    The number of times House has said “I agree with you 100% Bill Simmons” has to be in the low 4 figures at this point.

    It was like listening to a 13 year old girl who just got dumped talk to her mom

    “Maybe it would’ve been better for the Celtics to not even make the Finals in the first place :magatears:

    “Oh no sweetie, it’s gonna be okay! Tatum is only 24, he’ll learn from this!”

    “I mean if Middleton is healthy, the Bucks are in the Finals…right? :cryingjordan:

    “Oh come on sweetheart, you play who’s on the court! You can’t control that!”

    I don't think I've ever made it more than 5 minutes on any pod with House. I don't see myself even trying on this.

    Skipping House pods is the first step to full Simmons deconstruction. You’re on your way.

    House ass-kissing his millionaire friend who employs him is the least shocking thing ever.

    I enjoy drunk House, but hate when he is in fealty mode.

    It’s not shit talking to say Boston’s run was mostly injury luck aided and that Tatum isn’t a superstar, it’s just the truth. Hearing a Wizard fan go glass half full and give a pep talk about the Celtics future is cuck personified.

    I probably would not talk shit to my friend hours after losing a championship

    if the razorbacks ever play for a title (lol) and lost and a friend did that I would exercise my 2nd amendment rights and go buy an assault rifle

    I saw my alma mater lose to Bama in a national championship and if a friend had talked shit to me within an hour of it I probably would have said fuck Off even though Bama was better

    i don’t disagree…and House could have pushed him harder but House also gets a stupid food and gambling lifestyle subsidized by Bill so I’d imagine he treads lightly. I mean has House ever said one interesting thing about golf?

    He and RR actually watch games, so there’s that. This likely speaks to the bullpen of pundits there. Wos and Raja are the only other two I like listening to on bball. If they put Raja and KOC together they could cancel the other 10 NBA pods that exist on the network.

    I don’t get a cut if that’s what you are implying. Just stating that a condensed course on the current state of basketball strategy and concepts is good for understanding the NBA today unlike some of the Ringer pod hosts.

    i was gonna say, she’s not the best but at least she’s a non-privileged white guy named Chris or Kevin, who says intelligent things sometimes.

    But of course she’s from an upper class, political family.

    i felt like bill was actually onto something when he started talking about tatum's minutes played during the regular season and playoffs up to the finals. and how every #1 player is tired and has some kind of injury, but he immediately moved onto some other topic
