    Bill Barnwell

    During a weekend when the Premier League might very well have been decided in a classic in Liverpool, I found myself in London. Oh well. I don't think I could have afforded tickets to the title-decider, anyway. What I got to see instead in the c...

    Bill Simmons

    I know, I know ...; we're two days late with the weekly NBA bag again. In my defense, my entire life revolves around the free-falling Celtics, Chad Ford's Big Board 8.0 and endless conversations about Wiggins, Ja...

  6. The Betting Season

    Bill Barnwell

    Those damn Detroit Lions. As I look back at my 2013 preseason bets, all I can think about is how the Lions snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Sure, the second-half collapse that resulted in the firing of head coach Jim Schwartz probably didn&#...

  7. Letterman’s Last Great Moment

    Bill Simmons

    The old man set it up masterfully. He mentioned that his 67th birthday was coming up and waited for the "APPLAUSE" sign to flicker off. Sixty-seven. He'd been hosting a late-night show for half his life, he real...

  8. Fixing the NBA Playoffs

    Bill Simmons

    I didn't write an NBA Bag on Thursday because I knew David Letterman was stepping down. I wrote an NBA Bag because I've been doing mailbags ever since I started writing this column in 1997 ...; and only because I loved Letterman&#...

  10. An ‘Above the Rim’ Roundtable

    Bill Simmons, Rafe Bartholomew and Andrew Sharp

    In the year 1994, the movies were great. Greater than usual. Blockbuster or indie, rom-com or action thriller, there was something indelible about so many of them. Throughout 2014, Grantland will look back at some of the most memorable, belo...

  12. #TrueDetectiveSeason2

    Brian Phillips

    I am here to talk about love, but first I have to say something about hate, and about the purest, foulest, most unrepentant form of hate there is: namely, the hate that sports fans feel toward TV commentators. You've experienced this, ye...

    Zach Dionne

    This is the best time of year to be a Game of Thrones fan, and probably the best and worst time of year to be the 65-year-old world-inventor we call George R.R. Martin. It's great because he gets to see things like 7,000 costumed me...
