Review: Boys Among Men


Grantland was the best website to read basketball stories. Zach Lowe wrote detailed explanations about a team’s make-up, specifically their offensive and defensive tendencies and philosophies. Bill Simmons wrote extended commentary about what kind of mark a certain player would leave. Jonathan Abrams wrote stories about the successes and failures of several NBA players. He […]

Thoughts about Philadelphia’s reported trades


It’s not the off-season until the Eagles do something drastic. Not that trading away DeMarco Murray, Kiko Alonso and Bryon Maxwell was the most drastic thing the Eagles have done, but it literally wiped away everything Chip Kelly did his lone year as general manager.
