Transcript from his podcast sit-down with Kevin Durant.

ETA: This was really bad. I guess Bill was able to speak bc he was giving hand rather than mouth?
Simmons: Anxiety? You were playing great!

Simmons: All right, let’s take Game 5. I was sitting pretty close
I'm Bill Hernandez.
Simmons: In Game 1, there was this play that everybody missed, but I think you scored and then Kyrie had the ball, and you just decided to guard him full court. You took him the whole way and he ended up throwing it off the backboard, I think. But I was like, “Man, KD is locked in. Now he thinks he can guard Kyrie full court.”
Everyone missed it. But me <3
Simmons: He got really angry. I was scared. I was scared for everybody in my section.
I'm a baller.
Simmons: I think you guys were gonna win that game. Even before Kawhi got hurt.
I knew you could do it!
Simmons: Word on the street is you might stay. Why would you leave one of the best teams anybody has ever seen? That would be a bad career move.
Listen to me. I know about bad career moves.
Simmons: Once a team’s winning, you end getting two or three of these David West guys every year. And it’s not championship chasing — I mean, there’s a little bit of it. But the guys near the end of their career wanna be on a good team.
I know you just wanted to be on a competitive team. You only got to Game 7 of the WCF last year. That must have been terrible.
Simmons: Here’s the thing: There’s been a lot of teams that the season ended and everybody said, “Oh my god, this is a dynasty.” This happens all the time. It’s really hard to win a championship. You need a lot of things to go right. I mean, think about when Zaza crashed into your leg. If he crashes into it 1 inch higher, you’re not in the Finals.
I am telling you, I love you. You did the right thing.
Simmons: The Sixers traded for Moses Malone in ’82; they had been in two, three finals and they traded for the MVP. This is the league.
Again, dont worry about your legacy. This was KD's team!
Simmons: They created the cap space to get Iguodala. They created the cap space to get you. They went and bought the McCaw pick.
This was good for the league! Want me to use more spit?

The worse, man.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

Haha terrible. I'm sure I'd do the same thing if I was in his shoes, but those excerpts are legitimately terrible.

That line made me Lidge. That transcript made think of this:

Balls: I know a guy who came home after high school one day to over hear his mom and dad having a 3some with another lady. He actually went to beat off during it in his room.

That was good. I also enjoyed "want me to use more spit?"

TY for sharing, Bald.

I'm sure glad bill has destroyed the old paradigm of sports media where they blatantly suck up to athletes they like and/or give them accesss. whatta rebel.

The actual podcast is a little bit better than the transcript, but not much.

Oh, and Durant is doing a podcast miniseries on The Ringer's network. Explains why he was willing to put up with Bill. Mystery solved.
