ESPN Radio host Mike Golic and Bill Simmons "worked things out" after Simmons called out Golic for critical comments on Thursday.
On Friday's Mike & Mike show, Golic said he and Simmons cleared the air. Golic's co-host Mike Greenberg said he also called Simmons to apologize.
On Thursday, Simmons took exception to Golic's show pulling out of context a snippet of comments he made comparing LeBron James' early season struggles to Albert Pujols' play after he switched teams. Golic's original comments:
"I think it’s one of the most ridiculous statements I’ve heard four games into a season in my life in any sport," said Golic in response. “That’s what I’ll say about Bill Simmons. So, you know, he grabbed a headline, which is something I know he loves — and that’s one of the most ridiculous lines I’ve ever heard in any sport in my life. Four games into a season. I don’t even … that’s ridiculous."
Later in the day, Golic tweeted that the two spoke and settled their differences.
Simmons was suspended for three weeks earlier this year after he called NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a liar. Simmons claimed Goodell knew Ray Rice hit his then-fiancée before TMZ released video of it.
