    Russillo smugly thinking he was so unique for his "I like Ibaka more than Harrell" take only for Bill and House to say "Yeah we think so too!" was a highlight

    Given the collective history of those three, Harrell was the better signing.

    Bill saying he hated the kings losing Boggy for nothing, shitting on their attempt to get DiVecenzo, and then getting called on it by Rusillo was perfect.

    prayers up for Bill who says he's "scared" at where society is going because LeBron said his last 2 titles were the toughest ever and nobody in the sports media had the guts to stick up for a Celtics team, sounds just terrifying for humanity

    Exactly. And the way he framed it too. “I’m scared if this is how things will be now” or whatever. Maybe don’t worry about it because who the hell cares? Do we need takes on everything LeBron says?

    I just started listening to their shit over under pod, and Bill really put the cherry on top when he complemented the Celtics for letting Hayward leave for nothing.

    just listened to the first 10 minutes before they came on where Bill gave his thoughts on the rookie class so far. You will never guess who is in his top 4 most impressive rookies list after week 1!

    Best part is the first game since the pod dropped Prichard put up an 0 pt, 0 reb, 2 ast stat line in 16 mins against the Pistons

    loved Bill's analysis that KC could either win the Super Bowl or lose in round 2 or 3, I believe that is in fact how playoffs work

    also it's always hilarious when he gets an answer he either wasn't expecting or doesn't agree with and just motors right past the guest

    Bill: "Who is this year's NOBODY BELIEVES IN US team?"
    Sharp: "I think you have to look at the Ravens"
    Bill: "Yeah but they beat up on bad teams"
    Sharp: "Decisively dominating bad teams is a good thing"
    Bill: "So anyways, this is why I like the Bills..."

    I dont mind Bill and Sal talking about football because they are both dumb and its just funny and they dont try to sound "smart". But Bill talking with Sharp or someone where he tries to act "smart" is unlistenable. He really doesnt know a god damn thing about football.
