The Mismatch makes the Ringer NBA show worth subscribing to. The other shows tend to be a little underwhelming, but the dynamic between KOC and Chris Vernon is entertaining and informative, with quality segments.

I love the ringer and I love these shows! Heat check has the best intro!

This is the podcast I most look forward to every week. Intelligent and funny. Well done Vern’O and Kev’O.

Love this podcast. Informative and fun.

There isn’t an original idea on this pod. Everyone just repeats Bill Simmons’ takes. When they have the regional “fans “ on the show they routinely don’t know who is on the roster at the time (Isaac Lee). The major NBA guy, Kevin O’Connor, has supported and predicted the Suns will be good for the...Read full review »

I really like Bill Simmons and the Ringer with the exception of the cabal of Chris Ryan and Dan Devine who constantly take veiled shots at the Celtics. I can see why. One is a Philly guy whose franchise has won a tiny fraction of the titles the Celtics have while Devine is a New Yorker who, like...Read full review »

All the shows are great, but the Mismatch is my favorite.

We need more Tjarks.

Y’all don’t talk enough about Siakam
Silly pancakes via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/02/19
I wish I could write separate reviews for each contributor, because some are thoughtful (Tjarks, usually KOC), while others seem to do their research on Twitter (Verrier, Gonzalez). I’ve caught many factual errors when they talk about my home team. Nothing major, but it makes me wonder if I can...Read full review »

I listen to this pod because I love the NBA and Bill Simmons, but the main reason it’s still in my queue is Mismatch.
joncoal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/19
Easily my favorite podcast - love all the shows but The Mismatch is the GOAT pod
qp2106 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/19
Great NBA content discussion, Kevin OContriversy 😅

Can you do the mailbag on a more regular basis now?!? I enjoyed it and your answers! Great pod as always! Wenjo from Singapore
TERMINATOR#1 4 via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 08/28/19
As a rule I’d say I watch basketball through the KOC lens moreso than the way Vernon sees it - but the check and balance these two are for each other is perfection. KOC talking up Knox and the Knicks ‘solid young core’ HAD to get called out. He invoked Frank Ntilikina as evidence of successful...Read full review »

Love all the different angles that the diverse crew bring to hoops talk! Have to say that I try to avoid KOC's pods, though I'm sure he's valuable as a writer/glue-guy. Thanks for all the fun!

Mismatch is the best pod on the channel.

Hey what the heck no mention of Giannis or any east player odd
BoDaxx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/22/19
the mismatch is a 5 star pod for sure
mikeyyyyypalms via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/19
Officially unsubscribing. Tired of the negativity and biased talk on the Lakers. Mismatch the only pod that is objective. Seriously guys, I wanna listen to this pod but you make it unbearable. Be professional.
rocfather6969! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/17/19
I love having 2 drastically different perspectives and regions represented!! Midwest is Best!!! Awesome Podcast!!
dshryock33 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/19
Kevin o’candyland and Chris are the best love your guys show every Tuesday.
Drewskyboy55 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/14/19
Mismatch is the best one but almost all of them are more than tolerable and have great perspective
themisterburke via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/13/19
I usually only listen to the Mismatch pod w KOC and Verno (and often the Corner Three, too, when it’s happening. But Tjarks often trails off near the end of his sentences to where you can’t hear him well. He usually has interesting and insightful stuff to say, though) and then skip the others....Read full review »

Like a lot of the voices so will continue to listen, but John Gonzalez is a prominent host which is why I think this 1 star is deserved He’s neither witty/funny or does any research on what he’s talking about. Being infuriating and not being knowledgeable on just about every topic makes it...Read full review »

Vernon you my boy! Forget all these haters
esmatlock2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/19
Don’t listen to any of the haters, each pod has it’s own unique flavor, and that is completely okay. My personal faves are Heat Check and Group Chat, but all and all this may be the best NBA pod available.
Future sports writer Eli via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Chris Vernon is unpleasant. Every other contributor to this podcast offers solid analysis and opinions, making for a very pleasant and informative listen. My morning commute is irritating enough—I don’t need Vernon’s abrasive delivery to start the day.
s_long via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Love the mismatch, Verno!
gangsta pimp ATL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/04/19
Justin Verrier is horrible! Other than that it’s all good. Mismatch is the best!
JJ-Gnzlz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/19
Sure he’s a fine guy to hang out with, but he’s the worst part of this podcast
bjubes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/19
The ringer nba shows are all good but the Mismatch is the best basketball podcast. KOC is analytical which can be boring and Verno is a wild card that can be too much. But when the two are combined its perfect! I can listen to these two dudes talk forever!
Joey Bagzz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/19
Something was different on KOC and Verno’s last podcast- they were less snickery and it was more mature and it made it so much easier to listen to. It was awesome
Jpete1287 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/19
Cover the WNBA you cowards.
Bckbck113 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/19
Great cast with good chemistry. Listen to this pod for your basketball fix!

Love the mismatch and especially how Verno and KOC challenge each other’s point of view.
Idris170 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/21/19
I only listen for KOC and Verno
Ringer Fanatic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/19
Used to love this podcast. Still listen, but much less often. Gonzalez is awesome, Kevin O’Conner and Tjarks are great too. Chris Vernon has become childlike recently with his rebuttals to Kevin’s points. I used to enjoy the dynamic between Kevin and Verno, but recently it has degraded into Kevin...Read full review »

Constantly keeps me entertained. Great diversity of viewpoints.
TimWadeGunn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/19
... Kevin O’Connor is intolerable. Takes forever to get to the point. Constructing controversial arguments, flip-flops and laughs akwardly when his co-hosts puts him on the spot. Everytime he’s on one of these pods, stear well clear. He’s getting crushed regularly by the excellent Chris Vernon on...Read full review »
Nunnemor via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 07/17/19
Chris insists on arguing like a child whenever he disagrees with Kevin and it’s very hard to listen to. This most recent episode was the worst I’ve heard yet. They either need to replace him or ask him to argue respectfully or thoughtfully
Dainpetersen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/19
Good Grief! Only 4.5 out of 5 stars! KOC and Verno should do the occasional emergency pods.
Marcus Georges-Hoops via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/19
Love heat check and group chat. Kevin o Connor you’re a boss. Keep it up.
Zion will be best ever via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/15/19
Y’all realize after 1-2 with Lakers: Boogie (15 and 8) after injury Kuz (18ppg) Javale (12 and 7) DGreen (45% from 3 and Defense) Cook (backup Pg and deadly from 3) Also. “Lebron from first laker year” averaged 28-8-8 What in the heck is this Laker hate. Simmons still hurting bout the Ainge...Read full review »
XavierV123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/19
If you like the Celtics, Sixers, or any team below .500 you will love this podcast. They use the word “like” as much as a freshman high school girl. Is it one podcast or 5? Chris Vernon’s mind earned the stars for this rating.
upstreat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/19
The ringer is the best site for any nba fan and this podcast is just another example of their excellence. One critique? More of Tyler Tynes and his ridiculous philly takes
Anthony Wahl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
Love the show. Great analysis, charismatic hosts. Only caveat is they spent about three minutes talking about the "greatest Canadian artist" of all time in the latest episode and Neil Young's name didn't even come up. That's a bit of a travesty. Neil Young's output in the 70's was some of the...Read full review »
