him in the starting lineup. Other than that though, we saw yet another epic collapse, this time vs San Antonio, which left many of us wondering, what in God's Name is D'Angelo do…
 
After an up and down week which involved a suspension for Kevin Fiala, injuries to Matt Dumba, Jared Spurgeon and Marcus Johansson, covid 19 has officially struck the Wild. The Wild's next four games have been postponed, so we will have a slightly different show this week and next, but there certainly isn't a shortage of things to talk about. faceb…
 
Losing and injuries are one thing, but obvious disinterest is another. No one wants to pile on, but D'Angelo Russell has lost many a Wolves fan the past month or so. As to what's really happening behind the scenes is something to stay tuned to, because things could get interesting in the next few weeks. facebook.com/timberwolvesexplosion @TwolvesEx…
 
The 2015 Draft is certainly looking better these days, with the emergence of Joel Ericksson Ek and Jordan Greenway. (Along with Kaprizov of course). Unfortunately, the absolute lack of a legitimate center continues to plague this club. facebook.com/bravethewild.minnesota facebook.com/mnwprospects @bravethewild #btwmn paladinolive@yahoo.com…
 
The Kansas City Chiefs are back in the Super Bowl, with a fairly one sided win over Buffalo, while Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took care of business in Lambeau, despite Mike Evans nearly gave it all away. Will Aaron Rogers return to Green Bay? facebook.com/purplemafiashow @purplemafiashow paladinolive@yahoo.com…
 
Kirill Kaprizov is off to a very strong start to his NHL career, as he is showing that he is translating to the NHL level almost immediately. The Wild Power Play has struggled mightily, as the lack of true centers is still a glaring issue, but thankfully Minnesota has a 3-1 record to open the season. facebook.com/bravethewild.minnesota @bravethewil…
 
We enjoyed some high quality football this past week, including a controversial play or two and maybe the end of a legend's career. Next week's Championship Sunday should be spectacular, as there isn't a bad match up as any of the four remaining teams can win it all in my estimation. facebook.com/purplemafiashow @purplemafiashow paladinolive@yahoo.…
 
Another frustrating week of runs, leads evaporating and a stat that barely makes any sense. At the Wolves won one game this week, and hopefully Towns' angry post game rant can lead to more success this coming week. facebook.com/timberwolvesexplosion @TwolvesEx paladinolive@yahoo.com
 
In a nasty week where the Wolves went 0-4 in despicable fashion, we're literally digging for positives. At least Rosas and Co may have found a pretty solid rotation player in the new Junkyard Dawg! facebook.com/timberwolvesexplosion @TwolvesEx paladinolive@yahoo.com
 
Another Vikings season comes to a close, and once again we're stuck somewhere at or near the middle, which does nobody any good. Many a fan wants to move on from Zimmer, but we can't yet... Many a fan wants to move on from Cousins, but we can't yet... Your host makes his postseason predictions, and of course gets to all your comments and thank you …
 
Timberwolves Basketball is finally back in full force! Of course after an extremely positive night, in which the Wolves won in Utah, Karl Anthony Towns is injured again, this time dislocating the same wrist he broke last year. Josh Okogie also is banged up, in what was called a cramp but looked more like a pulled hamstring. D'Angelo Russell continu…
 
The Minnesota Wild and the NHL are finally back again, at least in January! Much optimism surrounds this franchise, which has wallowed in mediocrity for so long. We finally have legitimate prospects, some of them already on the Minnesota Wild roster! We talk about every player going into the season, preview the NHL season standings and such, and wh…
 
What more can you say? The Vikings gave up seven rushing touchdowns to the Saints on Christmas day, six of them to Alvin Kamara, the most since Ernie Nevers in 1929. facebook.com/purplemafiashow @purplemafiashow paladinolive@yahoo.com
 
The Vikings defense has been so depleted of key players, it's no wonder they can't stop the run during this lost year. Cousins was solid in the game, but once again couldn't get the pass protection when needed most. Cook was elite but this team cannot put all their eggs in his basket, because in the long run, that never works. facebook.com/purplema…
 
The Minnesota Timberwolves and NBA Season Preview is here! We look at the Wolves overall roster and hopes for the future, your host certainly sees reason for optimism. We then talk about who makes the playoffs in both the East and the West, who gets to the Conference Finals, the NBA Finals, and who is your likely 2020 NBA Champion! As always, we ge…
 
Dan Bailey was the first kicker to miss all four kicks in one game since 1961, he's a huge reason why the Vikings lost, but certainly not the only reason. The Vikings were undisciplined time and time again with repeat unnecessary hits, holds and interference which left many a Vikings fan more than miffed all day. facebook.com/purplemafiashow @purpl…
 
In one of the ugliest games you will ever see, the Vikings barely crawled past the second worst team in the league and somehow are the 3rd Wild Card team in the NFC, due to Arizona's ongoing collapse. facebook.com/purplemafiashow @purplemafiashow paladinolive@yahoo.com
 
In a game that was filled with ups and downs for both sides, the much maligned Chad Beebe had a moment that would have crushed many a reserve player. When Beebe fumbled the punt with only 2:18 remaining in the game, it looked like all was lost and I was calling for Beebe's head. When given opportunities on what would be the game winning drive, Beeb…
 
The Timberwolves ended up taking Anthony Edwards first overall, but after that is when trades slowly starting slipping threw the cracks throughout the 2020 NBA Draft. The Wolves wound up reacquiring Ricky Rubio, making many a Timberwolves fan happy, while miffing a few others. Rosas also ended up re-signing Malik Beasley and traded for veteran Ed D…
 
BTW is back on the air for our annual Thanksgiving tradition, despite there being no NHL hockey going on at the moment. We get into the NHL Retro Reverse Jerseys, looking at creativity, or lack there of. We're all still waiting for yet another labor dispute to come together so we can have a start date for NHL Hockey again. facebook.com/bravethewild…
 
We just knew there would be a letdown at some point, and here it was. Kris Boyd made the kind of mistakes that often get players cut in the preseason. As for someone called Chris Jones, how he doesn't get cut after literally "passing up" on a play, I don't know who would. facebook.com/purplemafiashow @purplemafiashow paladinolive@yahoo.com…
 
Purple Mafia Episode 328: This game had a few very rare things occur, the Vikings winning on Monday night, a win in Chicago, and Kirk Cousins finally winning his first EVER Monday game, at age 32. Justin Jefferson continues to show that the Vikings struck gold in the draft pick acquired in the Stefon Diggs trade. facebook.com/purplemafiashow @purpl…
