Leave it to Bill Simmons to be one of the first sports analysts to break out a Manti Te’o fake girlfriend reference. Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green has been incredibly inconsistent this season. Every time he rips off a streak of games where he puts up 15-plus points and throws down a dunk like this, it seems like he comes back with three more where he is a complete non-factor. Friday night’s loss to the Chicago Bulls was one of those stinkers. In a game where the Celtics lost by a point in overtime and could have used a boost from their bench, Green scored just two points in 19 minutes. After the game, Simmons pointed out that Green was invisible — in a way only “The Sports Guy” could. “Jeff Green, he’s been invisible,” Simmons said. “I mean, I keep waiting for him to start dating Manti Te’o.” Michael Wilbon did not approve, but I got a cheap laugh out of it. If you believe that Te’o was not in on the hoax after hearing stories like this, you might be less apt to crack jokes at his expense. I’m actually starting to believe Te’o, but he still deserves to be made fun of for being so damn naive.
