Longtime sportswriter not a fan of Draymond Green's inclusion on Inside the NBA

Back in January 2022, Draymond Green agreed to a multi-year deal with TNT to join the Inside the NBA crew and appear as a guest analyst whenever he was away from basketball. But not everyone is happy with his inclusion on the show, including sportswriter Bill Simmons.

"I’m dumbfounded that they added Draymond, like everybody’s like Inside The NBA, it’s the best show ever, why are you adding people to it? he said on his podcast. "Just take Draymond out of it, why are we adding any 5th human being to a show that we all loved already."
