SbB has learned Chris Broussard & Jon Barry won't returm to ESPN's NBA studio. Added to show: @sportsguy33 & Stan Van Gundy


I like the Van Gundy addition but not sure about Simmons. Hes a great writer but hes horrible on TV/radio with his fruity ass nerdy voice.

I don't think Simmons is a good addition to anything intended to be objective.

Damn it, I was hoping Stan would join Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy doing games. :laughing: Can you imagine what it'd be like for Mike?

I love it. Both of these guys are not only extremely knowledgeable about the game, but they have great personalities as well and aren't afraid not to be politically correct.

Too bad, I enjoyed Jon Barry quite a bit.

Broussard, eh, don't hate the guy but he didn't bring anything to the table really.
