So, I just saw an Ringer NBA Show pop up with Bill on their recurring 'Group Chat' show... and it occurred to me that I don't remember the last time that Bill appeared on a show talking basketball with Haley or Juliet, the two basketball ladies of note on the Ringer and Haley seems like the person bumped from the show for Bill. Maybe I'm projecting something here but does Bill just not care to talk basketball with women? I just don't remember the last time I heard him do so and it struck me all the sudden.

Both mentioned within 15 minutes, the Brooklyn pick is a discrete concept they are discussing at length.

What's the word in German for when you are excited to hate listen to the impending PTA episode?

I had to stop and will finish later but Fennessey was somehow doing worse than Bill, in a total Chris Farley Show zone

My favorite part of the interview is how audible PTA's deep sighs are.

The legit best part was maybe PTA disclosing that he creates trailers for movies he shows his kids.

I listened to his Best Movies of 2017 podcast just to get “The Florida Project... didn’t really dig it... it bummed me out” and was not disappointed

I always think of Bob Ley when I see a Tom Ley byline, which pays off when the title is something like "Get a Load of this Fucking Bill Simmons Column"

Why does Deadspin post so much about Bill Simm

You'd imagine they'd be a touch more self-aware

Tom Cruise wrote:Why does Deadspin post so much about Bill Simm

People ask us why we harp on Bill Simmons a lot here and the answer is because he’s the most powerful, influential sportswriter in America. He is the only man who was given not one but TWO blank checks to open up a vanity shop, wherein he can collect writers to lend him the kind of prestige that his own work cannot. And he sucks. He is a deluded brat whose entire reference point for anything is himself, and who has sunk ever deeper into flannel-draped megalomania in his quest to become a peer among West Coast tech bros. That, my friends, is newsworthy shit.

The advantages he’s been given are fucking nauseating. The man got paid millions upon millions of dollars and was granted full creative license by ESPN, and he STILL bitches about how that company held him down and treated him (Trump voice) VERY UNFAIRLY. His football team is the greatest of all time and he still feels compelled to tsk-tsk a reporter for his work because he heard something TOTALLY different when he was sharing a Lime-A-Rita with Julian Edelman. It’s fucking embarrassing, and it’s emblematic of an America where one aggro dickwipe is somehow worth 10 times as much, if not much more, than the superior talents beneath him.
