Grantland puts out some quality stuff.
dear bill simmons
remember when you told jalen rose, and the internet, that you were allergic to demar derozan’s game — that it puts you instantly asleep? it was just a few months ago.
Amir’s gonna catch feelings for not being put on DD’s all-LA team!
Nice seeing BS actually showing some respect to the Raptors this season instead of making a mockery out of us. I was surprised when he said he’s never been to Toronto, although it explains why he knows so little about the city. 4th or 5th largest city in North America depending how you count. Most multicultural city in the western hemisphere. I’m tired of Americans assuming that TO is a frozen-over shit hole where we say aboot, when in reality we have the same climate as Detroit, Chicago and New York, and we speak with a midwestern accent. As much as the Rob Ford thing was an embarassment, it was nice seeing TO get some publicity in the States for a change. The fact that they cared enough to report it heavily shows that TO and Canada is finally starting to be considered as an equal, and not just the retarded cousin up north.
It is amazing for a guy from Boston .. for sure. He says hes been to (and loves) Montreal a few times .. but no love for TO. Its kinda shocking we wouldnt have for one reason or another …
Who could be the big? AMIR JOHNSON? like come on … he’s not the best in the world but better him than nobody
not that I totally disagree .. but shows how much raps fans overrate amir if DD doesnt even think of him and hes an LA guy through and through ..
Out of 16 minutes, Bill Simmons spent more time discussing bullshit like him getting invited to the Drew League. Man what a terrible interview. Here is a first time all star(DeMar) on a team that has struggled for years yet is 3rd in the East and this is the brutal interview. DeMar is a proud Raptor and always say’s the right things about the team and the City yet barely had to answer team questions. Simmons is a moron who say’s stupid things and asks stupid questions. This interview was full of dumb ass questions. Good on DeMar for not taking the bait regarding other players.
Thats why SImmons is the most successful writer / sports personality (non-former athlete) in the world and you are some dude named chewwy no matthew posting comments.
This was hugely entertaining because he talked about interesting shit in a chill manner, not the same stock questions about the same old stuff.
Simmons is definitely not the most successful writer/sports personality ( Non former) in the world. Not sure why the cheap shot at my name just because I gave an opinion you loser ass didn’t agree with. Simmons spent more time trying to garner an invite for himself and didn’t spend much of this interview discussing DeMar.
your name is irrelevant .. my comment would have been exactly the same regardless of what you call yourself, just insert “a dude named [insert name]“. The point is that Simmons style makes for a much more entertaining interview than most … and his success and following is a testament to the fact that hes doing something very, very right
