Larry Bird Ruined The Indiana Pacers

The Indiana Pacers are broken, and Larry Bird has ruined them. Even if they continue to play the Cleveland Cavaliers closely in the remaining games of their first-round series, this team's window has closed.

NBA Playoff 2017: Three Observations And Three Overreactions

The 2017 NBA Playoffs have officially started, and the slate of Game 1's were some of the best playoff openers we've seen in a while. Until the Houston Rockets handily downed the OKC Thunder in the last of eight weekend tip-offs, each game was close entering the fourth quarter.

Why The Raptors Should Fear The Deer

There were more than a few people who picked the Toronto Raptors - especially as we continue to see Cleveland's vulnerability - to make it out of the East once the playoffs started. A torrid last month of coupled with the Cavs lackluster end to the season had a few trusted analysts riding the Raptors wave.

WBC: Fantasy Baseball's Crystal Ball

The World Baseball Classic is a flawed tournament (ridiculous pitch counts, missing stars, too much risk to MLB franchises for the players who do participate, and a cockamamie run differential rule that led to the horrendous brawl in Saturday's Canada-Mexico showdown).

The television factory has created genuinely viable superstars (Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson to name two) and given us some laughable moments ( William Hung, anyone?).

The Reality Blog: Bait and Switch

"I am not a quitter...and I believe in this city." - Jeffery H. Loria, March 2012. Naturally, Loria threw up the white flag less than a year later after his Florida Marlins (sorry, I can't call them the Miami Marlins because it turns out that was all a joke anyway) failed miserably in their first...
