Stuff like: who the best or worst broadcasting teams are / which podcasts are worth checking out / which nbatv shows are good / how bad inside the nba is / etc.

listening to the Kyrie episode of JJ Redick's podcast and kyrie is a weirdo. anyway in a snippet of it JJ said the rim on one side of the court (at the England arena) was crooked. 76ers shot well in the first half and Boston in the 2nd half. idk thought that was interesting

Spottie, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:02 (five years ago) link

the minn broadcast team is good like everyone says. i actually learn stuff from those guys.

call all destroyer, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:04 (five years ago) link

yeah i like them. i like the pdx team as well.

Spottie, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:19 (five years ago) link

So my top pods are:

listen to every one p much
Lowe Post
Woj Pod
House of Strauss – New pod with Ethan Strauss and his wife Allie (some hoops but kind of all over the place)
JJ Redick
bill simmons when he has hoops talk
warriors plus/minus with tim kawakami and marcus thompson

listen to some but not all
The Ringer NBA show — with Network and those peeps
Talk Hoops with Zach Harper
Basketball Friends — Haberstroh and other people
Open Floor: SI's NBA Show — Ben Golliver & Andrew Sharp
The Hoop Collective — all kind of espn writers
RealGM Radio — Danny Leroux pod

Spottie, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:36 (five years ago) link

i love the TBF guys. THC is a pretty pale imitation at this point.

plz post juicy nuggs from podcasts in here plz thanks in advance

actually we require that you listen to the full pods to be able to comment itt

Spottie, Friday, 12 January 2018 23:01 (five years ago) link

rude!

lag∞n, Friday, 12 January 2018 23:09 (five years ago) link

i love the basketball jones/the starters weekly pod, but I could understand if it is way too silly for some. Road trippin is occasionally entertaining. The Ringer's NBA pods should be much better than they are. Give Shea Serrano a podcast, simmons!

while my dirk gently weeps (symsymsym), Saturday, 13 January 2018 04:50 (five years ago) link

I fully admit to watching the starters daily nba tv show most days please do not ban me

Clay, Saturday, 13 January 2018 05:13 (five years ago) link

lol those guys are living the life props to them for turning hoops fandom into a career. havent really listened to them since the TBJ days, I follow them all on twitter tho.

Spottie, Saturday, 13 January 2018 05:39 (five years ago) link

i can only (sporadically) get into the tv show around all-star game and playoffs, but yeah they are inspirations

while my dirk gently weeps (symsymsym), Saturday, 13 January 2018 05:56 (five years ago) link

I mostly like the constant dunking on leigh ellis and his constant Dad ways

Clay, Saturday, 13 January 2018 06:04 (five years ago) link

bill simmons on Lowe's pod just released, im sure to discuss the Rox/Clips dramz

Spottie, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 19:08 (five years ago) link

it was p good. but they are mostly talking midseason awards or w/e. think lowe is going on simmons' pod tomorrow.

anyone watch the rachel nichols show the jump?

Spottie, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 20:33 (five years ago) link

i'd like to but it's on at a time where i am never watching tv

my fav hoops pod rn is brian windhorst's espn pod w/ the other espn basketball ppl. it's basically the old truehoop podcast but w/ all good/smart writers and no "personalities" like amin or the more talk radio-ish guys that used to be on the truehoop pods. windhorst is kind of a garbage writer but as a moderator of conversation he's good bcuz he is very very knowledgeable about the league.

J0rdan S., Sunday, 17 March 2019 20:18 (three years ago) link

i listen to it cause brian is good but i actually hate the combinations of guests who rarely seem to have any chemistry. other than bontemps whose grumpiness i enjoy they can be a drag.

call all destroyer, Sunday, 17 March 2019 21:06 (three years ago) link

it's a little worse now bcuz jackie macmullan is out... sometimes it's a weird crew. kirk goldsberry in partic is not very good.

Basketball code reached its apex in conversation during last year’s playoff series. Brooks also clubbed Gary Payton II with a flagrant 2 call, which led to the Warriors role player fracturing his elbow. Then, the physicality – and the debates of the intentions – heightened when Jordan Poole pulled Morant’s knee for a loose ball to deem him out for the playoff series.
