    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    I was talking to a couple friends about this but Nephew Kyle really is just a chode, this episode sealed it for me. And the best part about it is that he's everything Bill would have loved to be at that age and so I think he pushes Kyle into doing dumber and dumber stuff.

    Jurassic World 3: Where the Dinosaurs have Quad Injuries and Hate Their Shoe Deals

    Do they? They totally gimped any chance of giving Kawhi any real help with contracts like the Pau deal. They could have had a ton of cap room next year but totally mishandled their situation.

    NBA 2018 Trade Deadline Chatter

    That's absolutely fine. Denver offered expiring contracts and 2 2nd's, what do you make of Memphis turning that deal down?

    IT to Denver

    Lakers have absolutely no PG depth. Ingram has been starting at PG with Ball out since Ennis is that bad.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    Highly recommend the Road Trippin' podcast if you're at all a basketball fan. Channing Frye and RJ are excellent on it. It's a much more fun/lighthearted version of the podcast JJ Redick had and during the season they'll have someone on from the team as a guest almost every week.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    You're kidding yourself if you think this is unique to Simmons. Fast and the Furious and John Wick have an incredibly loyal fanbase among a large portion of the sports blogosphere.

    Durant to Warriors

    Bingo. I think Charles Barkley as a figure plays a big part in this. He's still one of the most prominent figures in the NBA and nobody cares/remembers how great a player he was because he didn't get a ring. We've reached a point where not getting a title is such a huge defining part of your...

    You wouldn't be saying that if he joined Boston.

    2016 NBA Draft Game Thread

    There were reports on Twitter that he had refused to be drafted by multiple teams because he didn't want to be stashed for a year. This year more than any I can remember there were a lot of these situations. For example Zubac fell to the 2nd because he also told NBA teams he had no interest in...

    General Playoff Thread: The Long 2nd Season

    Lillard is shooting something like 35% for the entire playoffs. It's truly incredible how overrated he is especially when you put up his regular season "star numbers" vs Kemba Walker and see they are basically the same player except Kemba gives a damn on defense.

    Adam LaRoche, his son, Kenny Williams, and retirement

    The kid had his own locker apparently and had his life revolve around the clubhouse wherever dad was. It's one thing for him to be around over his Summer break, another for the Laroche family to believe that the clubhouse teaches you more than a school would. I'm totally with the White Sox...

    2016 NBA Draft

    He definitely stood out to me when going against Texas. Absolutely ate B12 DPOY Prince Ibeh up in late January. Showed some great ball skills and great touch around the rim. There's not many if any real bigs I saw this year that had his post skills. Think the game against WSU was more of an...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    I am refusing to listen to any of his pods that discuss Deflategate. Get over it, Bill. You've discussed it to death and you never say anything new on the subject.

    Longhorn Football 2015: When do we get our horns back?

    I am 99% sure Madubuike was one of their top 5 defensive guys as he should be, dude's a monster. Aside from that though, they had an incredible run of strikeouts today which was awesome to follow on Texags. Once Jones chose the good guys and Pennamon didn't flip to aggy as expected they were...

    Burning bridges, a.k.a. the relocation thread

    Except for the fact that they're by far the most popular team in LA. Nobody roots for the Chargers here.

    Longhorn Football 2015: When do we get our horns back?

    As nice as it is, it feels like the floodgates in Texas are wide open recruiting wise. Even without aggy getting a lot of these guys the other SEC schools, Oregon, and Michigan have had a big presence this recruiting cycle not to mention the rest of the Big 12. It does open up the opportunity...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    Carolla impression was spot-on despite me not having listened to him in a while. Really disappointed he keeps bringing in Michael Rapaport for basketball. It's really frustrating to here someone without rudimentary knowledge of the NBA dragged in so he can spout off on how he thinks Byron...
