In Jalen Rose’s mind, there are only two possible destinations for Dwight Howard this summer: his current team, the L.A. Lakers, or the Houston Rockets. And you know what? If you ask him to pick one, he’s going with Houston. Based on what we know now, we can’t disagree.
Jalen Rose has been on a roll lately dishing dirt on the NBA’s social underbelly. After telling Grantland about how players strategically keep their girlfriends and wives separate in the stands, he justifies the party-monster lifestyle of players like J.R. Smith. “We get out of the stadium at midnight.” Great excuse to blow my ticket money on a few bottles of Cristal you’ll chug ten hours before 3PM tip-off.

Grantland Unveils Bracket For “Most Hated College Basketball Player Of The Last 30 Years,” Duke Gets Their Own Region
“Hate” is a strong word to use about anyone. And all these guys have probably contributed tens of millions of dollars to charity in their lives. What’s more, they are fathers and brothers and sons and mentors and DEAR GOD I HATED J.J. REDICK SO MUCH IT KEEPS ME UP AT NIGHT! He better win.
Pardon The Interruption Has Created A 15-Minute Smash Cut Of Its LeBron James Coverage Since His High School Days
Earlier today, Grantland employed the services of Erik Rydholm, the executive producer of ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption, who assembled a team of former PTI interns to splice together this: one glorious 15-minute video of Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon making snap judgments about LeBron James throughout his career. Enjoy, you perspective-loving dogs.
Grantland’s Bill Simmons recently sat down with Barack Obama, noted sports fan and President of the United States, to do a podcast that he’s wanted to do for some time. In addition to learning that he knew about Jeremy Lin before anyone else, we also got an insight into what kind of sports fan Obama is. Here are the five most important things we learned about POTUS’ fandom.
Charlie Pierce Joins Bill Simmons’ Website After Calling Bill Simmons A “Whiny Little Thin-Skinned Bag Of Breeze”
Shortly after Grantland launched a few months back, it ran a piece from what seemed an unlikely source: Charlie Pierce of Esquire and the Boston Globe. We were shocked by this since it was less than a year ago that Bill Simmons was sniping at a mysterious man named “CPP” on Twitter – “CPP” standing for “Charles P. Pierce.” Then, we never saw Pierce’s name on Grantland again, and figured that was that. We were wrong.
We think this is a real commercial, because it’s on this actor’s official-seeming YouTube page and carries with it certain stylistic similarities to the first Grantland commercial. If it is real, and, again, we’re only 90% sure at this point, we have some questions.
Before author Shane Ryan got into that in earnest, though, he briefly mentioned that Flair has alcoholic cardiomyopathy, a heart condition brought on, as the name suggests, by alcohol abuse. Flair, apparently, took great issue with this. One problem, though: he’s admitted having the condition himself.
We exchanged emails with one of the writers who will be working on the new site, The Classical. Since this new site will feature many, many words, we decided to send him emails with many, many words. He answered with even more words.
What follows is a ton of words about The Classical.
