Bill Simmons Trolls Heat for Shabazz Napier Trade (GIF)

The Miami Heat traded for UConn Huskies star guard Shabazz Napier on draft night and it seemed to make not only a lot of sense but a lot of Heat fans very happy. It even made LeBron James happy as he had lobbied hard to get him on the team he is no longer technically a part of and saw his wish honored by the front office.

One man who was not tickled by the trade was Heat hater Bill Simmons. After having a joygasm over the Hornets pairing Uconn guards Kemab Walker and Shabazz Napier, Simmons was less than pleased to hear about the trade that sent Napier to the Heat and verbally spasmed on the ESPN set.

He also stopped short of actually having a spasm by just rolling his eyes in obvious disgust.


In short, Simmons said he was sick of teams helping the Heat out, as though the Charlotte Hornets acquiring P.J. Hairston in the trade was charity of some sort. Both players are high quality picks that can help each individual team, but Simmons took time to troll the Heat and show that while ESPN may love the Heat, Simmons never will.
