How the fuck do you not have Mallory on your Unfaithful rewatchables
wish Bill was still active on twitter for games like tonight
Bill talking himself into the Nuggets, after discussing how easy of a road the Lakers have had and continue to have (because of in part, the Nuggets), made me laugh.
Titus sonning Russillo is the cherry on top from last night
He’s getting dangerously close to going full-Skip on his LeBron takes, which is pretty weird considering his stance on LeBron’s all-time ranking after the Cavs-Warriors series.
The Lakers signing messed with Bill’s head, which is also weird given that he saw it coming and called it a year in advance.
I love to hate the Lakers as much as anyone, but it’s starting to get embarrassing.
well somehow in the last 2 years he's bumped LeBron down one in his all time rankings so yeah
bill shouldnt be mad at the rockets being an easy road, he should be mad that the rockets finally got the lakers to cut the dwight and javale shit, play ad at the 5, and just beat the piss out of people
Lakers are going to cruise to the title now.
excited to see how these 2 roast Kawhi after that atrocious choke job
Bill and Ryen:
the funniest part of today's pod had nothing to do with an LA team
it was bill saying bill russell was one of the all-time great/underrated passers at C
Listened to the Simmons/Russillo pod.
It was awful. Simmons brought up the Celtics for no reason 20x before they even talked about game 1. He was stupid throughout. Russillo said 50 things that annoyed the hell out of me, and I now can't listen to Russillo without catching every variation of him starting a point by saying "do that thing where..." because of ZeroPointZero posts talking about that in here. His ego when it comes to basketball is insane.
However, I don't get why anyone would be mad at Russillo for not killing Kawhi for that performance. I get why people would be annoyed with Stephen A or Skip or even Simmons if they gave him a pass because of all the times they haven't done that for LeBron. But, for all of Russillo's annoying traits, that's not really one of them. He'll kill Harden or George or Westbrook as guys who have consistently come up short in big moments, but he's not generally the guy who would crush LeBron, so I'm not sure why people think he has to crush Kawhi because of one awful game in a huge spot.
Kawhi has two Finals MVPs. I get that too but man what a choke job.
I just can’t imagine listening to that on purpose.
I listened for the first time in a long time. It wasn’t good. I was just begging for Lowe to drop his pod
I like when they're doing a 2020 playoff game review thing and Bill spend half the time referencing the 80s Celtics
was simmons breakdown of game 1 as good as I had hoped as a heat fan?
No. They honestly did not spend enough time on it. Shocking
it was truly bad. I don’t even remember any meaningful insights or analysis. Weird for a 2 hour pod.
Didn’t even bother listening for that fact alone.
jackie mac is good
bill and jackie mac talking about the celtics for 30 minutes every pod is very, very bad
Not sure about this move. She seems to lean towards talking Boston even more than Bill does, when she was on ESPN pods.
The Bostofication of the ringer is kind of hilarious. Like WTF are you doing Spotify? Is Reiss or Shaugnessy next?
Can’t wait for stories about Danny Ainge in 1989
I like Jackie Mac. She was a trailblazer for women sportswriters.
I’ll take all the 80s talk I can get.
that you are only a few years older than me is endlessly funny
i like jackie mac, too. she's been great on pods that i've heard before and i'd enjoy old nba stories, i think,
i don't enjoy relating everything to the celtics and i think bill will do that even more with her. i could see 30 minutes of a 60 minute pod segment with her and bill just being the celtics, no exaggeration.
I love 80s music, movies and sports. You make everything political. It’s just what you do.
what? its not political, aren't you mid to late 30's?
so you're a man
i just find it funny people who are in love with eras they only have minimal recollection of in the moment, in light of your overall old man schtick it's fitting, i don't have that same reflex as someone who was older during the 90s
its ok, we don't have to get upset about it or think its "political" whatever that means in this contet
It’s not a schtick. I’ve always like 80s music and movies since the 90’s. My parents loved and played Huey Lewis, Hall & Oates and Phil Collins. Just because I had a different experience then you did doesn’t make me weird.
Sorry if I said it was political seeing you make most things regarding myself political. That’s definitely you’re “schtik”.
Music peaked when i was in pre-k
What year was that?
Even at the time this was a completely transparent lie
the defensiveness some of you all get, seemingly because of that latter sentence, unhealthy
i didn't even say you're weird, which i get is some trigger word for people these days, it's an atypical experience from my own I find amusing as it's different. its ok, it doesn't make you weird, it might make me weird, just take a deep breath. i do find an excessive focus on nostalgia bizarre, and i mean that in a bad way, but I don't even know you fit that box.
shtick isn't even bad, you can't use the quote function, it's your shtick, i find it charming that fits your old man shtick.
I’ve always been an old man though. I wore polo shirts tucked into khaki shorts in HS in the 90s. I’ve always been a preppy. I’m basically Clark Griswold since I was 14.
I’m also very nostalgic. I miss the 90s a lot. It was a simpler and more fun time. I’m blessed to have had a great childhood. I love to reminisce with my friends about back in the day.
No, I sometimes click on Ignored Content. You’re a shit talker. It wasn’t a lie.
You’re one of two people I Ignore yet you Follow me. I’m sure it’s tough to swallow.
You must click that button a lot, because this is the first time since the post in question that you aren't going to respond to something i say
I do based on this thread. Other threads I don’t. This is the only thread on the main board I really follow.

is this one of those opposite attracts porno situations? unsubscribe.
Honestly, I’d be cool if the shit talking was stopped. I don’t get why we have to get at each other. Let’s just talk about the Ringer. I’m not a confrontational person but I won’t also get stepped on. I don’t like some of you but who cares.
Lets just agree to discuss the Ringer and leave personal attacks out of it.
we know man you just want to talk about 80s and 90s content and reminisce about Simmons when he was a writer.
you probably love smooth peanut butter and grape jelly sandwiches.
some of us like to analyze what is going on in media and how it intersects with demographics.
Which one of them is stuck in a dryer or window?
Yep I’ve had PB&J 3-4 times a week since the 1st grade. Especially during Covid the last six months I’ve had it 4-5 times a week. No problems with that.
We can all post here but stay out of each other’s way. I don’t get why some of you have an issue like ZeroPointZero with what I post. I don’t care if you want to talk about other stuff.
you're just the most upper middle class white oblivious of social constructs guy that ever lived.
nobody dislikes you war grundle, you're just like the bullseye.
You know nothing about me. I’m amazed at some of you who have such strong opinions yet know jack shit. The fact poor paul can say such a thing is such an ignorant statement.
I’m not oblivious of social constructs though. I went to an inner city school from 6-12 grade. I drove too high school two black friends who lived in lower income housing who I played football with. I grew up middle class. I was one of five white guys on a 55 man football team.
I’m just continually amazed the assertions some you of make. You make blind assumptions. Especially when I do nothing of the sort.
For the side who hates stereotypes you seem to love to stereotype those don’t coincide with your rationale.
like I said.
"I have black friends"
