Too many sponsor name drops
I used to listen to every episode (and I’m a girl I’m not even a typical profile for a fan). Now I dread listening because you never know how many sponsors they’ll plug in the first 10 min. Of course the ads for Cash App at the beginning. And then reviews of the state of the NBA games contain Fan Duel ads. Super annoying, now I just fast forward
I like it a lot
I am liking this podcast very much. This is one of the few podcast where both of the hosts are awesome and interact so well.
The interview and him talking his energy
From a long time listener
This podcast has gone from great content to just force feeding ads into my ear. You get more ads than you do original content. Ads for golf, cash app, and everything in between.
The best old man at the tree episode
To me I think this is one of the best episodes because it’s gust 4 guys laughing and straight up just having fun. I mean what podcast talks Disney Land and talking about there life as kids and them going at each other every secant. just like my brother and me yes this is a kid. Ya my dad doesn’t want me to hear people cussing but it’s weird it’s not like I haven’t heard him cuss also I’m ten my brother is 15. But overall I think it’s a good podcast episode because they just talk about stuff but no NBA player would probably do a podcast.
Terrific interview with Thybulle
Loved what Matisse said about the importance of draftees focusing on good fit with a team versus draft ranking. Matisse is not only a terrific basketball player but an all around nice guy and Renaissance man.

JJ gets the Ro
I don’t expect ballers to be genius's but dang! JJ you got the RO ‘BECAUSE’ you got vaxed and wear a face diaper everywhere. When are fools gonna learn? Why do people then turn around and say... I did all the stuff they said I should do....I still got the RO....but all of you should now make sure you do all the stuff they tell you to do...ughh.

Apparently the rights to Ricky Sanchez pod lives in your head still. I respect the petty
Washed up and the three
Sister still complaining about signing a contract and not getting his way. Like he did something for that organization. Give it a rest you didn’t get your way because them teams obviously didn’t want you and your shows is crap now because you’re too political. If I wanna hear about politics I’ll turn into a political show.Not listen to you be super left wing in your mansion in the Hamptons with no clue about what’s going on with the majority.
Overall great podcast. Kind suggestion- Tommy ask better questions. And more of a variety.
It is crazy that at the start of every game, Rachel Nichols flashes the white power symbol with her left hand, for a long time during her monologue. You can go back and check. She did it from the preseason on. She obviously does not Want to be around “those” people. It devastated my children and I when we saw it. It is awful to do to the young, full of hopes and dreams. It is clear she wants to do something else. Let her do that something else away from our sons and daughters.
This is a great podcast with a nice well-rounded selection of guests. I especially loved the leadership series of interviews… and the drafts are always very entertaining! Anyone giving this a negative review is probably just a JJ Redick hater .. this is objectively a very good podcast.
Keeps Getting Better and Better
The drafts are must-listen. I like when you have non-player guests on too, I get a little tired of straight player talk sometimes.
In depth look
Love this podcast. I don’t really listen to podcasts but I go out of my way to listen to this one. Very refreshing to get a peek into a NBA players life, realizing that they are just normal people with a job.
Great behind the scenes content.
Look forward to listening every week!
Great show guys but I need help searching for this taco spot in Bushwick. Am I spelling this correctly? Need to try this Birria yall are drooling about.
Get over it
Dude, pelicans did the best they could to move you. If you were having a good season they would have been able to get you to the nets. 26.5 million and complaining where you got traded.
Lost all respect for this man
NBA millionaire complaining that the team that massively over paid him didnt supplicate itself to his demands and pay him to go chase rings with other teams. How could he survive the hardship of getting traded to a playoff team? My thoughts and prayers go out to you jj
This podcast works better than Ambien.
JJ Redick is a funny host. His co-host doesn’t add a lot and their inside jokes misfire when they try to explain it to their guests. But fine anyways

