I didn't see the pre-game, but watched the halftime bit and didn't see Simmons. Is he off the panel?

He's too busy writing a 3,000 word article about why the 86' Celtics are the greatest team in sports history.

I never liked the analysts ESPN gave for the NBA in general.

NBA TV with their analysts, not including fan night cuz of overkill, seems better to me. They are more entertaining than what ESPN has to offer.

They are not even close to TNT production crew IMO.

I know ESPN sucks but having Jalen on there as the lead guy... I mean the dude can't even talk.

Every thing he says has some ridiculous inflection through his constant sh:t-eating grin.

Maybe he'd be okay as an analyst but as the lead??

Jalen Rose has good chemistry with the other guys and throws in a few analytical gems ONCE in a while. Idk why people act like he's absolutely horrible or something

You gotta realize; corny ass niggas like Jalen are great for stuff like ESPN because they're family friendly nigs who can make a white guy laugh but are also black at the same time. He might not have perfect on camera presence but I rarely hear him say anything where i'm like

Not like Skip Bayless or anything...

Bill Simmons is wayyyy less camera friendly. Looks and sounds like a little mouse

TNT Thursday crew FTW

If you don't like that show you can gtfo

Jalen should not lead. I like when he speaks normally but when he's reading the teleprompter during intros and leading to commercial is horrible.

Jalen is now what he hated about Grant Hill. But worse. Hypocrite.

They need to blow up the entire cast. With shotguns.

Jalen is arguably the best of the bunch and he's god awful.
