So great. Never really knew Simmons as such a hoops historian.

Guest speakers are awesome. Love the stats and categories. As an avid hoops fan, growing up watching so much NBA since the 90s, BOB hits the spot!

Thanks for giving Dirk respect!

PS: Can we give Luka the 2020 MVP?

Great pod to accompany the book!

Can’t get enough of BS and his takes with his guests. The book was one of my favorite reads of all time. Looking forward to the updated Pantheon when it gets there. All the people complaining about the intro song need to get over it...it’s his son having some fun! If you are listening to a pod because of the intro, you need to find a new hobby.

Really need a different intro

I can’t even give this a chance until there is a better intro song
