Wonderful

Alex is smart and funny. This isn't just about basketball, but about memories and growing up and what sports mean to us and what it means to be a fan and why we love what we love. It's so fun but also thought provoking.

Great premise

I really enjoyed the idea behind this show. I do not watch the NBA but have in decades past so I could easily follow the discussions. I was disappointed by some of the guest “fans” lack of knowledge of their teams. Also Alex needs to work on saying “like” less, it became distracting.

Dope sports show that's not really about sports

Amazing stuff across the 35 episodes here, probing why people become fans or stay fans of teams, or really anything. Entertaining and engaging, though I can't support the team he ultimately picks... But listen and see if you agree!
