Anyone else find Simmons' b!tching about Kobe being a "good teammate" hysterical? Who cares? If you are the best player on a team that is currently in the Finals, have averaged 31/6/6/50%, won a game against the best defensive team in the league with one other player while locking down Paul Pierce, who gives a damn if you're a good "teammate"? What a loser this guy is.
He is not a closet Celtic fan. He is an admitted Celtic zealot.

Yeah, he's an admitted Boston homer but I like the guy...even though I don't care for any of Boston's teams.

He's probably the only "regional" guy that's gone national. He has his own page at espn.com.

You're right.
Anyone who doesn't love the Lakers, (more specifically Kobe) doesn't deserve to have an opinion.

Before the 2000-01 season, Pierce was stabbed 11 times at a Boston nightclub, suffered a collapsed lung and nearly bled to death while staggering to the hospital. Less than two weeks later, he played in Boston's first exhibition game. If the same thing had happened to Vince Carter, he would still be on the injured list seven years later.

Quote:
In my opinion, he's not only one of the toughest Celtics ever, he's one of the toughest Boston athletes ever. Not counting Tankapalooza 2007 (when the team shelved Pierce with a knee injury for half the season even when he probably could have played), Pierce missed just 21 games in nine seasons and played through a variety of injuries and ailments for mostly horrendous teams. So for anyone to insinuate that he is either (A) weak or (B) someone who would milk an injury, is just insane. On top of that, for the Lakers' fans to have the gall to question any other NBA star's character is three times as insane. In retrospect, Pierce's only mistake was not diffusing the Lakers fans before Game 3 by settling with his right knee out of court and buying it a $4 million diamond ring.

LMAO

I think Simmons is funny. His articles are more for humor than anything else. He's a Boston homer and apologist, no big deal, so of course he will have a jaded view towards LA....still funny though.
