    Simmons "70% sports and 30% pop culture?" That's interesting a refreshing because it seems he's gone the 70% pop culture/reality tv direction the past couple or so years.

      Disagree. Maybe he has dedicated podcasts to TV and movies….so what I would say is just skip those. Otherwise, he's still an excellent sportswriter when he writes (see: his NBA Trade Value column).

      I do wish he would stop carrying Blake Griffin's water, though…

    Did anyone else catch that Peter May–who was no fan of Danny Ainge when he (May) still worked for the Globe–for about the 2,347th time, mentioned the 2004 (!) trade that Ainge helped facilitate which sent Rasheed Wallace to Detroit? May has never, ever let anyone forget Ainge's role in that trade, never mind the fact that Boston was going nowhere that season, basically, and Ainge actually acquired some decent assets in the exchange. Nice to see that even when these guys leave the Globe, their agendas and age-old biases travel with them.
