Kyrie Irving Has Already Thought About Being the Number One Pick

Friday, May 27th, 2011

It was just one week ago or so when former Duke point guard Kyrie Irving figured out where he would be playing basketball for the first portion of his NBA career. It’s going to be in Cleveland. Okay, let me rephrase. Barring something unforeseen happening from now until June 23rd, ...

Don’t Worry About the NFL Lockout Affecting Dwight Freeney’s Physical Conditioning and Preparation For 2011

Friday, May 27th, 2011

I have a hard time cheering for the Indianapolis Colts. The reasons don't matter much, but at the crux of it is the fact that I typically don't identify well with frontrunners. And though they've only hoisted one Lombardi Trophy in the Peyton Manning era, they've won an incredible number ...

The Dallas Mavericks moved onto the NBA Finals with a 100-96 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in game five of the Western Conference Finals. Shawn Marion and Dirk Nowitzki led the charge for Dallas by scoring 26 points a piece, but Nowitzki once again got all the press during ...

Pete Rose On Making The Hall Of Fame After He Passes: “That would probably to be honest with you piss a lot of people off.”

Friday, May 27th, 2011

It may just be a little ironic to me that Pete Rose appeared on Philadelphia sports radio yesterday due to the fact that Buster Posey had his ankle broken after a collision from the Marlins Scott Cousins. Who could forget Pete Rose colliding with Oakland catcher Ray Fosse in 1970 ...

Posey Is All Buster’d Up

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

The San Francisco Giants hopes of repeating as World Series Champs suffered a significant blow last night. After a collision at home plate with the Marlins Scott Cousins, Buster Posey may be lost for the season with a serious ankle injury. This is the type of injury the Giants won’t ...

Mo Williams on Mike Brown: “Defensively I haven’t been around no one better”

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

The shoes left behind by Phil Jackson will be very difficult for anybody to fill. The Lakers are turning to a former coach of the year to try and fill them. Mike Brown and the Lakers have a deal in place to make the former Cavs coach the new lead ...

Tim Hardaway Knows What Joakim Noah’s Going Through Because He’s Still Dealing With the Repercussions From Four Years Ago

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

What a bizarre last few months it's been in the NBA. In terms of the action unfolding on the court, it's business as usual. And though I personally think it's hard to argue that this year's playoffs is deserving of consideration as a top three or even five postseason, it's ...

Prince Fielder Leads Milwaukee Brewers to Ninth Straight Home Victory

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

As my former college roommate would probably say at this point, "Look at what the Crew is doing, Milwaukee's got something brewing."
