NBA Roundup: Show Us Some Love, Rondo MVP?

The Rockets, Heat, Clippers, and Knicks are not living up to the preseason hype. Meanwhile, Minnesota's Kevin Love had a 30 point 30 rebound night against the Knickerbockers while Boston's Rajon Rondo shows why he should be an all-star and quite possibly MVP of the league.

The NBA’s Big Mistake – “The Answer” Is In Turkey

In a summer that saw the NBA spend wildly on low level free agents, one name remained unsigned. Not even offered a contract, one of the greatest players in recent history has decided to take his talents to...Turkey.

Dallas vs San Francisco: Which City Is Better?

The Texas Rangers are on the brink of elimination as they head into Game 5 of the 2010 World Series tonight. While watching the games up to this point, there are certain characteristics and idiosyncrasies we picked up from each team's respective hometown. If you're not a Rangers or Giants fan, who do you route for? More importantly, if you had the choice to be in the winner's city after clinching their World Series Championship, which would you choose? Dallas or San Fran? COED gives you the lowdown on which city is better.

5 Players That Could Save Your Fantasy NBA Season

With the NBA season getting set to tip off there are guys around the nation (okay, maybe some girls too) that are bragging about the fantasy team they just drafted. However, secretly they are just like the rest of their league; insecure, nervous, and scared. If you would rather spend your time drinking and making fun of your buddy’s team just read on (we did the research for you).

Step Aside Michael Jordan, These Icons Deserve a Video Game

2K Studios released NBA 2K11 with Michael "Air" Jordan gracing the cover last Tuesday. In honor of His Airness' return to the (virtual) court, it's only fitting to daydream about other icons--fictional and real--I'd like to see be "like Mike" and make a return to popular culture via video games. After all, legends never die. Note: Bagger Vance not included.

8 Best American Sports Teams in History

Every now and then a team comes along with the intuition to annihilate every possible opponent and show just how much better they are than everyone else. I'm not talking your old fashioned 13 win NFL season which is then followed up by some competitive post season games and then hopefully a championship. No, what we got here are team's that just straight up said screw it and decided to kill your team, my team, and everyone else's team.

Surefire Tips to Win Your Fantasy Football League

The dog days of summer have always been a downtime for sports fans. With LeBron's "Decision" finally past us, ESPN can now focus on Brett Favre's "Decision" (take 5), but since it is now August, only one thing matters: Fantasy Football and your draft day decisions! I have gone undefeated over the last six fantasy leagues I've been a part of, including football, baseball and basketball, and want to share some helpful tips I use during each draft to the COED Community.

Baseball’s Greatest and Most Bizarro Batting Stances

If you've ever watched a baseball game on TV or visited 30 stadiums in 30 days, chances are you've seen him. The batter with the bizarro batting stance, where it looks like he's trying to get back to the locker room to drop a deuce. Perhaps he's wanting to coerce the pitcher into a brawl or is so anxious for his next "hit" that he can't stand still.

Top 10 Worst Sports Signings of the Last Decade

It seemed like every off season in every sport brought us deals that left everyone scratching their heads at first and shaking their heads afterwards. From the Magic paying Grant Hill nearly $500,000 per game played over his seven-year contract, to the Giants paying Barry Zito $1.75 million per win, this decade brought us these terrible signings from the world of sports:

10 Halfcourt Shots That Shouldn’t Look So Damn Easy

Being a pretty big sports fan I've seen my fair share of amazing moments. From Hail-a-Marys to Hat Tricks it seems like one of the most universal "Holy $%^#" moments come on the hardwood in the form of the half court shot. Now the half court shot isn't amazing because of the athleticism that it takes to perform one, but really because of the sheer luck it usually takes to make a bucket of this magnitude.

10 Things Lebron James Should Do Next Season Other Than Play Basketball

Will he leave? Will he stay? The courtship of Lebron James is in full throttle and sports fans across the nation are eagerly anticipating a hint as to where King James might be building his next castle. But the real question is, why the hell should he keep playing anywhere? Sure he doesn't have any championships, but LBJ does have ooddles of money -- so why not give something else a go?

Ranking (and Predicting) the 2010 NBA Free Agent Class

Over the past two years, the talk around the NBA has centered around where LeBron James will play in 2010. Finally, that time is near. After July 1, LeBron, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and many other top superstars can be changing zip codes. Although some players such as Dirk Nowitzki, Amare Stoudemire and Paul Pierce have Early Termination Options (ETO) and are likely to remain with their respective teams, I'm including them in this list in case they do opt out, which will only add to the biggest free agent class in the history of sports.

Will NCAA Pay Athletes?

The NCAA exploits amateur athletes to no end by raking in millions while amateurs aren't even allowed to get gifts. The worst part is, the guys that do not go on to the pros never get a penny after they lose their amateur status either. Former UCLA basketball great Ed O'Bannon seeks to change just that as he has filed suit against the NCAA, claiming that they owe him royalties for using his likeness and name in DVDs, video games, and jerseys.

The fact that this is the second time a Bulls/Thomas buyout has come directly after the Knicks plopped him into their laps...

Who Wears the Pants In The Turkoglu Household?

Or so they thought. Over the next 48 hours, Turkoglu backed out of his verbal commitment to Portland and instead agreed upon a five-year, $53M deal with the more Euro-friendly Toronto Raptors organization. But why this sudden change of heart?

But why is nobody bringing up perhaps the best possible head-to-head battle imaginable?
