The Truth Hurts

Bill Simmons on ESPN Page 2:
"...the dopiest moment of the summer: The remarriage between Greg Ostertag and the Utah Jazz, which was a little like David Gest and Liza Minnelli getting back together, only if David Gest had been booed by an entire fan base off and on for seven years. I think Jerry Sloan was watching 'Eddie' on HBO3 one night after about 10 drinks and suddenly decided, 'You know what? He drove me crazy, but I miss that big oaf! Let's get him back!'"

Sigh. And we traded three people away to get him, too.

I'm not even going to bother with the NBA this year. Bring on the college hoops!

Really, you were still watching professional basketball?

The NBA has become a theater for the cocky and arrogant jock, and is more a show than an athletic contest. It's amazing that you can get ten guys with heads that large to fit on the same court.

Furthermore, you can't honestly tell me that the referees do not "lean" toward certain players or teams. It would ruin the NBA image to have superstars foul out early or get called for travelling over and over and over.
