FOX Sports and MTV News are merely the latest to abandon quality writing in favor of video. Where does it end?
It’s Friday on WFNY and that means Craig is here with his week’s thoughts and links to things that might interest you.
Bill Simmons’ “Every Given Wednesday” was cancelled, but it would be silly to assume this is the end of his era.
Bill Simmons’ HBO show Any Given Wednesday posted a hysterical Mike Polk video chronicling the existential crisis of Cleveland fans after winning a championship.
The NBA seems to be considering LeBron James an underdog because of the Spurs and Warriors. I welcome that as a Cavs fan.
A look at Hulk Hogan versus Gawker, the future of journalism, and Jay Glazer’s appearance on the Bill Simmons podcast.
A new blog is on the scene and I talk to Mike from Bottlegate about local sports media.
With the Indians at home, who are you rooting for?
On life beyond 140 characters and Bill Simmons’ return.
Happy Monday, you guys. If you’re anything like me, you spent much of Sunday evening coming down from the intense and heart-throttling finish to Game 4. The turnovers by LeBron James were beyond frustrating. The offensive fouls were even more so. If you want to take today to discuss David Blatt and his less-than-stellar final
It was bound to happen. LeBron James would start to make too much money, have too much uncertainty surrounding his future, and—gulp—was bound to age beyond a point where his trade value would start to take a hit. Be that as it may, after eight years of having a firm, kung-fu grip on the top
When we last left Grantland’s Editor in Chief Bill Simmons, he was driving the Kyrie Irving Irrational Hate bus, attempting to pick up guests who would believe his biased and otherwise incredulous beliefs surrounding the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard. Something about a scoring mentality. Something about not making teammates better. Something about his contract extension.
Most Cleveland Cavaliers fans probably missed the Grantland Basketball Hour, which aired Sunday night, because they were busy complaining about music/watching the Grammy’s, or catching The Walking Dead and the premiere of Better Call Saul on AMC. Meanwhile, Jalen Rose, Ryen Russillo, and Bill Simmons were counting down Simmons’ top 60 trade assets in the
Another year, another disaster of a Browns season. It’s difficult to remember, but the Browns were 7-4 following a last-second victory over the Atlanta Falcons on November 23. A team can practically backwards somersault into the playoffs from 7-4! Instead, the Browns have gone a stupefying 0-4 since the Falcons victory, limping towards the December
Note to self: Run AWAY from the strength coach.
Simmons asked for the hammer and ESPN hit him with it.
As we tend to do when shiny new toys show up wearing our favorite team’s colors (especially at the cost of other players), many are heading straight to the discussion surrounding value and what fans can expect on a going forward basis. In sports, it’s considerably more nuanced than adding a 2 to a 2
As if LeBron James couldn’t get lean enough. Brian Windhorst joined Grantland head honcho Bill Simmons to discuss all things NBA—and what’s an NBA conversation without discussing James and the Cavs? Per Windhorst, James has had such a packed schedule this summer (trips to China and Brazil among others) that he’s 10 or 12 pounds
It’s Friday, the World Cup is happening and it’s summer time. What are we really waiting for? The time is now. ***** I thought I’d start this week with something personal. I know nothing about parenting really. Like most of the rest of you who have done this or are doing it, there are a
Bill Simmons may be bulletproof in the eyes of various ESPN employees, but that didn’t stop a few high-profile ones from coming out and defending Cleveland in the wake of the 2014 NBA Lottery results. When it was revealed that the Cleveland Cavaliers—once again—have the first pick in the NBA Draft, Simmons quickly took to
