Also, how the hell does Gregg Popovich use Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday, and Devin Booker? And this team is somehow reminiscent of the 2020-21 Celtics

Great podcast

The Episode was amazing. Getting back to normalcy will take a little time adjusting but I’m glad it’s coming back!

Stop

Stop talking about covid period

Saratheweatherguru ,

Expert analysis like Marcus Smart should shoot more 3 pointers.

Sound advice to all below average league shooters if they want to hurt their team more but make their numbers look better. Can’t wait until the next podcast.
