On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off by weighing in on the reports that it's now expected that Kyrie Irving will be playing for a new team next season. It's clear at this point that Irving is using several members of the NBA media to push his agenda in an attempt to gain leverage over the Brooklyn Nets, and yet Jason and Rob are at odds about whether or not his plan will actually work. Would the ...

On today's episode, Jason brings you a full wall-to-wall preview of Thursday night's NBA Draft. During the conversation, J-Mac discusses the importance of projecting out what guys can become rather than just looking at what they are now, why he believes top-3 in-order will be Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren and Paolo Banchero, why so much of Jaden Ivey's upside is tied to which team ultimately drafts him, how the addition o...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G do a deep dive into the reports that Kyrie Irving could force his way to the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers or Los Angeles Clippers if the Brooklyn Nets don't offer him the long-term extension he's been seeking. J-Mac's frustrations with Kyrie are well-documented, but even he seems flabbergasted that Irving thinks he still holds this much power. Kyrie has been a disr...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you wall-to-wall analysis of the Golden State Warriors' Game 6 victory to earn the 2022 NBA championship. First, for the Boston Celtics, it's clear that this team needs a real point guard if they want to get over the hump. Superstar-to-be Jayson Tatum had a bad series and reigning Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart got exposed a little, but a lot of their issues ...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by sharing his thoughts on the Dallas Mavericks' acquisition of sharpshooting big man Christian Wood from the Houston Rockets. Wood may not be a household name, but he appears to be a perfect fit alongside Luka Doncic in Dallas. The one thing that the Mavs lacked against the Golden State Warriors was a legitimate option at center, and Wood is more than capable of filling that void....

On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by discussing Dwyane Wade's assertion that the NBA Mount Rushmore should be expanded to five players to include Steph Curry. If the Mount Rushmore is based on a player's impact on the game of basketball, and not necessarily championships or who we determined to be the all-time best players, then Steph certainly has a case. However, are we sure he's more impactful in t...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you wall-to-wall reaction to the Golden State Warriors' Game 5 victory over the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. Steph Curry was uncharacteristically bad, but thanks to Andrew Wiggins, the Dubs are now up 3-2 and on the cusp of another championship. Wiggins was miscast as a leading man in Minnesota for years, and now that he has the freedom of a third or fourth option in G...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by breaking down Steph Curry's 'Michael Jordan' moment in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday night. The Warriors were on the road with their backs against the wall, and Steph put the squad on his back and powered them to victory. It was one of the most iconic Finals performances we've seen in the modern era - period. Later, former NBA point guard and Bleav in 76ers podc...

On today's episode, NBA champion and FOX Sports Radio NBA analyst Eddie House swings by to discuss why Draymond Green has been both the ‘loudest and the worst’ player on the Golden State Warriors through the first three games of the NBA Finals, the pros and cons of benching Green moving forward, how the Boston Celtics have been able to punish Steph Curry on the defensive end even as he dominates on the offensive side, how Jayle...

On today’s episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you wall-to-wall reaction to the Boston Celtics’ Game 3 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Steph Curry suffered a foot injury that could sideline him for Game 4, but even still, the biggest storyline to come out of Wednesday’s action had to be the play of Draymond Green. After a week of injecting himself into social media beefs with Kevin Durant and a war of ...

On today's episode, the King of #NBATwitter, Josiah Johnson, joins Jason for a lengthy conversation in which Josiah discusses the pros and cons of current athletes like Draymond Green and former athletes like Gilbert Arenas having their own media outlets, why he tries to bring a unique and fun perspective to his basketball analysis, why he’d rather be comedic basketball mercenary than to latch himself to any single network or c...

On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by sharing his thoughts on Steph Curry and the absence of 'clutch moments' during his postseason career. Curry is a 2-time NBA MVP, a 3-time NBA champion and easily the greatest shooter in NBA history, and yet this narrative continues to haunt him. However, a thorough analysis of Curry's playoff career shows that the biggest reason why he's never hit a clutch shot...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into the Golden State Warriors' Game 2 win over the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. The Warriors blew the game open in third quarter, and unlike in Game 1, never looked back as they cruised to victory. Even though you've lost home court advantage in the series, if you're a Warriors fan, you still have to be feeling pretty good  about you...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you wall-to-wall reaction to Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The Boston Celtics closed the game on a 40-16 run in the fourth quarter to steal the win (and home court in the series). Jayson Tatum had an off-shooting night for Boston, but with guys like Al Horford and Derrick White burying threes from the outside, the Celtics didn't really need his scoring. Jason and Rob G are spli...

On today's episode, Jason gets the party started with a quick note on a minor transaction in the NBA that could end up paying big dividends. The Brooklyn Nets' decision to differ their first round pick from the Philadelphia 76ers to 2023 is something more folks should be talking about. If the James Harden experiment continues to go awry or if Joel Embiid gets struck by another injury (neither of which would be all that shoc...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you a nuanced conversation on Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors Dynasty. History says it's much more difficult to prolong a dynasty than it is to build one; there's a reason why Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs are the only other team this century to have prolonged levels of success in between championships. The Warriors, like the Spurs, were built around a ...

Our fearless leader is so committed to his craft that he interrupted his family vacation to record a podcast from his bathroom using a pair of AirPods. Seriously.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a way-too-early NBA Finals preview. Now that Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors are officially in, the guys went ahead and assumed that Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics would punch their ticket later tonight. Will the vaunted Celtics defense be able to slow down the high-powered Warriors offense? How much of an impact will injuries have on the series? L...
