No Stephen A. After watching him box, I have no inclination to hear his take on anything athletic.

No mention of the Suns Pelicans series in any of the episode synopses so far suggesting the series is of no interest as a feature is shocking. Significant anti Suns bias but also against a series and Pelicans team that is set to be a major upset. Not to mention an emerging team under Green and last years finalists who were a spectacular break through story with a team record breaking win record and historically elite winning record this season

Hopefully they will change this up a little for next season. Hard to get over Raja dislike, but it is happening. Turning it into an all Lakers pod may be better.

seerat sothi is brutal and should not be on NBA basketball podcasts. the continually contradicts herself in the same sentence and her takes make no sense. I listen to most of the ringer podcasts and they are for most part excellent. Her knowledge and takes do a dis-service to the ringer.
