Rachel Nichols

Rachel does the white power symbol with her hand at the start of most games. It broke my heart the first time I saw it at the preseason Nets game. It is hard to watch her since then. Every time I see at the beginning of games and she gives her monologue, her right hand holds the mic and the left hand goes to the symbol. It is soul crushing to see. You can go back and check.
It devastated my children and I. That is horrible thing to do to children, to allow it to continue. I hope that she goes and restarts somewhere else so that she can rebuild the trust in her, to come back to do what she seemed liked she wanted to do at some point. It clearly has become something else to her. Let her do that something else away from our sons and daughters.

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.

Used to be great

This used to be a 5star podcast for sure. After the hiatus though cj has been doing the podcasts solo and it’s pretty much a monologue not a podcast at this point. CJs takes arent bad, but it just feels off and isn’t nearly as entertaining. It’s comes off like someone reading their essay to a class or something. If CJ wants to replace Jordan for whatever reason that’s fine, but this current product is not enjoyable.
