Casual conversations about all things NBA and basketball related. Picture yourself in a bar, you're watching the game with your buddies and you guys are debating whether a player is better than another or not. That's what we're doing here, recording a casual conversation about everything NBA and basketball related. My name is Nick Valka, and I will be bringing on a variety of friends to discuss different topics, or just banter at random on what we're feeling about the league. If you like listening, go check out my blog at hoopsbanterblog.wordpress.com where I write in a similar way.
