In sports, we all love the "old days." Especially the ones that are a part of our childhood. They are not only memories, but feelings. The feelings make the memory that much larger than life. Sports is one of the only places where that can happen.
To the surprise of no one, New York Knicks inheritor James L. Dolan proved himself a bully and a jerk this week when he sent an email to a lifelong Knicks fan calling him a miserable person and an "alcoholic maybe".
I arrived early to a recent National Basketball Association (NBA) basketball game and immediately noticed the oddity of players on both teams, in addi...
The guy can still score, put butts in the seats at the Staples Center and has 32,482 career points. Maybe if the front office can put some pieces around him going into the final year of his contract, just maybe we will see Bryant go out on his own terms.
By watching two minutes of a Hawks game, it's evident that this team is completely cohesive on both ends of the court, they genuinely play team basketball, and they enjoy playing together. All these factors make the team especially dangerous, considering they're playing in a weak Eastern Conference.
It was announced before the start of the game that both DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay will be out of the lineup. But midway through the first quarter Gay checked in and added some spark to an already dominant offense. The Kings got off to one of their best starts while maintaining a good pace with the Clippers.
The journey to get here and compete is your first victory. And if you do compete and do the best that you can do, whenever you cross the finish line, you will be a champion.
Since I was a rookie in the NBA, I've been hosting a blessed opportunity while out on the road to hang out with a group of children and their parents affected by the skin condition alopecia areata, which I've had since I was 10.
Last night, the Kings took advantage of the LeBron-less Cavaliers to rout them 103-84. Sacramento was at their best, getting off to an explosive start and never looked back. Their last two wins have been decided by 19 or more points.
Hey Phil, play me. Please. I'm dead serious. I want to play for the Knicks. Like right away. And I promise you the team will do no worse with me than with that miserable overpaid bunch of losers you call a team.
We're a few days into the new year, the time we're most likely to resolve to make positive changes. So how's it going so far? Is that resolution to ea...
As years go, 2014 was an interesting one in the sports world. Some might characterize it as depressing while others may look back on it as exhilarating. Whatever the case may be we know that at some point in the future we will look back on the year 2014 with nostalgia.
This year, Urban Outfitters sold a "vintage" Kent State sweatshirt tastefully splattered with red paint while Donald Sterling's racial comments cost him his NBA franchise. It's been a raucous year in the public arena, expressed perfectly by a parade of PR blunders that is as impressive in scope as it is in sheer absurdity.
It's the end of the year, a new year just days away, a time when traditionally, people make resolutions. But our brains are overloaded, our bodies are overweight and I just got the feeling that everyone thinks, the hell with it, why bother to change, it's too late, anyway. It's not.
I am not asking for anything next Christmas. Instead, I want you to give it all away. With the exception of Carmelo, everyone can go. After all it is the season of giving, right?
The Book of Basketball by Bill Simmons should be considered the bible for basketball fans everywhere, and its crown jewel is The Pyramid, Simmons's idea for a new basketball Hall of Fame and his ranking of the 96 best players in basketball history.
