    Yeah people need to keep their political bullshit out of sports. It’s what’s killing Espn these days.

    i don't listen to them to be educated.
    they take the pulse of society, what the masses are talking about.

    i agree and disagree with their points and get a sense of how mainstream is thinking.

    it's media, and like all media, meant to be analyzed.
    sports and politics are merging, and they run the best 'sports show' that covers the politics of sports.

    as for everyone in society being an intellectual and hitting the footnotes, and periodicals, well that's utopian thinking. most people are too drained by their slave jobs and just want to relax while staying in touch with 'the herd'. colin isn't stupid. he openly admits to the product he's serving. he's the most self-reflective and open sports talk personality. he's informed on some things and not on others, like most people.

    like with movies, people somehow fail go distinguish between the products.

    Not even sure how anyone can sit there and listen to Shitlock speak. He fucking sucks. Him and Broussard only have a platform these days because they're friends with Cowturd.

    it's not the sports talk shows fault. they cover the sports. so if a Marxist puppet like Colin Kapaernick decides to 'bend the knee' and the President of US decides to insert himself into the sport, they will talk about it. it's to the interest of their audience.

    now, if they were like Jemele Hill and tweeting about Trump being racist, that's another matter.

    No. I just refuse to listen to them. It's laughable that you're on here championing for them. But I just looked at your location and now I can understand.

    There's no such thing as a true Warriors fan. Don't be silly.

    The internet hasn't helped either. ESPN failing to recognize web as the latest/greatest platform is a big problem.

    Whitlock is legit terrible. He makes Stephen A. Smith seem informed, and reasonable.

    i'm not championing them. i'm telling out of the garbage, their's is the most palatable. i'm giving you my thoughts on why i watch it, since everyone is incredulous to why people would fathom listening to them. they present mainstream from 3 different point of views

    He looks like that dude at a Jazz Bar that calls people cat, and riffs on and on about what jazz is really all about.

    AKA, a complete jackass.

    I tried to tell the haters. I remember arguing with like 5 people at once about him on this site.

    What a postseason run this has been though, went in with zero expectations. Thought they would squeak by the Bucks and then lose to Philly.

    Great performance so far in this series, but I feel like his adjustments against Philly are more impressive than what he's done in this series. Cleveland is just trash, man. They're Bron plus Smush Parker level scrubs. Toronto's mental deficiencies has us thinking Cleveland is better than they are.

    It’s a good problem to have but if the Celtics make the finals this season (looking good) then it’s going to be tricky to integrate Kyrie and Hayward next season, someone has to take a minutes cut and there’s a real chance that Kyrie + Hayward is not as good as Rozier + Brown / Tatum.

    I suppose next year you bring it back and see what happens maybe target a deadline trade. You need to bolster your front court. And where Marcus Smart looked like the odd man out before playoffs, he now seems to be an indispensable part of this team.

    Going to be tricky navigating this situation, but I have to say I think I like the Rozier, Brown, Tatum combo for the long run, crazy length and athleticism, smart basketball, no dribble happy turnover prone hero ball.
