Being Overweight Is Cool Now?

By manny osborne, published on Jul 16, 2007

...and, sad to say a nation of fatties, the world's most overweight people. Europeans laugh at obese American tourists as they waddle down the street." So if Mo'nique gets in the mind of a teen girl that being overweight is cool instead of teaching her how to fight it America is going to get fatter and unhealthy. in the other hand there is Shaquille O'neal the NBA super star with his won TV show doing something for obese kids and that's the right thing to do. So been overweight isn't cool Mo'nique but more than being cool isn't healthy, and that's the main concern the health of our kids. (more)

NBA Free Agency Free-for-All

By dsnyder, published on Jul 6, 2007

...agreed to a four-year deal worth 24 million dollars with the Toronto Raptors. For anyone who says that is too much for a white guy with a sick three point shot, I think Bryan Colangelo knows what he’s doing. Kapono used the time that Dwayne Wade was out this year to shine, and lead the NBA in three point shooting percentage. The Raptors young talented roster should be a perfect fit for the type of distance shooting he showed off last season. Rashard Lewis is reportedly on his way to Orlando for a fat maxed out, $75-million, contract. Playing alongside Dwight Howard, they form... (more)

The All-Star Game, a Mid-Summer Tear Jerker

By dsnyder, published on Jul 4, 2007

...2.The home field advantage rule is unfair 3.The voting process is flawed As far as the first one, that is a no win battle with sports writers and fans. The Midsummer Classic has the highest ratings and market share of any other professional sports all-star game. It destroys the Pro Bowl, NBA All-Star Weekend, and the NHL, well, come on, it’s the NHL. The ratings have been slipping over the last 16 years. However, 14,000,000 households still tuned in for the game in 2006. All the event would need to do to increase the ratings would be to cater to the new breed of American... (more)

JRich is Headed to Bobcats

By robertanchor, published on Jun 29, 2007

... the question as to why the Warriors organization felt that a trade containing one of its " Key franchise players" was good enough to roll the dice on. Before the trade took place in later rounds there was a lot of talk about Michael Jordan who recently made his way back into managing side of the NBA with the Bobcats, wanting to bring in a veteran who has already established himself a versatile NBA ready Player. Jason Richardson, who has proven that he can be the type of guy to step up big on the court and be a leader in the locker room seems to have been the best move that the Charlotte... (more)

Irreconcilable Differences

By Tyler Langness, published on Jun 26, 2007

Three years ago, the Los Angeles Lakers were standing at the edge of their collective precipice, preparing for a fall from grace. They had just lost the NBA championship to the Detroit Pistons in five games, and the organization was at a crossroads. The rift between Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal had widened beyond repair, and even hardened veterans Gary Payton and Karl Malone had grown weary of the Hollywood drama. Changes were imminent for the NBA's marquee team, and it's up-and-coming superstar, Kobe Bryant, wanted to see what direction they were heading. So, he sat down for an exit interview... (more)

Party Time At The Playboy Jazz Festival

By Ricky Ricardo, published on Jun 20, 2007

Festival Productions organizers of the 29th Annual Playboy Jazz Festival (presented by L.A. Philharmonic Association) were fortunate enough to have a distraction free Fathers Day weekend June 16-17, 2007. The NBA Finals was finished two days before the festival. Paris Hilton was resting comfortably in her jail cell. The weather was pleasantly warm with a Caribbean breeze hovering over the Historic Hollywood Bowl for this year’s highly anticipated jazz festival of the summer. The festival got under way with the Eagle Rock High School Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Greg Samuel. The band... (more)

It's Time to Flip the House that LeBron Built

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 11, 2007

Tony Parker scored 30 points, Manu Ginobili had 25 and Tim Duncan added 23 as the Spurs showed the Cleveland Cavs how championship basketball is played for 3½ quarters, overpowering the young Cavaliers 103-92 in Game 2 on Sunday night to take a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals. San Antonio clearly illustrated just how superior they are in almost every way conceivable -- building a 29-point lead and then cruising in the fourth quarter -- when the Cavaliers stormed back within eight points before the Spurs finally put them away late in the game. "That's why sometimes I don't like to have a 20-point... (more)

2007 NBA Draft: Lottery Logistics

By Theblueswink, published on Jun 1, 2007

The NBA's 2007 draft lottery occurred on May 22nd and determined the order of selection of the top 14 picks in the upcoming draft that will take place on Thursday, June 28th in New York City. This year's lottery was bound to be particularly impactful due to the depth and star potential of the 2007 draft class (brought about, in part, by the fact that the new draft eligibility age limit began to be imposed in 2006, effectively adding additional prospects to the 2007 draft). The consensus top two draft picks this year are highly coveted and likely superstar big men Greg Oden and Kevin Durant. As... (more)

Sweet Pride O' Mine

By RG Daniels, published on May 23, 2007

...that seemed like 209 points). In 1996, we did it again with a team that included Shaquille O’Neal, Gary Payton, and Grant Hill among others. The 2000 Games netted the same result. However, following that victory a change began to take place not just with U.S.A. basketball, but in the NBA as well. More and more international players began to get drafted stateside and the game of basketball became a global entity based solely on the efforts of commissioner David Stern to market it. The heart of U.S.A. basketball would never be the same. Injuries and fatigue decimated team... (more)

What's the Story with Robert Horry?

By Ed Attanasio, published on May 15, 2007

...Whenever I see this type of goon mentality, it makes me ill, because it goes against everything that’s good and still unadulterated in sports – like sportsmanship and fair play. What kind of message does this send to kids who happened to be watching the game? Shame on you, Robert Horry. As a veteran of the league, you should know better. You pulled a punk move and deserve whatever punishment the NBA decides to give you. If I were the Phoenix Suns, I’d be eagerly anticipating your return. I don’t condone violence in any way, but payback’s a bitch! (more)
