What’s next for Bill Simmons? While We’re Waiting…

Happy Monday, you guys. If you’re anything like me, you spent much of Sunday evening coming down from the intense and heart-throttling finish to Game 4.

Dethroned: LeBron knocked from the top spot in Bill Simmons’ trade value column

A team can practically backwards somersault into the playoffs from 7-4! Instead, the Browns have gone a stupefying 0-4 since the Falcons victory, limping towards the December
