Amico Report: For Cavs, Blatt is where it's at

Why not? That's my feeling about the Cleveland Cavaliers' hiring of David Blatt as coach. Why not? The man has won overseas -- a lot. He is clearly well-respected by his players, both near and far.

The Win Tax: Political Stunt or Decent Idea?

It’s either a brilliant, long-overdue idea, or a politician grandstanding as he seeks higher office. Or possibly a little of both.
