Steve Nash: Superstar or Not a Superstar, That is the Question?

In 1993, I remember a blonde-haired kid playing point guard for the University of Santa Clara. He helped lead Santa Clara to score one of the biggest upsets in NCAA Tournament history as they beat second-seeded Arizona.

Binge Scoring: Kaminsky's Record Boosts UW

NBA Finals: Tim Duncan starts slow, finishes big in Game 1 win

Earlier in his career, when head coach Gregg Popovich opted to bring Manu Ginobili off the bench in favor of less talented players like Brent Barry and Michael Finley the saying went "It doesn't matter who starts the game, but who finishes it."  In honor of Tim Duncan's Game 1 of the the 2013 Finals I'd like to amend that saying to "It doesn't matter...
