Bill Simmons is getting his own HBO show
Bill Simmons has given the pop culture landscape a lot. I admit that, acknowledge it. And move on from it. ‘Cause he’s also the maestro of bloviating, crappy pop culture references, and other nonsense. So I don’t really give a fuck about him moving to HBO on a personal level, but it’s interesting as far as Pop Culture Developments go.

Somehow I missed the news that Marvel and ESPN have teamed up to produce promotional materials for the upcoming NBA season. Dopest part? They’re referencing classic Marvel shiznit. Like the Infinity Gauntlet! Somehow, this makes sense, since Marvel and ESPN are both owned by Disney, through way of ABC or uh, something. I can’t keep track. But whatever the case, it’s dope. And here’s hoping Kobe-Thanatos can take out LeBron James and the Uncanny Douchebags this year. Yeah, I said it.
Speaking of which, hit the jump for a LeBron James riff on the classic Amazing Spider-Man issue where Peter gives up the costume.
