ESPN NBA analyst Bill Simmons joined the show to talk about the Finals and more.
Simmons weighed in on comparisons between LeBron James and Michael Jordan. “It’s in play now,” Simmons said. Simmons thinks LeBron could play 20 years and the numbers will add up.
“The expectations we have of him as a player are unrealistic,” Simmons said. He noted we expect him to score over 30, guard the best player on the court, rebound, etc. Simmons says players don’t do that.
Simmons talked about his role on the NBA pre- and post-game show. He said it took a long time to get used to, but he feels they have a nice rhythm going.
