Bill Simmons insinuates that Bucks fans are idiots.


http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/9186204/nba-trade-value-column-part-1

In his article about the top 50 most valuable assets he write about Tobias Harris as the #42 most valuable. Here are some quotes of his completely inaccurate and offensive timeline.

"Let's quickly recap the last two months for your average Bucks fan."
• Mid-February: "J.J. Redick! Woo-hoo!!!! Let's just hope that Harris kid doesn't come back to haunt us."

• Mid-March: "I don't care how well Harris is playing — I still like the Redick deal for us."

• Late March: "We need a new GM."

• Early April: "I'm not looking at Orlando's box scores anymore."

Where did this amateur get the impression that any Bucks fans were ever excited about the J.J. Redick trade? I have never met or read any comment on any forum from a Bucks fan that wasn't mortified by the trade right out of the gate. He then goes on to make us look even more idiotic by saying we were still in favor of the Redick deal even after Harris was playing like a monster in Orlando. If you read the article you will see in his side note that Mr. Simmons says he has no idea how Milwaukee couldn't realize Harris' potential all along. I for one will never take into consideration anything that Bill Simmons says in the future and I doubt he even spent a minute researching how the Milwaukee fans felt about this trade. Completely unprofessional journalism and more proof that small markets get no respect from the national media whatsoever.
