Default Bill Simmons Toying with Raptor Fans

How much you want to bet that Simmons just got a ton of email from his "favourite" basketball fans?

I actually enjoy Simmons. He has a place in my heart when he said that he wished all NBA cities had fans as passionate as Raptor fans. My love - hate relationship with him therefore still exists. Plus, once the Raps go out in the playoffs (if that is) I'll cheer for the Celts.
