It took less than a full quarter of the first game of the NBA Finals to see how the rest of the series between Miami and San Antonio will go: Coach Gregg Popovich wants his team to control the pace of play at all costs.
Like the city of San Antonio itself, the Spurs were built by immigrants one brick at a time and meant to last. As America itself changes, I can't help but wonder if, in these Finals, we're getting a juxtaposition of the old America with the new.
This is the Final's rematch we've all been waiting for: the two best teams in the NBA set to square off -- the Lone Star Loners vs. the Heatles. One team is in desperate need of redemption, the other has a chance to cement their legacy as a team for the ages.
Can we call the Miami Heat a modern dynasty or are they just merely dominant? Do they need to beat the Spurs again, or, are they already there?
If you're in the city where the temperatures are high, why not get your adrenaline soaring as well? In case you're looking for something exciting to do, we've rounded up a few activities that are sure to get your heart pumping next time you're in Miami.
National Golf Day was May 21, 2014. There are so many great things about golf that extend far beyond the actual sport.
Athletes are concerned about their legacies on the playing field, however, imagine if athletes also started to be concerned with the legacies they leave with the foods they endorse?
While you might encounter a star or two shopping for home décor at Fendi Casa in South Beach, these five places just about guarantee a glitterati sighting (other than The Biebs, of course).
This is an opportunity for the NBA to do more than silence one racist owner. It's time to change the ownership paradigm.
When I see people wearing Nets apparel, I figure they're just reppin Brooklyn. That leaves the Nets in a potentially unique situation: everyone loves their brand, but not many people actually follow the team.
In one corner, the NBA, still reeling from the abhorrent, ugly comments from one of its owners -- a controversy of the highest order. In another corner, the National Football League, and the draft of its first openly gay player.
Pheww. Omg! We just witnessed the best first round of the NBA playoffs ever: 5 Game 7's (would've been 6 if not for Damian Lillard), 8 overtime g...
Guess we don't need those Game 5 tickets for the Heat vs. Bobcats. But, hey, no complaints -- we're the only team in the playoffs to sweep its adversary, and while doing it we looked Miami Strong!
Despite four pennants and two World Series victories, the Mets have embraced the lovable loser narrative. This is a difficult thing to define; clearly Mets fans to prefer their team to win, but the existence of this narrative, even though its relationship to reality is more tenuous, gives the Mets a more forgiving environment than some teams.
Is there such a thing as having too much talent? This is the perennial question facing the owners of big-time sports franchises -- not to mention the managers and coaches and players and fans. Does adding more and more talent add up to ever better team performance?
With the Pacers in rapid decline and the Heat sliding not far behind, anything seems possible. Check that: almost anything (sorry, Charlotte). With hopes of early upsets, here are my picks for the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
