My "OH SHIT" Read of the Summer.

Once again, Bill Simmons wows me.

He is such an incredible writer that isn't afraid to call out the big dogs. He, once again, delivered an absolutely amazing piece. I am wow'ed. I read the entire thing, which took me a while, but damn was it well worth it.

Look, guys, I wouldn't recommend a read unless it was great. It is super long, but like I said it is really worth it. Great read, and to be honest he points out a lot of great points. His ideas are killer, and to be honest he puts up a great case of why his ideas work.

I know he is really sarcastic and full of dry humor, so even if you can't stand that stuff, try to look past it. If anything, just read the following:

Issue Number 4: GREAT point, signifies why people like LeBron and Bosh should make less, and why guys like Dirk and Kobe deserve more money.

Issue Number 7: Read the 7th bullet down. It talks about a genius playoff idea to make it sooo much more exciting. It would solve teams tanking, and provide for cinderella teams, all while giving playoff teams a needed rest before the playoffs.

This man is a genius. I'd recommend reading it all, but if impossible just read the two things I suggested. It will only take 4-5 minutes.

Without further ado,

Here is the story, in another window.

Now, as always,

GO MAVS!
