I've been living in this country for the past sixteen years and I still don't get your sports teams, your sports rules, your sports scoring, or your sports player transfer policies.
The common perception is that this deal couldn't happen because the Nets aren't able to put together a valuable offer for Howard. That's not the right way to look at it.
Maybe we can't pack up and head to the Grand Canyon, but sheer athletic brilliance can also take your breath away. After all, Marshawn Lynch's playoff run activated Richter scales across Seattle.
Raptors fans will cheer for you anyway, but signing in Toronto would give them the chance to cheer for you in person 41 games a year instead of once or twice.

Every good story needs a villain. And while heroes often come in the singular flavor of tall, dark and bland, an antihero can evoke deep, complex feelings. Having someone to root against is often more gratifying than having someone to root for.

For Adidas to promote the athleticism and contributions of a variety of African-American sports legends and then allow such a degrading symbol of African-American history to move toward production and advertisement is insensitive and irresponsible.
Demetrius Flores will likely never remember the day he met Dwyane Wade. That afternoon, in the pediatric ward of Miami's Baptist Children's Hospital, the cherub-faced four-year-old is cranky and exhausted.
