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.

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) https://t.co/AKDyVbBNRe — Robert Littal (@BlkSportsOnline) June 13, 2014...
