LBJ’s blocked shot? BFD.

Monday, June 10th, 2013

In Game 2 of the NBA Finals, LeBron James blocked a white guy's shot and it was somehow enough to blow up the internet universe. Though there's no question LeBron's fourth-quarter stuff of Tiago Splitter was an impressive feat of athleticism, the overreaction made me wonder what life would have been ...

Why LeBron Made The Wrong Decision

Friday, February 4th, 2011

If this NBA season has taught us anything, it's that LeBron James' decision to abandon Cleveland was not exactly misguided, at least outside of that whole terrible execution thing. (Involving Jim Gray in anything pretty much guarantees you of terrible execution). The woeful supporting cast he had with the Cavaliers ...

LeBron: Almost As Popular as iCarly

Monday, July 12th, 2010

The ratings are in for LeBronapalooza, aka the Bron-Bron Fellatiathon, also known as "The Decision."* As expected, it was a ratings bonanza. I guess. With 9.95 million viewers, the program was the third-highest rated show on cable this year, trailing only the Pro Bowl and an episode of Nickelodeon's "iCarly." Wait. Whaaaaaaa? The most ...

Case Closed

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Three years ago, I wrote my first real blog post for this site attempting to determine which town was America's Most Tortured Sports City. It's still the most commented upon piece I've done here.

King Ralphs

Friday, May 14th, 2010

Big ups to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who became the first team to trail by just three baskets with over a minute left to play in a playoff game and made no attempt whatsoever to stop the clock or get the ball back from the opponent. The pathetic ending aside, one other ...

Gimme A Break

Friday, March 12th, 2010

As my Rashaan Salaam No. 31 attests, buying jerseys has never been a particularly wise investment. It's only gotten worse as the years have gone on. Even when you buy the jersey of a bona fide star, odds are he won't be around forever. How many Chargers fans ever thought ...

Whoomp! There It Is! NBA Jam’s Long Awaited Revival

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

Boomshakalaka! NBA Jam is back! From the What-Took-Them-So-Long Department, Nintendo has announced plans to remake the basketball video game classic for Wii. Scheduled out later this year, the game is expected to closely resemble the original with the game’s creator, Mark Turmell, involved in the title’s reclamation. I was obsessed with NBA ...
