Washington's Biggest Outlier

Forget about Geno Auriemma and his 110-plus victories for a second. Forget about UConn and its chase for a fifth consecutive national championship. Everybody around Connecticut feels like dreaming, alright, but during the past four years, a parallel microcosm-of-the-impossible has been brewing in Washington. These Huskies, the ones from Seattle, have seen the legend of […]

NBA Time Machine: 2006-07 Dallas Mavericks

It is often said that winners write the history books. Whether in wars, politics or any other area, where a winner emerges, it is true that hardly anyone ever talks about the loser. Nobody remembers the 2008 US election year as the time John McCain lost the presidency to some other guy. You can put […]

Colin's Race

It’s been two weeks since the 2017 NFL year began on March 9. During the past few days we have seen multiple free agents, restricted and unrestricted, sign deals here and there – some just with money in mind, others making it clear that winning is their top priority.

Indiana's Coaching Dilemma

I’ve never had a lot of love for Tom Crean. The way he stalks around on the sideline during games always seemed like an affectation, like he wanted to deflect attention away from his players and toward himself (as if college basketball coaches weren’t already getting enough attention). Crean has never been a brilliant in-game strategist, and […]

Making The Case: MVP Edition

Back in 2012, Bill Simmons suggested altering the size of the NBA MVP trophy based on the quality of the MVP race and the “transcendence of the MVP’s season itself.” If that idea had ever been adopted, right now we’d be in the midst of a 25-pound race that’s going to come right down to […]

2017 Free Agency Crash Course

Since 1992 implemented the idea of the unrestricted free agent, the NFL offseason has turned into an insane game of 52 Card Pick-Up around the time most other people are distracted with March Madness brackets (I’ve got Kentucky this year). 2017 has been no exception: stunning trades, huge players up for grabs, and big, big signings […]

Building a Wall

The Dallas Cowboys have established a recipe for success in the NFL by building a wall. No, not that wall, but the Great Wall of Dallas. The Cowboys cycled part of the NFL away from a pass-heavy attack trend, and back to a balanced offense. Sure, a lot of this was preventing team owner and […]

Ball in the Family

Once the premier college basketball program in America, the UCLA Bruins had fallen on hard times in the new millennium. While the Bruins attracted players like Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook, and Arron Afflalo, all great players that went on to great NBA success, UCLA has not been a perennial contender. Aside from a nice stretch […]

The President's Inaugural Ball

Malcolm “The President” Brogdon was drafted 36th overall in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks, with the expectation that he would be able to contribute quickly to a young team. Thirty-one games into the season, Brogdon found his way into the starting lineup. One game later, he recorded his first triple-double (15p/10r/12a) against the Chicago […]
