This show is awesome. But a basketball podcast needs to be more than once a week so much changes day to day especially in the finals. And if they keep this over the starters I’ll never listen again.
Sekou is the best!
This podcast is singlehandedly what keeps me engaged with the NBA- Sekou is such thoughtful host and his guests, especially of the industry writer, local reporter and analyst variety, really allow you to pop the hood on the amazing game that is basketball. What might happen if such-and-such roster gets shaken up? What are the budgetary factors that owners and coaches juggle? What's the atmosphere in a certain stadium like as of late? How do the players a player is surrounded with effect him? What players make a big impact for their team off the court? Which players won't ever be on a highlight reel but do thankless tasks exceptionally well? Raw substance here, nobody trying to be an in-your-face personality to get their big break or anything like that. Sometimes there's something to be desired of the audio quality but I'll take substance over style any day. Keep it going!
I’m guessing this is a bat kid situation, and the dude hosting this is actually ten and dying of cancer. That is the only explanation as to why the NBA would make this show, or let some random fan host it. Very bizarre.
