    The music
    Love the show and guests. The music though is so bad during the ads. I see I’m not the only one that feels that way. It’s so annoying. Love the shoe though JJ!

    Ad music
    Ad music is so bad, let’s at least have different ad music throughout not that same twinkle deal they keep using
  • NRB 0827
    Tommy should not read ads. Poor reader and interesting and lacks inspiration

    Awesome pod
    Long time listener— the JR pod was 🔥. My favorite so far.
  • cookcj
    Respect lost
    Watching game 1 Philly v. Brooklyn and it’s borderline unwatchable because of the blatant bias in JJ’s commentary. His Philly groveling is cringe. You broke the golden rule of commentating JJ. You sound like a fanboy.
  • Thingamajigg
    JR Smith conversation was great!
  • Mappyyu
    Comments. In keeping with the spirit
    Absolutely love the show and both RJ and JJ. This episode though is lessened by some really obvious and heavy handed editing. Does leave one wondering what was cut sometimes

    What a great episode should’ve had two parts

    Gotta Love JJ!
    What a great podcast! I love the technical breakdown that JJ uses and the topics he discusses with all of his guests. The only reason it’s not a 5 star is because of Tommy. I find him extremely annoying and irritating whenever he talks. He reminds me of one of your best friends little brother who always wants to be around and be like you but can never be that person no matter how hard he tries. Just painful to hear how hard he struggles. Find a new co host JJ!

    Nerdy basketball podcast
    If you love the NBA, and you love the nerdy lingo. This the podcast. These guys talk shop as if they are sitting in the room with their peers and no one else is listening. This is great for the NBA. It has brought the game even more to life for me.

    Mike Breen episode amazing, have him on more

    Love the Pod - JJ Hire Rip
    Love this show!! The only thing that could make it better is if you hired my friend Rip. Let’s go JJ Hire Rip

    What’s up with Jose’s picture?
    I really like your podcast. I’m a Pelicans fan. ( and a Warriors fan) Enjoyed the show with Jose Alvarado but that is not his picture on the info about the show. Maybe that’s a baseball player with the same name?
  • xachhh
    Show was awesome until having to pay for it. Did jj not make enough as a player and is now having to charge everyday people to listen to a podcast. The insight of getting a former player talking to players and coaches is awesome for fans who really enjoy the NBA. Guess it’s about that bag though…….

    So good
    Really good and the best interview basketball podcast
  • Buttfunforever
    I like this podcast. So far there hasn’t been an episode with a player from my team which is pretty wild. There’s like 5 with Tyrese Halliburton.
  • american_greed

    Best Title Ever
    I love this show. I think JJ is a special talent. That being said, the one thing that has always bothered me about guys like JJ and Draymond is the pedestal they put themselves on for being former players when they know good and well you don't have to be a rocket scientist to tell that someone's playing terrible when they shoot for 10 or when they don't show up. Stephen A Smith has always bothered me, but I have come to respect him so much over the years. At the hour and seven minute mark of the episode where Stephen A Smith responded to the question of the so-called "new media "I honestly became concerned that you might not release another episode. His take was so ruthless, so absolutely real, I almost donated money to the guy. I don't know how I would do that lol. Anyway, I hope JJ will take that into consideration going forward on the show. We get it. You were a player. You are better than 99.9% of us who ever attempted to play basketball. What you need to understand is that your audience isn't dumb. it's not like we've never been sore before. It's not like we've never had to fight through an injury even though it wasn't necessarily to go play on a basketball court. In fact, I would argue it's probably more difficult to deal with where in tear when you are an average Joe because you don't have access to the medical facilities that you guys have access to. I'm still going to listen to the show. I think it's a great show, but I now understand why Stephen A Smith is the king. Obnoxious as he may be.

    Best podcast by any current or former athlete
    If you are looking for a podcast that’ll make you think while still providing plenty of straight sports talk this is the one.
  • Prophacy
    Probably the best…
    Hot take, but I feel this is the best basketball podcast around. JJ not only knows the game from many angles but knows how to facilitate insightful conversation with all his guests. Keep it up, OM3.
  • Frieleaux
    Bill Russell
    I appreciate JJ’s point of view, but encourage him, if he hasn’t already to read Bryant’s piece on Russell. As a black man raised In Oakland whose father attended McClymomdsHS with Bill. I get how powerful Bill Russell was to us. Not only an amazing athlete but a incredible leader and role model well beyond Michael Jordan for me and my family. Also a person who went to school in Boston in 1972 and lived and worked there until 1989, it is hard to describe what it meant to have Bill Russell as an example of how to hold your head up high in the middle of such turmoil. The context in which you work matters. The courage and dignity of people like Russell and others should be explored and understood by JJ. At times JJ has showed great insight into these perspectives. I applaud him for calling out Mad Dog on fans who suggest athletes should just shut up a dribble. I call on him not to diminish athletes from an earlier age, especially Bill Russell. In my mind he is the greatest!!

