Round One of The LeBron Hate Parade 2010 is in the books as he and his buddies shattered the Cavs in a demoralizing 118-90 victory that was nowhere near as close as the score indicates. The Heat are finally clicking and have won five straight heading into a west coast trip with stops in Utah, Golden State, and Sacramento. The smart money would suggest that the wins will keep piling up. See more reaction and analysis after the jump!
Shaquille O'Neal is a legend and will forever be a part of not just NBA history but sports lore. He donned the Superman 'S' way before Dwight Howard and he spits out memorable quote after memorable quote in the locker room, at press conferences, and on Twitter. The big man's in the twilight of his career, but still manages to be productive for the Celtics when he doesn't forget his meds. He's gone head to head with the likes of Ewing, Olajuwon, Robinson, but can you imagine playing against him in HIGH SCHOOL?! How bad do you think that dude sh*t his pants? Here are some of his highlights from high school.
As the NBA season hits December, a lot of highly anticipated storylines are beginning to play out. Simply put, nothing is bigger than LeBron's first trip back to the city that he shat on when tonight's theater of vengeance unfolds on TNT. LeBron brings his underwhelming 11-8 Miami Heat to his former kingdom where Cavs owner Dan Gilbert will finally get to see his rabid fan base pounce on the One that turned his back on his hometown.
Drew Brees was recently awarded Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated. Brees not only won a Super Bowl against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts last February, but has made significant contributions off the field as well. Of course you tend to not hear about it since our sports news off the field typically focurs on DUIs or domestic abuse, a player’s displeasure with their current team, or better yet, where they are taking their “talents.” Brees is a breath of fresh air and we 100% fully endorse SI's selection. To ensure we have MORE of him and LESS of the other jackasses, we're doling out "awards" for the Worst Sportsmen of the Year.
The Air Jordan sneaker line has always been symbols of the era, style, and fashion. These sneakers have people lining up, and dropping serious cash to get a pair. And we know why. Made by the best designers, with the coolest ideas in mind, these shoes really out-do every other shoe on the market. Here is a history of what Air Jordan has become since its release in 1985.
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 Duke Blue Devils are the odds on favorite to repeat as NCAA champions. Coach Mike Krzyzewski finally found a formula to reach the top...
The second week of NBA action is in the books and a few surprises have already left a mark on this young season. The Lakers have jumped out to a ho hum 8-0 start and the shocking Hornets are becoming the talk of the town in New Orleans as they have played brilliant 7-0 ball thus far. Check out the rest of this week's NBA roundup.
After an exciting first week of action in the 2010-11 season that centered around the new look Miami Heat, the addition of Shaq in Beantown, and Amare Stoudemire's name littered across the Madison Square Garden marquee, we are starting to get back into the flow of a new season of NBA basketball
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.
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.
Fantasy football team got you down? It's not too late to dominate a fantasy league - it just won't be football. How about you draft a winning NBA fantasy team? With the season just starting up it's still not too late to get a league going. Here are some tips on drafting a winning fantasy team.
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).
Nobody’s perfect. Mistakes are bound to happen and so long as you learn from them, there’s opportunity to grow. As normal citizens, we can usually...
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.
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.
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.
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.

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:
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.
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?
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.

There is nothing better in the game of basketball than a good ol' fashioned "Poster Dunk". For those who don't know, the poster dunk is when the dunker throws down a slam on an opposing defender who attempted to block the lane to pick up a charge call..here is a good example of Kobe Bryant back in high school. Check out the top 10 "Poster Dunks."
It's fine to be passionate and inspiring, but every once in a while sports coaches in the professional, collegiate, and semi-pro world seems to take it one step too far. As the pressure begins to mount, blood boils, and tempers flare. Fans can always count on someone to blow their stack throughout the course of a season.
There is only one true objective in any sport: win a championship. But once in a while a superstar comes along and never reaches that plateau that he has strived years for. They've had great careers, but what's the point when players such as Adam Morrison and Jud Buechler have championship rings to show off and you don't. We now bring you the ten greatest NBA players to not have a championship.
Is it just us, or do football and basketball players keep getting mixed up in ridiculous weapons violations more and more these days? These stories are increasingly crazier by the year -- and are obvious proof that millions of dollars only increases your bank account total, not your IQ.
The 15th and 16th seeds of the 2010 NCAA Tournament have a ton of babes, but due to their less than stellar status on a national scale, their hotness factor goes unnoticed. Well, not anymore, as it’s time that COED gives The Babes of the Bottom Bracket their time to shine.
