Probably the single dumbest paragraph of Bill Simmons’ career

Here’s what he wrote:

93. Chris Anderson
If the Birdman doesn’t win “Comeback Player of the Year” for (a) bouncing back from a drug violation so seedy that they wouldn’t even tell us what happened, and (b) giving Denver superior bench play this season (6.5 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.4 bpg in 20.5 mpg), then let’s dump the award and not have it anymore. 

OK Bill, for someone who purports to follow the NBA closely, that’s pretty damn bad considering:

a.) There is NOT a Comeback Player of the Year award in the NBA and there hasn’t been since 1984-1985. There is a Most Improved Player, but obviously that is different.

b.) A player on his own team, Nene, came back from testicular cancer (16 games played last season) to average 14.6 points, 7.8 boards, and 1.3 blocks per game, all of which are career highs


To channel Marc Jackson, you’re better than that (or at least your editors at the Worldwide Leader should be).
