Starting to get on my nerves

Always well-informed discussions that consider various angles and give an interesting outlook on the league. But my god the constant bickering and interrupting is no longer charming, I feel like every three episodes there’s a condescending, borderline screaming match between Windy and one of the Tim’s. Bontemps especially is so condescending and Brian just can’t help but get angry and passive aggressively rant the same points about Joel Embiid every couple pods. Zach Lowe is a much more enjoyable listen. The Hoop Collective is turning into like divorced parents who spend Christmas together and hate each other and won’t let each other speak.

Strange pod

As well informed and knowledgeable as the Brian and the other contributors are, at times I wonder if these guys actually like the sport they cover. The constant passive aggressive comments and overall negative vibe really takes away from the actual content that’s being offered.

P.s. for the love of all that is holy, do NOT bring on Marcus j spears anymore. There is no podcaster on the planet with a more boring and monotone voice. Y’all know it’s supposed to be an enjoyable listening experience right???????
