Alex Kennedy keeps it real

Been following Alex a long time and love how he dives into the NBA and player stories off and on the court. He allows guests to tell their story and share super entertaining stories involving basketball. His insights and opinions are intriguing and love listening to the podcast.

LaMelo Ball

Great job by Alex and Mirin Fader, who discusses her recent Bleacher Report article on the fishbowl existence of the youngest and perhaps most talented of the Ball Brothers. Great article -- and podcast! Highly recommended.
