Fantastic discussion about NBA topics 🗣

The league has 30 teams, of which more than half are very intriguing. Yet every podcast you do is about the Lakers, or mayyybe the Nets! Pathetic. Still riding Lebron’s coattails to get views. This is why Zach Lowe will always be your daddy
enough Lakers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/21
Is this a league wide podcast or Lakers podcast? Mix it up the season hasn’t even started and 3 of your last 4 podcasts are Lakers focused
hall&oates south shore via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/21
Still mostly great, arguably one of the best if not the best. All of the shows are strong, but the low rating is because while MacMahon has really improved his ability to not interrupt, and has always offered great insights, Bontemps conceding know it all rants, bad enough on their own, are...Read full review »

It became obvious after following Brian W ( Windy as Perk likes to call him and please don’t ever have Perk on) is that he and Zach Lowe and Mark Spear and others are really investigative journalists digging deep on issues like contract posturing, profiling player talent and weaknesses, and...Read full review »

Decent podcast last couple years but it will be a waste of time to listen to if there is an obsession with players not wanting the vaccine. I can turn on mainstream media for that
Saladbar30 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/21
The October 5th episode could be summarized as “nothing to report”.
t0mwilson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/21
They get stupid with contract minutiae, especially with Bontemps trying to impress with all the possible scenarios. Dios! And Spears sounds like he just woke up. Not the sharpest tool. Talk games. Without them perhaps a break would be best.
PatrickLeaver via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/21
Long time listener. The two Tim’s are great, but we know who the star is. After Jackie Mac started to fade away, I was hesitant about the direction the pod was going, but MacMahon and his light hearted digs are really a saving grace. Great, well-rounded ensemble to balance out Bontemps’...Read full review »

I love Windy, he has strong opinions and states them and he knows the inner workings of the league better than just everyone. MacMahon is just a cool guy. Then Bontemps rounds them out, great 3-man podcast game. Marc Spears is a bit Low Energy so I'm not as much of a fan of him. But compared...Read full review »

Brian is obviously well connected in the NBA and he and his colleagues really shine breaking down what’s going in the League. The show is at its best discussing personnel. Tim Bontemps and Banned McMahon are my favorites of the guests.
UMass Band via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/21
What a waste of a listen. Stop talking about Covid and vaccines! Talk about basketball. Mark Spears needs to be muted.
Abmunson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/21
This is the best three-person show in basketball podcasting. Bontemps makes me an every-week listener, because he forces McMahon and Windhorst to actually react to the film-room/analytics takes, and not get lost in “the discourse” as it gradually removes itself from the actual play. McMahon is...Read full review »

Remove bontemps from the cast and you’ll be at least four stars

Want more Tim on Tim banter
Mdub1002 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/06/21
Frustrates me that Brian doesn’t let his guests talk much. He had Kevin Pelton on with Marc Spears, both really smart articulate guys, and Pelton barely could get in a word in . I appreciate Brian’s takes, but let your invited guests share their perspective too. That would feel more like a...Read full review »
babarello40 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/21
Great podcast, but if Marc Spears comes on it’s going to be 95% him talking, 5% of Brian and the other guest. On the episode that came out today Kevin Pelton said 2 sentences in over 20 minutes. Just nothing interesting, just rambling nonsense

Tried listening for Clippers coverage during the playoffs and was just underwhelmed. They were obviously not in tune with what the team, players, and coaching staff have been doing all year, which resulted in them being pretty much clueless about the Clippers in the postseason. Kept bringing up...Read full review »

Love this pod. Great analysis of the NBA, with varied opinions from the Hoop Collective. Brian does an amazing job as host. Very insightful listening
Rogerfreeman9 via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 06/25/21
Loved the front office insights and objectivity from Brian. I have held off writing this review for a week after listening to the pod on my favorite team Lakers being bounced. I prepared myself for the pod, expecting criticism, but the glee from Bontemps and McMahon was just insufferable. I had...Read full review »

