Trade Marc Gasol To The Lakers Trade Marc Gasol To The Lakers

The Memphis Grizzlies are swan-diving at a high rate of speed to the bottom of the West, and according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski they’re finally ready to see about trading away the two aging faces of the franchise, guard Mike Conley and center Marc Gasol. The team would likely need to get a lot back for either…

Pacers Fans, To Kelly Oubre Jr.: "John Wall Hates You" Pacers Fans, To Kelly Oubre Jr.: "John Wall Hates You"

The Washington Wizards are so richly and floridly toxic that it’s impossible to keep track of which of them want to murder each other at any given time. But, in the aftermath of the trade that sent him to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for a fading 33-year-old who’ll be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season

One Extremely Pretty Bucket From Anthony Davis's 46-Point Game One Extremely Pretty Bucket From Anthony Davis's 46-Point Game

Understandably, James Harden’s 57-point detonation of the Memphis Grizzlies and the Boston Celtics’ ongoing weirdness were the main stories of last night’s NBA action. In the background, though, Anthony Davis went off on the Clippers, dumping 46 points, 16 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and a block on their heads and…

Bring Back Good Fast-Breaks Bring Back Good Fast-Breaks

The Wizards were down by like 32 points last night, and I was watching old NBA highlights, as I, an extremely old person whose brain has been turned into a Slurpee by worms, am wont to do when it probably would be smarter and more productive to do blogs instead. And it occurred to me that a fast-break used to look…

Which stock characters will your favorite NFL team interview in its futile search for a good head coach? Beware “guy who went 3-1 as an interim coach two years ago.” [SI]

You May Be Shocked To Learn Which 76er Is Reportedly Causing Problems Behind The Scenes You May Be Shocked To Learn Which 76er Is Reportedly Causing Problems Behind The Scenes

“Around the [Philadelphia 76ers] organization, there’s an urgency for [Brett] Brown and his coaching staff to stabilize the situation,” according to a report today by ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski. But which situation is that? You’re not gonna believe this, but it’s the situation of Jimmy…

Racist Politics Flack From Seattle: I'm Not Racist, I'm British Racist Politics Flack From Seattle: I'm Not Racist, I'm British

So, yesterday, hilariously inept* conservative politics flack and weird cable news creature Liz Mair did, and later deleted, a very bad tweet:

Nevada Coach Jay Norvell Hath Donned The Blue Shirt Of Inspiration Nevada Coach Jay Norvell Hath Donned The Blue Shirt Of Inspiration

In general, football head coaches are pretty much the dullest, weirdest, most wooden-brained group of men on earth, just a bunch of sweaty cosplaying doofuses blindly guessing at how to do their ridiculous job and what it even means to be good at that job, which probably isn’t really one job at all but rather several…

ESPN Has Created Another Phony News Cycle Out Of Its Own Fart ESPN Has Created Another Phony News Cycle Out Of Its Own Fart

“Anthony Davis trade talk is the biggest story in the NBA,” screeches the headline on this Zach Lowe article on ESPN.com. In a blog making broadly the same argument over on the Ringer, Kevin O’Connor writes that a Davis trade could cause “a seismic shift in the league,” like trades involving Wilt Chamberlain and…

Visionary Brain Genius Elon Musk Has Invented The World's Worst And Most Expensive Subway Visionary Brain Genius Elon Musk Has Invented The World's Worst And Most Expensive Subway

If you are anything like me, many times you have been riding the subway and have had the thought, “What is wrong with this dang subway is that it is not exponentially more expensive and slower than this.” Many times you have seethed, through clenched teeth, “Goddammit, it just churns my guts that this subway does not…

Everywhere Is Gross

Today, we’re talking about chuds, Nick Foles, Home Depot, overpopulation, and more. 

Nothing Means Anything, But John Wall Was Great Last Night Nothing Means Anything, But John Wall Was Great Last Night

John Wall is still pretty good. It’s okay to have forgotten.

Irish Rugby's Mike McCarthy: Please Specify That It Is I Who Should Not Be Coaching The Green Bay Packers Irish Rugby's Mike McCarthy: Please Specify That It Is I Who Should Not Be Coaching The Green Bay Packers

Back on Nov. 26, our Lauren Theisen published a blog on our website titled “Mike McCarthy Shouldn’t Be Coaching The Packers Anymore.” Based on the word “anymore” in the headline, and the accompanying photo (of now-former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy), and also the text of the blog, which described at…

Dang, I Guess They Have "Oat Milk" Now? Dang, I Guess They Have "Oat Milk" Now?

All the time, people (editors, for example) are insisting that blogs have to have “a point” or must be “about something”; they are saying things like “Bert, what is this blog” and “I honestly forgot you worked here until just now and I think I preferred it that way.” That’s just how it is for all of us in The Digital…

Boca Juniors Take Copa Libertadores Lead Via This Absolutely Gorgeous Nahitan Nández Pass

The second leg of the infamously delayed Copa Libertadores final is happening today in Madrid; the soccer knowers will have more and better things to say about it than I could. I just want to call attention to this stunning 45th-minute pass from Boca Juniors’ Nahitan Nández, ahead to a streaking Darío Benedetto, that…

Some Basketball Stuff The Chicago Bulls Did While The Boston Celtics Were Beating The Stuffing Out Of Them Some Basketball Stuff The Chicago Bulls Did While The Boston Celtics Were Beating The Stuffing Out Of Them

So, ah, it didn’t go real great for the Bulls last night, as they played their second game in as many days, at home against the hot and better-rested Boston Celtics. It took the Bulls more than six minutes to score their first point, a free-throw; they were down 18 before they made an actual field goal. It only got…

Luka Dončić Went Nuts For Two Minutes And Crushed The Rockets Luka Dončić Went Nuts For Two Minutes And Crushed The Rockets

With a little over four minutes remaining in last night’s Rockets-Mavericks game, Chris Paul drove hard at rookie Luka Dončić, then used a step-back dribble (and a, uh, conspicuously extended left elbow) to separate for a short jumper in the middle of the lane. The basket gave the Rockets an eight-point lead, 100-92;…

So, Andrew Wiggins Is Doing Great So, Andrew Wiggins Is Doing Great

Okay, so, the following otherwise delightful tweet, by Carter Rodriguez of SB Nation’s Fear the Sword blog, isn’t quite right.

Do Not Blot Out The Sun Do Not Blot Out The Sun

Probably nothing anyone does at this point stands more than a remote chance of averting any but the very most extreme, apocalyptic tolls humanity’s trashing of the planet could inflict on the global ecosystem and human society within the next few decades. The time when people could have addressed this already-ongoing…

Old Tony Parker Stepped In And Gave Kemba Walker A Break, And It Ruled

Two minutes and seven seconds remained on the clock in last night’s Celtics-Hornets game, and Kemba Walker was tired. He had every right to be: To that point, he’d scored 40 points—18 in the fourth quarter alone—in just under 37 minutes of playing time. And these were not ordinary minutes, but rather Kemba Walker…
