Remembering Coach John Thompson Jr. from the bubble with former Georgetown Hoya Jeff Green

After the discussion the Rockets veteran gets into how life has been in the bubble for him and what it has been like to play in Houston's small ball system.
Best Wizards Podcast
Love the whole crew. My favorite wizards podcast to listen to on my drive to work.
Chase and Chris are a talented and hard-working duo. They break down the Wizards similar to how Wall breaks ankles and Beal breaks nets. If you're a Wizards fan or simply curious about this up-and-coming Eastern elite squad, hopefully you're listening to them. Chase is a terrific interviewer! Love the guests he brings on too. Turning the tables a little, our podcast, On the NBA Beat, had the pleasure of bringing Chase on our show last postseason to discuss Wizards-Celtics, and he was excellent. No surprise there
I just can’t take the current cast. They try to hard to be cool and funny. I came to the podcast for Wizards information not a bad comedy show.
