“Then again, I’m a weirdo who loves alpha-dog battles.”
Bill Simmons. At this point, Simmons has described the Miami Heat and the Eagles in terms of each other at least ten times, both as an example of successful and unsuccessful alpha dog partnerships, sometimes in the same essay. What’s next? A 15,000-word piece where Simmons details the explosive rivalry between alpha dogs Ben Foster and Emile Hirsch on the set of Alpha Dog.

“What’s the best parallel between a basketball team and a rock band? The Eagles.”

Bill Simmons, staying relevant.

The Dude is so pissed right now.

“Buying an NBA team these days is like buying beachfront property in Turks and Caicos — it barely matters where your house is, or what shape it’s in, just that you’re on the water.”
Bill Simmons, accidentally revealing how rich he is now.

From behind me, I heard a raspy, older, female voice ask me, ‘You guys gonna win today?’

I turned around. The voice belonged to Amy Madigan, the actress who played Kevin Costner’s wife in Field of Dreams.

'Yes,' I told her. 'We are going to win today. But I don't know about tomorrow.'

'Who's pitching?' she asked.

'Lester today. Tomorrow, I don't know. Might be Kevin Costner.'

She thought this was funny.

Self-indulgent? I always wondered why that tag didn’t stick with white athletes such as Eli Manning, John Elway, Danny Ferry and Kiki Vandeweghe, who refused to play for the teams that drafted them until they could force a trade. Did they avoid permanent ostracizing for their blatant attempt to circumvent the rules that are essential for competitive balance in the league simply because they were white? They certainly don’t pop up on the list when we talk about spoiled athletes.

LeBron, like the “draft dodgers,” never was accused of a major crime against society. But this week LeBron made a transgression that fewer are willing to forgive. He just forced us to discuss the existence of something none of us feels comfortable doing. He caused us to examine the bias that’s always lurking, that has the potential to spring from any of us.

J.A. Adande. I can’t believe it’s controversial to say that race plays some role in the perception of anything related to the NBA, but apparently it’s on par with organizing a dogfighting ring.

The Curse of the Simmons Podcast continues as recent guest Jared Dudley missed six of his seven shots - and four of his five threes - in a loss to Portland.  Somewhere in Moraga, Omar Samhan is sadly shaking his head.
