    Good for Boomer asking those questions.

    Way to go, Boomer. I mean, it's obvious listening to Rick that he absolutely kisses the NBA's ass, but can he HOST a prime-time program dealing with it? He might not have the on-air presence that some of his columns do.

    You think Reilly kisses the NBA's ass? I don't see that. He's never shown any extensive knowledge of the NBA at all. In fact, I think he's into superstars more than the actual sports they play. He's the type who would hang out with Schilling, but couldn't tell you who the Red Sox setup man is, for instance. But I do agree with you that Reilly might not be as effective on the air as he is in print.
  8. The dude's got a fetish for anyone who pays attention to the NBA, and as you pointed out, Reilly is not one of those people.

    Save for the nets movement and the Jordan column from 2001, I can't even recall the last time he even wrote about the NBA. Steveu's just a freak for this stuff; if Beano Cook gets arrested for indecent exposure next week at a Shoney's, Steveu will have the first reply in a post talking about how he knew Beano was going downhill once he started talking too much about Baron Davis.

    The fact that Boomer Esiason was interviewing Dan Patrick says something significant about our industry. I'm not sure what that thing is, though.
  10. That it's all turned into a big fish market?

    It will be interesting to see if Patrick is a better columnist than Reilly is on TV...

    Everything Patrick said is accurate...
