Below, because I know you’re curious, are the five worst places to be elbowed during a basketball game (in reverse order):
Kylia Carter, mother of former Duke basketball star Wendell Carter Jr., didn’t mince words during an emotional speech to the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, in which she compared the current NCAA basketball system to slavery and prison.
“Don’t be a prisoner of the moment!” said the person on the internet, who is 36 years old, about the reaction to LeBron James’ theatrics against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday. And against the Raptors the game before that. And against the Raptors the game before that. And against the Indiana Pacers the series before…
A white reporter who covers the Golden State Warriors was caught on tape stealing a security staffer’s jacket. It isn’t debatable; it happened. Several news outlets have seen the tape and confirmed that Mike Shumann, a sports anchor for KGO-TV in San Francisco, picked up the jacket, which didn’t belong to him, and…
So far it seems that Meek Mill is enjoying his newfound freedom. Just two hours after being officially released from prison as he appeals decade-old gun and drug convictions, the rapper attended Game 5 of the 76ers playoff series against the Miami Heat with his son.
Candace Parker is a legit WNBA star with endorsement deals and a name that rings outside of WNBA circles. Her ex-husband, Shelden Williams, was an NBA bust who basically rode the bench of several NBA teams for six years before the basketball gods realized that the NBA was no place for Shelden Williams.
Here are the facts.
LeBron James is a freak of nature. Sure, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s (I’m not ashamed to admit I had to look up how to spell his name, gave up trying to get it right, and copied and pasted it) nickname is the Freak, but LeBron James? Bruh.
The Dallas Mavericks have launched an independent investigation after a report by Sports Illustrated on Tuesday alleged that the NBA franchise maintained a “corrosive workplace culture” where women were routinely sexually harassed by male co-workers.
I cannot figure out if LaVar Ball, the enigmatic father of three basketball prodigies, is a genius using common man’s-speak or, really just a common man speaking nonsense.
I began writing this at 1:15 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
I’m going to need special counsel Robert Mueller to stand down on the Russia investigation and take a look at LeBron “King” James’ reported willingness to have a sit-down with the Golden State Warriors.
Football is still America’s most popular sport. And the NFL our biggest and most popular sports league. But while the NFL’s status as the king of America’s sports hill remains, I don’t remember its position ever being as precarious. To wit, each of the biggest NFL-related stories of the year has been extremely…
Those who follow the NBA know that you’d be wise to take any Adrian Wojnarowski reportage on anything LeBron-related with a grain of salt. For reasons that remain unclear, Wojnarowski doesn’t miss opportunities to craft stories about LeBron James in ways that are less than flattering.
The Cleveland Cavaliers-vs.-Golden State Warriors basketball game on Martin Luther King Jr. Day was aight (spoiler alert: Warriors won ... again), but the real show was 5-year-old Tavaris Jones’ dancing during halftime. The young Detroit native kept the crowd entertained when LeBron James wasn’t busy
It didn’t take much convincing for me to agree with my dad’s plan—that it was in my best interest to leave Sterrett Classical Academy in the city and transfer to St. Bartholomew (a private Catholic school in the suburbs with a stellar academic and athletic reputation) and repeat the sixth grade when making the switch.
Decades before LeBron James and Dwyane Wade straddled a floating banana to become this generation’s poster children for BFFs, Magic Johnson and Isiah Thomas donned their Daisy Dukes to kiss at half-court before each of their iconic NBA duels. Not only were the two men considered the best point guards of their era…
After 15 storied years in the NBA that included multiple trades between teams and an infamous altercation with a former teammate over Gloria Govan, Matt Barnes has announced that he will retire from the sport of basketball to focus on business and spend more time with his children.
No words for this so we’ll just present the facts as we know
them. And honestly they seem a little sketchy to this reporter.
This whole thing is becoming intensely messy. Former NBA superstar Ray Allen claimed that he’d been catfished by a man pretending to be several women.
