(That’s a “white coat” term for ASAP) I just can’t take this anymore. Sure, record wise the Bulls have... Read more »

Things LeBron James does that Derrick Rose would never do

 Well, he clearly wouldn’t dance at All-Star Games… Or on the bench during a game… Or during pre-game warm-ups Or do whatever the hell this is… He wouldn’t wear sunglasses indoors.. Or these glasses anywhere… Or this shirt… Or this one (“ROSE MVP”?-I don’t think so)….while wearing sunglasses indoors Or this scarf… He wouldn’t do... Read more »

Hey LeBron- at 40, this is what Michael Jordan did with the All-Star game on the line (VIDEO)

(turn to 36 seconds for MJ’s Shot) At last night’s NBA All-Star Game in Orlando, LeBron James had the type of jaw-dropping yet asterisk needing performance for which his career has become known.

A Letter to LeBron James
Let me first apologize for this being a little late; see my miserable, monotonous  life demands I work for nine hours a day, you know, the type of life that forces one to regularly seek refuge in  diversionary outlets-say sports for example.

Hey Scottie-Did Michael Ever Play Like This?

  Hey Scottie-Just wondering how many times in the NBA Finals Michael had a game like this? Eight points in 45 remarkably unproductive minutes. The King had zero points in the 4th quarter-missing the lone shot he took.During the past three games of the series, James has scored four points on 1-for-7 shooting in the fourth quarter. By...
