What does our animosity towards LaVar Ball say about us?

In sports, you need heat, if not hate, and every drama needs a villain. If LaVar Ball didn’t exist, it would be necessary to invent him. Loud mouth! Helicopter dad! Beelzebub! Usually, such vitriol is reserved for people who have caused you personal anguish.Charles Barkley has called Ball the most disliked person in sports. Nike executive and former coach George Raveling described...

  Say goodbye to Bo “Stoney” Reynolds and Gary Ganja. After less than a half-year on air “Smokin 94.1 FM” is cashed.

The New York Times cleverly trolls the New York Knicks

The New York Knicks are a raging dumpster fire. A calling-all-cars, hide-the-women-hide-the-children dumpster fire. Once a proud NBA franchise, the Knicks are somewhere between Courtney Love and Rush Limbaugh on the competence scale. Unfortunately, some poor minions have to actually cover this team for a living.
