Pro wrestling is fake. It is as fake as Game of Thrones and The Godfather and Les Misérables and every other form of non-reality entertainment.
Every pro wrestling fan over the age of 10 understands this, and still you can’t bring up wrestling in mixed company without somebody asking, “You know it’s fake, right?” like they’re doing you a favor. Read More »
Jimmy Kimmel is always hit and miss for me. But this segment of “Mean Tweets” is great. Basically, Kimmel has a bunch of NBA players (as well as Bob Costas, Greg Anthony and Bill Simmons) read mean tweets about themselves.

The NBA Draft is incredibly interesting to compare, especially when you look at the whole picture and each individual that was taken. The pieces shuffle dramatically when mixing and matching the “What if?” possibilities. Fans swear their franchises, and thank their lucky stars for management. They wish that their favorite college star fell one more pick and they are discouraged when they pass up a “guaranteed” star.

With less than eight teams remaining in the NBA Playoffs, it means a few “contenders” have already been eliminated from title contention. The offseason is the time for these teams to retool to prepare for deeper runs next season. The Los Angeles Clippers were one of the better teams in the Western Conference all year. Read More »
The point guard position in the NBA has quickly become one of the most competitive spots in all of sports. There are so many good lead guards in the NBA that it’s impossible for any player at the position to take a night off.
The position has seen a major increase in talent over the past decade. It’s an ongoing trend. Ever since Chris Paul won the Rookie of the Year award in ’05-06 that teams have realized how valuable lead guards — true lead guards — really are. Read More »
