I'm generally not a fan of a three man booth, but I loathe when the third person isn't adding any insight. The extent of Simpson's 'analysis' was that the Heat are really good, are capable of putting together big runs, and Lebron James gets preferential treatment from the officials. He "did fine", in that he gave Jackson and McDonough statements to follow-up upon. Other than that, I think it seemed forced.

Of course it seemed forced because it was. But taking it for what it was I think he did an okay job. My only complaint was his "crowd analysis." Coming back from the second half he mentioned how the Golden State crowd had an "impact" in the first half and mentioned the energy of the crowd a few times throughout the telecast. Granted I do think crowds can have some impact during the games but Bill gives "the crowd" too much credit. It's like if he mentions something enough then people will start to believe it. That's what we love/hate about our boy.

I know plenty of Simpson sycophants and yes, they love that about him. Gives them validation for acting like fuckwads at games because then they're just making their fan impact.

watched the first half - i thought he was nervous at the start and settled down after the first TV timeout in the 1st quarter. I was enjoying it by the 2nd quarter. Better than Kornheiser, which is the most appropriate comparison i think. I was worried he would go mr. tony's route and tell random rambling stories in the middle of gameplay, etc...but he did a good job keeping it short.
