I often disagree with Simmons, but his writing is always entertaining.

He's exactly the type of influential media personality hockey should be trying to attract as a fan. Simmons, the quintessential NBA-diehard fan, frustrated by their work stoppage last year, buys LA Kings season tickets, and sees them win their first Cup ever. Now the Kings haven't even raised their Cup banner in the 2nd biggest media market on the continent.

I'm tired of debating who's more to blame for this CBA debacle, owners or players, but I'm more tired of the NHL self-destructing.

And if you want to read pure sports-comedy gold, pull up his NBA draft-day pieces. He did one NHL draft-day column as well.
