Back in 2008 Bill Simmons wrote a column for ESPN explaining why he should be given a chance to be the Bucks general manager. Milwaukee went with John Hammond, but now, Hammond is headed to Orlando. The Bucks are opening up their search again this summer and Simmons, once again, is throwing his hat in the ring.
Simmons referenced that column in a tweet at Mallory Edens, the daughter of Bucks co-owner Wes Edens, when saying “there’s still time” for the Bucks to hire him this time around. Simmons wanted to have a little fun online, and probably thought this would be a funny, harmless little tweet that might get a joking response from Edens.
