excellent podcast for basketball nerds -- no hot takes, just data-driven analysis by two guys who really know their hoops. lakers podcast that isn’t just sunshine-pumping. thanks guys!

A thoroughly tedious 45 minutes

Bulls fan with a lot of time to kill on a recent road trip and this was in the suggestions. An abysmal product. Negative charisma from both hosts, though it never stops them from trying. Commentary is all refried roasts and takes that weren’t insightful when you first read them on Twitter 3 days ago. Zero analysis besides the implied sophistication of some invented formulas and metrics they reference to sell you on their “subscription data services”. Avoid even if desperate.
