Used to be my favorite basketball podcast

Loved the front office insights and objectivity from Brian. I have held off writing this review for a week after listening to the pod on my favorite team Lakers being bounced. I prepared myself for the pod, expecting criticism, but the glee from Bontemps and McMahon was just insufferable. I had to stop listening 3x during the first few minutes. (By the way, where was the critical commentary on the Trial Blazers that lost 1-4? Bontemps managed to muster ‘CJ was bad’ and ‘this team has an interesting offseason’!! Oh is that all and did you save all the gleeful punching just for the Lakers?). Even the normally objective Windhurst could not hold back ‘Pelinka had a great 19-20 but not 20-21’!?!? Is this the same guy who said the Lakers were short by 1.5 players in 19-20 and heartily endorsed this past Lakers offseason??? Before you conclude that I am a Lakers fan who cannot take criticism, I have o problem with Zach’s pod after my team lost to the Suns. I wish this pod well in the postseason as I am a die-hard NBA fan, but I have unsubscribed from the pod (for now). I look forward to returning when objectivity returns.
