Bill Simmons takes jab at Skip Bayless

  Skip Bayless caused plenty of controversy when he recklessly called Johnny Manziel a liar and an alcoholic on First Take.  Of course, ESPN did nothing to discipline their golden child for publicly spouting such wild and dangerous allegations because Skip Bayless is secretly the most powerful man at ESPN.

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.
