Outstanding

Anyone giving this less than 5 stars is clueless! Outstanding basketball podcast!

International ball

Nba talk five stars. Anything internationally is hilarious because realistically there’s not a lot of research other than nba internationals. They thought Australia would be good and never saw Lithuania as a threat. Sums it up. USA aren’t insurmountable and international teams with nba players aren’t necessarily very good. Be better

FIRE BONTEMPS

If what Bontemps was saying held any value, I could up with his nasally, abrasive, peak clipping voice - but damn, this dude just has no idea. Completely derails conversations with his interjections and is just an overall minus for the show. Get rid of this guy ESPN, please.

UPDATE:

The latest podcast on the Lillard trade is an absolute masterclass of Bontemps idiocy. How the hell does this classless fool have a job with ESPN? He has zerrooo awareness, talent or unique insight.
