Great podcast

Very good pod.
Good content, though too many awards pods.
Mort is very hard to listen too with his hot takes and always putting the leagues decisions into question.
Very repetitif.

Love this show, but…

I love, LOVE this show, but if they’re going to have alt/far-right (local) advertising I’ll drop a 1 out of 5 until they pull the political adverts. It does not belong, especially when speaking about a black league then promoting anti-black advertisements. Go back to non-political ads, please; screen advertisers better.

MPJ

Listen and enjoy the show more times than not. Morten’s MPJ takes are borderline scandalous ... 2nd time he’s had a weird take on him. I understand he’s viewed as an anti-vaxxer and that rubs ppl the wrong way but judge the dude on his basketball merit and progress he’s made in last 15-20 games. Plain ridiculous.
