But What Does Scully Think?

Posted By on Wed, Apr 7, 2010 at 10:33 AM

Bill Simmons had David Duchovny as his guest on his most recent podcast, and in between talking about why old women like Californication and X-Files stuff, they got on the topic of LeBron going to New York.

(Memo to anyone who hasn't been asked their opinion about LeBron's free agency by an ESPN staffer or major metropolitan newspaper, there's still time, they'll get to you, I promise.)

So here's a little transcript of what went down, because what David Duchovny thinks about the NBA is very, very important. (Actually, Simmons does most the talking.)

DD: So what are the odds...

BS: I think it depends on...

DD: If they win this year?

BS: That plays a part of it. No one's ever left a team that's won a championship to play somewhere else, in the history of the league. I think it comes down to the Knicks. But everyone in New York passes along this sentiment that it's a different city than all these other cities. I don't know if he properly realizes what it would mean to turn around basketball in New York. How you convey that to him, I don't know.

DD: I think he gets it. I think you're right.

BS: He comes here once or twice a year, depending, maybe three games. This year he played twice, and the Knicks fans always rise to the occasion for it. It's like he's married to someone else and you're the girl trying to steal him away. They're trying to show him, We can be yours every game.

So, yeah, you can go back to your normal programming now. At least until we get word on what Scully thinks about the situation.
