Fantastic

I am always looking for more insight into European Basketball and to have one of the more experienced former players bring on star guests is super appreciated.

We need more of theses!!!!

Great Pod!!! Joe takes ya into the lives of Euroleague players and coaches that in America aren’t usually covered. Would love to hear more about the season going on in the EL, but I guess Joe has to be impartial being a announcer for them.
