- Green Ruling Highlights Inconsistency In NBA's Front Office
We have all seen the kick that was the talk of the sports world on Monday. Just in case anyone went on a strike against any outlet of news, I'm talking about Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green kicking Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams in the private parts in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals Sunday night in Oklahoma Ci
- Looking To The Future In Portland
Entering the season predicted to win some 26 games, the Blazers were viewed by many as a team without a chance at any kind of a successful season. As we all know the Blazers shattered expectations, not only by making the playoffs, but also by reaching the 5th seed in a western conference with a crowded lower-mid section of t
- A Case For The Cavs
We've all heard the talk, the talk that the WCF might be more like the championship round than the Finals. I understand the thinking behind these talks, but I can't help but point out how disrespectful this is to LeBron James and his team out in Cleveland. Does LeBron have a stellar record in the in the Finals?
- Can We Please Stop Complaining About Missed Calls?
Here we are, watching the reality show we like to call the NBA Playoffs. Since we are talking about postseason play, the attention should be on the teams who are left competing for the championship, but of course, it's the officiating that seems to get all of the headlines. Before I get into why all of the crying about the referees has to stop, let
- Are We Really Seeing Anything New With The Cavaliers?
Lost in all of the shuffle of all of the critical injuries we have seen in this year's NBA Playoffs is the run the Cleveland Cavaliers have been on in the Eastern Conference. The Cavaliers, who are the No. 1 seed in the East, swept the Detroit Pistons in the first round, and dismissed the Atlanta Hawks out of the conference semifinals in the same f
- Joerger, Grizzlies Hold Their Heads Up High Despite Sweep
As we watch the NBA Playoffs work their way through the first round, we have seen storylines start to play themselves out in a way a lot of us wouldn't have even imagined at the beginning. The defending champion Golden State Warriors watched their point guard and reigning league most valuable player Stephen Curry injure his right ankle, then sprain
- Latest Deflategate Ruling Brings More Light To NFLPA
I know everyone thought we were finished talking about the Deflategate scandal. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who was originally suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season for his supposed role in the scandal, saw his punishment overturned by a federal judge, Richard M. Berman. Brady went on to play the entire season, and a
- Curry's Absence Says More About Rockets Than Warriors
The Golden State Warriors are scheduled to play the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of their Western Conference first round playoff series Thursday night in Houston. Of course, the biggest concern in the sports world is the status of Warriors point guard and reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry. Curry is nursing an injury to his right ankle, a
- Some Logic Finally Being Instilled In Cleveland?
The Cleveland Browns, since coming back to the National Football League before the 1999 season (the original franchise relocated to Baltimore and became the Ravens in 1996), have been one of the most inept teams to watch in recent memory. The Browns haven't made the playoffs since 2002, and they have had five head coaches since the beginning of the

- Don't Blame The Warriors For Misfortunes of Other Teams
Over the past few years in the NBA, we have seen a major transition from traditional lineups, who prefer to play from the inside out, to smaller lineups designed to push the tempo and cause match-up problems. Of course, no team has been more successful in playing this style than the defending champion Golden State Warriors. Not only are they leadin
- Fitting Way To Go Out for Bryant
On Wednesday night, we saw one of the most storied careers in NBA history come to an end. Kobe Bryant, who spent all of his 20-year career as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, begins a new chapter in his life after going out the way we probably all should have expected. In the Lakers' 101-96 victory over the Utah Jazz, Bryant scored 60 points and
