ESPN/Grantland’s Bill Simmons Says Cavs Home Games “Borderline Religious Experience” in 2014-15

Simmons-Rose

If by chance you have not ever checked out ESPN’s subsidiary sports and culture website www.Grantland.com that is ran by the infamous Bill Simmons then you are truly missing out.

But enough of the plug for a website that gets a ga-zillion monthly views already.

Simmons and his crack NBA writer Zach Lowe (seriously Lowe is one of the best NBA writers going right now) break down their ‘Annual NBA League Pass Rankings (Part 2) and among all the crazy, zany and likely truthful things that are said in the rankings article is that Simmons thinks the 2014-15 Cleveland Cavalier home games are poised to be a …

“borderline religious experience.”

Simmons main reasons include the 2009 Cavaliers team that went 39-2 at home with a weaker roster and way worse head coach in Mike Brown.

There is some fun reading about the Chicago Bulls as well – including just how excited Simmons is to see Doug McDermott showcase his shooting range.

Myself? I’ve seen plenty of McBuckets trey-balls to properly respect his range. The picture below is more of what I’m looking forward to from Dougie this season. Who in the hell wants to get dunked on by the guy in that picture?

Can’t wait (in my Bart Scott voice) to see who McBuckets puts on his first poster!
