Doug Collins Admits He’s Got More Work To Do Than He Once Thought

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

If we've learned one thing about Doug Collins, it's that he's not going to beat around the bush. He didn't as a commentator and he hasn't as a coach, which is what he's doing now -- or at least trying to do -- with the Philadelphia 76ers. I say trying because ...

Likely going to Philadelphia, Evan Turner: “I Want to Be One of the Best Ever”

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Get your dancing shoes out.  It’s March Madness!  When I started to fill out my bracket, I realized that the Midwest region is absolutely loaded.  I know some people have talked about how hard of a road Kentucky has to the Final Four, but I think teams in the Midwest ...
