As a Bill Simmons fanboy, I listen to his podcast religiously. His episode today was about tomorrow night’s NBA All-Star Weekend Celebrity game. Bill Simmons will be coaching one team and Jimmy Kimmel will be coaching the other. That’s enough to get me to watch.
Simmons’ team seems stacked though, with Scottie Pippen and Chris Mullin as his NBA “legend” talent, as opposed to Kimmel’s AC Green and Rick Fox. Plus Simmons’ has Joel McHale and one of the guys from The Social Network who are both pretty tall. Kimmel has Justin Bieber. Speaking of Bieber, Kimmel has him and assistant coach Magic Johnson, both of whom should help him win over the Los Angeles crowd.
