Best NBA podcast around

I think lots if people in the media are unfairly haranguing the Nba and the players for claiming its a joyless season. I recognise the injuries and blowout games but there are still many players who play hard and often. Nba and team staff working hard. Also, fans may not be enjoying this much but media people are underestimating the prospect of exciting playoffs and the fans eventually flowing in to arenas. Fans who are so hungry for live sport experience and players looking forward to showcase their skills!

Great bushwalking podcast

Unfortunately COVID has restricted access that Ben, the host of this podcast, has to go on nature walks. This has resulted in too much NBA discussions. Hopefully he gets back to the main reason people listen to this pod. Leave nothing but footprints.
