A New Take
I just found this podcast and I'm really liking it for its new and original take on the NBA. The host has a great personality and I'm a big fan of the on-the-court/off-the-court discussions. Subbed!
Ok, needs more thought
A few good episodes but some evidence of lack of rehearsal. The last episode about Gilbert Arenas was unlistenable erms, uhs and blah blah blahs. Stick to the main basketball topics guys.
Great podcast about NBA!!
I was looking for the best NBA podcast and it looks like I actually found it! The host Shlomo is very entertaining, and he knows his stuff. In addition to ESPN and others, this is def my favorite NBA pod out there...keep up the good work!!!