Hate Duke, Love JJ
Yeah yeah, I know...it’s nothing new that “everyone hates Duke” but I truly do, lol. It ALMOST stopped me from listening to JJ & Tommy but I’m so glad I did. They are AWESOME and truly some of the best podcasters ever. They are professional, well organized, funny, honest, REAL and just enjoyable to listen to. Lots of basketball, life & just fun stuff. Thanks JJ & Tommy for a great podcast...keep it up!
Bryan Stevenson Interview
Once again, a great interview of a tremendous guest. Insightful questions with thoughtful responses. You asked Bryan to elaborate on his comment that eliminating racism/white supremacy would be liberating. He shared a great reply which may or may not have included James Baldwin. I would commend to you Eddie Glaude’s “Begin Again” pages 48 and 49 (hardback) for more about the notion of liberation mentioned...from James Baldwin. @PhillySkipT5
Good but some politics here and there
questions to consider...
In addition to your excellent conversations about being on the court, I’m curious what it’s like for these young guys to come into instant wealth as an NBA player? What were their first big purchases? How has it changed their off-season? What opportunities do they want their children to have that they might not have had growing up?
Jj should have done this while you were a sizer. Any chance you wanting to come back here I thought you done great here they need someone like you and to be blunt they Phila. Needs a white guy. You got you moved up every year since year one in college.It is not taken lightly in the city or suburbs you have to know this hopefully it can get done what do you feel.Good luck with this project. It’s done professionally ,I have been a fan since the Wilt and Hal Greer years come back let’s get a parade JJ
Love this podcast! The guests, questions, natural flow of conversation - it’s all so incredible! The banter is always great between JJ and Tommy and provides so many laugh out loud moments (especially when Taylor joins - the three of them together = terrific). Really appreciate the honesty and insight from JJ about NBA life and being a professional athlete. Thank you to everyone involved to make this podcast what it is - just gets better and better!
Not there anymore
JJ is a really good interviewer with good insights and questions. Why is Tommy there. He looks and acts like he rode the short bus, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but he doesn’t add anything other than annoyance. Also getting really political, but definitely his right to convey. I can’t take Tommy anymore.
Steven Adam’s episode
“We’re all just slaves to consumerism,” JJ Reddick. What a podcast! Very entertaining and hilarious. Steven was animated and forward and awesome to listen to. That story about the Taiwan egg and all his simple basketball takes showed so much about who he is. Definitely some sleepers in the holiday draft that didn’t come off the board. March madness?! Christmas EVE! Fourth of July...great third round value. -Conor Gausselin
It was good
This was a great podcast for the longest time. But for whatever reason, him and the other guy went super left wing woke. Just wanted a great pod without them talking politics. Not into it. Some people like it. But I stopped listening months and months ago.
LOVE listening to this podcast every day on my work commute. Enjoy learning about player’s mindset, game approach, anecdotes and of course the draft. However, my favorite episode was it even about basketball, it was the the Stacey Abrams episode. That was the first time that I listen to her. Very inspiring! I also like the episode about Grayson Allen and how tough fans were on him and JJ. All episodes are good! Keep up the good work JJ and Tommy.
Pretty awful. Sorry. Truth.
Absolutely love this podcast. JJ and Tommy have done a phenomenal job!
Must have guest
Absolutely love this podcast. I’m an old Duke fan, sorry Tommy. Your must have guest to me is Micheal Jordan, Charles Barkley and Steph Curry. Keep up the great drafts. Sorry again Tommy but most drafts are won by JJ in my opinion.
Kobe is no Hero
Enough with the Kobe revisionist history. He was a good ball player who raped a young girl in Colorado. He was never Jordan. He was a ball hog. Shot too much & played selfishly his entire career. He lived selfishly as well. Let’s not idolize a rapist who cheated on his wife and family. He was a good ball player, but he wasn’t a good man.
OMFG! Dr. J!!!
I had the privilege of seeing the good doctor during his ABA days. He played the Pacers at Indy, where I was stationed at the time. Sat amongst old timey Indiana bsktball fans who started the game grumbling about he was ruining the game with his style of play. Fun watching their jaws collectively drop as Dr. J scorched the Pacers that day. Loved the interview and love the insanely eclectic array of guests you guys haul in.
I. Love. This. Pod... I only discovered it a month or 2 ago, but have been rip roaring all of them backwards... I like to listen to all things NBA basketball like the ringer, mismatch, SBR, Lowe post, woj... what I like about this one is that although much of the content on this podcast is basketball related, so much more great perspective comes out and there is relatability to other fields and life in general... it’s similar to the How I Built This pod in this way... the leadership series is outstanding and I look forward to more of those... I listen while I’m working, doing housework, on a run, or just running errands... I’d be curious how often or if you think about life after basketball and what sort of plan you see yourself potentially following in the immediate years after retirement... I’d also be curious what it’s like to be a dad playing out of one city, family in another and frequently being on the road... thanks again for the great content and perspective... looking forward to the next draft
Love the podcast
Bring on Lamelo Ball
Stole All Fantasy Everything’s idea
JJ Redick should go do something else because he’s a famous rich athlete.

Best basketball podcast!
Love the information, bball talk, and little anecdotes around the league between guys. I think Jeremy Lin’s story would be a good topic for discussion, bring him on!

Best Podcast from an NBA player
Don’t get me wrong, love the knuckleheads… all the smoke is alright. But JJ Redick does a fantastic job making the interview a natural conversation. PLEASE PLEASE get Monta Ellis on the show. My favorite player of all time, and you guys were teammates after he got traded from GSW. Would love to hear from both of you guys, especially since he’s been out of the spotlight for years now.
Awesome podcast keep up the great work love the insight of the players. Would love to hear about and from Aqua Man aka Steven Adams.
Love this podcast! Literally only listen to 3 podcast which is This one , R2C2 with CC Sebathia and Ry Rukes & Josh Hart podcast! Thank you for taking your time to do this for us fans!
Great pod, unreal insight.
Very high quality pod created by JJ and Tommy. The guests are next level and the best part about the conversations are that you feel like you are in the room with them while they are talking with each guest. Cheers fellas.
Can you do a month where you interview all veterans. And start off with Larry Johnson!! I love hearing the old guys tell stories..
