    Audio not up to par with other podcast
    Audio is terrible. You’d think here if lately they’d figure out how to make it a little cleaner and not so staticky, with how much revenue probably comes through here.
  • carlsunder
    If there was a hall of fame for espn shows then I would would vote for this. Nichols is the sender for this five star review. So then keep her on for every show.
  • hdsgbnku
    Lazy excuse for a podcast
    This is not it Podcast. This is a audio from a show. Make a podcast then put it on this format. Straight up lazy. Just an excuse for money
  • Trooper563
    Stick to basketball.
    You guys cover everything but basketball. Let Windy take over. Rachel is so over. Stay away from politics.
  • theodora e.
    Love The Jump, but...
    Love, love, love The Jump except when Chiney is on. She talks too much! Given the choice, most viewers would rather listen to Scottie Pippen, not Chiney, yet she talks thru everyone, even Scottie. Who does that? What happened to Amin? I miss him!
  • Chu791325
    Get rid of Perk
    I loved the jump until Perk started being on. He is so annoying don’t know what’s the point of having him on.
  • Skiman0418
    Okay, but needs less Perk. Anytime he is on I usually end up turning it off.
  • issac bongboy
    Amazing job
    Love the show, so convenient to listen on the go.

    Wonderful Podcast
    LeBron is the goat
  • rabbott624
    Stop having brain windhorst on
    Dude is terrible, everyone else on the show is 100 times better
  • Jesus Thong
    Hey let’s pay a bunch of washed up people who never say anything critical about anything. Scotty pippen is worthless he is a total weak minded idiot who is scared to say anything critical ever. And he is the best one “behind” Rachel nightly and it goes down from there. Ps Wendy is as fat as she is devoid of original interesting takes how did she ever get a job doing this? 100% because she is trans and white.
  • Hubestar
    Awesome show
    I listen daily, but given all the game and play clips shown on TV, I prefer to watch on TV or YouTube. Rachel is so good and fun!
  • C146)37&?
    Inconsistent Uploads
    If you’re going to advertise as putting the show as a podcast.. UPLOAD THEM! It’s frustrating how inconsistent these episodes upload. I understand that the original premise of the show is not for a podcast but none of the less, with the amount of people that listen in, the least you can do is upload right after the episode airs on ESPN
  • jyddo
    I absolutely love the jump. My favorite people ofcourse are Rachel, Brian W, Scottie, Chiney(chineye) but I love em all. Well except Marc Spears! Shout out from Nigeria!
  • klstills
    Great crew! Love watching these guys!
  • Plus+ONE

    Not a podcast
    This is a TV show first. It's not a podcast first. The number of times they are discussing a video or reacting to a video is too high. That makes a bad podcast.
  • JoranvanderSloot
    Boring...and vapid!
    For the most part this show has two segments: 1) promote some player’s product or ‘brand.’In which a player’s business dealings are lauded, usually w just enough mention of philanthropy and one or two b-ball questions. 2) gossip and speculation from a cast of vestigial ex-players or espn b rate beat writers. It seems like researched or considered ideas on actual basketball and team achievement is verboten. Outside of Lowe, Windy, McMullen, Woj, and El Hasin, listening to anyone on this show will undoubtedly make you dumber about basketball/life-in-general. Luckily there are plenty of other places to hear/read the few outliers mentioned above.
  • Around there
    Blend of enthusiasm and information
    This tends to be positive while focusing on quantifiable information. It does not rely on more than 40% of the program on deducing feelings of player and the like.
  • Brad Lynn
    Rachel Nichols is a goddess!! She has been one of the best analyst and personalities in sports for many years and that has never been more evident than on The Jump! She absolutely knocks her monologue out of the park each and every show and isn’t afraid to ask the tough questions to the biggest stars in the game. Best NBA show on any platform.
  • _Princeflav
    The jump
    The show can be better, it is definitely better when Brian Windhorst is on. Too much Nick Friedell on the show, the jump should have more Amin on it. As well as Rachel is okay, Very knowledgeable but she is a bit annoying. Seems like she has exceed Molly Qeriem on the annoyance scale. She needs to stop with these rhetorical questions.
  • SneakerFan337
    Rachel Nichols & all her guests are pretty awesome! Keep it going...

