No One Asked Me About the NBA, but…

No One Asked Me About the NBA, but…

1. Luke Walton, LA Lakers, is my early pick for NBA Coach of the Year. 2. Gregg Popovich, coach San Antonio Spurs, loses Tim Duncan … keeps winning! 3. There is no defense for Steph Curry, Golden State Warriors, just hoping he misses. 4. I underrated the LA Clippers; they are leading the Western Division […]

Nobody asked me about the Olympic medal count, but…

So, the USA won the ‘medal count’ in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. That said, I need to put in a disclaimer before going any further: I am a sworn enemy of the way Olympic medals are counted. Some list the nations by gold medals. Some list by total medals. There used to […]

Even without LeBron James and Stephen Curry, this United States senior men’s basketball team is capable of creating […]

Nobody asked me about Wilt Chamberlain, but …

In this piece by one Scott Harris, he says, more or less, that 7’2″ Wilt Chamberlain would be irrelevant in today’s game of basketball because centers are no longer important. Of course, if 6’11” Andre Jordan of the LA Clippers, quite similar to Chamberlain for athleticism, can play today … well, trust me, Wilt could […]
