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! Stephen in Dallas PS: Can we give Luka the 2020 MVP?

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

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...Read full review »

Love the premise and the content...for the first half. But man do these episodes drag on. I checked on the Steph episode today expecting to be near the end, and wasn’t even halfway done yet. Brevity, Bill!

First this is still a 5-star review because I love Simmons and a podcast update to the original BoB. The monologues compare to when Simmons was still a writer. Some awesome guests as well. Let me preface my next comment- I love Joe House, he is a great guest on Simmons regular pod but he isn’t a...Read full review »

I’ve been reading Bill Simmons or listening to his podcasts since high school. He is a brilliant and funny guy, but his criticism/negging of Wade and LeBron is borderline pathological. Wade played brilliantly in 06, and he is not a selfish “hero ball” type player like Simmons suggests. The worst...Read full review »

I don’t usually leave pod reviews. Was looking forward to this one and was disappointed. The guests are great, but they hardly get to talk. Loaded with the usual Simmons biases. Got to the 10th episode and couldn’t take it anymore. I know you want to show off your kid, but the intro is painful....Read full review »

Marc Stein is an absolute jerk, idk why bill still keeps him on. He’s constantly interrupting Bill, and doesn’t acknowledge anything Simmons says when he’s on his soap box. Sick of this tool. That said, I love the show, it’s like listening to the old BS pod before he forced his entire staff on us.

A must for basketball fans. Sure some of the points are retreads for regular listeners of the BS Pod, but there’s enough new stuff here to keep it captivating, especially when it digs into Shaq-Kobe Lakers, the OKC vs Spurs, etc. Minor quibbles like JA Adande’s constant defending of everything...Read full review »

I love it. And getting an update to the Book of Basketball this way, rather than making us buy another edition of the book is a nice, free high five. Thanks Bill.

Nobody better than Simmons on the NBA. Pump this into my veins. Only thing that made it better is tic toc (or melatonin) on the theme song. Amazing!!

The Podfather delivers once again. Matt

Love the pod ofc but why is Curry in the 20’s ??? How can u say there have been 20 greater players than him in NBA history that’s Ridiculous.
Meital💋 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/19
Nothing illustrates it more than this “Rewatchables, NBA Edition” guised as an update to his seminal work, “The book of Basketball”.
bobibouche via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/19
There really isn’t anything in sports Media like Simmons on the NBA. He exists in a state of flux between headshaking superfan, Jack Whitaker level historian, and analytical evangelist, his love for the game shines like ETs heart light. He needs to be back in front of the cameria, talking non...Read full review »

Episodes can’t be released fast enough. Eating up this content. Great job, Bill & Co. Only Con: Needs more Russillo

Very well thought out and crafted while still holding onto that Bill Simmons style of podcast. Love it!

Intro music is amongst the worst stuff I’ve encountered in this world

Bill Simmons your a amazing basketball mind love your podcasts thank you for all the free content
Guiseppe 88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/19
My kids by now think Bill Simmons is a friend of mine, so often do they hear his voice. I was curious about Bill’s experiment to follow up his book as a podcast rather than as an old fashioned book. The result is mixed, I think. This is a good podcast and it’s about basketball: so there’s no much...Read full review »

Bill Simmons’ everyman’s way of talking basketball is so fun to listen to.
jrgray99 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/19
One of the best pods out there!
slim BC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/19
I love Simmons and the BoB was a joy to read. When Gladwell suggested a podcast format for the update I was excited cuz of the potential it had. But this format just seems uncreative and slapdash leaving the segments and totality of the project merely meh when a little more organization, elbow...Read full review »

Great pod, why watch every game ever and read every book ever when this guy already has.
Garfishsalard via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/21/19
But he should hire a Shannon sharpe type black guy for the ringer seem like mostly nerds and eight guys and out that guy with Chris Vernon
Brightsmilealex via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/19
bill is a fun basketball personality with a lot of good takes. his book is iconic.. and yet i’m not sure why he even has his guests in the show with them. he mostly just shares opinion after opinion and hardly gives them time to react to them before moving on to another opinion. bill, let your...Read full review »

This podcast might be my favorite to listen to now. I bought the Book of Basketball and loved the book, now listening to the podcast makes it even better. Love the setup of having one podcast about the player and then doing a rewatchables podcast to finish up the “chapter” for that player/team.
Saffo937 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/19
Can’t get enough of this. Hoping this will be a long running series!! P.S idc how renowned Zach Lowe is ... he is so wrong about OKC and the luxury tax. They messed up with Harden and had NO choice but to go over 5 years later otherwise Presti would have been fired on the spot. Can’t make the...Read full review »

Great use of the podcast medium and his Rolodex of NBA friends.

Man this is a beautiful way to review the evolution of basketball. Om watching all of these plus more. Greatest basketball/history pod lol. Another win for the podfather. The only thing that would make it even more astronomical is if Bill watched the game with the actual highlighted player....Read full review »

This podcast feels like a conversation series on the best basketball players who ever played.
Bluebomberman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/19
I love how this podcast does not just talk about basketball in the present. It talks about the early 2010s and 2000s as we can now objectively look back at important points in NBA history and see where the shifts in play, and culture occurred. Also, Great job with the topics; I would review the...Read full review »

Awesome to listen to basketball thoughts from Bill, however no music during intrusive ads deserves nothing more than 2 stars. I will change rating if this is fixed.
Mmarkus M. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/19
Basically, it’s the Rewatchables podcast format grafted onto an NBA opinion show. Early returns are mixed for me. Unlike the Rewatchables podcast, this one doesn’t have fun categories or nearly the level of entertaining pop culture criticism. Strip away the pop culture metaphors and Simmons...Read full review »

This podcast filled a spot I didn’t know I needed. So freakin good. People who rate this below a 5 are silly - free content from bill and his best in the business friends on topics others aren’t covering in nearly as much depth or with nearly as much thought. He can be hyperbolic, but that’s what...Read full review »

Is this Simmons’ kid or something signing the intro? Lol love this podcast but the intro is whack

Awesome job! Just a bit of a pain to share with non-regular listeners with the theme song. They hear the start of it and go “What the .... am I listening to again? Why is some kid that’s reading a paper singing?” And turn it off. I had this happen 3 times so far so it’s worth mentioning.

The best basketball podcast out there. Bill Simmons at his best.

É fenomenal fazer uma viagem pelo tempo. Se o livro já foi bom, esta versão 2.0 atualizada será ainda melhor
RP Silva via Apple Podcasts · Portugal · 11/16/19
Best Podcast on the Internet. Tops BS's regular Podcast. Fantastic to hear him read the thoughtful written pieces he throws in, & his guests are superb. He's the best mind in sports & contemporary culture out there.Read full review »
