Love it

I’ve listened for years and now finally writing a review. These guys are great. They often are more basketball-focused and not statistics focused. They’ve got this really dry humor depending on the hosts that’s really entertaining. It’s a great casual listen, many of the non-Friday podcasts are listenable even if you’re only looking for NBA and not fantasy content.

Fantasy-less Fantasy BBall Pod

Fantasys mentioned about every other episode. Hosts are definitely not playing much fantasy bball based on their drafts. Al horford isnt “good value” in rd8. Saying you didnt know who was available in your draft probably isnt a good look.Since it’s only a weekly pod, most of the season long advice like waiver pickup suggestions are too late to matter. Put it in a different category or call it a general nba pod. There’s usable NBA knowledge you can apply generally.

Not a Fantasy BBall Podcast

The guys are mostly good, they know their stuff, but this isn’t really a fantasy basketball podcast. So much air time is spent on stuff like record over/unders, random (+/-) stats, odds and picks for player awards and talk of betting. It’s a good basketball podcast, but they really don’t do that much around actual fantasy, it’s more tangentially related to fantasy.
