Stop crying about China

Love the BS Pod, I’m not here to write a review more to just criticize the people writing reviews, particularly about this China thing. Stop saying Bill, and LeBron, and whoever else, are “supporting a dictatorship.” Bill is literally explaining the matter to you, the NBA makes billions of dollars off of China, of course they wouldn’t want to lose that. And he’s not agreeing with China, he’s saying that China doesn’t see their government as anything but normal, he is not wrong about how people in China aren’t begging for freedom, they support their country because it is a collectivist society in China. They view the Hong Kong protests as insighting violence, and rebellion. We, as Americans, of course understand where Hong Kong is coming from, but Xi and China government are not going to be happy about it, so of course they wouldn’t like their previous steady business partner the NBA bringing positive publicity to the protests. Bill is just discussing the facts, nothing more, and if you expect him to lie about it, you just haven’t listened to him a lot, Bill always says what his opinion is on pretty much any issue. Enes Kanter can’t guard Embiid tho

BS speaks the truth!

As a lifelong Laker fan I was ready to dump all over this show (not that anyone would care!) and the cascade of fanboy Celtic takes surely to obscure any value but I was dead wrong. I owe Bill a ton as over the last year of listening I’ve been massively entertained from the hilarity of Parent Corner and Half Baked Ideas to the crazy in depth interviews with stars such as Matt Damon and Sean Penn and, of course, the NBA bacchanalia sessions with Ryen Russillo. All I have to say is “keep it coming!”
