    The San Antonio Spurs are your 2014 National Basketball Association champions. Tim Duncan and coach Gregg Popovich now have five rings together, while the core trio of Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker now have four. And this one was their most impressive one yet, as they gave the two-time defending champs the biggest thrashing […]

    Bill Simmons Is a Big Baby (Video)

    I like Bill Simmons. He’s a good writer, and Grantland is pretty great. That being said, he can be a bit of a baby sometimes, and last night was one of those times. During ESPN’s post-game wrap-up of Game 4 of the NBA Finals, it took a pretty long time for moderator Sage Steele to […]

    Of all the things that the San Antonio Spurs fans have been doing to prepare themselves for this year’s NBA Finals rematch against the Miami Heat, this is by far the best.

    Big Apple vs. Hollywood: A Complete History of New York-Los Angeles Championship Battles

    Officially, the folks who run North America’s major professional sports leagues just want good championship series between deserving teams. However, everybody knows they’ll get better TV ratings and more advertising revenue if championships series feature the big market teams. So everybody also knows that, regardless of sport, a New York-L.A. matchup is pretty much the holy grail […]
