Chris is a top tier reporter

I always trust Chris’ takes because I knows it’s substantive and backed up by the conversations he’s had with people in the league. Hard to come by a nba podcast like that these days

Top tier podcast

There was the NBA B4, there will be after

I read an article today, and ur comment on Dr J’s answer to ur question on his all time teams was a weak attempt at drama, you asked the man a question, he gives his opinions w/explanation and you follow up with an article in defense of LeBron? I could be wrong here, but other than his rookie season LeBron (had no say, drafted) has been lobbying for teammates, and you stomping for LeBron, Shaq. & The Dream wasn’t on the list either. I’m Ole’ schl. with my basketball philosophy. #NBA over 1 said player, peace I’m out.
