In-Depth NBA talk

This is my go to for in-depth NBA talk. Sometimes a tad unpolished but these guys live and breathe the NBA and it comes through on the pod.

Thoughtful Podcast

Sometimes they lose me in the minutia of trades and salary caps; however, they provide the most thoughtful NBA analyses by media.
