We Need to Realize What’s “Broken” in College Basketball Before We “Fix It”

We are all weak and imperfect beings. Regarding the biannual what’s wrong with college basketball columns: I swore there would be no caving on my end, and that I would not write any more than absolutely necessary, but it looks as though a trip to church to confess some sins might be in order. Here we are, again, debating the merits of shortening the 35-second shot clock to 30....

John Wall's introduction to the NBA was bwo this ridiculous Dougie dance, at the bequest of assistant coach Sam Cassell, back in November of 2010.Colin Cowherd called him out on it.

Lone Wolf. Why I hate KG's return to Minnesota

I've always considered Kevin Garnett's career to be bordering tragic. He's the greatest team player I've ever seen play the game, and dare I say probably the best I'll ever see. Gifted with incredible length and athleticism and fueled by fire (and I've always assumed the sounds of DMX looping internally) Garnett was everything you could ask for. A game changing defensive force, seemingly...

Bulls Look-alikes are the Best Look-alikes

During last night’s Cavs- Bulls game, the SM crew came to a startling conclusion that the Bulls may have the most “unique” looking team in the NBA. No team in the NBA has as many players that you can say, “you know [fill in the blank] really does look like [fill in the blank]” as the Bulls. No qualitative research was officially done to confirm this bold statement, but...
