Missing rivalries, Stipe Miocic, Game of Thrones and STP… While We’re Waiting

Hope everyone had a great week! Let’s talk about some sports and stuff. ***** Sweeping the Red Sox was glorious for this former Boston resident… I was only there for just over four years, but having lived in “Red Sox Nation”1 I was elated for a Tribe sweep of the Red Sox at home. It gave me some feelings that I haven’t had in a while, most notably that of rivalry. Sure...

Pacers vs. Heat Game 4 preview

MIAMI -- In the 2011 NBA Finals, LeBron James spent too much time for his liking talking about his purported rivalry with an easily excitable guard named Stevenson. There's a new rival now. His name sounds the same. Different spelling, though. Back then, it was Dallas' DeShawn Stevenson. In these Eastern Conference finals, it's Indiana's Lance Stephenson in the foil...

Drops of tea from Basketball Wives LA: Draya’s old beef and Sundy Carter’s Boo

Basketball Wives LA is back for a third season and episode one jumped out as a hot mess. I’m sure this is in response to the “Love & Hip-Hop” franchise taking over BBW’s spot for rachety goodness. Gone are the Govan sisters, replaced by Sundy Carter – she has a baby by former NBA player Larry Hughes. There’s scandal with that, I shared with you a few months ago ...

DeShawn Stevenson Was Supposed To Be The Next Michael Jordan

DeShawn Stevenson is currently a member of the NBA free agency pool. He was cut by the Hawks this preseason because at this point of his career, he’s a bum. But that wasn’t always the case.
