Bill Simmons: Lakers Legit Threat To Land Melo

ESPN’s Bill Simmons is reporting that the L.A. Lakers made a huge impression on Carmelo Anthony, and have turned the sweepstakes into the race for the Knicks star into a three team battle. Hearing the Lakers made a MAJOR impact on Melo this week – it's now a legit 3-way battle between LA/Chi/NYK to land him. Crazy NBA weekend. — Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) July 5, 2014...

Bill Simmons Was Not Happy About The Hornets Trading Shabazz Napier To The Heat

In what I’m sure was some crazy coincidence, the Miami Heat managed to acquire LeBron James’ favorite player in this year’s draft class in Shabazz Napier. Napier was selected by the Charlotte Hornets at No. 24 overall but then traded to the Heat, much to the dismay of Bill Simmons. After getting caught fist pumping the Celtics’ selection of James Young earlier in the night...

Bill Simmons Caught Fist Pumping Celtics Selection Of James Young

Bill Simmons has never been one to hide his bias as a Boston Celtics fan, but at least he tried to on Thursday night when the C’s selected James Young with the 17th overall pick. Unfortunately for Bill, ESPN’s cameras cut to him a little too soon and caught him in the middle of a fist pump. He seemed to be quite embarrassed and caught off guard, later saying “I’m so mad that...

Bill Simmons asks fortune telling machine about Kevin Love going to Celtics

There might not be a bigger Boston Celtics fan than ESPN’s Bill Simmons and with rumors that Kevin Love might want to be traded to Boston, I have a sinking suspicion that he would be overjoyed by that fact. Simmons while on the road for the NBA Finals ran into a Zoltar Fortune Telling machine and decided to ask the machine if Kevin Love was going to the Celtics. The machine’s...

Bill Simmons Salty About His Lack of Speaking Time on TV (Video)

It’s no secret, ESPN’s NBA Coutdown crew doesn’t hold a candle to TNT, but challenging each other on the set in a rude way is unacceptable and shows just how incompatible this crew is. LOL RT @cjzero: Bill Simmons says “Do I get to speak now?” and Sage Steele just shakes her head (h/t @SBN_Ricky) — Robert Littal (@BlkSportsOnline) June 13, 2014...

Bill Simmons offers "the most logical offer" for Kevin Love

Our most famous non-Wahlberg Celtics Super Fan Bill Simmons spoke about the state of the Celtics in his NBA related mailbag. It should come as no shock that securing the most sought after player in the NBA right now is going to be challenging. Danny Ainge has amassed 17 picks over the next few seasons and a team full of assets to pull off some big time moves, so even if the asking...

Drunk videobomber attracts security

Bill Simmons was giving some postgame comments following Game 7 of the NBA Finals in which the Heat won the NBA title, and a possibly inebriated fan tried his best to interrupt him. As you can see by the video, Bill wasn’t phased, and he took to Twitter to reinforce that sentiment. Well done, Bill. Is there video of the drunk maniac who jumped behind me during the live SportsCenter...
