How Long Will Manning's Records Last?

Love him or not, Peyton Manning was the most statistically prolific quarterback in NFL history. He left the NFL holding several major records, including wins, passing yards (season and career), touchdowns (season and career), MVPs, 4th quarter comebacks, and game ...

Why I Support Colin Kaepernick

Unless you don't care about the NFL and even then you would probably have to live under a rock, Colin Kaepernick has sent waves across the sports and media world for his refusal to stand for the national anthem ...

Kevin Durant to the Warriors and the NBA Apocalypse

Six years ago, LeBron James sat in front of Jim Gray then of ESPN and fatefully announced his taking of his talents to South Beach, promptly causing massive uproar across the sports world, NBA world in particular. I shared in ...

What Does 73 Mean Now?

Holy God what a Game 7! It was everything we ever wanted in a Game 7, complete with one hell of a game winner by Kyrie Irving. As much as I wanted the Warriors to win, this is all I ...

Why Doesn't the NBA Have a "Conn Smythe" Trophy?

Congrats to the Pittsburgh Penguins for winning the Stanley Cup and Sydney Crosby on capturing the Conn Smythe Trophy. This got me thinking about the NBA and wondering why the NBA doesn't have it's own "Conn Smythe" Trophy ...

Draymond Green's Suspension and Enough being Enough

It's no secret I want the Warriors to win. I've had enough with people dismissing the Warriors and every record they break as somehow fraudulent. It's ignorant and obnoxious and deep down I know that those fools ...

@Richard Van Heertum What is your point on NFL players playing 16 regular season games? Is it that NFL players shouldn't get paid like NBA players because they only play 16 games or that they should get more because ...

Von Miller deserved to be the highest paid player for this year's crop of free agents (not counting Luck, who wasn't a free agent). Each top-five or so guy at his position or on his side of the ...

@Joshua Thompson While it does seem ridiculous to see bench and reserve NBA players getting as much as the reigning Super Bowl MVP, it's kind of an apples and oranges comparison. First, the NBA is experiencing an insane income ...

The Patriots will be fine. I doubt they'll be worse than 2-2, although if I were to pick a second loss, it would be the Dolphins simply because the Dolphins always seem to play the Patriots the toughest of ...

@Curtis Rawls Do you do any research? There has been talk from Chris Broussard, Brian Windhorst, and others that the Warriors were going to try to get Durant starting last year. Durant to the Warriors talk has been going on ...

@Curtis Rawls Not sure how you don't Steph Curry's record-setting, all-time great back-to-back seasons as "pure domination." Two seasons doesn't equal a bust in Springfield but he's on his way. I would point out there are ...

@Curtis Rawls No question Curry did not, for the most part, have a good Finals. He choked, no question. He was also playing on one knee. But his Finals performance doesn't invalidate two years of pure domination over the ...

@Curtis Rawls So just four minutes of him standing awkwardly at the podium, mumbling thanks, and then shuffling off? That would be classic Duncan.

@Tucker Pettigrew I don't think you quite get how the Warriors play. Their entire game is predicated on ball movement. It was in fact because of the passing and willingness to share the ball that Durant chose the Warriors ...

I would also point out, save for the one of the two lockout season, his Spurs won at least 50 games every year and they won the title that year anyway. That's insane.

Tim Duncan has always been one of my favorite all-time players. I've admired his focus, dedication, on-court brilliance, and of course the fact he won. He is one of those few guys who came in with tremendous hype and ...

@mickey bracey I'm confused as to why, as a Durant fan, this makes you sad? Do you think he's selling out? As a fan of Durant myself, the way I look at it is he's buying in ...
