Bill Simmons Was Not Happy about His Lack of Airtime, Bitched About It

By 06.13.14


ESPN’s postmortem of the Miami Heat’s very public execution last night took a turn most networks would like to avoid. After sitting silently for most of the program, Bill Simmons bitched about his lack of speaking opportunities.

It was pretty awkward, especially when you consider the icy stare delivered by Sage Steele.

The Sports Guy certainly seemed serious about his complaint. In the grand scheme of things, this bit of unscripted politicking isn’t an enormous deal. On the other hand, it’s difficult for many of his colleagues to feel too sorry for a guy on the biggest stage with the biggest platform.

Either way, expect Simmons to get more words in edgewise during Game 5’s coverage.

About Kyle Koster... Whenever you read a blog and think, "this is something that didn't need to be on the internet," you can bet I am responsible for it. I left a promising career in actual journalism to make GIFS and watch sports. No regrets. Oh yeah, I talked to Justin Bieber once and it was OK. Send tips/tell me I suck: or
