Thank you for helping me become a “Pinot guy”

I’ve been a long time appreciator of CJ’s jumper and his quick wit on/off the court. This podcast has been gold so far; from the J Cole influence early on to the Durant interview, to the reactions/distractions to the ebbs and flows of an NBA season, this podcast has been a romp! The best part of it is the Wine segments however, it classes the pod up a lot and it helped me to go from a Pabst Blue Ribbon guy to a Pinot guy. Thank you CJ.

Great Blazers/NBA recap podcast

CJ speaks so eloquently and it’s refreshing to hear his take not only on the blazers but the NBA as a whole. Highly recommend this podcast if you love basketball and follow the NBA as a whole in general (not just blazers). Very insightful thoughts from a top player who has seen it all. Thanks CJ! ❤️

Dat new guy over der ,

Edit plz

Love the show, but it’s getting almost unlistenable now with the lip licking, smacking and deep inhales between each thought.
