As good as it gets
The Jones is the best podcast out there if you're a hoops fan
A really great show for lovers of Basketball. I find it hard to keep up with all the goings on in the NBA considering I live in Australia and the games are aired around midday. Therefore this is a perfect podcast for each morning to summarise the happenings of the day before. Don't know where I'd be without them. Keep up the good work!
