Hey Portland, Kevin Durant’s Career Is In Jeopardy Now Too! Feel Better?

ESPN’s Bill Simmons summed it up best, “Cant mess around with feet.  Can’t.  Can’t.  Can’t.  Not in basketball.  I’m worried.” That’s the sentiment surrounding the latest news of Kevin Durant’s lingering foot injury.  And due to such, coupled with the sensitivity in this neck of the woods regarding Greg Oden, I’m wondering (In my best Colonel Nathan Jessup...

Dethroned: LeBron knocked from the top spot in Bill Simmons’ trade value column

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 spot in Bill Simmons’ annual NBA Trade Value column, the four-time MVP and sometimes...

Bill Simmons opening the door for a potential ESPN exit?

If you were writing a Sports Media Trade Value column, where would you rank “Bill Simmons’ Expiring Contract”?

Jalen Rose got just a little defensive towards Frank Isola

ESPN aired their latest 30 for 30 last night, I Hate Christian Laettner.  While the film’s title and subject matter are obviously supposed to bring out emotional responses, the network probably didn’t imagine it would do so with one ESPN on-air personality calling out another.
