Mixture of Comedy and Basketball
I've been following these guys since their days covering the Lakers at the LA Times. This podcast mixes Lakers news with some funny commentary. Normally, I hate when people veer off topics, but these guys (who definitely have a comedy sensibility I relate to) are enjoyable to listen to. It's probably not for everyone, but it's a great Lakers-related podcast.
Rare combination: great commentators and fans
I've been following these guys all over the LA media to ESPN and now to what I presume is their private podcast. They're by far the best Lakers podcasters around. For guys as new media savvy as they I'm surprised they don't promote themselves more. It's surprising how many times I've read people ask if they're still around. Well, they are -- and they're great.
Great to have them back!
Longtime fan, from the LA times days... These guys are terrific, and this is my favorite podcast alongside The BS Report. Welcome back, I've missed the Nic Cage jokes!
