Kevin Durant Could Be Pat Riley’s Final Conquest — The Undeniables And now he wants Kevin Durant Kevin! Kevin!!! In the Internet Age, monoculture is unachievable. But there remain a few things that we can all agree on.​ The Ringer is looking at this rarefied group all week. These are our Undeniables . I heard a great Pat Riley story once.

The Sports Guy: Levels of Losing 2.0 — September's mortifying Mets collapse prompted me to finally update my "Levels of Losing" column from 2002, which was culled from years and years of unfortunate experiences as a sports fan. Please note that we're ignoring run-of-the-mill losses and concentrating on memorable defeats (buzzer-beaters, blowouts, choke jobs, etc.)

Kevin Durant’s Conundrum - The Ringer — Kevin Durant and the Thunder were 'thisclose' to history. But they missed. Now what? I kept thinking about Kevin Durant during Game 1 of the NBA Finals, if only because it feels like we already HAD the Finals. Earlier this week, Durant came as close as you could come to winning a playoff series without actually winning it.

Bill Simmons: The Levels of Losing — A few weeks ago, I was trapped at home on a Friday night. My wife and daughter were away. My son was asleep. The Celtics had just blown a winnable game in Atlanta. I was flipping channels and thinking about things like, "I wish we had gone for Jamal Crawford over Rasheed Wallace" and "I wish Rasheed Wallace didn't have bigger breasts than Rashida Jones."

A visit with Mideast refugees on Hungarian border — More states in the United States are announcing their reluctance to accept refugees from Europe, and their thinking is understandable. Right after Labor Day when the refugees hit the town of Rosce on the Serbian-Hungarian border, I was with a friend from Bratislava driving across Hungary with supplies for them.

Best of luck to Bob Holmes, who's retiring today from the Boston Globe (and believed in me way back when). Great career, helped so many.
