Woo-woo or not, compassion is needed today more than ever, and perhaps mindfulness can help bring us there. Through Mumford's book, we can all learn to be Mindful Athletes in our day-to-day lives.
Derrick Rose, Chris Paul and Stephen Curry are unofficial symbols for black fatherhood via the NBA, and they are repeatedly being attacked for bringin...
As with everything, it depends how you define the question. If "post moves" is--as I believe it is--the ability to conjure up a sequence of basic post fundamentals into much larger, connected, evolving, and unique combinations, then this is what I have to say about that:
Though there aren't any Jewish starters in the upcoming NBA finals between the Warriors and the Cavaliers, that doesn't mean Jews don't love basketball. One of those is a recent Jewish USC graduate, a true superstar, Sam Fein.
Warriors advance to the NBA Finals. I have to say it again because this perennial cellar dweller team has done something they haven't accomplished in the last 40 years.
So what is it like to sit ON their bench during a playoff game?? Well, me and my friend, Gil, got to do exactly that last night and it was IN-CRED-I-BLE.
Guys like Green are hard to find. It's going to be even harder to try to coach up the next Draymond Green. Some of what he does on the court isn't taught, it's innate.
When Josh Smith misses on his threes, the ball looks like a misguided missile. But man, can he pass. He lobbed and backdoored the Mavs to death in the second half to spearhead a 13-0 stretch that blew a one-point game wide open and gave Houston a 2-0 lead in their series.
Connecting and serving the community is part of our core values at the Los Angeles Lakers organization.
The Volvo Ocean Race sets sail again. The 12th edition of the around-the-world departs soon from Alicante, Spain, and ends in Gothenburg, Sweden, in late June 2015. With 11 ports of call and nearly 40,000 nautical miles, it's a voyage right out of Moby Dick.
The nation has largely decided to paint Carmelo Anthony, an easy target already, as a villain because we've been unable to paint LeBron James as one.
Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith were very wrong about the NBA's best coach, and their integrity as high-profile, respected sports journalists should compel them to say so.
The San Antonio Spurs trounced the Miami Heat to win the NBA Championship. But even if they hadn't won, they'd still be rewarded with huge paydays. ...
When both teams are at their best, the Spurs motion O is a perfect foil to the Heat's trappy D: San Antonio flows quickly from one action into the next, each player cutting constantly as the ball whips around, in search of the open man.
The one guy for the Spurs who can change this series is Kawhi Leonard -- nobody else on the roster can defend LeBron James that well. But what Leonard did in Game 3 was not only bother James (22 points and seven turnovers) as well as force him to use screens for offense, but also completely take over the game offensively. Leonard -- who, ironically, hails from Los Angeles and went unrecruited by the LA schools before going to San Diego State -- scored a career-high 29 points on 10-13 shooting.
The Heat ask Bosh to fill a near-impossible role: to play like a Nowitzki-Aldridge hybrid, but without the post-touches that help those guys get into an offensive rhythm.
