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
Well it’s done. The absurd odyssey between Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs is finally over. In a move that would have shocked people a week ago, Leonard was dealt to half the US’s favorite country during an election year, Canada. The result is a super team of Leonard, Kyle Lowry, the ghost of Vince Carter, and Drake. What a force to be reckoned … Continue reading Who Does America Root For If It’s A Warriors Raptors Final?
NBA free agency has started and so continues the unending news cycle that is “the association.” The most notable news has come out of California with the Los Angeles Lakers stocking up as much talent as they can as they look for a title push with LeBron James and the Golden State Warriors signing embattled center, DeMarcus Cousins, just last night.

For those of you who aren’t up to date, here are the spark notes. Jordan is 6-0 in the NBA finals, James is 3-6 Jordan won a big game when he was hungover once, James won an important game while … Continue reading If LeBron James Has Any Sense He Will Sign With The Charlotte Hornets This Offseason
This morning my friend texted me saying that the last 72 hours have proven to him that the NBA is the king of American sports. I’m sure your friends have done the same. I’m not projecting anything on anyone here. On the off chance that I am doing that, just take five minutes out of your day (if you’re a slow reader) and read the … Continue reading The NBA Is Not King No Matter What Your Friends Tell You
ESPN has been a really horrible presence in my life for a while now. It’s no secret that if there’s one thing everyone wants from the worldwide leader in sports, its the return of endless highlights. It’s about as close as we millennials come to our parents in terms of reflecting on “the good ole days.” While I could write all day on that topic, … Continue reading ESPN Thinks We’re Idiots
