Sweet Lance

I’ve heard Tom and Amin on other podcasts but I just now discovered THIS. Idk I feel like I have a knack for finding things that annoy me about podcasters but there’s nothing here I don’t enjoy. The chemistry is there, the analysis and stories are insightful, and sweet lance had me lolling alone in my car. Keep it goin dudes, love it.

Excellent addition

Having Amin as a regular makes this a must-listen podcast. An underutilized basketball analyst, Amin has a unique vantage point on the league from his years as a mid-level executive. It afforded him the opportunity to interface with all facets of the game from x and o stuff to front-office intrigue. A good podcast is about the environment you create and Tom jumps ahead of the game by creating one of the most informed and colloquial basketball listens out there.

The January 5, 2022 episode was one of the most cogent, insightful podcasts on a sports topic I’ve ever heard. Listening to two intelligent and hilarious people explore the reason why we are seeing more triple doubles reminded me why I love basketball as sport and spectacle but why this show is a must-listen every week.

Stat in yo FACE!

Yo, Tom. Get Stitches as a guest? Just an idea… Otherwise, love the cast! Amin’s the greatest, btw.
