Randy OrtonBill Simmons Blasts Triple H

In a new mailbag piece published over at the ESPN affiliate site Grantland.com, Bill Simmons had the following to say when asked if the recent surge of Jeremy Lin in the NBA is the equivalent of CM Punk last year as opposed to the self-proclaimed "King of Kings:"

"Does this mean Carmelo is going to be Triple H — the egotistical, overrated star who couldn't handle that something good was happening without him, so he interjected himself into the storyline and ended up throwing a wet blanket on all the momentum?" Simmons writes. "I sure hope not."
