    Gordon Hayward may want to opt out because $34 mil is a fake number, with Ryan Bernadoni (Part 1)

    Gordon Hayward is going to make a lot of money next year if he opts in, but it won't be $34 million, and he may make more by opting out. Ryan Bernadoni joins the show to explain how the salaries are really calculated, and why "escrow" might take a monster chunk out what he actually makes.

Consistent quality

Been listening for a few years now, John always delivers even now when it’s just him. Enjoy the episodes with Tom Westerholm tremendously as well. Greetings from a Belgian living in Finland

Great stuff

Great and fun show about the best basketball team on the planet. Jay seems to be really bad at the technical stuff (-> occasionally bad sound quality) but I don't mind that too much. Jam is a good addition to the original duo. Absolutely my favourite Celtics pod, have listened every single episode and consider myself as the number one Rainin' J's fan in Finland.
