Default Why does Bill Russell hate ESPN?

Was listening to a Bill Simmons podcast and he talked about how Bill Russell will never work with ESPN because he hates ESPN.

Anyone know why?

I'm sure his reasoning isn't any different from the rest of ours

Because of their overrating of players of today's generation and skipping them over past greats like they're yesterday's trash.

People keep saying Lebron vs. MJ. Shit, Lebron hasn't even passed Hakeem, Shaq, Duncan, Kobe, Kareem, Wilt, Magic, Bird yet. They bumped him up to God status while by passing all the past greats.

Probably because he's mad that they label Michael Jordan the G.O.A.T. even though he has 11 rings.

MJ/Kareem/Russell/Bird/Magic are the Mt. Rushmore of the NBA.

Lebron will never be on that echelon.

Larry Bird/Magic is on the NBA Mt.Rushmore but Kobe isn't?

Explain yourself.

When it's all said and done,

Bryant will be at least a 5x NBA Champ..

Top 2 GUARD of all time.

2nd all time scorer in history.

Lebron JOINED a super team in the prime of his career. No player in the history of the NBA has ever done that. I repeat, no player in the history of the NBA has done that.

He kissed his legacy goodbye in 2010.

Ok..? Can you explain why LeBron had to score more points than Kobe has EVER scored in his 5x post-season run to win the championship? I guess that means Kobe's teams were the Avengers.

No he is not Kobe is overrated.

But anyways Lebron will be a part of that Mount Rushmore. Also Shaq is a part of it along with Duncan.

That's... Pretty questionable. To many, he's only the 3rd greatest Laker of all-time. His torn Achilles isn't helping at all.

Because Lebron loves to pad his stats.
