The Lowe Post

While basketball media is split between those who favor in-depth analysis and those who enjoy drama and storytelling, ESPN’s Zach Lowe walks in both worlds, and that makes his podcast one of the most entertaining in sports. Lowe is capable of breaking down any play to show what players did and why they did it, but he’s also an insightful reporter, drawing on sources — including players, managers, and other journalists — to shed light on the world behind the scenes of the NBA.

Thankfully, Simmons has lost none of his flair when interviewing athletes, celebrities, and sports experts.
