    Logan and Raja have given you Darius Miles and Boris Diaw. They’ve given you The Kid Mero. So listen to this lovely basketball catch-up between two good friends as you pat your full belly.

Fantastic podcast

I just came here to say that Joe Ingles does NOT look like an NBA player

Great, but....

... Kevin O’Connor is intolerable. Takes forever to get to the point. Constructing controversial arguments, flip-flops and laughs akwardly when his co-hosts puts him on the spot. Everytime he’s on one of these pods, stear well clear. He’s getting crushed regularly by the excellent Chris Vernon on “The mismatch”.

Other that a solid podcast. Chris Vernon is gold and Jonathan Tjarks is very good too.

Favorite hoops podcast out there

I’m from Denmark and a huge nba fan. About a year ago I discovered how many great basketball podcasts are out there and the Ringers NBA show quickly moved to the top of the list, a must listen immediately when it comes out.
I especially love what the Ringer is doing this season with multiple hosts having sort of a segment show within the NBA show. So much good stuff to listen to. I love it.
I’m so grateful for what you’re doing - keep it the great work
