Customer Reviews

Crème de la Crème of Basketball Podcasts

I have to say that Cranjis & Tom knocked it out of the park last season w/this podcast. They haven’t missed a beat in their return this fall. Whether you’re a fan with a budding interest in understanding the game better or a diehard lover of analytics, you will NOT be disappointed here, regardless of your team affiliation (perhaps given the exception of Sac... nevermind).
These guys assign appropriate context and practical understanding of the game of basketball to the data they discuss. I’ve learned something new time and again by just listening.
I couldn’t recommend a podcast any more than this I recommend Taking Charge!

One of the best lakers pods!

Great podcast if you are into analytics. The stats and takes are presented well and thoroughly explained. Also best theme song ever!

Terrible Takes

OMG Terrible Takes. Gave it a few tries, but the takes seem to be trying to sell L.A. fans of national narratives (you know, the guys who don't bother watching the Lakers play but still think their opinion is informed).
