    Jeff Caplan

    So's Bill Simmons and Chad Ford are co-hosting a lovely, little pre-draft chat Wednesday when the funny one (Simmons) drops this gem at the end: "I have a tiny nugget for you - I have an impeccable source that swears Shaq's No. 1 choice t...

  3. Careful what you ask for, Mr. Marion

    A few weeks ago, I flew to Vancouver, British Columbia, for an EA Sports shoot. The company was filming five NBA players, including Paul Pierce and Shawn Marion, in motion capture suits for "NBA Live 08," so EA offered me a chance to join them and be...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Thinking about the NBA playoffs while web surfing

    All right, we're pulling out all the stops today: NBA playoff thoughts, reader e-mails, follow-ups to last Friday's mailbag, some weekly links ... it's like the garage sale of basketball blogs. But before we get to that, I need to show you something:...

  6. One basketball nation, under Duncan

    If you want to win a championship, Tim Duncan remains the best player in the league to accomplish that particular goal. We covered most of the reasons in last week's magazine column, but three points couldn't be mentioned because of the 1,200-word li...

  7. Nowitzki's career is on the clock

    Dirk Nowitzki was outscored by Maurice Ager. Dirk Nowitzki didn't attempt a shot from closer than 13 feet. Dirk Nowitzki got dunked on by Matt Barnes. Dirk Nowitzki finished with more turnovers than field goals. Dirk Nowitzki's 67-win team got bounce...

  8. Sorry, Dirk, you're no MVP

    We're headed for the most awkward moment in NBA history within the next 10 days. Here's how it will play out: (We see Jim Gray, David Stern and Dirk Nowitzki standing awkwardly in front of a single camera at halftime of a Round 2 playoff game.) ...

  9. Bill Simmons: Basketball is at a Crossroads

    Henry Abbott

    Watching O.J. Mayo put Bill Simmons into a "my word the future of basketball is selfish and bleak" funk that even Kevin Love couldn't get him out of. These kinds of criticisms of basketball are not new, of course, but Simmons says it better, and mana...

  10. Down with the O.J. Mayo Era

    If you missed the McDonald's All-American Game Wednesday night, you missed an appalling 4-for-17 performance by O.J. Mayo, who has a legitimate chance to replace Vince Carter as my least favorite NBA star of all-time before everything's said and done...

  11. A few questions, a few links

    Wanted to clarify something from yesterday's blog: Some readers wondered why I'd praise this year's NCAA Tournament (which has featured few upsets and a Final Four with two No. 1 seeds and two No. 2 seeds) and dismiss last year's tournament (which fe...

    Henry Abbott

    Bill Simmons is not happy with my all-time best center picks, and it looks like I'm out of his "five": Tonight's Legal Seafoods trivia question: Who's the only person who won consecutive MVPs playing for two different teams? That's easy: ...

  13. Oden vs. Durant: Who's got upside?

    I was flooded with e-mails over my recent column comparing Greg Oden, Kevin Durant and Joakim Noah as potential No. 1 picks in the 2007 NBA Draft. The most interesting e-mail came from columnist Bill Simmons. While Bill agreed with the bulk...

  14. 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...

  15. MC: MVPs and books

    One follow-up to today's Cowbell column (featured below): When I linked to the David Halberstam book on Amazon, I didn't realize that my book was featured on his page. Admittedly, I should have looked to make sure. Now I have e-mailers claiming that...
