The NBA Playoffs are finally (finally!) upon us. We made it, y’all. If you’re an NBA fan you’ve been ready since about the All-Star break. So to commemorate this monumental occasion, let’s take a look at the four things I want to see most when the NBA’s second season starts this Sunday(!). The Oklahoma City […]

Yeah Yeah, Duke Won…But I’m Still Getting These Jokes Off! Hater’s Post!

Ok, look…that was a great game. However, I can’t let this moment go without spreading more hate for Duke. Seriously, f*ck Duke. Here’s why: All the Black dudes on Duke’s team have the same haircut. And that’s super corny. Like one of them learned how to cut hair and they all just go to him […]

Money Where Your Mouth Is…Will Kentucky Win it All?

I love Cinderellas in the Final Four, but this is a dream matchup. You have everything: Big name programs? Check. Hall of Fame coaches? Yup. A chance at history? Kentucky could go 40-0. A team to root against? Duke is still Duke. I was going to watch the Final Four anyway, but this…this could be […]

#FullCourtreFRESH: How YOU Can Refurbish Basketball Courts in YOUR City

Refreshed_FCR%20Logo2-02

  You’ll have to indulge me on this one. I know the NCAA Basketball Tournament is about to start on Thursday. And I know I should be writing a post where I pick a winner (Kentucky) or complaining about a team that shouldn’t be in (Oklahoma State). But I’m not going to do that this […]

So who the Hell is the NBA MVP This Season?

Miami Heat's LeBron James holds the NBA's MVP trophy before Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round basketball playoff series against the Indiana Pacers in Miami

The NBA season is winding down, and one of the best stories to follow has been the MVP race. For the first time in a while, this race feels truly wide open. LeBron James is still the best player in the league, but it took him a while (and a strange two-week midseason vacation) to […]

It Finally Happened: The Worst Play in NBA History

PhilJacksonRings

There’s quite a bit going on in sports. The NFL offseason’s free agency has begun with a flurry of franchise taggings. The NBA’s MVP and postseason race has begun. And the MLB’s spring training has kicked off where it’s warm (jealous). But we have plenty of time to tackle that stuff. History was made in […]

The Official Scorecard: Manny Pacquiao is the People’s Choice on May 2nd

It finally happened. Our national nightmare is over. Floyd Mayweather is fighting Manny Pacquiao on May 2nd. I talked sh*t for years about not caring if this fight happened at all. But when I saw the alert on my phone, I definitely got excited. So I’m a hypocrite, but who cares? The fight is on! […]

3 Reasons NBA All-Star Weekend was Amazing…and Why it Sucked

This weekend was my first time experiencing NBA All-Star Weekend live. The weekend always falls on Valentine’s Day Weekend, and I spent eight straight years in college/Master’s/MBA programs nowhere near NBA cities. Add those together and I was either too broke or too whipped to attend the festivities live. That all changed this year. For […]

Readjusting the NBA Championship Contenders at the All-Star Break

Always looked like Pac Man to me as a kid :-/

(More than) Halfway through the NBA season, and things are upside down. The Hawks are good. The Warriors look like contenders. And every team that’s usually dominant has some flaw that gives you juuuuuuuust enough doubt to write them off. But someone has to win. And that’s what I’m here for. Time to recalibrate the […]

Is Tom Brady Now the Greatest Athlete of Our Generation?

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, the game's MVP, faces a throng of reporters and photographers on the field after his team's Super Bowl XLIX victory.

I was standing for six minutes after the Super Bowl ended. That was exhausting. The emotional swing from Jermaine Kearse’s amazing catch: to Malcolm Butler’s amazinger interception: was too much to handle. I could only imagine what that was like for a Seahawks fan. Thankfully I’m a Detroit Lions fan, so my emotions only swing […]
