5 NBA Playoff Storylines That Could Make Round 2 as Good as Round 1


That was the perfect first round. We got all the drama, overtimes, and four-point plays you could handle…except there was only one upset. I mean, an owner was banished from the league during the first round. Tough to top that. The danger with five series going seven games is the 38-win Atlanta Hawks might get […]

Donald Sterling Has Destroyed The Integrity Of The Game


By now we’ve heard the disparaging racist remarks by Donald Sterling. If you haven’t, then I’m sure you at least have a gist of the story. Just to bring you up to speed, check this out: Now the title of this post might come off as me painting with a broad brush. As a matter […]

Wait, Why Does Teddy Bridgewater Suck All of a Sudden?


Even in all the excitement of the NBA Playoffs, something worrisome caught my attention thanks to TV personality, Bomani Jones: What the hell happened to Teddy Bridgewater: possible top overall pick? It was all good just a year ago. Bridgewater was considered the best college quarterback at the start of last season. Unlike Matt Leinart […]

Thunder Up! How the OKC Thunder Will Win the NBA Championship


Since I write on Tuesdays here, I got to cheat and see Game 1 of every NBA playoff series early. So instead of putting my foot in my mouth like I did last week, I can say smart things like, “those Pacers still have a lot of work to do, smh.” This is going better […]

SBM Sports: The Indiana Pacers Have the #1 Seed…Can They Beat Miami?

pg13 dunk over heat

In one of the most anticlimactic playoff races in a while, it appears the Indiana Pacers will outlast the Miami Heat for the number one seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Pacers loudly proclaimed this to be their goal to start the season. They pushed Miami to Game 7 in last year’s playoffs, and […]

How Wrestlemania XXX Brought Me Closer to the WWE

Lesnar Belt

Well, it finally happened. The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania streak is over. 21-1. Daniel Bryan (YES!) won the event, but that’s almost an afterthought. I’m not a diehard wrestling fan by any means, but I couldn’t help being swept into the emotion of the moment. The event took over Twitter, and my friends, ranging in age from […]

SBM Sports: Why [Insert Team Here] Will Win the NCAA Championship


After the most exciting NCAA Tournament since…last season, we finally arrived at the Final Four. Since no one predicted these teams, except Florida, would get here (shout out to Warren Buffet), there’s no way anyone knows who will actually win. Since I’m terrible at predictions, I won’t guess either. Instead, I’ll make sure I’m right. […]

March Madness: The New Player Hater’s Ball


Another year, another worthless bracket. My picks aren’t even near my worst this year…and they suck. As things fell apart last weekend, I was faced with the question every sports fan has wrestled with: Do I root for the upset or my bracket? It took exactly 90 minutes for me to make my choice. Ohio […]

SBM Sports: How to Win $1 Billion

Ten thousand dollar stacks on money background

It’s time to cash out. Warren Buffett agreed to fleece Dan Gilbert put up $1 billion of his own money to anyone who completes a perfect bracket in the Quicken Loans sponsored challenge. Now, we all could obviously use an extra billion dollars. I’d be able to pay off about a quarter of my Sallie […]

Are the Miami Heat Giving Us Reasons to Doubt Them Again?


When LeBron James hosted The Decision in 2010, he instantly became the most hated player in the NBA. Except for that one person who randomly clapped when he announced his decision, pretty much everyone else felt he had taken a shortcut to basketball royalty. In the four years since, James and the Heat endured criticism […]
