The NBA. Coming soon, December 25. A deal has been reached and 66 games have been saved. NBA bloggers (including yours truly) can return to blogging about how J.R. Smith is a lazy fool and if Andrew Bynum can be a superstar. No longer do we have to mention the word “lockout” in a blog post [...]
The owners made their last good offer to the players, giving them a 50-50 deal and a 72-game season starting mid-December. However, will the players take the deal, or not? ESPN.com said that the players will unlikely accept the deal that was proposed. When David Stern talked about the deal, Derek Fisher said that the [...]
The NBA season is in danger. With some speculating the season might be canceled indefinitely, NBA nuts across the country (including myself) are getting pretty upset at the entire lockout ordeal.

Classic fiscal conservatism at work here, guys. Of course, as soon [...]
Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and we get a winner. The Dallas Mavericks knocked off the Miami Heat in a surprising and comeback series for Mavs fans.

There’s reasons for this. Sure it has something to do with the emergence of social media and overall coverage of current day events, but it was really because of the creation of a dream team, and the good vs. evil that comes as a result.
It had to have intrigued you because it’s all that sports fans want to discuss and it shows that you were watching every second of it last night.
When asked about missing the rest of the season because of a stress fracture in his left ankle, Houston Rockets center Yao Ming told ESPN he was just fine with it, thank you. “I haven’t died. Right now I’m drinking a beer and eating fried chicken. What were you expecting, a funeral? Right now, I [...]
