Sports Guy Mailbag and NFL Picks

Definitely worth your time, if only for questions like: "Is it just me, or is Tyronn Lue the ugliest woman in the NBA?"

And, no, I don't want to talk about LeBron having three chances on this road trip to hit game-tying or game-winning shots at the buzzer and blowing each one of them. It's like watching the messiah be exposed as a fraud. Sure he can walk on water, heal the sick, and turn water into wine, but ask him to redeem all our sins and he comes up short. I'm in a mild panic about this.

When I calm down remind me to explain why LeBron might be turning into the next Wilt Chamberlain, and why that's a bad thing.

But you are so right -- so many of his reader's try to sound like him and try to one-up the absurd juxtaposition of his particular pop culture favorites and some sporting phenomenon. I believe your word from a couple of weeks ago was "sad," or maybe it was "funny." Whatever it is, it does get grating. Even Simmons is hit or miss at his own style (more hit than miss, to be sure, but you know what I mean.)
