ISnt that a different fellow than the one that won the intern contest, w the same name?
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

Quite a few people dancing on his grave.

Wonder how responsible he is for canning all the Foxsports.com writers and whether that'll come back to bite them in the ass?

That would pretty impressive to go from Simmons intern to running Fox Sports in 10 years.

Is that more or less impressive than Jimmy Kimmel staff writer, to guy who won't shut up about his several months as Jimmy Kimmel staff writer 10 years later?

Speaking of tireless work, I was kinda disappointed you didn't defend your boy's brilliant idea to move the Clippers to Seattle. Would have made this leg of the board run a lot easier.

i am not kite, but I don't think moving the Clippers to Seattle is a bad idea. Since they have been in L.A., the Clippers have always been second class in the NBA behind the Lakers, and clearly behind other sports teams in the area. I am not convinced that a team in Seattle wouldn't make more money than the Clippers in both franchise appreciation and operating income. I know the Clippers were bought by Ballmer for an insane amount.

This is where you are completely wrong. The Clippers print money even when they're terrible. Being in a market like LA, even as the red-headed stepchild, is such a huge advantage that moving pretty much anywhere would be crazy. The fact is, Seattle wasn't making a ton of money. If they were, Stern wouldn't have let them move.

They would have made a lot of money if they had a decent arena. That thing even after being remodeled was horrible

That's true, but a #2 team in LA/NY is better off than being #1 in a mid-market like Seattle. It's just the way it is. The Knicks are terrible but they are still the most valuable franchise, or the second most valuable, year in and year out. Even BK is top 10 just for showing up.

So how much did the Clippers make last year:

the Los Angeles Clippers are estimated to have lost $11.8 million.

So what you're saying is after they depreciate the shit out of their players and physical assets, and take writedowns on god knows what, they somehow have made so little money on an accounting basis that they don't have to pay any taxes. Weird.
