    Astonishing. Astounding. Awesome. Simmons examinates 50 years of amazing happened with sarcasm, humour, some trivial anecdote, a lot of well-thought opinions and the simple love of the game. TBOB is a basketball fan's wet dream, the book that ends all discussions about some issues and raises a million more discussions. And the recurring zings at Kobe, Kareem, Vince Carter are simply hilarious. But now I expect Simmons to rewrite Dirk Nowitzki's Piramyd paraghrap and raise him at least at level 4. Come on Bill, you know what you have to do.

    Productive Sport Guy...

    Bill Simmons一直是我最喜歡的ESPN專欄作家,他應該也算是ESPN的王牌寫手了...

    他的產量非常之大,專欄之外還有podcast..而且他很少重複自己的點子.總是還能不斷創新...他的絕招就是結合pop culture和Sport,這個風格也引起了不少模仿者.

    這本書一出我就預訂了, 老婆幫我去便利商店拿的時候抱怨說很重,結果剛看到我也傻眼了,比磚頭還厚實...七百多頁精裝本,把整個NBA歷史和球員以他的角度精細頗析了一輪,相當過癮,我都是隨便翻一頁開始看..隨時都可以看下去. ...(continue)

    他的產量非常之大,專欄之外還有podcast..而且他很少重複自己的點子.總是還能不斷創新...他的絕招就是結合pop culture和Sport,這個風格也引起了不少模仿者.

    這本書一出我就預訂了, 老婆幫我去便利商店拿的時候抱怨說很重,結果剛看到我也傻眼了,比磚頭還厚實...七百多頁精裝本,把整個NBA歷史和球員以他的角度精細頗析了一輪,相當過癮,我都是隨便翻一頁開始看..隨時都可以看下去..

    我認為現在台灣所謂的NBA專家都有一個非常大的問題,就是比賽看的太少了,以他們看比賽的場數我根本不認為做的出什麼好的評論.感覺就是很"虛",只會看數據講話或是抄襲國外觀點,更多的是亂評一氣.有在follow Sport Guy的都知道,他現在跟比賽還是跟的很狂熱,現場和轉播看不停,他的論點不一定都正確但是我認為那是很"實在"的論點..有料!!

    不知道這本書再台灣有沒有第二個人有啊?真好奇..哈哈..
