    1000%, there are days where I honestly question if English is his first language or not.

    We all knew the "back door" existed, ie the Kushners of the world donating a shitload of money so junior could get in. The "side door," where people got put onto the rowing team with everyone involved knowing they would never row, I kind of doubt that one.

    I was listening to either the Natural Rewatchables or the BS from today, and he admitted he didn’t know how to pronounce “idolatry.”

    I think he said he was Dyslexic when he was younger. It’s why I figured he has issues pronouncing words.

    I guess I’m in the minority but I find him and Russillo hilarious together. I didn’t listen to Russillo at all when he was at ESPN since he was on during the work day.

    I like him and Rusillo together. I just think that Simmons can come across as pompous/arrogant sometimes. I don’t think it’s intentional either, he has just lost touch with normal people.

    Lets just start a Simmons/Russillo mad-libs for their joint episodes, its the same fucking thing every single show:

    "Thats why I don't get the _______ thing on Twitter I see now"
    "You and I were both early on _______"
    Russilo brings up a valid point people are making on race, immediately dismisses it
    Russilo mentions an obscure Celtics player from the past, Bill cackles
    LeBron/Laker bashing
    30 mins of Celtics discussion from Bill and Mr. "I promise I'm not even a Celtics fan anymore"

    Did anyone else catch Bill saying Whoa-Ford for Wordpress today. It triggers me like nothing else they he doesn’t know how to say words.

    Weird listening to Bill propose a plan for a play-in game for the nba playoffs after listening to him last week not to pleased that the ncaa has play-in games.

    He was a nice change from the Talk Radio Guy prototype that basically had hot takes and not much substance. Plus he liked the nba and actually watched games.

    i still find most simmons pods enjoyable and russillo and simmons are good.

    i think their weekly nba podcast isn't great because it's repetitive but that's the nature of the nba. the lakers and celtics being bad and lebron and kyrie-centered discussions is what you'd talk about for months. if they did a podcast every two weeks and spent an hour or so on the last two weeks' news (e.g. zion in the tourney, the oscars, whatever) and then the other half on the nba, it'd be better because they'd have more material to cover.

    the nfl season is so short and sal and simmons can focus on gambling so their weekly show works.

    Not sure what was worse, 7 minutes of Bill’s golf game or Bill and JackO’s take on Trump/Russia. No one is tuning in to listen to those takes.

    I thought it was somewhat helpful for understanding where white guys who make over 100k in passive income think the democratic party is and why don't you pay the players.

    No, she hasnt been on his BS pod but since she was on a bachelor pod I counted her. I havent got a chance to listen to the Hader pod yet but saw the surprise and thought it might be her.

    why? she was really good. obviously it wouldn't be fun if she's on every couple of months but she's a way better guest than his dad (who i haven't listened to in years) and is clearly where he gets his humor from.

    really brave of Russilo to go out on such a limb predicting the #5 pick (DWade) in a loaded draft was going to be good, maybe he's the one NBA teams should hire instead of Haralabob

    also, saying Dwight Howard isn't a hall of famer is ridiculous and I hate D12
