Why Being In Your 20’s Is Awesome Mar. 22, 2012 By Ryan O’Connell I know I talk crap on being a twentysomething but I’m only half-kidding. In actuality, there’s no age I’d rather be. (Besides maybe seven years old because they don’t do anything besides eat ice cream and poop themselves. That sounds like an ideal life to be completely honest.) Being in your twenties is...

Week 2 Cowboys vs 49ers
vs 2 factors to take in consideration that can change the tide of this game. 1st would have to be offensive line. They must hold their end of the bargain and keep Tony from scrambling. A scrambling Romo is a fumbling stumbling Romo. 2nd is their corner backs. Let’s face it, it’s tough to throw out 4th and 5th stringers to cover starters. The Cowboys need to pray that at...

Lebron vs MJ. Whos better?
By Chris Palmer ESPN The Magazine Let’s not pretend the Michael Jordan-LeBron James debate is going away. It’ll rage as long as LeBron dares to push the boundaries of how good an individual player can be. Jordan is the standard for basketball excellence, so it’s only natural when an audacious, game-changing star comes along that he’s measured against the best ever. ...
In march, I placed a wager for the mavs to win it all. If this comes to fruition, drinks are on me!
Evolution Of Dirk Nowitzki: Reflecting On A Career...
Dirk Nowitzki is on the doorstep of ending the Los Angeles Lakers’ dynasty and changing the perceptions of his NBA career. But how did we get to this point with him? Is he really what we think he is? May 6, 2011 - The shot that may have provided the final dagger in the hearts of the Los Angeles Lakers’ dynasty probably didn’t come the way you expected. You figured it would...
Fast 5 Review
Cars, guns, women, and lots and lots of testosterone action in this 5th Rio De Janeiro installment. Any movie where you add Dwayne Johnson in with an all star cast of characters is bound to juice up the intrigue of the movie, which it surely does. Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Luda are all back as well, The setting in Brazil makes for some very beautiful scenery...
Right off the bat I’ll tell u that this is not one that will haunt you in your sleep for weeks on end, or render you immovable under the covers. What it is though is a great movie to get you startled, rattled, and a bit on edge as the movie progresses. While we all feel that those tactics make for a cheap thrill, James Wan does a surprisingly good job at mending and molding it all...
Interview: Aaron Cooper Details Huarache Trainer The original Nike Huarache Trainer has to this day stood out as an iconic piece of Nike’s history of innovation, and for good reason. A full-length neoprene inner sleeve, dramatic ankle cutaway and relatively minimal midfoot strap didn’t quite give off the impression of tremendous lockdown and support that most athletes were used to in...

The NBA, A-through-Z: Jordans By Kelly Dwyer
“J” is for “Jordans.” By the time I decided that I wanted a pair of Air Jordans — “Jordans,” in the parlance I grew up with — I knew more about Michael Jordan than any 8-year-old on the planet. This kid was well-versed. But, for whatever reason, those things never struck me as something to wear, despite my obsession with the best player on...
Nba 2k11. Get Ready.
What if the Portland Trail Blazers drafted Michael Jordan instead of Sam Bowie? It’s the question that has kept Blazer fans up at night for decades, but “NBA 2K11” is finally going to let you see what life is like with His Airness in the City of Roses. In fact, any NBA fan who ever dreamed of “Being like Mike,” or at least having Air Jordan leading their franchise...
So Holly and I went to Wal-Mart after church to get some supplies. While we were at a stop sign this man in a black suburban starts waving at me. Naturally I turn my head and tell Holly that this man is trying to get her attention. She then rolls down the passenger window (which was my side) and so I proceed to ask him what he wanted/need. He said he had some free donuts that he wanted to give out...
Melo vs Durant Article
In terms of full-time NBA small forwards, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant are the best in the biz. Look at the top three scorers in the NBA. Right behind LeBron James, the league’s best player, are two special guys with some common threads running between them. Both are small forwards on playoff-bound teams. Both had historic one-and-done runs in college: Carmelo Anthony led Syracuse to...
Promise fulfilled as Nowitzki reaches impressive plateau In an age when pre-teen players are scouted from the time they begin filling up hoops in middle school, there are very few surprises when it comes to identifying prospective NBA talent. Yet on one night in San Antonio, back in March of 1998, the echoes of basketballs bouncing off the walls were mixed with the sound of so many jaws...

KB24 or LBJ23
Kobe Bryant and LeBron James square off on Christmas Day (ABC, 5 p.m. ET). So it’s time to address the most frequently asked question in the NBA: Who’s better, Black Mamba or King James? Advanced stats clearly favor LeBron. On the other hand, NBA players say almost unanimously that Kobe is the game’s best. My task is to deliver a verdict using statistics and on-the-court...

ESPN Insider on the Dallas Mavericks
Things didn’t exactly go according to plan in Dallas, but the Mavs made the best of it. Clinging to their perch at the back end of the Western Conference’s elite, Dallas struggled out of the gate and squeezed little or nothing from most of its role players. The Mavs rode their star power and some successful tweaks by new coach Rick Carlisle to a 50-win season and a first-round upset...
Guarding MJ and LeBron Casey’s déjà vu experience while checking His Airness and His Highness. by Casey Jacobsen This is the story of the first time I met Michael Jordan and LeBron James. I didn’t meet them both on the same day, but the stories of my first encounters with these two basketball idols are eerily similar. Just like every kid who ever picked up a basketball in the 1980s, I was...
