Hits & Botches: Raw 06/06

Hits John Cena and AJ Styles I loved the back and forth between Styles and Cena. It was both well written and well delivered, and AJ has slipped into his heel persona like a glove. There were some edgy lines in there, particularly Styles saying that John Cena buries guys like him. I’m a bit The post Hits & Botches: Raw 06/06 appeared first on No Coast Bias.

No Brock Lesnar, You’re Not A Modern Day Bo Jackson

Bo Jackson was the definition of a freak athlete. You open up a Webster’s Dictionary and I guarantee his picture appears under “freak athlete.” The man could do it all. At Auburn University he was a standout on both the football field and the baseball diamond. He won the 1985 Heisman Trophy after rushing for 1,786 The post No Brock Lesnar, You’re Not A Modern Day Bo Jackson...

(This Version of) Cleveland’s Last Stand

After a 33-point defeat (yes I swear that’s the right number) in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers are returning home with their tail between their legs. The dominance in the first three rounds, the success of their new lineups, the three-point shooting barrages, they all seem years ago.

‘Game of Thrones’ Episode 607 Recap: “The Broken Man”

Jetpacks! Jetpacks here! Get your jetpacks while they’re hot! All right, fine. Maybe I’m giving this show too hard a time for getting its characters where they need to be in a timely fashion.

Could Brock Lesnar be Headed Back to the UFC?

UFC fans might remember a former NCAA wrestler by the name of Brock Lesnar, he was sort of a big deal for the company. Lesnar bowed out of the UFC once due to health concerns, then flirted with a return before signing a three year deal with the WWE. Well don’t call it a comeback, The post Could Brock Lesnar be Headed Back to the UFC? appeared first on No Coast Bias.

The Man is Gone

In the last decade or two, Muhammad Ali was remembered simply as a boxer. But he was substantially more than that limited memory leads us to believe. He was a fighter, both in and out of the ring, an agitator, a racial and religious icon, and the voice of an era that only partially wanted The post The Man is Gone appeared first on No Coast Bias.

LeBron James’ Six Straight Eastern Conference Finals Victories, Ranked and Reminisced

LeBron James is now going to his sixth straight NBA Finals, which is impressive. But to get to each of those, he had to win six straight Eastern Conference Finals series. And those have tended to be weird and interesting and great. So why not rank them?

Hits & Botches: Raw 05/30

Up against stiff sports competition this week, WWE barely even tried to make Raw a compelling show. Aside from a great angle with John Cena’s return, everything on this show bordered between uneventful and just outright bad. With a new brand extension on the horizon, you would hope for some kind of news, but there was The post Hits & Botches: Raw 05/30 appeared first on No Coast Bias.

The Western Conference Finals and the Beauty in Bad Sports Takes

Sports twitter is fascinating. You can try to filter what you see all you want, but inevitably you’re to get bombarded on all sides by the masses with opinions.

What Would the Exercise Classes Look Like at Ricky Williams’ Weed Gym?

A few days ago word started to leak slowly, almost lethargically, that former NFL running back and current enormous stoner, Ricky Williams, might be starting a new business venture: a marijuana themed workout facility.

The Warriors are a Predictable Snoozefest

I enjoy the three-point shot. I don’t enjoy waiting in line at the DMV, nor do I enjoy drinking the medically recommended 34 eight-oz. glasses of water per day. I also don’t enjoy watching the Warriors take (and repeatedly nail) my beloved three-point shot.

Steph Curry has a lot going on right now.

Hits & Botches: WWE Extreme Rules 2016

Extreme Rules looked great on paper, but unfortunately a lot of the matches just didn’t quite deliver.

The Bachelorette starts tonight. This is a big deal. Why, you ask?

Mount Flopmore: LeBron James’ 4 Best Flops

The Two Embarrassing Versions of LeBron

LeBron James is an incredible basketball player and physical talent. There’s no disputing this. If you try, you can only come across as ignorant and just plain stupid.

Why I Enjoy the NBA Draft Lottery

Technically, the NBA Draft Lottery shouldn’t be that interesting. It’s just to determine the draft order, which in other sports leagues means nothing. But due to the abundance of draft picks that get traded in the league, and the outrageous percentage of which end up being misguided and/or horrible, drama naturally ensues.

The two best players in the NBA are at each other’s throats again, and it is VICIOUS.
