He was on the Warriors bandwagon too. He looks at players, not the system, coaching, execution, or the hearts of seasoned vets.

Isn't he the writer who publishes decent commentary with a sense of humor? I like his columns, but his talent is lost on TV.

Agreed his writing is great and he's always had a ton of respect for the spurs and their system. But he's just horrible on tv

I can't stand that clown man, got on him in 03 with an EMAIL for crap he said about 99 and so on! I emailed him and said what now? This was after our FIRST SO CALLED LEGIT TITLE! Ever since then he has been my enemy.

YEP! He also disses our titles! FOOTNOTE thing he wrote for titles, an excuse for every one we had! PERIOD. He is bitter over 97 draft still, period.

I honestly thing that dude is one of the biggest clowns out there. He said we would win it all last year and we were like the 86 Celts, then we lost 4 in a row It is better he stays on the other side. He says a few good things and then disses them later or a backhanded comment. I have read his stuff for years and have seen just that, forget that chump.

One more thing, his voice is beyond annoying! LITTLE SOFTIE he is.

Which is a damn shame being he knows so much about the game and has been around for a while, yet gets caught up in media hype and can't form his own opinion on air. He is just like the rest of the noobs on there.

He was visibly bias...almost like it was personal...it was awkward when I saw him on ESPN...he even yelled at the end of the segment awkwardly "I stand by Memphis in 6"...just weird.

+1

I assume he is a TV or radio talking head in sports. I don't watch TV or listen to radio other than for Spurs games except for movies or news on rare occasions or the weather channel if a bad storm is approaching.

If you really want to know what Simmons really thinks about the Spurs, just listen to his last podcast http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-tr...rt-joe-house-4. It is a 30 minute opus to how much he loves Tim Duncan and thinks he's the greatest player of his generation. He also goes on how much he loves Ginobili, Parker and Pop and as a bonus he rips on Kobe. I don't think there is any kind of bias, he just has genuinely bought into the notion that the Spurs can't handle the Griz size (as many people on this very board were grousing about just 24 hours ago: http://www.spursreport.com/forums/sp...nightmare.html (MEMPHIS = MATCHUP NIGHTMARE))

I'd give him a huge break. He is one of the few guys on BSPN who regularly gives the Spurs credit. And keep in mind as a Celtics fan he should be bitter because through luck (Duncan) and incompetence (Parker), the Spurs snagged two players that should have been wearing green and white.

I was about to post that same podcast. Just because someone picks against our team doesn't make them a jerk or an idiot. I kind of like being the underdog anyway.

I gotta think that the ESPN guys are playing to a script. Their function is to build up story lines and suspense in the hope of increasing ratings. What they may say in private is probably very different from what they say in public. They get serious money to act as shills.

It's a weird job, but money trumps integrity almost every time.

If it was just picking against SA, I wouldn't have a problem. But it isn't. Its like listening to a knicks-spurs game with frazier (who I see as one of the most bias) calling it. Just too much. It could be the espn script... Maybe skip Bayless actually hates SA?
