NBA on ESPN analyst and Grantland editor in chief Bill Simmons maintains many titles: writer, fan, Los Angeles Clippers season ticket holder, husband, dad, among a few others.
Among the many hats that he wears, he is an avid Boston Celtics fan.
If you’ve followed his blogs or read his book, you know that he has been a big Celtics fan since he was a child—when his father would take him to the old Boston Garden. While still maintaining his Boston NBA roots, since he’s moved to LA he has become a Clippers supporter.
His father, however, still maintains both his residence in the northeast and his status as a Celtics season ticket holder. This led to an interesting dialogue that Simmons shared via Twitter—along with his own analysis—regarding Wednesday afternoon’s three-team trade in the NBA.
