Bill Simmons Lashes Out At ESPN

by Jared

Curious if this gets a fine or suspension. He hasn’t been able to hold his tongue a lot on social media and suddenly it boiled over last night.

This isn’t the first time Simmons has lashed out about the direction of the show.

“I’d like to see us take more chances,” Simmons told Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch in early June. “I never wanted to do a traditional studio show and I never wanted us to feel like every other ESPN studio show.

The problem isn’t Simmons, it is Magic Johnson. As long a Magic is the main person talking all the time, the show will never prosper. If they had a proper host with Wilbon, Jalen and Simmons, it might be a little better.

Simmons is the one employee that is bigger than ESPN. ESPN needs Bill Simmons more than Bill Simmons needs ESPN. I would love to see Simmons leave ESPN and have the freedom to say and write whatever he wants. Who knows if that will ever happen though.