Great nba pod ! Wendy is a great host and the episodes with both Tim's on are by far the best. Highly recommend this podcast for any level of nba fans.Read full review »

Love The continent Windhorst is the best. Drives me nuts that the release dates are inconsistent
Mclyde03 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/21
How Windbag actually has a platform to speak is a travesty to journalism. His takes and bias on a National level is inexcusable. He has no credibility and quite frankly does not watch games or players that he comments on with the exception of a few. Absolutely pathetic and should not be employed...Read full review »

This is one of my favorite basketball podcasts, but it has flaws. I know Brian and Bontemps can be polarizing to some, but when it’s Brian and the two Tims it is great. I don’t appreciate how Brian will let the others call him out for what they think are bad takes when other media people might...Read full review »

It’s funny Brian doesn’t wana say KD is best player right now. Coming back from injury it’s impressive what kd is doing. If lebron was doing this brain would be screaming lebron being the best player

Low...energy 😴
Duckhunter44 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/21
Ehh
Bontemps is insufferable, Windhorst not too far behind, McMahon is the lone bright spot
tmike23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/21
That man just over speaks interrupts too much and thinks he has superiority opinions
timistrash via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/21
Brian - please have someone change your pic under the ‘hosts & guests’ section of your pod on the iPhones, this pic is creep-zilla material! Not good! 🥸
Michael MacGillivray via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/26/21
Love the hoop collective. But I truly hope Liza Robinson never comes on the podcast again. The 2 times she’s been on have been the worst episodes in the podcast.
NBApods via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/21
Brian is hit or miss but the Tim’s are too sensitive to listen too
213buddu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/21
Brian comparing NBAs in season tournament to Champions league is wrong it will likely be comparable to FA Cup or Pokal or other league cups
tommzmust1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/21
His guests are great, but I don’t know how windhorst is a credible reporter. Some of his takes are terrible.
basketball444444 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/21
love it!!!! b-windy held it down , against the two tims the other day! jokic 4 mvp😅🙄
Hue b via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/21
Stephen a smith killed the trash top 25 under 25 rankings. Is Tim bontemps gonna call him out and cry about it? Straw poll was trash too
austin99118822 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/21
Love the pod but why do you hate on Jokic so much? He’s the MVP of this season PERIOD
riceindabowl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/21
Friday, April 16, 2021. Listen to this episode and how Brian bullies his guests. As a long-time listener of many basketball podcasts, this is the first time in a long time that I’ve unsubscribed from a podcast. Sure there are episodes here or there where you’re not interested in the topic, but...Read full review »
marcelg_nba via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/21
Every time Bontemps is on he ruins the episode. My final straw was this Friday’s 4/16 podcast around the MVP poll. He was completely disrespectful to Brian and took everything too personally. I will no longer listen to any podcast that he is on.
Monkeyzms via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/21
Overly emotional Tim makes me want to change to a different station.
Rafael Testai via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/21
Brian Windhorst is the least informed and most obnoxious NBA reporter I’ve ever come across. Why does ESPN continue to employ this clown?
Ryan184 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/21
Love Banned MacMahon...but the other Tim...Tim Bontemps is just the WORST!!! Get him off the podcast I love!!! Pretty sure he just dug his own grave after that embarrassing display on the mvp straw poll episode...Back when life was real and In person I told the talking heads at tnt inside the nba...Read full review »

Windhorst is on LeBron’s payroll and consistently acts like he has insider info that none of the other reporters could ever be privy to. It is unlikely that he watches games and his focus is often on drama.
andydusse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/21
windhorst just lost a listener
Smuntini via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/21
Wow, probably the best single sports podcast, I ever heard. The Straw Poll, Raw Real Emotion. Great Chemistry among the three host. Windhorst position a little bit nuts. They went at his nutso position but give Windy credit he let them go at him. Great Chemisty. The only past example in NBA...Read full review »
kaizen rodriguez via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/21
Windy makes NBA fans dumber with his lack of analysis and limited knowledge of the game of basketball. Thank god he brings other media members on or this wouldn’t be a show at all.
