Shane Battier’s painfully awkward ESPN career is over for now

After a very brief spell with ESPN, The Big Lead...

At least one prominent college basketball analyst picked West Virginia to beat Kentucky

Oh, Shane Battier.  We’ve examined previously how the former Duke star and first year analyst is a tad awkward in the broadcast booth.  His prognostication skills aren’t that much better.  Earlier this week, Battier went on CBS Sports’ Boomer & Carton and picked West Virginia to beat Kentucky.  While that might have sounded a little crazy when Battier first did it...

Shane Battier approached to run for Michigan Senate

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images As Shane Battier’s thirteenth NBA season nears its end, Shane Battier is starting to think about life after basketball.  The smooth-talking Duke graduate, who was named the school’s outstanding student in his senior year with a 3.96 GPA, would seemingly make a pretty good politician.  And I’ll be darned if the Michigan Democratic Party didn’t...

Heat's Shane Battier relishing return to starting lineup against Nets

MIAMI -- Shane Battier remained confident he'd get another chance to help the Miami Heat despite a reduced role in recent weeks. The Duke grad was less certain he would produce when asked.