    Best podcast
    Best podcast ever
  • Turkeylou
    Good podcast
    It's a great podcast according to telling the news, but it's not the most interesting pod ever
  • JesseCon
    Great NBA fan podcast
    Love the writing, monologues and energy. I hope Amin al hasan bring in cousin poofy one day as well. For everyone harping about “liberal propaganda”, that represent the nba and the players and your just a dinosaur angry about. A world passing you by. Also, hearing another POV that doesn’t match your own may help. I suffer thru FOX from time to time myself just to catch up on the cray.
  • Zpoiuihstebxhsaq76541234
    Always having issues
    Echoes, sounding like they are in a tunnel, mic feedback...this sounds like 4 people off the street got together with three iPhones recording. Just doesn’t play sometimes and when it does you’ll have to listen to 2000 words from rachel to make a nothing point about lebron being good at basketball.
  • Crash test reviewer
    Liberal propaganda and reverse racism
    Tired of the liberal talking points on this show. Just do basketball! Today’s show they talked about how “white people” are a problem when it comes to fans being rude. How is that OK to say??? If that was any other race being talked about, the show would have to apologize, etc. Big scandal. Then there’s the Trump bashing. Conservatives like basketball too! Done with this show.
  • Cooked Salad
    Great NBA podcast, informative and a lot of fun. Most importantly, the host pronounces all of the players names correctly every time, which we all know is the most important part of a sports show?
  • kevin9271873
    Big Market Biased
    All they talk about are the Lakers
  • bayareakorean
    People trying to talk over each other. No chemistry. Nichols is always trying to insert herself on her own show.
  • Majid Abhari
    Not a podcast
    That background music is just annoying. it doesn’t let listeners to focus on guys who are speaking, i know it is a kind of TV show but for podcast it is just hard to hear what they are saying.
  • sstephenson17
    Best basketball podcast
    Rachel and a revolving cast of ex players and NBA insiders give you all the NBA news worth hearing.
  • We Play Too
    I love this show
    Nobody does NBA drama, SHADE, & intrigue like Rachel Nichols & the rotating players & sports writers on this show! Always well-sourced stories with the best quotes!
  • Expendable Crewman
    Love Rachel Nichols, but not the format
    I enjoy The Jump as a podcast, but wish it were not just an audio version of the tv show. There are often video clips and pictures that do not translate to a podcast and take away from its quality.
  • Richie 0559
    It’s great when they have former players and when they get players wrong the names are tough.
  • Informed Listener2
    12-4-18 The Entire day dedicated to a man who is complicit in the beating of a woman! How TONE DEF can you be?! At this time last year Urban Meyer was activily covering up for a man who REGULARLY BEAT HIS WIFE, & now it's all good & let's celebrate his wins? For shame! If Zach Smith was beating your mother or daughter, how much time would you spend discussing his football accumen? UNSUBSCRIBE!!!
  • sportsanddogs
    Could be good
    It’s a potentially good show. There are some problems, though. I don’t understand how the host doesn’t know how to pronounce players names. If that is my job, I learn pronunciation. It’s very distracting. Fix that and it’s much better.
  • Megazilla
    Better on television
    On the podcast, Rachel Nichols (who is an engaging, insightful writer)and most of the guests have a frenetic and talk-over-each-other quality that grates. It’s too much “noise” for a podcast. And every player, no matter what the track record (hello Dwight Howard!) is just a good guy and no doubt misunderstood. But that’s the price for access to guests.
  • Specsistence
    Feel Good Podcast - Nothing New
    Rachel caters and plays nice to all the tough questions or any type of analysis. Most of the talk and forecasts are off base or just plain common sense. Again, don’t waste your time with this podcast or show.
  • CODust
    Learn to pronounce names!
    It has potential to be a decent podcast, but the host doesn’t pronounce NBA players names right-on an NBA podcast! Shouldn’t those be the one names she pronounces correctly? Too many other options to have to overlook that.
  • NSkogz
    Decent show, bad audio
    I enjoy the takes and breakdown of the show but had to stop listening because of the audio. Constantly sounds like you are in a tunnel. Please fix!!
  • aakashg
    Amazing show bad uploaders
    Awesome show but the people uploading the podcast are lazy. Many episodes such as July 13 2018 have an echo the lazy folks forget to check and fix, since it’s a tv show
  • J Scholl
    Nails on Chalkboard
    Just the audio of the television show. No exclusive content for podcast. The show relies heavily on visual content so this podcast is horrible. Add all this with the painfully loud and annoying voice of Rachel Nichols makes for a horrible experience.
  • Big Baller Brand11
    Not Trash
    I enjoy Espn but when my family decided to cut tv I had to find different ways to get my favorite shows and this podcast works very well
  • samshorthouse
    Rachel doesn’t know how to pronounce anyone’s names. I do like how they bring older legends on the show like T-mac.
  • Ghostbear
    Great show
    I love Rachel she is funny and smart.
  • sf_Jef
    If you love basketball...
    this show will make you hate it. There's never been a more glaring example of an ESPN content-dump show. You can almost hear the sweaty producer yell, "GO OFF-SCRIPT MORE! WE NEED TO FILL AN ENTIRE HALF-HOUR! (pours more whiskey into his glass)". If you care about stats, analysis, or the strategy of basketball, this show isn't for you. If you like watching self-amused blowhards who can't get enough of each other fail at making fun of what players are wearing, you've come to the right place. The only informative aspect of the show is the commercials, which is a great reminder of what not to buy. Life is finite and time only goes in one direction. Therefore, why would you watch/listen to this? In fact, the only thing more pointless than watching this show, is writing a review of it.
  • bobibouche
    Consistently pandering to NBA Twitter
    No breakdowns of X’s & O’s. No analysis. Poor host who panders to social media and constantly giggles for no reason. Chauncey and T-Mac always reveal their personal grudges and have been wrong in their analysis most of the time ( see their reactions to Cavs trading half the squad at trade deadline. It’s basically horrible and annoying if you understand hoop beyond following Joel Embid on Twitter
  • Dean Jaeger
    Some of the stuff here is good. I like that they have former players like T-Mac. The host doesn't seem to know how to pronounce anyone's names. It's hard to take it seriously when people who work with the NBA don't pronounce the names correctly.
