In the words of Draymond Green, the "New Media" is taking over the NBA. NBA players, retired and active, are transitioning into media members daily with their podcasts. Player-led podcasts have saturated the media industry and have led basketball discourse online among NBA fans. While platforms like All The Smoke and Knuckleheads started this new era of player-led podcasts, newer pods like Podcast P with Paul George and The Draymond Green Show are revolutionizing the podcast industry. 

Instead of waiting to hear from a player during a postgame press conference or a spontaneous interview from a major media outlet, players are taking control of their own narratives with podcasts. We've seen Draymond detail moments like his beef with Dillon Brooks from his podcast. We've seen JJ Redick bring on Ben Simmons to voice the struggles he went through in Philadelphia for the first time. Yes, social media can provide that avenue too but a podcast allows you to go in depth without the limitation of characters.

We curated a list of the best NBA player podcast in the game right now.
