Bill Simmons thinks Adam Silver told the Lakers they couldn't sign PG 

Post#1 » by Guest202 » Tue Jul 3, 2018 9:45 pm

On his podcast yesterday Bill said half joking, half serious he think it's way too fishy PG didn't go play with LeBron in LA. He said what if Silver was tired of the Lakers shameless tampering and told them you're not signing him? As in, I'll ignore all this crap, but he's not coming to play for you. A stealth basketball reasons? :o

People give Silver too much power. He doesn't have this level of authority.

Who cares what Simmons thinks? Paul George went for the money, and he likes playing with Westbrook.

I might have believed it with Stern, but Silver is a complete pushover. No player is scared of that clown lol

Wasn't there a quote from some reporter basically saying PG claimed if OKC puts a chink in Warriors armor then it's on him, but if he does it on the Lakers, then LeBron gets all the credit? Something along those lines? Sounds like he didn't want to play with LeBron.

This thread title is a lie. Should be locked. Listen to the podcast. He clearly says he doesn't believe it. It's more like his "daily random conspiracy theory." Chill.

Good topic, because it's an interesting theory, but the title is completely inaccurate.

Simmons should stop talking basketball and get back to things more on his level: Real World episodes from the 90s and Boston homerism.

Yea after listening to the podcast I have to say the title thread is misleading. Simmons makes it clear that this is just his wild conspiracy theory and he has no basis for it whatsoever. He even tells people not read it as an inside report and dons his Conspriacy Bill character while saying this. It’s clearly meant as a joke and should be reported as anything serious.

Simmons isn't a source and knows squat. Please use one of the many Threads discussing the same things.

Thanks!
