Will Stephen A. Smith Be Bill Simmons Replacement on NBA Countdown?

Last week it was announced that ESPN is giving Bill Simmons his own basketball show and he would be leaving ESPN’s “NBA countdown.” The spin was that this was Simmons idea, but the “New York Daily News” is saying he was booted because of a power struggle with Sage Steele. It’s not a secret that the “World Wide Leader” has struggled with NBA Countdown since it’s...

Stephen A. Smith May Replace Bill Simmons on NBA Countdown

I don’t know why they just don’t stick Stephen A. and Skip on NBA Countdown, because everything they have done in the past has failed. Oh and this nugget from the NY Daily News says Bill Simmons didn’t want to leave NBA Countdown he was basically kicked off the show for being a baby. The real headline here should have been this: Simmons loses power struggle to Sage Steele....

Bill Simmons Stomps His Feet Hard Enough to Get His Own TV Show

Captain Blowhard, will host his own NBA-themed show called “The Bill Simmons Ego Trip” “The Grantland Basketball Show.” This means that Simmons who never liked being on NBA Countdown and pouted over air time during the NBA Finals back in June, will leave the show so he can fill “The...

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...

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.

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...
