(14) Bill Simmons has been uprgraded to amazing seats for his season tickets. He said it was like winning the lottery
Bill said "As strange as it sounds, it's more painful to live the high life as a basketball fan and lose it than to never live the high life at all.
So far reading this book I have learned Bill Simmons is not afraid to use a variation of words
"The greatest struggle an athlete undergoes is the battle for our memories. It's gradual. It begins before you're aware that it's begun, and it ends with a terrible fall from grace. It really is a battle to the death." (23) This book has really shown how inspiring Bill Simmons can be with his quotes. Im excited because I am on page 23 and this book is 700 pages. So bet there is more quotes just like this one.
When Larry Bird got his amazing 5000 steal in Madison square garden the top balcony looked like it would fall down because all the people jumping and cheering. The place was estatic. (26)
in 1965 the Warriors shocked the world when they lost 17 games in a row. 17 GAMES IN A ROW!!!!! And most of the people thought this was
a team to be scared of. (63)
Larry bird could barely miss his shots. His average is insane. Every Game Larry would easily score a plethora of shots.
throughout the book Bill Simmons gives really cool interesting myths of the NBA. One of his myths is that players and coaches from the era are split over who is the greatest player.(80)
