Graduate of the University of Kentucky. Cleveland sports fan. Frustrated respecter of LeBron James. Influencer of bad ideas.
I get the privilege of writing about sports and entertainment each day for various publications—how dope is that? In addition to Bleacher Report, I'm a regular contributor to Esquire, Maxim and Uncoached.com.
The day a Cleveland sports team wins a title is the day I can officially say my life is complete.
How can you leave out Tom Glavine for athletes who almost played another sport? 69th overall pick in the 1984 NHL draft.
Your knowledge of soccer is terrible. Did you just look up "leading goal scorers", and automatically put them into your "Athletes so good..." list? Pathetic. Perhaps one day you should actually watch a soccer game. It'll make you a better writer.
For saying Bryce Harper is underrated, YOU SHOULD BE BANNED FROM B/R!!!
How could you say Bryce Harper is underrated. He's by far the most overrated player coming into the 2014 campaign. Most would agree that there was so much hype around him and he can't live up to it. To many injuries...
Hey Nick, in your resent article about athletes that hate their former teams I think Kenny Easley should have made the cut. He absolutely hated the Seahawks for decades after being on of the best players in franchise history. http://www.seattlepi.com/news/article/Seahawks-NFL-Beat-Easley-unloads-after-15-year-1098516.php
You've failed to put the Ron Artest/Trevor Ariza shoe fail as the number one shoe fail. I hope you are familiar with this fail, as it easily could have been number 1. I demand a recount.
@scott: you're right, chael does run his mouth A TON, but he hasn't had the success some of the other athletes have had, so i left him out. fair or not, that's kind of how i ranked them. thanks for reading/enjoy, bro.
Nick, you have to include Chael P. Sonnen in your "Biggest Trash Talkers..." article. Youtube him. You will soon realize the error. I provided links in my comments to the article. Thanks for writing it.
@Ron: thanks for the info. wish i had known before i put my piece together.
Nick, regarding your article on technologies that are changing the Olympics just want to let you know that most federations in both the Winter and Summer Olympics from many countries use Dartfish for video analysis solutions. Dartfish has apps, software, cloud sharing platforms, consulting and training all over the world. The US Ski Team, Swiss Bobsled, Norway Bobsled, most of the Korean and Dutch winter teams among many others use them. In salt Lake, Torino, Vancouver and now Sochi they were and are being used extensively.
