So… this is all just happening, huh? We’re just… not doing sports anymore? Sports are cancelled? What a world we live in. Not even referring to the world currently experiencing a global pandemic. I’m talking about the world that is coming to the harsh reality that we NEED sports in order to function. In the last 90 minutes, 4 people have just left my office. … Continue reading So Now What?
A few days ago the NBA struck while the iron was hot and unleashed a barrage of newsworthy nuggets now that the NFL’s 6 month long stranglehold of the general public’s attention came to an end. The most “basketball” of which was a four way trade between the Hawks, Timberwolves, Nuggets, and Rockets that sent notable names like Clint Capella and Robert Covington elsewhere. Cool … Continue reading Ja Morant Is The Prototype Athlete In Today’s World of Sports
I’m on a diet and don’t grocery shop. So I went into my local pub to get a salad for dinner. My order is the house salad, but only romaine lettuce, swap out the vinaigrette for caeser dressing, bacon bits, and extra croutons. I’m gonna look great for Thanksgiving, but I digress. While I was waiting for my order, I checked the TV to see … Continue reading Luka Doncic Is An Embarressment To European NBA Players
In the last few days, you’ve probably seen the internet petition/joke/suicide mission to invade Area 51 to see some aliens. “They can’t stop all of us,” is the mantra and it’s sound logic, really. I know the Air Force is the Air Force, and guns are guns, but a million people is a million people. I mean, have you ever seen World War Z? But … Continue reading Why Go To Area 51 When You Can Go To The NBA Headquarters
I was at a work training in California all last week. 10 hours a day in a windowless room, no cell service outside of wifi (which is only worth noting because none of my roommates have iPhones), and exclusively healthy lunches, which was maybe the most deflating thing about the whole ordeal, and that’s counting the nightly homework assignments. It was like college, except I … Continue reading So What Did I Miss?
It’s hard to believe that Knicks fans are shocked about everything the team didn’t do in this year’s free agency. For a team that deserves no optimism, and almost never receives it (outside of some Harvard kid being good for 10 days), Knicks fans always garner this bizarre sense of hope every offseason. In reality, it’s the media’s fault. New York being New York lends … Continue reading Imagine Being More Deadly Than A Disease
8 years ago, the Philadelphia 76ers embarked on a path that would be more uphill than down. They committed to the idea of being the worst team in the NBA for years on end, gathering top talent in the draft, to create a homegrown super team. “The Process,” as it came to be known became a well-documented story line. Over the years, a team that … Continue reading Philadelphia Learned A Hard Lesson About Trust Last Night
Last night was the most overrated night in American sports. The NFL Schedule Release. And I hate it. A lot. Even more than the NBA preseason, pitchers and catchers reporting to Spring Training, or when Dan LeBetard is on PTI. While the rest of us are trying to focus on the NHL or Golden State Warriors Memorial Playoffs, the NFL is that annoying friend that’s … Continue reading The NFL Schedule Release Is The Bane Of My Existence
To call me a fringe NBA fan would be generous. Despite my birth certificate saying I’m 27, anyone who’s ever watched a game with me would assume I’m 30 years older for how many missed travel calls I scoff at. You’d think I saw “Pistol” Pete Maravich in his LSU days based on every fancy pass receiving a “who does this guy think he is?” … Continue reading We Will Look Back In History And Say D’Angelo Russell Saved The NBA
Are we in the trust tree? I hope so. Because I’m going to stop being polite and start getting real. I’ve been living among Massholes for 8 years now. I know these people better than they know themselves. Mostly because they are a very single-minded bunch, so they’re easy to predict. I’ve actually been very accepting of the success this city has had over the … Continue reading I’m A New Yorker Living In Boston And I Hate Everything
