Bill Simmons Opens Big Mouth, Says Something Dumb
Bill Simmons, basketball, playoffs blah blah blah. Memphis Grizzlies down 2-0. Fans blah! Bill Simmons said what?
"I didn't realize the effect [The MLK assassination] had on that city...I think from people we talk to and stuff we've read, the shooting kind of sets the tone with how the city thinks about stuff. We were at Game 3. Great crowd, they fall behind and the whole crowd got tense. They were like, 'Oh no, something bad is going to happen.' And it starts from that shooting." (via Uproxx)
Come again? When a basketball team falls behind, the fans begin to worry because Martin Luther King, Jr.? That is a Fast & Furious level leap of logic. What happened here? Did Simmons finally run out of "The O.C." and Rounders analogies, so he leapt to the next most logical reference point? MLK's assassination?
So, does that mean Kennedy assassinations are responsible for Boston fans' heady combination of arrogance and defeatism, or is that just a natural byproduct of New England winters?

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
