Whether LeBron knows it or not, three generations of his family once called Cleveland home. LeBron has classic, Great Migration heritage, and two branches of his family tree made their way from the South to Cleveland.
During the 2011 NBA lockout, many players headed overseas to play with foreign teams and keep their skills fresh. Stephen Curry, the star of the Golden State Warriors, took a different approach.
On the basketball court, instant replays may make the call, but in the real estate arena, there are no rules. And when it comes to professional ballers LeBron James and Stephen Curry, it's not just an all-out battle in the NBA Finals -- it's also a war for the real estate crown.
The evidence suggests that attracting a professional sports franchise to a city and building that franchise a new stadium or arena will have no effect on the growth rate of real per capita income and may reduce the level of real per capita income in that city.
Derrick Rose, Chris Paul and Stephen Curry are unofficial symbols for black fatherhood via the NBA, and they are repeatedly being attacked for bringin...
Today I read a letter from a high school teacher that was addressed to Stephen Curry, the highly coveted point guard for the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. Matt Amaral, the author of this letter, claims to be a big fan of Curry and an avid follower of the NBA.
Someone came in barking about Yelp! Apparently, it's some kind of site on the Internet. He said I was mentioned on it, rude, grumpy, miserable bastard bartender with a fixed scowl on his face and that is his good points. Something along those lines, so he says.
I have watched in amazement the unfair characterization of NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas. The host if inflammatory allegations about him are either factually untrue or distorted. As a result, the media has participated in not giving all of the facts about a case involving Madison Square Garden over eight years ago.
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:
I love you. But I have to ask you to do me a solid and make sure you don't ever come visit my high school. You see, Steph, if you come to my school you will be your usual inspiring, humble self and you will say all the right things. But the reason I don't want you to come has to do with what you won't say.
There is a tendency in sports to give breaks to the people who are good at their jobs. We should not do this. But it certainly seems to happen. But when it comes to Isiah Thomas, there is simply no evidence that he is actually good at judging talent.
Now that the NBA Draft Lottery has been determined, it's finally time to take a look at which pro prospects fit where and why. Minnesota Timberwolves fans cheered as their team secured the No. 1 overall pick in the May 19th lottery. Without further ado, here's my first 2015 NBA Mock Draft.
Here we are, in 2015, and Isiah Thomas is running a WNBA franchise. It seems fair to wonder, as a national issue, are we essentially saying racism is intolerable, but sexism, not so much?
It's easy to conclude that if your team is not still playing, that title contention is far away. Furthermore, to truly contend drastic changes must be considered. But I think the data tells a different story.
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.
To hire a person to lead a women's basketball team who was found guilty of sexual harassment seems, at a minimum, to be immensely tone-deaf. For others, it is the worst decision James Dolan -- chairman of Madison Square Garden -- has ever made.
