Best basketball podcast!

This podcast is fire! Entertaining and informative. Hosts have very good on-air chemistry.

One of the best

I grew up loving sports- for a long time it's felt like a full time drop to avoid screaming heads yelling about everything but the game. It's great to listen to Open Run and remember why we talk about sports with our friends and families in the first place. Open Run is for the children.

ADHD Basketball Podcast

If you don't particularly like basketball, and enjoy listening to two guys with a severe case of ADHD... this is the podcast for you! I'm a certified basketball junky and subscribe to literally any basketball podcast that is even marginally listenable, this one is is going back into the podcast store. The 2 stars is for the sound quality and obvious professional production. If they get a good guest interview, I'll go track that down to just hear the guest. I just can't listen to these two guys.

In case anyone is actually reading these reviews as a way to decide whether you will like this podcast... I'm the guy who gets excited for the Dunc'd on podcast releases their 3 hour summer league prospect podcast, and get even more excited when I find out that was only part 1 of 2 episodes on the prospect breakdowns.

If you are into basketball minutiae, and like to take deep dives into the game, this ain't for you. If you like the idea of basketball, but are more interested in sprawling and unfocused thoughts of two guys who are obsessed with how Barkevious Mingo and his brother Hughtavious got their names... you came to the right place!
