We Read Bill Simmons, So You Don’t Have To

We Read Bill Simmons, So You Don’t Have To

Bill Simmons recaps the NBA off-season in a two-part epic on ESPN.com. Minus all the quotes from "Almost Famous," his laughable choice as the best movie of the decade (off the top of my head – I'd take "Remember the Titans"), it's a good article about the NBA. He's not a big fan of the [...]

Vegas still likes the Lakers

Vegas still likes the Lakers

Saying Vegas doesn't know something about gambling is like saying Stephen Hawking doesn't know something about physics.  Not very likely, even when you think something is obviously wrong. But I can't help but argue with the men behind some of Vegas' biggest sports books… who currently have the Lakers installed as the favorites next year… [...]

This may have something to do with the Marquis Daniels delay but it wouldn't be an either/or thing. Boston would like to get both of them. The Bucks are trying to trade Bowen before his [...]
