Doug Collins nails Birdman rap reference

Doug Collins might be a graying (actually, just plain gray now), 62-year-old white guy, but that doesn’t mean he’s not hip to what all the kids are listening to these days. Err…the kids circa 2002, when Dougie was coaching Michael Jordan and the Washington Wizards, and rappers Birdman (who went by the name Baby back then) and The Clipse released “What Happened To That Boy”...

Doug Collins Express: Hard for some TV analysts to resist urge to get back on sidelines

My latest column for the National Sports Journalism Center at Indiana is on analysts who make the jump to coaching and newly fired coaches who find landing spots as TV analysts. ************ There is a little-known shuttle that exists in sports. We’ll call it the Doug Collins Express. The Collins Express is set up for TV analysts who jump to the other side to become coaches and...

Doug Collins has new big time hoops gig at ESPN

The Public has spoken, and ESPN has responded.  Although I’m not sure the viewers are going to approve of the move they made. Fans complained for most of the NBA regular season about the chemistry of the ESPN’s Countdown crew.  The foursome of Michael Wilbon, Magic Johnson, Jalen Rose, and Bill Simmon consistently got gripes from social media about awkward chemistry the crew...

Doug Collins Assistant Moves To Northwestern; Colly To Resign When Season Ends

Chris Collins has made another hire at Northwestern, taking on current Sixers assistant Brian James.

Doug Collins’ rant is a sign that his tenure in Philly is coming to an end

It is year three of the Doug Collins era with the Philadelphia 76ers. That usually spells doom for Collins. The overbearing head coach has never lasted more than three seasons anywhere he has coached. In fact, Collins hasn’t coached three full seasons since leading to the Bulls to a Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Pistons in 1988. Granted, the 76ers have had to deal with...

Doug Collins owes Big Macs to over 18,000 76ers fans

Doug Collins was in a tough spot on Friday night, and he ended up committing to providing Big Macs for over 18,000 76ers fans as a result.

Doug Collins Refers To Nick Young As “Swaggy”

Doug Collins and Nick Young have two of the most prevailing reputations in all of basketball.  Collins has long been known as an oldschool, no-nonsense type of guy who takes a very serious, highly disciplined approach to his job.  He’s regarded by players as a hard ass; the Red Foreman of coaching, if you will. Nick Young, on the other hand, will forever be remembered as a detrimental...
