Could watch it all the time.

CJ being known as a basketball player is really like.. it brings attention to you and with being around the coaches, the playbooks, around the game, playing it. It’s entertaining and talking about it from your prospective point of view it’s crazy it brings knowledge to others and it’s what the media is lacking lately. Love the Podcast.
