One of the best NBA podcasts

Sam doesn’t hold back with his opinions which makes this podcast very entertaining. Love the focus on the rookie class and on the roster management of teams. Highly recommended.

Thanks Sam!

Happy to have discovered this pod about 4 months back. It has certainly replaced some other NBA pods on my list of favs. I hope that you keep up a good amount of NBA coverage going forwards!
