Return To La La Land

I got a real life quality glimpse of LeBron in a Lakers uniform today. He looks good. Really good. I was skeptical when I initially heard he signed with my team – well, you know, not my team, but the team I’ve loved my entire life as a sports fan. […]

Chasing The Ghost

The debate about who is greater, Michael or LeBron is kinda pointless. The easiest way to settle any conversation that winds into that topic is just to simply say, “Hey, they’re both great in their own way.” and then flip the conversation to some other topic. And that is a […]

NBA FINALS: a preview

It seems like the Conference Finals are still happening. Like, maybe when I get home tonight and turn on my TV it will be game seven of the Western Conference Finals. Maybe Chris Paul isn’t hurt with a hamstring. Maybe I didn’t watch the Rockets miss 27 threes in a […]

WCF Game Four: The Shifting of Power

Houston made a huge statement in game four. On the road; down 12-0 to start the game. It was a game of momentum swings, and when the final buzzer sounded the Rockets were in control of the pendulum. James Harden gave a Jekyll and Hyde performance. He had a stellar […]

How Curry Got his Groove Back: Warriors Win Western Conference Finals

  I’ve always lived under the philosophy that MVP’s are MVP’s for a reason. They figure out what needs to be done to take over games and most importantly, win. Steph Curry was a loathsome 2-13 from the three point line coming into game three. But he’s a pro and […]

GS Warriors: The Infinity Gauntlet (or) The Hampton’s Five

I recently went to my local cinema to see AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. It was a fun movie. I liked it. It doesn’t change the focal point of reality in cinema as we know it, and if anyone argues it’s bad for life that Marvel keeps making movies like this – […]

2018 NBA Season – The Second Half

Are the Warriors going to turn it on and finish the season in first place in the west? Or will Houston continue to play lights out and smoke everyone on their way to a possibly Finals appearance? How good are the new Cavs after the astonishing trades they pulled off? […]

G.O.A.T. Put The Debate To Rest

When I was twelve years old my uncle or somebody gave me a gold necklace. It may have been real gold or not, I’m not sure, and I don’t remember what happened to it. In fact, I have only one series of memories at all about that thin little chain: […]

Lavar Ball Should Never Stop Talking

The father is not making this easy. Or so it seems. Beyond the bluster of Lavar Ball there is a man, a father, a husband. He is loud. He can seem crass. He can seem even sexist, a misogynist with a shiny bald head. But ask yourself something: Is that […]
