Host: Any Given Wednesday (HBO 10pm) - @anygivenweds or Founder: The Ringer - follow @ringer. Also: The Bill Simmons Podcast!

The London Chronicles, Vol. 2: Handball! (Handball?) Handball! — The London Olympics have taken good-natured heat because their logo looks a little like Lisa Simpson performing a sex act, and because their official mascot looks a lot like a fancy futuristic penis. Both quirks fit in splendidly with London, the world's most perverted city.

Johnny Bananas Reveals Why He Took the Money on ‘The Challenge’ — On Wednesday night's Challenge: Rivals III finale, Johnny Bananas took advantage of a special wrinkle in the show and stabbed his partner, Sarah, in the back. At stake? $275,000. Rather than split the money with Sarah, he took the pot for himself.

The Bill Simmons Podcast — HBO and The Ringer 's Bill Simmons discusses the world of sports and beyond with a rotating crew of celebrities, athletes, and media members, as well as mainstays like Cousin Sal, Joe House, and other friends and family members who suspiciously always happen to be available.

The Kevin Durant Narrative Is Unfair — Bill Simmons and Joe House break down why KD made his choice on the latest 'Bill Simmons Podcast' This transcript has been lightly edited for clarity. It's been a wild week in NBA free agency.

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.)

Podcast: Jimmy Butler Is Not Worried About Those Rumors — On the latest Bill Simmons Podcast, Jimmy Butler stopped by to discuss being a draft steal, his old coach Tom Thibodeau, and guarding LeBron James and Steph Curry. He visited amid trade rumors about him, but we'll let him tell you about that.

LeBron James’s Life Is Constructed to Keep Him on the Court — This transcript has been lightly condensed and edited. Malcolm Gladwell called in to the latest Bill Simmons Podcast. He and Bill covered a host of topics, including the Warriors' reinvention of the basketball wheel, the expanding pool of NBA stars, and Kevin Durant's next destination.

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."
