Bill Simmons. Read his Grantland article. He does a great job of dissecting the decision.
Am I the only one who fucking hates Bill Simmons?
Simmons is a good NBA historian, and that's about it.
His articles are pretty tired nowadays, but he brought us Grantland which has a bunch of better writers to read, so I give him props for that.
Did you read the McConnaughey Emmy acceptance speech that was posted this week. That Shit was hilarious.
Simmons' articles are decent but as an on-camera analyst he's so insufferable. But yeah he's not nearly as bad as Broussard and his endless mystery "sources" for bogus signing rumors and meetings, aka himself.
I am not sure how to feel about this, it is similar emotions to when we signed Boozer. We swung for the fences and missed on the big names and grabbed a consolation prize that is very good player but questionable fit. To me there's players out there who I would have taken first but I am not upset as I have always rated Pau. I just hope Taj Gibson is cool with this.
At least there has been a flurry of activity instead of the random conjecture of the last few weeks, some really interesting moves being made. I am still confused by why the fuck Isiaah Thomas went to PHX though?
Indiana is imploding. They're now even getting worse in the offseason. Charlotte, with the signing of Lance Stephenson, is looking like a top-five team in the East.
I'ma ball at the mall shuttin' down the sea wall
Today I watched the Pau Gasol introductory presser and I immediately see why he is so respected as a person over and above his rep as a player. I haven't really paid any attention to him off the court and it is nice to see such a smart, engaging and humble professional athlete.
