  2. Blazers don't deserve Bowie 2.0

    Warning: Do not read this if you're a Portland Trail Blazers fan. The three-word e-mail came this morning from someone who knows things: "Oden -- microfracture surgery." My three-word response: "Oh. My. God." It's one of the saddest stories ...

    Henry Abbott

    Brandon Roy is a very friendly guy. But when you put 16 of his head shots together in one place, it somehow seems less friendly. Bill Simmons chooses his MVP: 1. The Fans Why can't we win for putting up with such a brutal season? Aren't we the real ...

  5. Greg Oden: No. 1 with a bullet

    I'll remember Monday night's Florida-OSU game for five reasons: Florida cementing its status as one of the best non-UCLA college teams of the modern era; Billy Packer and Jim Nantz overlooking this very fact for most of the night; Greg Oden finally e...

  6. Searching for the real Greg Oden

    You know what's strange about Greg Oden's freshman season, considering everyone regards him as a franchise center and all? I've watched OSU 15-16 times this season and there wasn't a single game that left me saying, "Wow ... that guy's gonna be unnnn...

  7. NCAA renaissance peaks with great weekend

    I keep hearing the same points from readers over and over again: • I can't remember enjoying March Madness as much as I've enjoyed it this year. • Are the games particularly good this year or is it just me? • I ...

    Five quick updates on the Greg Oden-Kevin Durant Sweepstakes before we get to some housecleaning: 1. Let the tanking begin! After Milwaukee (25 wins) suspiciously announced that both Andrew Bogut AND Charlie Villanueva would miss the rest of the sea...

  9. Weekend wrap show

    Ten lingering thoughts from the weekend in college hoops: 1. The Kevin Durant Era has reached the point where I watch every Texas game with my TV room covered in protective plastic, like the kind used in mafia movies when they're bringing a stoolie ...

  11. Oden vs. Durant, Part 3

    A few weeks ago, after I wrote a column addressing Greg Oden vs. Kevin Durant, Bill Simmons e-mailed me and said he thought ESPN could devote a blog to the topic. (And Bill did start a basketball blog to cover this and other topics.) I continue to b...

  12. Midweek roundup

    I watched three college games (Gonzaga-St. Mary's, Wisconsin-Iowa and Florida-Kentucky) and most of the Oregon-Arizona game on Saturday, as well as Texas-Oklahoma State and the second half of Santa Clara-Gonzaga Monday night. Thanks to the power of T...

  15. Bill Simmons on Steve Nash and Kevin Durant

    Henry Abbott

    Simmons' excellent column captures the story of this season in the NBA: the Phoenix Suns. They're the show. They're the story. They're the team to watch. (Shameless plug, once again, for everyone to read Jack McCallum's book, which makes me enjoy wat...
