RE The Michael Wilbon quote; If you’re gonna play the role of talking head, you gotta be entertaining while you complain. For example, Bill Simmons. He gave us an all time great draft analyst moment yelping out a “WHOOOOOOOAAAAA!” when Anthony Bennett was drafted #1.
RE Jay Bilas beard; You gotta respect Bilas here. He’s pushing the boundaries of what his bosses will allow on TV and I respect it. His look can best be described as “middle aged man that just left the casino at 5am”
