Definitely in the top 5 of great nba podcasts, to me (and I listen to just about all of them)I appreciate the chemistry between the two, it's great coverage of what's currently happening in the nba, with unique perspectives too. Keep up the great work guys.
Despite your Meyers Leonard preseason ranking
Fun hosts, their comfort level and conversational style is great. Not too self serious show, a must for me. Great having what the hosts want to talk about mixed in with the basketball. Very insightful, GREAT preseason preview shows with good writers. Great production from whoever is producing. Genuine NBA fans with insightful analysis. Dope intro music, never change it.
Critiques: sometimes too much Sacto analysis (insightful from a Sacramento beat writer but a little much at times). Can drag on a bit with the non basketball, probably better served more sparsed throughout when there's sometimes 12 minutes of no basketball to start. I'd personally like some fantasy tossed in here or there, though I like real basketball as the focus of the show.
It's da ish. Great fake commercials. Good NBA talk, good dudes.
