  • 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.

  • The 12 Dumbest Convicted Athletes

    With Plaxico Burress having just been sentenced to two years in jail for possessing and discharging a firearm in a public space, we are reminded that these masters of the field and the court are just people, too. They make mistakes, and have to pay for them. However, sometimes the mistakes they make are so hilariously idiotic, we can't help but make fun of them. Here are the 12 Dumbest Convicted Athletes.

  • 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.

  • Ridiculously Awesome Trampoline Dunks

    I'm a fairly athletic person; however, I've never been a good basketball player: during my entire two year stint playing the game in elementary school, I scored a whopping one point. Yes, one.

  • The Bulls Must Really Hate Tim Thomas

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?

    Last week, highly coveted Orlando Magic free agent Hedo Turkoglu visited the Portland Trail Blazers, and apparently left the Pacific Northwest after agreeing to a 5-year, $50M deal. 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?

  • Pistons Fire Curry; Laimbeer To Restore Bad Boy Era?

    The Detroit Pistons fired coach Michael Curry after one disappointing season that saw the Pistons fall from six consecutive Eastern Conference Finals appearances to a 39-43 record and a treacherous four-game exit in the first round of the playoffs.

  • Lakers vs Magic: Preview to the 2009 NBA Finals

    It's not a Kobe/Lebron matchup as many fans (and NBA commissioner David Stern) may have pined for, but tonight, the Los Angeles Lakers and Orlando Magic square off in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

    Throughout the majority of this NBA season, all of the Finals talk has been focused on only four teams, and really only three potential matchups - a Celtics vs. Lakers rematch, a LeBron vs. Kobe clash of the titans, and even an Adonal Foyle vs. DJ Mbenga bench big man battle on the blocks. But why is nobody bringing up perhaps the best possible head-to-head battle imaginable?
