Today's Poll

Another week, another Bill Simmons NBA column, another namedrop of Portland as a potential LeBron 2010 destination.

[Sidenote on the column: Did I miss the Simmons hat tip to Malcolm Gladwell for the "reps" idea?  Bill writes, "The more you do something, the better you will be" and then applies it to the great teams in the league right now.  Isn't that pretty much Gladwell's "10,000 hours to greatness" premise in his new book "Outliers," just repackaged for NBA fans? We know Bill liked Blink and that he's a Gladwell guy.  Just asking.]

Anyway, more to the point, Simmons won't let go of this LBJ to PDX thing.  I don't know whether to be skeptical, elated, surprised, wary or .... what?

As knowledgeable Blazers fans, what's the best response?
