Looking forward to checking this out tomorrow. I think the pairing with Jackie is going to be awesome.
It is. Jackie Mac is quickly becoming must-hear podcasting. At the end of her every appearance, Simmons gushes about how much he enjoyed it and how good it was... and he's not wrong.

Agreed. It's obvious how much the three of them love the game. The best part about the pod from yesterday is that they all bring a really unique perspective to the conversation and it felt like they could riff for hours. Ryen clearly watches way too much basketball, Simmons the same but with a less analytical eye, and Jackie has the institutional knowledge that would make anyone jealous.

Comparing the jealousy Durant felt toward Curry in Golden State to the jealousy his older puppy felt toward his newer puppy after the latter arrived at his home was *classic* Simmons.

He can't help himself when he gets something caught in his head, it's hilarious. For a year everything was somehow connected to 2k because his son plays it. Now it's the puppy.

Simmons talking about the Harden trade today and immediately using the 80s Celtics and the 00s Celtics to compare how teams with a big three could co-exist was definitely classic Simmons. Then he was like, "Oh yeah, and the Warriors with KD, yeah, they had 3 great players." It was perfect.

The 80s Celtics have nothing in common with the 2021 Nets right now. Nothing! There is no comparison, in my opinion, because Harden and Kyrie are incomparable.
