I like Doug Collins.  I think he has a wealth of basketball knowledge and might be really insightful.  Maybe he can share his favorite Andrew Bynum stories also.

Good news. I swear, every time Wilbon spoke he first had to touch Magic's arm. Weird. Mancrush bigtime.


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick (Randle!) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!...but the jury is out)

Personally I'd have moved Simmons who must meet his Boston Celtics name drop quota regularly, or Rose who can't be objective towards any big name player.

All of them are pretty annoying, really.  Simmons is the only tolerable one out of the bunch, since he's not an ESPN puppet, but the entire crew can be replaced.

Should have gotten rid of Simmons. When he talks, I don't know if it's him or Dakota Fanning.

I honestly think Jalen does a great job. I had low expectations for him at first but he's been fantastic. Could do without Simmons, Magic has a great personality but flip flops like crazy lol. His up-and-down dramatic emotions are good for tv though. No strong feeling about Wilbon. I don't know how entertaining Doug Collins will be, but excited to see how he does.

^ Jalen does a pretty good job on grantland as well. I'm subscribed to their YouTube channel. Some good stuff from time to time.

Maybe he can share his favorite Andrew Bynum stories also.

:laughing: That'd be terrific.

After his gasp during the number one pick, Simmons is sticking around for a while

My view is that

 

 

 

training camp cannot start soon enough, if this is newsworthy, then we have nothing meaningful to talk about.

Oh there's been worse, but this isn't close to it per say. At the minimum at least some people do actually watch the halftime shows and or pregame & postgame roundtable discussions. That's relevant enough.
