Riveting and timely NBA discussion

I want to specifically shout out Dan Feldman and Dane Carbaugh, who are smart, articulate and passionate when it comes to basketball reporting and analysis. Kurt and company are too, but Dan and Dane ("Dan(e)" if you will) specifically have appeared multiple times on our podcast, On the NBA Beat, and we couldn't be more appreciative. Keep up the great work, guys!

Just my 2-cents ,

Please do some research at least.

You “don’t know if the FIBA tournament has an All-Tournament Team”? “Kyrie Irving has never been a good off-the-ball-player”? Do you all actually watch basketball? (See the 2014 FIBA World Cup And Kyrie’s off-ball statistics playing alongside LeBron.) Or is this just an extreme case of anti-Kyrie bias? (Kyrie was MVP of the 2014, FIBA World Cup, by the way, yet you barely even mention him when referencing past Team USA teams or potential 2020 players.)
