NBA

Why didn't you just say that the players wanted to be in Vegas bc they wanted prostitutes?! You are a such a sycophant for the man...

A great listen!

Jimmy is a stronger interviewer and it’s great to hear analysis on the behind the scenes stuff!

Good but....

This is an excellent podcast except when Jimmy feels compelled to go off on his Elitest East Coast Liberal views regarding politics and current events. If I want that ansysis I’ll go listen to someone who actually has knowledge in that area. Only he could ruin an interview with the great Bob Ley.
