Kevin Love trade made official

The worst-kept secret in the NBA has now been made official as Kevin Love will be joining Lebron James and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland to form a new big-three. The Cavs had to part with uber-prospect Andrew Wiggins, so the price was steep. Still, the Cavs now have to be the favorites to come out of the East to the NBA Finals. And while many currently think a team coming out of the...

Selected ninth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, he was named Defensive Rookie of the Year that season and NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2013. What can he do for an encore in year three?

But we’ve learned that the devil is in the details when it comes to NFL contracts, and this breakdown from ProFootballTalk explains how this contract really sets the bar for second-tier quarterbacks.

The Ray Rice mess

It’s hard to find a dissenting opinion about this, unless of course you’re a Ravens fans. Despite his apology and trying to do things right since the incident, there’s little Ray Rice can do to erase the image of him dragging his unconscious girlfriend out of that elevator. And that’s a problem for Roger Goodell, who made one of the most criticized decisions in recent memory...

Redemption for Lebron James

Lebron James did the right thing – he’s coming home. I say “coming home” because I’m writing this from the Cleveland area and was pleasantly surprised to see Lebron right the wrong of “The Decision” in such a classy way with “The Letter.” Everyone can appreciate the sentiment of wanting to come home, but the folks in Northeast Ohio really needed to hear this from...

Fans celebrate Team USA victory

The scenes in this video from Hermosa Beach are pretty amazing and were replicated in other parts of the country like Grant Park in Chicago.

Epic rant from owner of California Chrome

Like many, I got to see this epic rant live, and it’s amazing what people say when they’re pissed off. Never mind that this has been going on for years, as some horses show up in the Belmont Stakes to thwart a Triple Crown. That’s why it’s so damn hard. The debates on Twitter were priceless and also informative, as those who understood horse racing explained why Steve Coburn’s...

The Stakes

The stakes are huge tonight for both teams as the NBA Finals kicks off in San Antonio. For the Heat, they’ve cruised to their fourth straight Finals after toying with the pathetic Eastern Conference. If they get the three-peat, then we’ll have to start listening to pundits discuss where this team ranks among the all-time greats. The same goes for Lebron. But the flip-side for...

Hate-Watching the Pacers

Jason Whitlock can be full of himself at times, but he’s still one of the best sportswriters out there. This recent column about the pain he experiences in watching his beloved Pacers is biting and hilarious. Of course he’s not the only one mocking Roy Hibbert and the emotionally fragile Pacers, but Whitlock does it more eloquently.

Heat flop their way to victory

Yes, the Heat have been dominating the pathetic Pacers since the second half of game 2. So don’t get all excited over the headline here. But the flopping by Dwyane Wade we see in this photo is so lame it needs to be pointed out. Lebron James had how own flop during the game as well. These should be technical fouls. Period. Perhaps we just need another official who has all the TV...

Who will contend for College Football Playoff?

The BCS is dead. Finally! We’ve been complaining about it for years, and now we finally have a playoff system, so all of the debate around who is the best team in college football can at least be expanded to the four best teams who should play in the playoff. All of the debate on ESPN and other outlets will still be annoying, but at least the end result is somewhat more rational...
