Thanks a lot.
Unlike the childish NBA shows out there, this is a brilliant, in-depth, journalism. Opinion based on real numbers and quality interviews. I love hearing it, and it helped me form opinions of my own. I can only wish it was a daily show :)
This is an AMAZING podcast. Love it. Really insightful and interesting. Keep up the great work Zach. Appreciate it
