Game-changing Podcast for an Evolving Sport

I stumbled upon this podcast about two years ago because I somehow already followed Andy on Twitter (I’ve waited this long to review, so I would have a sufficient sample size and totally not because I’m just lazy). At the time, I only kept up with basketball lightly and knew very little about non-stars. This podcast has evolved my knowledge of the league exponentially, and now, I watch multiple games nightly while I’m in college. I normally listen to the latest Hardwood Knocks before getting to my other pods on my way to and from school on the weekends, so it’s safe to say that it’s my favorite pod. I love that Andy and Dan have a great sense of humor about things and always try to take context (such as role, injuries, and systematic fit) into useful analytical tools as any genuine statistician should. Thank you to Andy and Dan for helping make college more bearable!

The Perfectly Balanced NBA Pod

This podcast is fantastic. It is the perfect mix of analytics, nba player and team biases ( Andy: Utah, Dan: any small ball lineup), salary knowledge, and great personalities. A must listen.

PS, Andy’s top 50 article is excellent, I disagree with some of the order, but that is my subjective bias vs. what is clearly a ton of research and stats to back up arguments

Love the pod! One question!

Is there any way Dan can pump up the volume on his mic to match Andy's? Love the pod, guys!
