ESPN.com scribe Bill "The Sports Guy" Simmons pumped out a list-y NBA season preview this week
, from which you can draw only one conclusion: Bill Simmons hates the Cavs.
His predictions: The Cavs will finish under .500 and miss the playoffs altogether. He ranks them among his best picks for betting the win-total over/under; Vegas has the Cavs at 48.5, and Simmons, of course, is laying the under. He also predicts that Anderson Varejao will sign a one-year deal to play in Europe, an interesting prediction, and that LeBron James will make and then recant a trade request -- also interesting, in that in reveals that Simmons smokes far more crack than previously thought. -- Joe P.
