Fans of Bill Simmons, the man mostly likely to say ‘You know, that play is sorta like John Belushi spraying banana out his mouth’, should enjoy his podcasts on ESPN.com. Guests include Metal‘s Chuck Klosterman, and other writer-types if you find the sports discussed a bit baffling.
Chuck Klosterman interviews Michelle Obama’s brother, a basketball coach.
“When I played basketball with Barack, he was quietly confident, which means he had good self-esteem without being cocky. He was certainly a team player — he wasn’t a pig, he passed when he was supposed to pass, and he cut when he was supposed to cut. To me, that speaks to a lack of selfishness. He had natural leadership ability, because he didn’t just pass me the ball because he was dating my sister.”
