Dwight Howard On Vince Carter And Improving This Summer

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Dwight Howard took a lot of abuse during the NBA Finals.  After dominating the slow bigs of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Howard was ineffective offensively for the Magic averaging only 15.4 points per games while shooting under 50% and missing two huge free throws in game four.  While much of the ...

RC Buford On Blair, McClinton, Splitter And Jefferson

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

The Spurs just keep doing it.  When it comes to the draft, they always seem to fill the cupboard with smart selections no matter where they're slotted - they're at the back of the line, but they always find a little (or sometimes huge) prize.  From Tony Parker, to George ...

Romeo Crennel Speaks For The First Time Since His Termination

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

When Romeo Crennel was lured away from his defensive coordinator position with the New England Patriots to be the head coach of the once proud Cleveland Browns, he was as highly regarded as just about any coordinator in the National Football League. The Browns won 6 games during his first ...

Ed Reed Still Going Strong

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed just makes plays. Has ever since his days at the U. In 2008, Reed led the NFL with 9 interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns. Reed was in Cleveland last weekend for a former Miami Hurricane teammates' charity event, so he joined WKNR ...

If you think you're reading a movie script below, you're wrong, but it's not a far off assumption.  Bob Delaney, the current NBA referee, had a previous career working as an undercover cop in conjunction with the FBI in order to bring down organized crime in New Jersey (yes, it's ...

Austin Daye Talks About the NBA Draft Experience

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Austin Daye became the first-round draft pick for the Detroit Pistons last Thursday and comes out of college not necessarily "unheralded" -- he is, after all, a sophomore and on a high powered, nationally recognized team -- but perhaps with a touch of the unknown simply because, well, I'll say ...

Chris Andersen: Denver Is Gonna Need Me To Push For The ‘Ship

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Chris Andersen has cemented himself in this league for a long time.  A little bit like Dennis Rodman, the Birdman has made blocking shots and putback dunks a spectacle of sorts.  And, also a bit like Rodman, he's pretty good at it.  I don't mean to say Birdman's hustling style ...

Bart Scott Comes Back to Baltimore to Talk Michael Jackson

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Bart Scott was a long-time Baltimore Raven who is no longer with the team, because he headed up north to the New York Jets. Whatever, he's partnering up with former coordinator Rex Ryan, so it's all good I guess. And Scott still loves his B-more, because he's apparently living there anyway ...

Nogueira: This Fight Was Supposed To Happen In 2001

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

It is extremely hard to look past UFC 100 next weekend where there are basically three headline fights taking place in Las Vegas, but there's also a special event taking place at the end of August.  Portland will taste UFC blood for the first time and there's no doubt they'll ...
