Might as well put horns on both of them.

Bill Simmons, while I don't agree with him most of the time, is easily the better writer.
I rather read a well-written factually wrong article than a badly-written article that consists of 50% numbers but may have truth in it.

Simmons is more coherent and isn't a terrible columnist when he isn't talking about Kobe or the Lakers. Hollinger on the other hand...

Of course Simmons. You gotta vote for the one who hates the Fakers.

Bill Simons. At least he can discuss basketball without using numbers as his sole argument.

Simons, he is fun to read, and he doesnt hide his bias, unlike Hollinger, who cherry picks numbers and hides his bias behind numbers (sometimes blatantly fake).

Although Holli is from around these parts, I can not support some one who looks like the white Popeye Jones.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly.
I don't always agree with Simmons, but his first person, fan based point of view makes up for a far more enjoyable reading.
Plus, I'm a sucker for dated pop culture references

Other than dealing with Boston sports, I prefer Hollinger when it comes to actual sports analysis and information.
