In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
"Celtics lover, Bill Simmons is already extremely impressed with the Lakers in their first preseason game.Bill Simmons @sportsguy33 4 minutes ago
Nash, Kobe and Gasol look fantastic together. I'm picking the Lakers to win the title and sweep Miami in the Finals."
Tommyfraud, you are so laughable, what a joke of a fake Celtics fan you are.
What Simmons did in that Tweet is what is known to his followers as a "reverse jinx". By picking the Lakers he is in effect doing his best to jinx them.
Gosh Tommy you are a super piece of work, scrounging the Internet for anything that supports your myopic views even if you have no understanding of the information you are reading.
Of course Simmons was inspired to tweet that because of how poorly Kobe, Gasol and Nash were playing that night.
He reinforced the jinx tweet with another obvious reverse jinx:
"I'm picking the Lakers to win 75, 76 or 77 games. Thinking about going low with 75 just to be safe."
Lakers fans immediately responded knowing exactly what Simmons was trying to do.
Ironically you are reverse jinxing the Lakers yourself by handing out rings to the guys before they have done anything on the floor.
They are OLD.
Exactly, anyone who has read Simmons for 15 years as I have knows his tounge-in-cheek jinx's by now... he'll 'flatter' the Lakers a lot this year while making backhanded compliments about their 'experience' and ability to 'play through injuries' etc. etc. when we all know that old team will not mesh the ego's or have the depth and health to get out of the West. It is what Bill does... only the closed-minded and ignorant LA fans can get excited about such things and pathetically post such a tweet on a boston site... just shows their low IQ yet again. Oh an LA's coach is a complete joke, another reason not to pick them to go very far.
