THIS JUST IN: BILL SIMMONS DECLARES THE THUNDER ARE IDIOTS FOR PLAYING KEVIN DURANT!!

That's right: Bill Simmons says the Thunder have no shot at winning a title this season. So why on earth would they risk the health of their still-frail franchise player in a series in which he's being manhandled by a beast like Ron Artest?  "Short-term thinking," declared Simmons in a scathing column.  "Only a dysfunctional franchise with a front office in disarray would sign off on something as foolish as this!"

THIS ALSO JUST IN: SIMMONS DECLARES THE KNICKS WERE IDIOTS TO LET WILLIS REED PLAY HURT!!  "The front office people who signed off on that should have been taken out and shot," Simmons railed.  "Sure, the Knicks were battling for a title that season.  Yes, their gamble paid off when Reed hobbled out and inspired the Knicks to victory.  Sure, that's a moment etched in the memory of every Knicks fan to this day.  But that's still short-term thinking.  What about the Knicks' dynastic hopes? How many titles did they end up winning?  Maybe a healthier Reed would have gotten them over the top.  Why on earth would you roll the dice like that with your star center's health?  Stupid, stupid, stupid!"
