I think Bill Simmons would agree. Simmons, author of the Sports Guy column on ESPN.com as well as the current best seller "The Book of Basketball" is profiled in Sunday's NY Times.
The Times highlights what makes Simmons such a good writer, he understands how a fan thinks, and how important debates, discussions and lists are to the sports fan. The Times article highlights a recent column by Simmons where he debates what is the better sports month- April or October? Simmons describes it as an "underrated argument". The NY Times writer, Noah Cohen than goes on to say this:
"Perhaps that is because it can never be resolved. Can you ever really answer which is better, October or April, or, more profoundly, who is the better N.B.A. center, the prolific scorer Wilt Chamberlain or the prolific winner Bill Russell?"Rachel vs. Zenyatta can be added to the list. It can never be resolved and that is what makes it so appealing.
