Bill Simmons On Meeting Isiah Thomas

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmons/book/091021

You want to talk about irony? How about Simmons and Isiah agreeing that NBA players are now too nicey-nicey with one another.........at the same time they are meeting in a swank Vegas pool to be all nicey-nicey with each other?

Simmons, as he admits, has just killed Isiah in print and he has absolutely no respect for Isiah, yet when he meets Isiah he sucks up to him and nods along at Isiah's ridiculous statements (he didn't kill the CBA? Um, before Isiah owned it, it existed; after he owned it, it was bankrupt).

This is why I have such a hard time being around people I hate. It is very difficult for me to even be civil to them. If you truly do not like someone, there is a reason. Why should you have to pretend that you get along?

Anyway -- good reading.
