Despite finishing six games under five hundred, the Milwaukee Bucks earned the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.  Mired in mediocrity, the Bucks already hired Larry Drew as their new head coach and there could be a changing of the guard this off-season as well since both Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis will likely test the free agent waters.

Erik Spoelstra’s chess match for game 5

Miami Heat leader Erik Spoelstra is as divisive as the team he coaches. Some believe he doesn’t have to do much coaching at all, given all the talent around him.

Spurs Danny Green becoming America’s man-crush

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. The San Antonio Spurs are not the most interesting or exciting NBA team around (and Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich likes it that way).  They’re not polarizing like the Miami Heat. People tune in to see them fall. And one of the keys to making the Heat fall is Spurs forward Danny Green. Danny Green has been a hero for the Spurs this NBA Finals, and...

After striking out last off-season, Dallas Mavericks hope to land superstar

A year ago, the Dallas Mavericks failed to land a marquee free agent and rather than making any rash, outrageous mistakes in free agency, chose to play it smart in hopes of not threatening their cap space for this off-season.  With plenty of cap space, Mark Cuban and the Mavs are likely to make a run at some of the big names free agents available including Dwight Howard and Chris...

Bull Durham is not only the greatest baseball movie of all time, it’s the greatest sports movie. It is so well written that you’d think it was based on a novel. However, the witty and uber-quotable prose of Bull Durham is just the product of the insights and life experience of Writer/Director Ron Shelton. And Bull Durham has influenced me more than any baseball related artistic...

They signed an all pro, another guy who’s decent, jettisoned the 1st round pick bust and spent their 1st round on the position this year. He’s had Brandon Marshall, a legit #1 target, back with again for...
