Simmons and The Ringer are doing their best LaVar Ball impression, trying to “speak this into existence”. Simmons just wants LeBron out of the East so that his Celtics have an actual shot over the next 3–5 years. There’s no evidence of this, “he hasn’t denied it” is some of the weakest reasoning I’ve ever heard, dude’s on vacation, and the rest is pure conjecture.
I read the Ringer a lot, but these narratives that they push, like Point-Blake, get so tiresome when you read them in 4–5 articles in a row. As if they are an actual thing, when in fact it just multiple employees of the same employer spouting his nonsense
