AllstarBurrito ,

Great Kings insight, atrocious movie recommendations

Love hearing the guys talk about the Kings. Brenden, don’t worry about not watching these movies. 90% are trash

Jaime Moncada ,

Would be 5 stars

Love the pod and the content all three of you produce on all platforms. Only reason this isn’t 5 stars is because pods are sometimes uploaded a few hours before a game, which discourages me to go back and listen to an episode if I don’t listen to it prior to the game (info is sorta outdated). None the less, great pod. Keep up the great work. Go Kings!

James you were right!

Mr Ham, I had the privilege of making your acquaintance at Moonraker the brewery about a month ago. The kings were either 0-4 or 1-4 at the time and I told you how disappointed I was, that I was actually anticipating a good team this season and felt totally let down. You responded by stating that you weren’t worried and you thought they’d be ok. I walked away stoked I was able to meet you, but fairly certain I’d continue to be disappointed by the Kings. Yet here we are!! I’ll never question your opinion when it comes to the teams current disposition again. I love the podcast and this Kings team, I finally made it to a game last night against the Pacers. The stadium is electrifying and it brings me back to being twelve in 2002. I enjoyed meeting you James and thank you for being nice to myself and Carly. Go Kings!!!
