Great NBA Podcast

Who cares if he doesn’t mention the Name of the podcast this is just flat out a Great Podcast for those who seek insider NBA Content.

Woefully Underwhelming

If the host can't even bother to say the name of the podcast or go through the standard act of asking for reviews and likes without making a childish scene, you know you've got a bad podcast on your hands.

I've tried listening to this show through several painful iterations over the years, but it's just pathetic. ESPN has some great journalists, and they treat this like a chore and by turn thier listeners with contempt. There's so many high quality, engaging, and interesting basketball podcasts out there. Don't waste your time with this self-serving, whining nonsense.
Windhorst, worst of all, is a hopeless host, who only gets animated when he has a tiresome rant, that usually isn't about the game itself, but rather is to uphold some external value held by the NBA. One wonders if he isn't paid by the league to back up their views and decisions, and he seems to miss the point of the sport entirely. Tim Mcmahon is out of his depth in the 21st century and it's shocking that the mainstream media gives a retrograde bigot like him a voice in the modern world.

Jackie MacMullen is a geniune legend, and she's wasted on a show full of misgoynst, sad-sack men who can't buy a decent opinion. In 2019, this show sounds like a relic from 40 years ago. Don't waste your time; I doubt the "Hoop Collective" would if they didn't have to for a paycheck.

Best insights from Reporters

Love other sights like the Ringer, but I also need reporting and insights. Best pod for my time. Love the interactions. Needs more of Jackie. Less Lakers, more Bonteps (tough but fair)....
