Bill Simmons withdraws NBA MVP vote due to gambling

“The Sports Guy” Bill Simmons was given a ballot to vote for this seasons awards for the first time in his successful sports journalism career. However, unfortunately for Simmons, the NBA has forced him to withdraw his MVP vote for LeBron James due to him putting some cash down on LBJ at the start of the season to take out the title.

The NBA takes gambling very seriously, you only have to look at the Tim Donaghy case of a couple of years back to realise this!

It’s a shame for Simmons and may even mean that the NBA won’t give him another chance to put pen-to-paper on the an awards ballot again in the future.
