We’ve recorded podcasts in the past, but never like this. Starting this week, we’re teaming up with Winner’s Circle Media to chop things up on a variety of topics around the NBA (and beyond). As always at SLAM, we won’t hesitate to speak our minds, so listen up.

On Episode 1 of Respect the Game: The SLAM Podcast, co-hosts Peter Walsh and Abe Schwadron discuss the Rockets’ firing of head coach Kevin McHale, the early-season dominance of SLAM 193 cover subject Stephen Curry and the Warriors, take a look at the best rookies around the League and much, much more. Hit play and let us know what you think in the comments section.
