    The conventional wisdom has been that part of the reason the Maloof brothers worked so hard to move their Sacramento Kings to Anaheim was to deal with debt problems — they were so overrun with debt in other areas of their lives they needed to moved the Kings to a higher-revenue place.

    New York Yankees v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Alex Rodriguez, maybe more than any other pro athlete, has walked a mile in LeBron James’ shoes. And he wants us to back off LeBron.

    tobias harris

    Tennessee freshman Tobias Harris to me symbolizes a lot of what we see in this draft — it’s a question of fit. He says he’s a three and he seemed more comfortable there in college, but there are questions if he is athletic enough to do that on the NBA level plus he only hit…

    Erik Spoelstra

    Given Heat coach Erik Spoelstra’s youth and relative lack of experience, people questioned whether he was the right person to coach the star-studded Miami Heat ever since the day of the “Decision.” Every time the Heat went through any sort of tough stretch this season, Spoelstra’s job security was questioned, and those questions are getting…
