The Only Thing Mike D'Antoni Detests More Than His Team's Play Is T.J. Simers' Questions

There's probably no other sports reporter/columnist out there who can ingratiate himself so well to a coach as T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles Times, if by "ingratiate" we mean "antagonize coaches coming off a bad loss by uttering outrageous allegations that make them to want to strangle you in front of your peers." This technique is fast becoming old hat for Simers, who recently pulled these kinds of trolltastic shenanigans with UCLA head coach Jim Mora Jr. Now, Mike D'Antoni, fresh off a demoralizing road loss to the Cavaliers, is his latest target.


Hell yeah, we worked for a half hour on it. So get your—you're starting to—you're starting to piss me off. You're starting to piss me off because you're saying something that's not factually correct.

Can't imagine what Simers' column tomorrow will focus on. After all, this is pretty much all he knows.
