    They really have become insufferable... the last Bill Simmons podcast really pushed me over the edge.

    I'm gonna 'hate-listen' to it. The "Houston Vs Everybody" segment. I can't wait for the drive home. They really are just some whiny little b*tches about the Rockets...

    I used to actually like Bill Simmons but now he is Enemy #1.

    Kevin O’Connor, OTOH, has been squarely in the Rockets corner and habitually defends James Harden.

    I dont listen to ringer podcasts not because they hate the Rockets, but because they have horrible opinions and they try to meme while still trying to act legit. If anything I find Simmons hate just fine because he at least tells everyone it's his opinion.

    What's much worse than what Bill Simmons does is someone like Windhorst, who has had an axe to grind against Morey ever since LeBron got called out on his schtick over the China issue.

    Wait what? I listened to this podcast last season, they never hated the Rockets. They actually picked them to win it all. What happened?

    I used to love their content but damn.... I just can’t support it after Bill Simmons little bitch rant

    I love KOC (teehee) and Sharks (I like to spell it like that).

    I actually prefer where Russillo is coming from with this. Simmons tries to rationalize his dislike against the Rockets, and it doesn't come across as very sincere (to me). As strongly as Russillo dislikes the style the Rockets have adopted, he's pretty fair in terms of describing the success of it. He even points out here that when Morey makes a move that media types go after him on, it generally proves to be successful.

    You can listen to about 5-10min of the Simmons “Houston vs everybody” podcast beginning at 1:00:00, 1hr in or so.

    He’s been subtly anti-city of Houston since the Super Bowl the first in Houston a while back. The past few months it’s been an all out war against us. The Astros scandal and the “unwatchable” Rockets beating his Celtics have certainly contributed. Ultimately though I would say the #1 reason is us Houston fans on Twitter, and I would include myself in there, will not let him walk back all the **** he has said against us over the year. We’re like angry wives in that we will never forget. In all honesty he should just quit Twitter, we are winning so hard against him. His sarcasm on the podcast today and mocking how we behave towards him (no we do not just shout “**** you Bill!” Over and over) is just his childish way of refusing to acknowledge how wrong he had been about our city and our teams over the years. I think if we keep the pressure up by throwing truth bombs in his face while the Astros and Rockets keep winning, he might just quit Twitter. HTown all the way baby!

    So you’re not gonna tell us what he actually said? I don’t want to listen to an hour or more of pure fckery. Can a brother get a synopsis? Some cliff notes?

    He like a lot of the basketball people he employs(not all) rely on parroting stupid, inaccurate twitter takes for the lulz rather than having a real basketball discussion.

    This podcast might be his most egregious. Almost felt like Skip or Screamin A where the take didn’t sound sincere.

    Did think it was funny how he talked about how “Rockets twitter” will never let anyone live this down if we do succeed and how annoying It will be....

    Like no ****? You mean kinda like how annoying it’s been that 99% of the media over the last 5 years has pleasured themselves to Rockets failures and have done nothing but say it will never work when the only thing the team has been guilty of is being the 2nd best team over a 5 year stretch where one of the best teams ever happened to exist at the same time.

    I'm only subscribed to Comedy Bang! Bang! and How Did This Get Made? I sometimes listen to Pardon My Take but they get repetitive.

    I like Russillo, I feel he’s far less emotional.

    P.S. The mismatch is the only NBA podcast worth listening to on their network and even then you have to suffer through Vernon’s terrible Memphis loving bs. Unless Simmons himself has someone smart on to talk hoops.

    It seemed petty just to be petty.

    "We’re like angry wives in that we will never forget."
    Amen, brother.
    Hence the old saying: "If she ain't happy, you ain't happy."

    I love the ringer and I think you are taking what they say 2 personally.

    What did he say?
