Look I've done my share of Simmons bashing over the past year AA's been in existence. If you want to re-live it just use the new pretty search button in the top right corner. I've moved past that on the site, and think everything is much better for it.
With that said.....here's the main question I have about this podcast endeavour. If you're wanting this Podcast to take off, wouldn't you do something a little different than rehashing all of your NBA columns with Marc Stein for 23 minutes?
Eye of the Sports Guy (ESPN: Podcasts)
I'll be honest with you....I've been extremely impressed with Simmons as of late. From the Basketball Blog to his Announcing gig in the West Coast Conference this past College season. He seems to be re-focused and has been hammering out good material for the past 5-6 months or so.
This on the other hand is just the opposite of that formula. It's an Awful attempt at forcing someone into Podcast Land. If you need some tips Bill....try out The Basketball Jones. Just think of what TBJ could do with ESPN's resources? But I digress....
I'm giving this one a solid D for a grade. Everyone is aware that Bill knows more about the NBA than anyone else at the Leader.....now let's come up with some original content and guests to go with that. Also, let's hope he's lying about next week.....
"We will have a guest that is probably not going to be as famous as Marc Stein, but will hopefully be just as entertaining."
(P.S.- That intro is wack....let's change that too.)
