Apparently, the game has done exactly that:The 03-04 Wolves won 58 games, most in the West, and ran through the Nuggets and Kings only to fall to the Lakers in six games during the...

Pierce on choosing LA: “it was more Sam Cassell than anybody”

Gotta love the Truth. Listen to his response when a member of the Clippers’ media asks him if Doc was the main reason he chose to play in LA. Pierce also says “this is probably the last ride of my career. I think this is where I’m going to end it.” He also uses the word “championship” at least three times. It’s pretty clear he’d love to win another ring before he...

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.

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

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.
