  12. Scoop Jackson Thinks Michael Jordan Should Go to Hall of Fame Alone

    I won't lie; I'm not a Scoop Jackson fan. I don't read his stuff very often, because I don't agree with most of what he has to say. Comparing Len Bias to Jesus is just one of the stupid things he has put in print...

  14. What's So Wrong with No March Madness Upsets?

    I'm an NBA fan, much more than a college hoops fan. College just seems to have too many team to follow, and if you're following a team that isn't your alma mater, you risk investing a season in a team that won't make the field of 65...

  19. Dallas Mavericks Aren't Dead Yet

    Let me set the scene: Dirk is putting on a fourth-quarter show like we hadn't seen in a long time. With the Mavs clinging to a three-point lead, 91-88, and five-and-a-half minutes left, Dirk did his best to put the game away...
