Click on photo to read more about La Liga’s goal-scoring race

It looks like most of the European football leagues are going to have exciting finishes. Perhaps the most exciting will be La Liga if Barcelona can somehow get back within the grasp of Real Madrid. On top of that, you can add the goal-scoring title, which should be brilliant down to the finish.

When Did it Become OK for Coaches to Publicly Lay Out Their Teams’ Dirty Laundry?

I’m a bit of two minds on this, but I want to see if I can come to a cogent point. When Stan Van Gundy let it be known to the media that Dwight Howard was working to get him fired, minutes before Howard himself was set to face the media, I couldn’t help but stand and slow clap (in my head, of course). It was the ultimate F.U. to Dwight who has ran roughshod over his coach, the...

The Starting Lineup: Howard Could Be Done For The Year

If the Orlando Magic were screwed before… man, I don’t even know what they are now. The latest Dwight Howard status update has him at “50/50 for the playoffs” (that’s according to Stan Van Gundy), and now Big Baby’s gone down with a sprained knee. The Baby injury, assuming he misses at least a little time, leaves the Magic with four healthy bodies which stand 6’10″...

Box Score: Magic 100, Cavaliers 84

Maybe the Cavaliers should have kept Luke Harangody around for this game, too. On paper, the Cavaliers should have had a chance in this game. With Dwight Howard already out for this game with an injury, his backup Big Baby Davis went down with injury early in this contest. That should have cracked the door open for the Cavaliers to play a tough game and sneak out a win. Instead,...
