Miller, Liggins & Harrellson Embrace Leadership Roles as Brothers

One year ago, one of the most talented teams in the history of college basketball failed to make it to Indianapolis for the national semifinals. Three members of that team have played under two different coaches and on three very different Kentucky squads. Darius Miller, DeAndre Liggins, and Josh Harrellson’s roller-coaster ride in blue ranged [...]

Analyzing John Wall’s Dougie

I know – this obsession with John Wall’s Dougie is getting a little out of control. However, I just had to share this. Adam McGinnis from TruthAboutIt.net has put together a video that includes “commentary from Wizards players and Wall about his Dougie, hilarious Dougie banter courtesy of Wizards TV announcers Steve Buckhantz and Phil [...]

Comparing Kentucky Wildcats in 2009-10 to 2010-11

I’m not just going to blindly rave about this Kentucky Wildcats team a few weeks into the season. They’re young, inexperienced, and immature; they make the same mistakes that the 2009-10 Kentucky team did. But, that’s where the similarities end.

The Road Back to the NBA Goes Through Boston

I’m not the biggest NBA fan. I lost interest at the turn of the century with the worst draft class in the history of the sport. Oh, yes, you know what I’m talking about. That awful, awful class of 2000 that was headlined by Kenyon Martin and produced such busts like Stromile Swift (No. 2), [...]

NBA Rookie Transition Program Educating Youngsters

You’re a rookie who just made it into the NBA. Now, your third cousin removed from your mother’s side wants to get on your payroll as some kind of marketing advisor in your entourage. How do you say no? The guy’s family, right? The NBA attempts to combat the above situation by running a three-day [...]
