From Black Sports Online:

It doesn’t matter if you are 5 or 35 years old, your grandma always has something to say.

Check out this text message exchange between Kevin Durant and his grandmother, which he shared via his Instagram.

I'm surprised she didn’t tell him she was going to wash his mouth out with soap.  My grandmother still to this day tells me to “Stay out of those streets after dark."

POTD 1/14/13: Taj Gibson on Anthony Tolliver

There’s a laundry list of things I like about the dunk that Kevin Durant sent home over the top of Marcin Gortat last night.  First of all, I like that Gortat is seven feet tall, 240 pounds.  That’s a big damn Pole to be smashing on with such authority.  In addition, I like that Durant took off from the dotted line, that he drew enough body contact to warrant a whistle, and...

Is Miguel Cabrera this generation’s Hank Aaron?

On June 20, 2003, Miguel Cabrera struck out in his first big league at bat.  He’d get the last laugh however. In the bottom of the eleventh inning the 20-year-old rookie hit a two-run home run to help his then-Florida Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the then-Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Now, I bring that up only to awkwardly segue into this. Friday, the reigning American League MVP turned...
