Signing Alert – LeBron James to the Warriors

By joelb | February 1st, 2018

Signing Alert – LeBron James to the Warriors will never happen.   EVER. Once again ESPN shows that they are getting closer to The Onion in their reporting that to their roots as a station that reports the news.  Which is fine if that is the path that they are choosing to make money.  There is […]

By joelb | October 19th, 2017

The NBA 2017 – 2018 season is upon us.  Seems like last season just ended.  Actually it seems just like the last 3 seasons just ended.   What has really changed this year from the last three seasons.  Other than Kyrie Irving now being a Celtic not really a whole lot.   Did this trade make the Celtics […]

How many times are you excited for a sports season to start but by the end of it you just can’t wait for it to be over or just give up on it and think that it has already been over for a while? In the name of greed many of the Professional sports leagues […]

NBA = Fail

By joelb | October 10th, 2011

I was going to write a big story about how the NBA is blowing it.  How the players and the owners just do not get it. The title says it all, nothing more to say.
