Excellent Bill Simmons Read

Seconding PB's preference that Bill Simmons write about nothing but basketball...definitely one of Simmons' better and funnier columnns of late.

And seeing as this is a Texas blog, an obligatory Longhorn reference from the article, having to do with Simmons' hope that his Celts land one of the top two picks:

"I'm relieved they didn't do anything -- especially a Pau Gasol-Al Jefferson deal, which would have been an enormous mistake when you consider the age difference (five years), the salaries (Gasol makes six times as much), the stats (Jefferson's a better rebounder, and they're equally mediocre defenders, so they would have been picking up an extra 4-5 points a game and that's it) and the fact that Gasol could have inadvertently knocked them out of the Greg Oden/Kevin Durant Sweepstakes."
