Jason’s ability to be the the sorta sympathetic counter to Colin’s takesman is remarkable. I appreciate the soft landing he provides even when the ultimate answer he agrees with is “this guy ain’t it” haha-it’s a very refreshing thing in this space of outrage and yelling; he’s almost reluctant to really go in on anyone and I like that a lot. Compassion wow! Not everything needs to be nick and stephen a and max and everyone else just shouting. Reminds me of lowe but more from a guy who hoops. Good stuff
@GONG GAMING perk used to hoop too
I really like their back and forth take. Specially when they talk about Luka on who will really fit with his attitude inside the court.
Cause he used to hoop
That’s exactly why i watch Jason more than anyone else
It’s a very good back and forth. Colin is good at giving a big picture, and he’s not afraid to just say, “these guys don’t have it, this might be a bloodbath.” But Jason provides a path for both sides to get the upper hand.
Jason is the best addition to the volume, instant watch when he posts
@EZgame the teams y’all been playing was tanking 🤡 Utah ,rockets
@Dominick Toran y’all said we won’t make the play in even ; we’d be 6 seed over gsw if kings didn’t tank for gsw instead of lakers
Dude just knows his stuff it’s refreshing
Facts he the only person I watch
That was a great 40 minutes right there! Colin always makes the shows great 💯
I’m not even the biggest basketball guy, but Jason is awesome. You can tell he watches all three time and loves it
@Zzz Vain we weren’t talking about who won or didn’t win anything, we were talking about this year and this year’s playoffs, that’s all
@Hajvan What do you mean biased? They just be happy with their favorite team do something.
he literally said kd hasnt been in an ideal situation for most of his career but that he’s a winner, and made excuses for his failures in okc and brooklyn when those teams are the majority of his career ????
Love the whole conversation! Cheers Colin and Jason for the great insight
GP2 was the most underrated acquisition at the trade deadline. To be able to throw him at Fox and Morant is going to be huge.
@Sam Clark ur funny
Jeez Gen Z is like a bunch of emotionally starved children, its like they literally have never had a Dad tell them “Good Job” I had no idea there would 12,000 single mother raised kids showing up to toss the ball in the Backyard
Its literally like an Orphanage here.
@Sam Clark Warriors have so many guys to throw at Fox: GP2, Chenzo, Wiggs, Klay, Draymond even. Fox gonna need for screens to get Steph or (even better) Poole on him.
@Name Less all the lakers needed was a center it’s over now
@LOWKEY even w/25 they can have bad games- not lead their team, get the “others” involved, get exploited on D….I watched Steph do it 1/4 the season
28:00 The talk on Luka potentially ending up like a Carmelo is facts
He’s better than Carmelo. James Harden is a better comparison.
He’s a great player, but I can also see him eating his way out the league as he ages. He needs to get his diet right. That’s why he seems to struggle on defense
@Ali Boombaye he’s perfect with the clippers
@Ali Boombaye I would really like him to have a fair shot of 2 more years with this team, constructed around him better(Good D, versatile role players, 2nd legit star who match with his game…) before wanting him to leave.
But since you asked i would like Giannis or AD(if he wasn’t injured that much)
@Will N If he leaves Dallas, where is the best place to land for him? I like him in Milwaukee with Giannis IMO
I really like the interplay between these two. Colin brings a higher level, talk show talking points and Jason brings the deeper basketball understanding. Jason comes just short of saying “Colin, you don’t really know what you’re talking about let me clarify that for you” 😂
Wow this was great. More of you two talking hoops please!
So happy the warriors got the 6th seed! What a crazy season
