    Boris Diaw on Traversing the Globe, Why the Suns Fell Apart, Guarding LeBron James, and Much More | Real Ones

    The man, the myth, the legend Boris Diaw joins Logan and Raja on a veritable odyssey through his interests and career, starting with his travels around the world on his catamaran and close calls with wildlife on safaris (0:27).

Finally, they get into his time with the Spurs: playing with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Kawhi Leonard (1:00:07), guarding LeBron James in the NBA Finals (1:11:41), and getting his ring in 2014 (1:15:52).

Mailbag!!!!

Yea, I love the mailbag

I’m done with this one

I’m finished. Tired of this podcast. They seem to chase off anyone good. Have no idea how Group Chat is a show, considering how condescending they are and how often they are incorrect (I mean, I’m incorrect all the time but I’m not an “expert”). This show kinda of feel like if NBA PR was a living podcast, as they constantly repeating the same story and towing the line.

Also they started hiring scabs and calling them “independent” contractors. No wonder so many good people are leaving the Ringer

Real ones ruined the ringer

1st they need to separate the shows so I can subscribe to the one I like and not to the ones I dislike.
I enjoyed real ones for a while, I liked hearing the perspective of a former player. However I stopped listening after the hosts started shoving their political agenda down my throat. I understand the urge to use a platform like this to talk about current events and politics but sometimes I want to hear about basketball not the tragedies of the world. They really crossed the line when the hosts made the claim, “all white people are racist”. I didn’t enjoy being called a racist purely on the basis of my own skin color. Seems quite hypocritical to me.
