I can't think of anything more Chuck Diesel than this.


This so much this. Also, I like to imagine a young Chuck was honing his comedy chops and using a Borat voice the whole time.

Know it’s already been mentioned but Bill and Russillo have great chemistry. They’re both so amusingly passionate about the NBA

Read on Twitter


The Simmons pod last night talked about NBA media. Simmons made the comment that guys like Zach Lowe would spend all day reaching out and talking to people and building relationships. He'd go to a game and talk with 9 different people. Average reporter only talks to three. Said it took Lowe a decade of work to get here, but he's here.

As we hope our local trio are able to grow, perhaps it would make sense for Matt V. to develop a relationship with Mike Lindeman of Excel Sports, so he can break this stuff a few days earlier.

Again, realize this stuff is really hard work. But this is a good sample of why a lot of us on this board wish our local guys could develop this type of coverage.

It's like any other job. Some people want to excel and are curious about their craft. Others just look at it as a job and don't question or see the big picture. I would also guess that these guys don't get paid a ton so their monetary incentive to go the extra mile isn't strong.

Harlan takes a lot of heat, but this is still one of my favorite dunk calls.

Say what you want about Simmons, but him ripping a Middleton Max on the latest pod while the local Twitter influencers continue to pass the Kool-Aid is another reason I still listen.

:lol: Simmons literally followed that up with saying why not offer a four-year max and he thinks the Bucks should be trying to bring everyone back.

Agreed. She's incredibly talented and will be missed. Best of luck to her.

Damn, first the Doobie Brothers broke up and now Katie splits. This is what happens when LED are afraid to go into luxury tax territory.

Damn, it was pretty clear she wasn't going to be in Milwaukee for very long but I was hoping she'd stick around for another year or two. Suppose that's the way it works in sports media, have to jump on those opportunities quick when they come around.

I hope we get another talented sideline reporter and not some schlub like Telly. I know there's a lot of you that like the guy but I think we can do way better.

Damn Katie!!! Getting a little misty in here and I've only "known" you for less than a year.

This is actually a big loss. The fluidity in which she conducted an interview. The way she actually listened to the answers and responded with strong follow-up questions. She never seemed to be forcing anything. It was always very natural. This sucks. I blame Khris Middleton's contract. :D

If the Bucks had any balls they’d make Gery Woelfel the new sideline reporter.