    The Logo vs the log
    JJ should go learn how to be a plumber.

    Mission: Impossible 2
    Directed by action legend John Woo. It’s intentionally over the top and creative action sequences are signature and part of the fun.
  • MOO$iE 🌍🌎🌏✌️
    maaaaan the Dray episode and the Perk episodes both cut off abruptly. not to mention certain parts of the audio repeat from 15-20 sec before. this is one of the best podcasts in sports. PLZ HIRE A BETTER AUDIO EDITOR
  • NateRob1380
    Great pod overall, and love the collab with Draymond/The Volume and all the guest you have in your show.
  • Raj Fan
    Great show.
  • SFG_Fan
    Previously better
    I loved listening to JJ before Tommy was such a part of the show. Russillo has a good sidekick in Ceruti, Tommy is not one. He’s also developed this air of superiority that rubs me the wrong way.
  • evankasa
    Ask shorter and more varied questions Tommy!
    For the love of all that is holy ask shorter questions tommy. You ask the same long questions every podcast.
  • JAWcuts
    No talent hack
    JJ Is an blabbering boob with no respect for the true legends who came before him, and made it possible for him to make millions of dollars with only one NBA skill. Bob Cousy is a legend and one of the best to ever lace them up. Don’t waste your time with this pod cast!
  • danielaszgd
    I have been listening to this pod since day one and it is the best basketball podcast I have ever heard
  • vhjhhjkjhhhuuggff
    Nice podcast
    Great podcast I have the knowledge of trace of you want to interview someone about traveling.
  • Fartface77
    Great podcast JJ. Legler was interesting. If you wanna know how good he is just ask him.
  • Dan4545897
    A great podcast
    So much better than the fluff filled NBA podcasts that have been available, it is great to hear JJ Redick ask tough, realistic questions and give thoughtful answers.
  • MarkDavisAlexandria
    5 stars
    Hated JJ at Duke. Torching my school for his entire career will do that. But this show is entertaining, informative and gets all the great NBA guests. I kind of hate that I love it. Tommy is a perfect co host as well.
  • nuggetsfan33

    We want dub nation
    This is an amazing podcast but the people want a warriors related person
  • Micah Moseley
    Pat Bev
    Guys, unbelievable pod with Patrick. I am a Twolves season ticket holder and have watched supposed “impact” players come through this system. Patrick impacts everything and everyone. His comment about love him or hate him is spot on. Until he is on your team, it’s hate. Once he hits the floor for us I will love him for the remainder of his career. Also JJ, great pod with Big Cat and PMT.
  • excessivereason
    Needs some modifications
    Please get rid of Tommy. He doesn’t add anything to the show. Keep him behind the scenes.
  • BJJustick
    The definitive NBA interview podcast
    This is the only podcast you need for NBA interviews of some of the most important players of today and yesteryear.
  • cd1169
    Jj come back to Philly
    This is probably the best sports podcast and it’s not close. It’s incredible how it serves as a platform to players to tell their own truth and feel comfortable with hosts that feel like real people instead of talking heads. Jj and Tommy are as authentic as the come and bring the best out of their guests. 5⭐️Would recommend. (Jj sign a 1 year deal and win a title in Philly❤️)
  • MacMee
    5 stars for improvement
    This podcast has come a long way. Perfect example of unbiased and unfiltered honest conversations. Continues to recognize that disagreements can be discussed respectfully. JJ is relatable and does not discount other people’s (opposing) views. I guess TV is different. My favorite so far was the Marcus Smart (flopping) episode. I love Marcus. He epitomizes what a Boston player is. Always hungry. Cutthroat with a heart.
  • AdrianVB_1
    The Best NBA Podcast Out There
    I never been into podcast till I found this podcast. JJ Redick makes the podcast super interesting. My favorite one so far has to be the Desmond Bane one
  • OnlyMemphis
    One of the best basketball podcast
    The Draymond episode is my favorite!!!
  • PeterOtto
    Smooth as his jumper
    JJ’s show is an intriguing podcast where he talks shop with fellow athletes and respected people in other fields, and talks about the important stuff in the world. Their smooth combination of not just talking about sports but how it relates the greater world, is refreshing and interesting. Well done, and worth the listen.
