Heat and Lakers are clearly America’s teams

If you go almost anywhere these days, you are going to find Lakers and Heat fans. The Lakers have long had a national fan base and, by virtue of being the best team, the Heat attract people who enjoy success without the difficulties of trouble — ask yourself if you remember Harold Miner, Heat fans. A new map and study created by The New York Times shows exactly how pervasive Heat...

Random Athlete Of The Day- Harold Miner

Harold Miner is known as one of the best dunkers of the 1990’s; his reputation even earned him the nickname “Baby Jordan.” Miner’s story starts in Inglewood, California where he attended Inglewood High School before becoming an immediate star at the University of Southern California.

Patience & Perspective Needed: Any Takers?

Shumpert has a first name, but nobody will know who he is anyway…...

On Cavs / Heat, and not wanting to care that he wants to come back

I spent all of last season specifically focused on detailing the progress of the NBA's worst team ever. At times it became mundane, but we eventually invented enough things to keep the comments we posted here specifically centered on the Cleveland Cavaliers. We invented a nickname for a rookie shooting guard, and a series highlighting a long list of Cavaliers legends like Harold...
