How serious is the referee point-shaving scandal in the NBA? So serious that Bill Simmons wrote about it without referencing Hoosiers, The Godfather, Swingers, or watching Larry Bird with his father. There was one Entourage reference, but from Simmons, this is like the Mourner's Kaddish.
Oddly enough, Simmons also failed to reference any of his numerous trips to Vegas with his buddies, another one of his frequent column staples. Perhaps he felt it would be in poor taste.
