Bill Simmons On The Bottom Half of The NBA

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmons/110401&sportCat=nba

There are a few issues I have, but I will stick with two:

1) Simmons for years has tried to promote Mike Miller as a free agent or trade for a winning team. Now Miami has him and Simmons rips him. At least if you are going to go so hard after a former favorite, admit that you were wrong initially.


2) Simmons criticizes Mike D'Antoni for not getting any use out of Corey Brewer who, allegedly, was swarmed with interest when Corey was cut.

Here is Corey Brewer's Game Log With Dallas, since March 1:



Apr 3 @ POR L 96-104 0 04:20 4 points
Mar 20 GSW W 101-73 0 11:04 2 points
Mar 12 LAL L 91-96 0 07:24 4 points
Mar 10 NYK W 127-109 0 16:50 7 points
Mar 7 @ MIN W 108-105 0 05:53 2 points
Mar 6 MEM L 103-104 0 09:59 6 points
Mar 4 IND W 116-108 0 05:21 0 points



In over a month he has played in 7 games, totaled about 60 minutes and scored 25 points. If "everyone" wanted Corey Brewer, then "everyone" was stupid.
