What's the Impact of Wiggins' Words?

If you are a fan of women’s basketball, it’s tough not to be a little freaked out about what Candice Wiggins said this week.  The WNBA has been on life support for several years now, with many of its stars forced to play overseas in order to earn anything close to what their skills are […]

The Cat's Outta the Bag

A look into the fact and fiction of the Ben Simmons debacle, an example of how vague the truth can be in an era of social reporting, and a lesson in how to talk a lot without saying anything at all. So, uh, yeah. Ben Simmons is officially out for the year.  If the Embiid […]

Bringing Iverson to a New Generation

The Boston Celtics are on a tear, and there’s only one man to thank for it. Their firebrand, charismatic leader may be towered over by the rest of his team, but Isaiah Thomas is the heart, soul, and offensive Atlas for the second-seeded Cs.

Bring the Waiters Romance Full Circle

No Love, No Problem

Things are about as bad as they could possibly be for a team that still has LeBron James on the roster. Kevin Love is out for six weeks, J.R. Smith for three or four. The Cavs have only a two-game lead in the Eastern Conference, and LeBron is playing so many minutes that by the start […]

Baylor's Crime Bears FBS Consequences

As you no doubt heard, the Big XII voted this week to withhold a percentage of Baylor’s conference television revenue until the school provided positive evidence that it has effectively dealt with the rampant sexual abuse by athletes. This is a ballsy move, worthy of praise, but I wonder about the fallout when schools face financial […]
