When former Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand was paralyzed in October of 2010 while making a tackle against Army, he was undoubtedly told a list of things he’d never be able to do again. But since the incident, LeGrand has slowly regained feeling and sensation in many parts of his body, becoming an inspiration to many across the country. Tonight, LeGrand tweeted out a photo of himself signing autographs of himself back in his Rutgers days. While he is only able to do so using his mouth, it’s just another example of his will and dedication to give back to the community and prove people wrong. Seriously, this is awesome. Signing paintings of me back in my playing days so they could be raffled off at a charity events #lovegivingback twitter.com/EricLeGrand52/… — Eric LeGrand (@EricLeGrand52) May 2, 2013

Kevin Love injury a powerful argument for playoff reform

If you were to ask 100 people in a room about the length of the NBA’s first-round playoff series, you’d get a reasonable number of responses advocating a return to the best-of-five format: This Love/Olynyk incident is a reminder of why the NBA needs to go back to best-of-5. A meaningless game led to an unnecessary injury. — Llama Buffalo Fan (@chrisskreager) April 26...

Wizards sweep listless Raptors

For a team that won 49 games during the regular season, the Toronto Raptors were nowhere to be found during their humiliating four-game series against the Washington Wizards. Washington defeated Toronto by 31 points on Sunday evening, completing a ridiculous four-game sweep that saw John Wall and company outscore the over-matched Raptors by a total of 56 points.
