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?

Since retiring from the NBA, John Salley has only gotten betta. He's just launched target BettaLifechallenge, an inspiring, energizing jumpstart into ...
As if it wasn't bad enough that center DeMarcus Cousins has been out for almost three weeks with viral meningitis. The Kings fired head coach Michael Malone early this week that sent shock waves throughout the organization.
I wondered why pro athletes have not responded with the same outrage to the racial bias and negative stereotypes that have infected their sport.
However, while it's easy to lament to the failings of our sports fandoms in 2014, there's no denying that there was also a lot of good to come from the past year.
Black athletes know what needs to be done. All that is missing is the will to do it. Now is the time to dispel the stereotypes about black athletes.
Enjoy the swan song of Bryant. He has moments of greatness that evoke the dominating superstar he has been. But, get used to a Lakers team that is allowing the most points per game in the NBA and has trouble scoring.
As someone who has dedicated his life to preparing his students to live active and full lives, I can't bite my tongue any longer. I can't remain silen...
