Griping about how hard it is to find NBA preseason games

New, comments

Episode 20 of the Superfluous Poppycock podcast contains complaining about the lack of preseason broadcasts. You’ve been warned.

“JRW sounds upset. Maybe we should give him what he wants.”

I don’t like to complain and gripe, but here is a topic that deserves it. This preseason, NBA has made it hard for its fans to watch its product. And it’s beyond frustrating.
