    We are the same. I skip coaches and players.

    “What up, Beck“

    Agree with this word for word. Cannot stand to listen to any player or coach interviewee on any podcast, even Lowe’s, who’s my favorite. You could pretty much guess what the answer to any question is going to be.

    I will drop everything I’m doing to listen to a “What up Beck” podcast or the random Raptor beat writers he interviews though.

    Bill having to listen to noah shower praise on what a good dude Lebron is was enjoyable.

    As was bill comparing himself to AOC.

    Lebron is a good dude from what we know but it doesn’t also mean he is above any criticism.

    If there was a subreddit called “feel people die inside”, the top post would be the audio of Trevor shitting on being a fan due to lineage, and the silence from bills mic.

    oof and now we have Daryl Morey going know-it-all about soccer when he's never even won anything in his actual sport. Soccer is really having a moment on the BS podcast.

    gave the Simmons/Russilo pod another shot knowing we were in the playoffs so maybe they'd be a little more on-topic

    another first half hour of old man cane waving schtick

    those two together play into each others worst impulses

    Robert Mays getting right on the mic to say "welcome" when their podcast starts is so weird it's kinda funny

    The Press Box is pretty good. Bryan Curtis is in London for an extended period and did the same in Australia last year. Wonder if his wife travels for her job or something.

    agreed. they need to chill out sometimes but their knowledge and passion are pretty much unmatched and it makes the show more enjoyable to watch.

    i'm not sure anyone listens to this podcast but it's probably the most consistently great one they have, but is often bleak and philosophical

    Simmons November through March: “In the playoffs depth doesn’t matter as much. It’s who are your best guys.”

    Simmons in April: “Yeah i don’t know, Golden State only has 7 guys.”

    he picked houston, so any "analysis" he provides of that series is colored by that

    plus he has always been pretty bad with in the moment, short-term takes, and its just more pronounced now that he doesnt really give much of a shit anymore

    Was just coming to post this. He believes that Pop throwing a chair was a better choice the walking on to the court and screaming to foul like he did

    Bills a professional at what he does, but he’s basically just a dude in this thread who built a career in that industry. I think we need to often remind ourselves of that, lest we get neck problems from all the head shaking we do.

    How the fuck does the team not foul in that circumstance or have the presence to look toward the bench to see if they should? I’m guessing bill literally does go Bobby Knight on a chair if he’s coaching anything.

    throwing a chair or whatever is dumb but it's insane how little flak pop gets for his team's failures. if dwane casey's or alvin gentry's teams don't foul down four with 25 seconds left in a game seven, you better believe those coaches are getting torched on every single 30 minute espn show. and though they talked about this briefly, the spurs have not evolved with the rest of the nba and are simply playing inefficient basketball. 2015 was the last time they weren't bottom 5 in the league in 3pa so it's not strictly a derozan issue, either.

    pop is a great coach - probably the best of my lifetime - but he's not omniscient.

    also, pretty certain the simmons criticism of pop was the "zag" thing where they imitate the first take people. he said that at the end.

    That team not fouling is on the players, imo. Maybe he deserves more criticism, in general, but if you’re in the nba you should have that situational awareness on your own.

    you could hear on the last pod that BS is ready to declare Brown better than Tatum but was afraid to do it out loud.

    Chris Vernon seems like a total loser.

    Do nfl teams not send referee tape to the league to get feedback on calls they felt were inaccurate?

    I still listen to Simmons with Russillo but I chuckle every time when it’s something like

    “Reminds me of the 04 Red Sox”


    “Back in 85 and larry”
