  • How to feel about shutting down Carmelo Anthony
    Before the second half of the NBA season started, the New York Knicks made the decision to shut down small forward Carmelo Anthony for the rest of the year. Anthony has also decided to get surgery on his left knee, an injury that has bothered him throughout the season. I have mixed feelings about this whole situation with Anthony because, well, I t
  • Have we seen the best of Dwight Howard?
    When Dwight Howard was drafted by the Orlando Magic in 2004, the potential for him to be one of the best big men ever to play the game was through the roof. Fast forward to 2015, and one can't help but wonder if Howard has already reached the ceiling as far as all of that potential goes. Now in the middle of a four-year, $88 million contract with t
  • Will Clippers ever live up to hype?
    For the past few years, not many teams have had as much hype surrounding them as the Los Angeles Clippers. Honestly, there is a good reason for the hype. They do have arguably the best point guard in the NBA in Chris Paul, along with one of the best frontcourt duos in power forward Blake Griffin and center DeAndre Jordan. Shooting guard Jamal Crawf

  • Analyzing Kobe and his "Rebirth" Desire
    In an NBA TV interview with Ahmad Rashad, Lakers' SG Kobe Bryant said he is not retiring despite his recent string of injuries and is seeking a career "rebirth", which he compared to the success of the San Antonio Spurs who continue to win despite aging starters Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobli. He is driven to come back because it's a challenge and he

  • Mavs add frontcourt depth with Stoudemire
    The New York Knicks have waived PF Amar'e Stoudemire and the 12th year man will sign with the Dallas Mavericks if he clears waivers tomorrow evening. Stoudemire was in the final year of a 5-year $99.7 million deal he signed in 2010. After averaging 25.3 points in his first season with the Knicks, Stoudemire's scoring has steadily declined and as hi
  • It's time to end Hatergate scandal
    First it was Spygate, then Deflate-gate. What people may not know is there is, and has been, another scandal the New England Patriots have been dealing with for quite sometime. That would be the Hatergate scandal, where fans and media alike have tried to deny any little bit of credit the Patriots have earned over the course of the last decade and a
  • Deflate-gate unnecessary air for Patriots
    Super Bowl XLIX was played on Feb. 1, and all of the talk leading up to the game should have been about the matchup between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. Instead, the sports world has been engulfed in Deflate-gate, the Patriots' latest scandal questioning whether or not the team purposely used under-inflated game balls during their
  • My View on the desert showdown between the Patriots and the Seahawks
    For many years, we have heard and studied the history of the wild wild west as it was the home of showdowns, cowboys, horses, cactuses, and the backdrop story for the movie" Back to the Future III". Well now, the wild wild west can add something else to their tale, being the host of Super bowl XLIX as it will take place this Sunday in Glendale, AZ,
  • Conference Championship Picks
    Picks in bold. Green Bay @ Seattle If Aaron Rodgers was 100% healthy I'd be tempted to pick Green Bay. But his calf injury hampered his mobility against Dallas and the Seahawks pass rush is much more fearsome than that of the Cowboys. The Legion of Boom will lock down Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb which will lead to some coverage sacks. And a
  • Alex Neil Appointed Norwich Manager - The Revival?
    Alex...who? Not Ferguson, unfortunately, but the proven track record of Norwich's new manager, Alex Neil, is one to behold in high regard. The former Accies manager, formally known as Hamilton Academical, was a fan favorite at New Douglas Park during his playing and managerial career, guiding them to promotion from the Scottish Championship last se
