One Of My Favorite BBall Podcasts

Really enjoy when they go off-topic. Chris and Ben are equally informative, but more importantly very entertaining to listen to. Plus, they’re Knicks’ fans.

I learn something new every episode

What I love, first and foremost, is the mix of content. The drafts teach me NBA history in a fun way. The general discussion of the nba helps me keep up with the current NBA. The series on Iverson is incredible and I learned a lot about Iverson and his impact on basketball.

Chris and his guests also have a way of speaking that is easy to understand while still taking advantage of their deep, excessive, knowledge of all things NBA. Even a casual NBA fan like me can follow along when they dive deep into the dark corners of the NBA.
