Bill Simmons: If Portland Drafted Me, I Would Force A Trade

Some Friday whimsy... ESPN's Bill Simmons, in a column on contract negotiatons and holdouts... --------------------------- I love visiting Seattle and Portland -- two of my favorite cities in America, actually -- but could never live in the Pacific Northwest because nonstop rain puts me in a perpetual funk. If Portland drafted me No. 1 in a Sports Columnist draft, and I knew I could hold out for a few months and force them to trade me to San Diego, Miami or Los Angeles ... you're telling me I wouldn't hold out? Please. In a heartbeat. I need the sun. Sorry, Portland. It's not you, it's me. --------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
