Awesome sports podcast

This is a great podcast and super stoked with the frequency of podcasts releases. Alway a great insight into the NBA from a players point of view. Cool guests and love the story’s that are told.

Question/mailbag if you could be a professional athlete in any other sport what would it be and why? Ie pay, lifestyle, skill level etc.

I’m a medium and shoes size US 9.5 if you have any kicks laying around 😉 Insta Jacksonsmithpt

Great podcast

Great insight into the NBA.
Would love to hear a wine/Pinot themed episode or a conversation with an NBA ref - would be interested to hear how their interpretation differs from the players and the casual fan.
Keep up the awesome pod. Size medium

My favourite podcast

Tommy and JJ do an amazing job with this pod and I look forward to listening to the episodes each week. Would be awesome if Booker jumped on the pod and maybe somebody from the film industry since you guys are such big movie fans.
