    Brad Stevens: President of Basketball Ops

    The player development under Stevens has been phenomenal as well. Guys like Kornet, Hauser, Pritchard have all taken big leaps. When I watched a lot of games at the end of the season where the guys on the end of the bench got a lot of PT, they all could play; defend, extend the floor, shoot...

    Shertenlieb Show? Rich Radio? - mornings on ZLX

    Good for Rich and it's good for Boston radio. The more talent on the radio - and there is less and less with each passing day - the better for the listeners and city.

    Toucher and Hardy: The new 98.5 morning show

    I believe his parents now live in TN or did at one point, so the team/player may be on a bit more on his radar b/c of that. He's milking the one guy he knew, that the Pats took and trashed him; 100% agree on overkill.

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    The classic Friday afternoon news dump and this is HUGE news, he was the machine behind ESPN for years and years. When most ESPN insider news was reported elsewhere, high % chance came from him. McAfee called him out on it but he's been leaking stuff and the 'espn source' for years and years.

    So long, Framingham Lou (and other WEEI discussions)

    Pure speculation on my part as I know nothing but I wonder if we'll hear something on April 1. As it's the start of a new quarter and if Rich has any non-disclosure agreements in place may be up then.

    Autry's Army - 2023-24 SU Hoops

    If they beat Clemson on the road and get a win in the ACC tourney they may have a chance of getting in to the tourney. BUT as other's have pointed out whether they get in or not, I give Autry a lot of credit and the program seems to be headed in the right direction. And that is really all...

    Toucher and Hardy: The new 98.5 morning show

    Ha, that's great. Wallach seems like a good guy, but he really doesn't add anything. He mainly just regurgitates obvious stuff or opinions that are already out there. He does not come across as a dumb guy but he doesn't put a creative spin/angle on things either. He is good at sucking up...

    RIP Toucher and Rich Show ... It was fun while it lasted

    From the BigLead: Mike Greenberg Called a 'No-Talent Prick' By Fred Toucher During Radio Rant Good for Fred, I say; let people speak what they really think and not be vanilla cookie cutters....see Mike Greenberg.

    Any swim parent on deck?

    My daughter got a D1 scholarship for swimming! She is entering her senior year of high school and committed last October. She's the only kid I know that turned down two Ivy offers for another non-Ivy school but she had a bad experience on the official visit at one, and the other didn't feel...

    30 for 30

    Apparently the 30-30 Walton documentary was originally going to be on the 77 Blazers. But there is so much material on Walton they extended it and made it about him and the Blazers. After watching it, I can now see how that played out and why such a heavy focus on the 77 Blazers. Random side...

    The Athletic sells to the New York Times

    A few months back I went to cancel my reoccurring subscription to The Athletic; set to autorenewal in August, so was cancelling the autorenewal. When I did they offered me a dirt cheap renewal rate and also threw in the NY TIMES games as part of it. I now do - or try to - the NY TIMES...

    Doc Rivers fired as 76ers coach

    I liked him as a commentator, provided insightful analysis etc. But the pitch/tone of his natural voice, made him difficult to hear on broadcasts. But that was a number of years back, maybe they can adjust his voice better now in the mix etc.

    Thoughts about media types who don't have their own threads

    And ESPN announcing they're starting the layoffs of 7,000 and head of NBC Universal getting canned. Quite the media happenings day.

    RIP Toucher and Rich Show ... It was fun while it lasted

    Wallach seems like a nice guy, he's just not a very interesting guy....and he's captain obvious.

    So long, Framingham Lou (and other WEEI discussions)

    Agree. Whether you liked them or not Dennis and Callahan brought in big ratings, at the end not as big but still enough where good money was rolling. When money is flowing people will turn a blind eye. The current morning show on WEEI does not bring in big ratings, currently 11th combined...
