I read the book when it first came out and I read the revised version when that came out as well. Whenever you talk about the pyramid I listen. No matter what player. I’m hoping to hear podcasts like Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, & Kevin Garnett. As well as other legends like Magic & Bird.

The BoB is one of the best, if not THE BEST basketball podcast series. Highly recommend to any basketball fan. You will not be disappointed!

Very good
Hungry Bear via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/20
This podcast has turned out to be a transparent attempt to boost Ringer podcast subscription numbers in advance of the sale. It epitomizes the checked out era of Bill Simmons content - lazy, counterfactual, and simply a slog to listen to.

Bill, so good so far however I am hoping to get better content here... the knicks and Dwight are fun and interesting but I need more pyramid podcasts with some updated newer stuff. Lebron, Duncan, kawhi and Durant.

Yes
Pass it to Luka he’s gonna juke ya
Big Dawg Pasa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/20
When Bill introduced this concept, it was sold as a flagship project for The Ringer that would be well researched, thoughtful, and include guests that BS would not normally have. Instead it’s Joe House and Employee X talking to Bill about meaningless games or moments without a semblance of care...Read full review »

I don’t miss an episode. I’m interested in some more than others, but I’ve ended up enjoying all of them.
BrienNoonan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/20
I love the different categories and player breakdowns. However I wish you could do new ones more often
HD Sight & Sound via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/20
Bill, I have been reading you for decades and now listening. This episode of the night Kobe called you may be the very best stuff you have ever done. I, like you, am a Boston sports guy so never was a fan of Kobe or the Lakers. I preferred MJ. Now that I have hit my 50s I look back and...Read full review »
DJInHawaii via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/20
As a Lakers fan, I never thought you were really fair to Kobe as a columnist. But this pod washes that all away. A real tribute. As the kids say, you a real one for this Bill! I have no idea what that means. Thank you so much for recording this though. I am going to relisten to it from time to...Read full review »

I found the background music clips so distracting that I had to shut it off.
Barrnger via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/20
Best podcast. Amazing idea Bill. Thanks for talking some Raptors while we are relevant! <3
Stew461 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/05/20
Great listen, if you have a passion for basketball then you need to listen to this pod. Another Simmons classic
cags54 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/20
Just wow! Great work Bill, as always, but this was the greatest podcast of all time.
Man like Shark via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/04/20
Great podcast with Basketball history and modern day reactions. Great producing by nephew Kyle too
cfarm23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/20
Awesome listen for anyone who’s a lover of hoops!
Torres_Chris via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/20
A lot of interesting guests and information, but be prepared to hear about the next New England Patriots at least 4,223 times per podcast.
Mauiguy1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/20
Hey there Bill, I’ve been reading and listening to you for the past decade, and at first, it began as a hate-activity. I loved to hate your homerism, your takes on the Lakers, and whenever a Boston team won a ring, I loved to hate you. But really, it was the way you express ideas, both written...Read full review »
Cool9888 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/20
Bill You are such a homer and are so biased in your Boston fandom, it’s made me hate all Boston sports. However I do enjoy this podcast and the knicks 99 pod was my favorite Over the past few years
sg murthy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/20
Hate to give It a 3, but I’d expect more “experts” on these episodes. Feel like he’s relying too much on his Ringer staff as guests. To me, it’s the BS Podcast 2.0, not the Book of Basketball 1.0
davidg708 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/20
Looking forward to hearing discuss Kobe 😪
swpuente via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/27/20
Bill you continue to amaze me... long time reader and love your podcasts! Keep up the great work!
Jnewt83 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/20
Such a great show! Can’t wait for my next fix!!
ProudNPowerful via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/20
Not enough
Brooks Valentine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/20
For a basketball fiend this is more or less exactly the fix you’re seeking. Great guests with genuine insight and real passion for the subjects and games. Also Sports Rewatchables is a delight. If I have to nitpick: as usual for Ringer pods the intro theme is a shambles but the content more than...Read full review »

