I accidentallyStumbled onto this podcast in 2021 with the lead up to the 2021 NBA draft one of the best accident I ever made lol I’ve been hooked on this podcast ever since in fact these guys Joel Moran River Brown Andrew Velez have added to my desire to do podcasting I love the well thought out takes Joel Moran in particular is a student of the game of basketball and football I’d argue all these brothers are better at breaking the game and the player’s strength/weaknesses better than a lot of your National (Repetitive Hyperbolic) Analyst on Fox & ESPN Pound for pound these brothers have the best sports podcast out n twice a week they are kicking a** Thank you brothers for a phenomenal podcast each n every week You guys are helping so many people with amazing n necessary sports commentary Salute to you my fellow New Jerseyans

Just another sports podcast

Every podcast as their own special “thing” that gives its identity. Pick a side is a good podcast. Just don’t see the “thing” that could separate it from other podcasts. Their pretty funny though
