    Inside the NBA's (ongoing?) tanking era

    Jake Fischer, Bleacher Report NBA writer, joins the show to talk about his new book Built To Lose: How the NBA's Tanking Era Changed The NBA forever. Jake explains why he centered his reporting on six teams (76ers, Celtics, Lakers, Suns, Magic, Kings), shares some new reporting on some of the NBA's biggest draft and free agency decisions from 2013 to 2015 (for example, why Tim Frazier was instrumental in bringing Joel Embiid to Philly), and examines the larger impact of this time in NBA history. The book comes out on May 4.

One of the smartest basketball podcasts out there

An excellent, fun, and intelligent nba podcast. It’s hard to add value when there are a million nba podcasts discussing the same stories, but this show does a great job at going beyond the easy topics and offering real insight and analysis.

OG listener

So glad to have this team back doing this. Was bummed when both SB NBA casts went away.
Excited to have their perspectives back.
