Please tell him to stop saying “I thought”

I’ve been listening to Bill since the beginning. I’m a fan. But something happened a year ago. He cant stop saying “I thought”. Literally tens of times in each and every podcast.

“I thought”
It’s as bad as “uh” and “like.”

Bill, just make your statement. It’s not “I thought Tatum played great tonight”, it’s “Tatum played great tonight”

No more “I thought”

I Love Bill and The Podcast

But please. PLEASE. PLEASE. Stop having Joe House on, he has the worst insight. And never adds any value.

Staleberg ,

Lose Wos.

Our host is already an unreliable narrator when it comes to the Celtics and Patriots. Nobody wants a cocktail of lost his fastball Bill and know nothing Wos crapping on the entire NBA.
