Simmons vs. Isiah

Isiah Thomas reportedly threatened Bill Simmons, while appearing yesterday as a guest on Stephen A. Smith's ESPN radio show. Thomas allegedly told Stephen A. that were he to ever meet Simmons on a street corner, "there would be a problem."

This came after Simmons has spent the last couple of years pretty regularly mocking Isiah's pathetic performance as GM of the Knicks. On the show Smith, once again displaying the sort of ignorance he seems to display as a badge of honor, then claimed he'd never heard of Simmons. Sports Guy responds here; I can't wait for the resulting Scoop Jackson column.

In terms of radio stunts on Martin Luther King Day, it wasn't nearly as offensive (or, for that matter, as funny) as the "Kidd Chris Show" bit in which a Stone Cold Steve Austin impersonator appeared (to the sounds of broken glass), and wished everyone a "Happy MiLK Day."
