Bill Simmons caught fist pumping after Celtics pick

During tonight’s NBA Draft, Bill Simmons proved that you really can’t take the fan out of the analyst, no matter how much you get paid by a national sports network. After Simmons’ beloved Boston Celtics drafted Kentucky’s James Young 17th overall, the camera caught Simmons giving a little fist pump before realizing that’s not exactly fitting for a national analyst.

I don’t think this is a huge deal – Simmons has never tried to hide his biases towards Boston sports. Hell, he made a career as the Boston Sports Guy. But maybe he should try to be a little more discreet about it in the future.