I am a decayed long fan but the huge liberal self confidence is a downer. I listen to your sports commentary and put up with your anti Trump lunacy. At the end keep it up and let’s all get along.
lido91123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/20
I hope Ben Simmons (the son) gets royalties or Amazon bucks for use of his song!
LL Cool NBA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/20
Enjoyed this. Isn’t Klay Reggie now?
CJM_72 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/20
I love the book, the Book of Basketball, Bill Simmons is the ultimate guide through the annals of NBA history! Any fan of the game should go buy it! I’m also a fan of the podcast but wasn’t sure about this concept...one of my favourite books of all time into a podcast? Could it really work? I was...Read full review »

Best basketball pod out there.. Needs to be marketed more/better! More people would love this pod if they knew about it!!
NBAaddict via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/20
Love this podcast but because it’s good discussion about various basketball people, trends and games. Shea was such a bleeding Reggie Miller fan it makes the discussion boring. I knew what these guys were going to say. That’s not good. Go listen to the others so far—skip this one. Nothing new or...Read full review »

BoB
Thanks Bill
sgill23 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/12/20
Listened to the Nash episode. Great, fascinating stuff...when Bill let Nash talk. I just wish Bill would shut up sometimes and let his first talk.

Best basketball podcast I’ve listened to
kamjayjack via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/20
All of their predictions for this season. Lol.
Kylejbales via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/07/20
Thank you for making this pod. It’s everything an NBA fan needs to learn about today's NBA with interesting history context, all while being entertained. I suggest any NBA fan subscribe, download, and listen to every minute. Keep ‘em coming.Read full review »
aarwynn via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/06/20
I stumbled upon this podcast. The content, humor, history, and discussions are excellent. By far the best podcast I have listen to. Excellent.
GrayHairJoe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/20
Even though BS is big time, he still connects with the everyday NBA fan. I sometimes disagree with his opinion, but the fact this content is here for free instead of luminary or an ebook format is incredible and deserves nothing short of 5 stars and a review. Mr Simmons. Truly appreciate your...Read full review »

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 »

Meh
To relate this Podcast to the Book of Basketball is a joke. I loved the book and enjoy listening to Bill on his normal podcast. This is just lame and not in the style of the book.
jacoby106 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/29/19
I read the Book of Basketball about 2 years ago and i really liked it. But what bothered me was how Dirk, our german national Hero, was judged. Of course the Book was written before Dallas Championship Run in 2011, so i was happy to hear how Bill thinks about Dirk now. 5 Stars for both!
Kaiser jj via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 12/25/19
Bill is an old cook. He tries to apply his “rewatchables” formula to everything which doesn’t work. And he thinks whatever he says is absolute and right. Never hears any other arguments or sides of his guests. I loved his book of basketball read it cover to cover twice. But this podcast lacks the...Read full review »
Greg Prew via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/19
Really good pod however, this should be called the Spurs fans get kicked in the nuts pod. Next three episodes are The Ray Allen Corner 3 pod followed by the Derrick Fisher.4 pod and finally the Kawhi Leonard lies his way out of San Antonio Pod.
Smokey Lives G via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/19
Listening to Brian Windhorst felate Lebron and make excuse after excuse for his shortcomings was disgusting, only made worse by Bill just sitting in his hands. Great podcast but cmon, check your LeStan please.
JasonRoseEh via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/22/19
Bill breaking down games, situations, teams, etc. at its peak. Great pod for basketball fans.
kylesoderberg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/22/19
This is just simmons jerkin himself
I loooove it via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/19
This is an incredible podcast for all hoop fans. Regardless what you think of Bill he IS the podfather. So much behind the scenes insight on this one I can’t wait to get the notifications that a new episode is up
DillonBloom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/19
Would’ve been 5 stars with such a compelling latest episode but Windhorst talking over the host is extremely annoying. Let Simmons finish please!
