All of which means it was a good Monday in San Diego for the Aztecs, and an even better start of the week for one of their stars, Tim Shelton. Read More »

Lil' Wayne

Without the NBA in our lives, we fans might have time for the things we’ve been putting off for too long. Maybe we’ll have time to finish that historical biography that sits next to the bed getting dusty. Maybe we’ll get more exercise. Maybe we’ll start following hockey?

New Mixtape: Lil Wayne – Sorry 4 The Wait

Lil Wayne - Sorry 4 The Wait

Before you start asking for a review, stop. It’s only been out for less than four days, and I can’t ever bring myself to start calling something decent or horrendous for at least a few weeks (It’s like my opinion on Superbad. When I first saw it, it was underwhelming and slightly boring. Now that the hype died down, I can at least watch and chuckle at the cops). Read More »

J.R. Smith’s Ink: “I Got A Hell Of A Story Going On”

J.R. Smith

With the Denver Nuggets heading into Game 2 this evening in OKC – and looking to exact revenge from the Thunder’s 107-103 game one victory – they’re going to need positive minutes from the bench to be successful. Which is why the play of guard J.R. Smith is even that much more needed. In Game 1, Smith logged a modest 17 minutes of action – down from his 25-a-game regular season average – scoring nine points in that time. Read More »
