Could be worse

With the Patriots' season over, Boston fans are stuck with the terrible Bruins and Celtics. I've been pretty depressed about that until I read a Bill Simmons response to an Isiah Thomas threat (yes, Isiah threatened Bill Simmons). Here's what Simmons had to say about the Knicks to Isiah:

Right now, you have a roster that costs something like $120 million. You completely overhauled the Knicks' roster in 14 months, and now you're trying to overhaul it again. There's no rhyme or reason to anything you're doing. Your team doesn't have a first-round pick next summer, and in the summer of 2007 -- widely considered to be the deepest draft in 20-plus years -- the Bulls have the right to exchange first-round picks with you (most of your fans don't even know this). You also have to give another first-round pick to Phoenix before 2010. And you have at least eight or nine players on your roster who are completely, utterly, totally untradable, including someone with a possible heart defect and someone whose back is in such bad shape nobody would insure his contract. Your team also has one of the worst records in the league.
