    I loved Grantland and TBOB, but it always mystified me how Simmons got as much pull at ESPN as he did.

    Simmons' downfall began the moment he let people hear his voice

    He timed it well. He was a Boston guy emerging when Boston teams got good. I'll always respect him for Grantland, but he's a pretty big douchebag.

    I was as big of a fan as there could be. Read the book of basketball, all of his columns, and listened to his podcast. Somewhere along to way he became a huge douche. It all took a strange turn right around the time he said people in Memphis still haven't gotten over the MLK assassination and he could sense it at a Grizzlies game.

    Yes, he actually said that.

    They have past history. Simmons does praise their broadcast team for being elite, but then makes fun of his comments in a terrible impression and it's almost never funny and always makes CC look bad.

    Simmons stopped actually watching games as he got "more important" and busier with running websites. His takes went from being interesting and/or funny to just bad and hot takey.

    Also his pop culture references seem to never evolve other than Fast and Furious and John Wick, and is starting to slide into Chris Berman territory.


    Eventually all dads become uncool.

    If nobody watched his show it was not great because he's bad at tv and it was basically just a new platform to whine about deflategate more. The guests were always friends of his and the interviews consisted of him complimenting them and agreeing with everything they said.

    I think I liked everything about Simmons show, except listening to Simmons himself. He did ask some interesting questions, which was part of the reason I liked the show, but man is he annoying when he talks.
