Great premise

I really enjoyed the idea behind this show. I do not watch the NBA but have in decades past so I could easily follow the discussions. I was disappointed by some of the guest “fans” lack of knowledge of their teams. Also Alex needs to work on saying “like” less, it became distracting.

Hate sports, love this show!

Thank you to all thirty five of my guests on the show — really, truly, appreciate you taking the time to talk with me about basketball for my silly podcast.

A huge thanks to Linda Holmes. I really can’t say enough about Linda and her support for me and this show, so I’ll just say: She’s the best, and if you don’t know it, now you do.
