Broader coverage, please
I just started listening to this podcast. I like the banter and the perspectives, but I really thought the guys would cover more teams than they do. The most recent podcast was mostly about the Knicks, Lakers and the Heat. It's really a disservice to the league and the fans that the podcasters don't dig into more teams. Only passing mentions at the "quarter pole" to dominating teams like the Grizzlies, Thunder and the Spurs; or why the Nuggets are struggling. The Sixers. The Jazz. Even the Warriors (my team) got very superficial analysis, indicating that the commentators aren't paying very much attention. C'mon guys. Be better than the national media, look past the so-called super-powers and explore the breadth and depth of the league. It would make the podcast a lot more interesting and engaging. Thanks.
Love Sekou and Vinces arguments. Neither are afraid to show their opinions and have a great up an coming podcast here.
Solid as always, more episodes please!
I've been listening to the show for about a year and a half or so. While the audio is occasionally not the best since the hosts are basically teleconferencing from different cities, the content is great. The addition if Rick Fox has been awesome this year. All three offer great insight but it is always cool to hear it from a guy who has been there firsthand. Good job guys but it would be so much better to maybe do the show twice a week, that is the advantage other hoops podcasts have.
