    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    I’m a big fan of the NFL/HBO series “Hard Knocks,” which each year follows a team through training camp and the drama of season-ending injuries and the cut downs — guys are playing for their livelihood and there is inherent drama in that. It’s great television. But thanks to guaranteed contracts you can’t do the…

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference.

    Jan 30, 2014, 1:39 PM EDT
